Researchers discover intact brain cells of man killed by Mt Vesuvius eruption

A team of researchers in Italy discovered the intact brain cells of a young man who died in the Mount Vesuvius eruption in A.D. 79.The brain's cell structure was visible to researchers (who used an electron microscope) in a glassy, black material found inside the man's skull. The material was likely the victim's brain preserved through the process of vitrification in which the intense heat followed by rapid cooling turned the organ to glass. Almost 2,000 years ago, Mount Vesuvius — located on t...

COVID-related delays to CRC screening causing 11.9% rise in death rates, research reveals

New research has shown that delays in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening caused by COVID-19 has resulted in significantly increased death rates for the cancer. Researchers at the University of Bologna produced a model to forecast the impact of time delays in CRC screening on CRC mortality caused by COVID-19. The results found that moderate (7-12 months) and large (>12 months) delays in screening caused a 3% and 7% increase in advanced stage CRC respectively.
