Ammonia saved the world once; it might do it again. A century ago, the world faced a looming food crisis. A booming population was pushing farmers to grow crops faster than nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil could keep up, and the South American deposits of guano and natural nitrates they applied as fertilizer were dwindling.
Lipids are an unsung component in the two mRNA-based shots, the only vaccines to be approved so far in the US. Naked mRNA quickly degrades in the body and can trigger an unwanted immune reaction. To get the genetic material to its target cells, vaccine developers combine it with a mixture of several sophisticated lipids to form lipid nanoparticles, or LNPs. mRNA vaccine producers use a package of 4 lipids to formulate their LNPs
An unprecedented push to manufacture billions of doses this year alone has led to supply bottlenecks, putting firms such as Pfizer and AstraZeneca Plc in the firing line of angry government customers. Now the industry is taking heat for closely guarding its intellectual property.
Australian company, Vaxine Pty Ltd, has developed a protein based COVID-19 vaccine that completely blocks virus transmission to non-immune individuals.
As consciousness about nutrition, health rises in post-COVID world, demand for Organic Food is set to surge
If one positive could be drawn out of the devastating global COVID 19 crisis, it is the fact that this calamitous pandemic has made people more conscious about the need for healthier lifestyles, nutrition as well as their environmental footprint.
India’s devastating Covid-19 crisis is threatening operations at some of its biggest ports, raising concerns. The action could trigger shipping delays that reverberate through global supply chains.
A team of driven, concerned, caring citizens who decided to make a difference!
Molnupiravir – An investigational antiviral treatment developed in oral dosage form to fight against coronavirus and future pandemics:
Over the last year, several drugs have either been developed or tested to treat coronavirus. Now there’s another new antiviral drug that’s showing some promise by demonstrating ability to stop SARS-CoV-2 transmission within 24 hour!
Looking within a short-term horizon, the outlook for container shipping over the next 2-3 months appears relatively well-known, although certainly not well-liked by shippers. In essence, we will continue to see a situation of bottleneck problems, capacity shortages and high pressure on rates. This is, hopefully, not a surprise to anyone now.
An efficient, versatile linker is developed for the synthesis of C-terminal primary/secondary amides and hydrazides as well as peptide alcohols, which is compatible with solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) and suppresses side reactions. It is termed as Ramage Linker.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the major greenhouse gases causing global warming. If carbon dioxide could be converted into energy, it would be killing two birds with one stone in addressing the environmental issues. A new photocatalyst is developed recently, which can produce methane fuel (CH4) selectively and effectively from carbon dioxide using sunlight. According to this research, the quantity of methane produced was almost doubled in the first 8 hours of the reaction process.
Reliable temperature-controlled coronavirus vaccine logistics require smooth integration of all those involved as well as materials that provide good insulation. As the range of coronavirus vaccines grows, so do the requirements for their distribution. The different vaccines need to be stored and transported at different temperature ranges – often together in the same vehicle or cold store. Handling complex processes like this is routine for leading logistics companies. But they depend on the skills of packaging providers and raw materials suppliers.
