A bioabsorbable drug-eluting stent developed by Abbott treats coronary artery disease and is absorbed into the walls of treated arteries within two years. It leaves behind blood vessels that appeared to move and function similar to normal arteries.
In this video, the researchers demonstrate a few applications that could be incorporated with their pressure-sensitive touch pad, dubbed the UnMousePad. The researchers connect the pad to a computer and display to create a map of the intensity and location of pressure points. The pad can also be used to draw with fingers, write with a stylus, sculpt virtual globes, and control electronic musical equipment.
A rotating three-dimensional view of an HIV infected T cell (green) forming virological synapses with three healthy CD4+ cells (red). The viral structural protein, shown in green, accumulates in button-shaped structures at the contact sites.
This movie shows high speed imaging of HIV transfer across a virological synapse. The video begins with a still view of two T cells with transmitted light and an outline of a spot where a synaptic button has formed between them. The movie then shows the movement of fluorescent viral protein into the synaptic button, followed by transfer of material from the button into the target cells. Note the movie focuses on the movement of the viral protein without indicating the outlines of the recipient cell.
