Abstract In this paper, we will describe a novel lable-free electrochemiluminescent (ECL) immunosensor for the detection of glutamate decarboxylase antibody (GADA) in which Au nanoparticles (AuNPs) had pre-functionalized the indium tin oxide (ITO) glass to support the sensing interface. The preparation of the basal electrode only need a simple two-step drop coating, a thin polymer of hydrolyzed 3-aminopropyl trimethoxysilane, and the AuNPs gel on the ITO substrate. The AuNPs not only enhanced the ECL signal of luminol, but also acted to immobilize the glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) to build the sensing host. This i...

Researchers find inclination to buy sugary drinks reduces with graphic tooth decay warningGraphic health warnings like those on cigarette packets, showing rows of rotten teeth on cans of cola and other sugary drinks, could deter some young adults from buying them, a study has shown.Sugary drinks are blamed for fuelling the obesity epidemic, but in spite of the large quantities of sugar they contain – nine teaspoons in a can of Coca Cola – they do not carry a red traffic-light warning, which is voluntary in the UK.

In a recent paper, researchers provided evidence to suggest that the risk factors associated with cardiovascular decline with age interact with amyloid-β in the brain to accelerate cognitive decline. Having more of both produces a worse prognosis, which is not all that surprising. This is the case in many areas of aging and age-related disease: forms of damage and dysfunction interact with one another, making consequences worse than would be the case if they were independent of one another. This is one of the reasons why aging is an accelerating process, starting off slow and picking up pace ever more rapidly as the d...
