Russian researchers have developed a new type of composite nanoparticles, which successfully deliver porphyrines (for combating cancer) to target tissues. Luminescence can enhance photodynamic effect and helps control distribution of nanoparticles in living tissues.


Natural resources will definitely end sometimes, and we seem to get buried under giant heaps of rubbish. Where mankind should put all these wastes? Many countries have found a nice solution for this burning problem and even get profit of it. Russia recently also started working in this direction.


In our everyday life we spend a good deal of time being under influence of weak electromagnetic radiation it can come from mobile phones or microwave ovens, for instance. Active debates about possible danger of this type of radiation take place all over the world. New facts on the subject arrive from Russian researchers.


Scientists and farmers actively seek the answer to the question whether changing of feeding conditions can affect edibility characteristics of chicken eggs. Russian researchers are now one step closer to finding the right answer.


Russian researchers discovered that light, which got through a light-adjusting film, has stimulated biochemical activity of oil-degrading bacteria of genus Pseudomonas: Pseudomonas stutzeri and Pseudomonas putida.


When we hear the word radiation, we are often scared, because of atomic bombs and Fukushima nuclear power plant. People should not worry small radiation doses can make bodies transparent in order to find ailing parts, as well as search for dangerous objects in luggage and heal malignant tumors.


Russian researchers from Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology know how to make activated carbon filters for purifying air from petrol vapours and light-end oil products from fruit pits and nut shells.


A Russian astrophysicist suggests that our Universe never started with the Big Bang. Data, he obtained in his observations, can destroy existing theory of how our Universe had been born.


Wastes from large industrial enterprises are often extremely harmful for the environment and human health. Waste waters of Kazan Optical Mechanics Plant, for instance, are mainly polluted by heavy metal ions from a galvanizing room and synthetic surfactants from an optical room. Heavy metal ions are much more dangerous for our health, than synthetic surfactants (SS).


Hydrocarbons still give up to 90 per cent of energy, consumed by the mankind. We try to reduce usage of oil and natural gas, at the same time trying to find alternative energy sources and to make the best use of already known sources.


Russian physicists and physiologists have developed a technique for recognition of things people imagine, by means of electroencephalography. NeuroG technology was created by researchers from faculty of physics of Moscow State University and the Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology of Russian academy of sciences.


Our heart provides blood supply in our organism via two simultaneous mechanisms. Systemic circuit brings oxygenated blood to all organs and tissues, removing carbon dioxide from them at the same time. Pulmonary circuit is responsible for delivering blood from heart to lungs this mechanism enriches blood with oxygen and cleans it of carbon dioxide. A great mystery of our life is how enormous volumes of blood tend to get oxygen-enriched in lungs within very short periods of time. Little is known about blood microcirculation in lungs.


A technology, known as reflective microscopy, is especially useful for working in soft X-ray radiation range, in which laboratory X-ray lasers and free-electron lasers already work. Researchers from the laboratory of X-ray optics of the Lebedev Institute of Physics currently search for solutions for a parabolic equation with initial conditions, preset on surfaces of various forms and orientations.


Superconductors are known to have zero electric resistance under conditions of extremely low temperatures. Electron flow, responsible for formation of electric current, moves in these conducting materials without colliding with atoms of their crystal lattices, thus without any heating losses. Nowadays superconductors are used for building high-capacity magnets for expensive research equipment and for high-precision diagnostic medical devices.


Good news, everyone who lives in the regions with cold climate Russian researchers have developed special additives, which help improve quality of local materials and make them suitable for making frost-proof bricks.


Many repair works in our organisms are performed by hard workers, known as stromal progenitor cells, which participate in forming new tissues and extracellular matrix. When we get old, we lose the majority of these cells, which causes bone thinning in elder people, for instance. Russian medics and microbiologists have found out that age-related changes in the population of stromal progenitor cells was not caused only by decreasing numbers of these cells, but also by inhibiting their activity by an organism himself.


Oil under the ground is often contained in so-called collectors layers of porous rocks. In order to reach black oil engineers drill wells, to which oil travels from surrounding rocks through highly porous and permeable rocks and later gets extracted. During drilling of wells or after a long-term well operation pores of oil-bearing rocks get clogged and large amount of oil is left inside the Earth forever. Such clogging is also known as wall cake or filter cake.


Erythropoietin-based treating agents are often used for therapy of anemia, caused by various severe diseases. However, these treating agents have strong side effects. Russian medics know how to treat erythropoietin in order to maintain its efficiency, but eliminate unwanted side effects.


Russian researchers have synthesized a 22-component RNA (ribonucleic acid), which demonstrated hampering of cancer cells growth and promoting synthesis of interferon, part of an immune system.


Search for promising treating agents has come a long way from testing all possible substances, hoping, that something would help, to making treatment with given properties in near future. Currently we are between these two stages with choosing from several hundreds substances and then modifying best of them by chemical means.
