Implantable 'tea bag' releases insulin for children with diabetes

Implantable 'tea bag' releases insulin for children with diabetes

Children with Type 1 diabetes have only one option to control their blood sugar: insulin treatment. Ravaged by an autoimmune disease that attacks their own pancreas and islets -- microscopic clusters of cells that sense blood sugar and produce insulin -- patients are forced to rely on insulin from an external source.

Your body is your internet -- and now it can't be hacked

Someone could hack into your pacemaker or insulin pump and potentially kill you, just by intercepting and analyzing wireless signals. This hasn't happened in real life yet, but researchers have been demonstrating for at least a decade that it's possible.

Electrifying wound care: Better bandages to destroy bacteria

Bandages infused with electricity can help heal wounds faster than typical bandages or antibiotics--but for years, researchers have not really understood why. A recent study is offering new clues about the science behind those bandages, and researchers say the findings could help lead to better wound treatment.
