Researchers have developed a gel-based cartilage substitute to relieve achy knees that’s even stronger and more durable than the real thing. Mechanical testing reveals that their hydrogel -- a material made of water-absorbing polymers -- can be pressed and pulled with more force than natural cartilage, and is three times more resistant to wear and tear. Implants made of the material are currently being tested in sheep, with human clinical trials to start in 2023.

By flying with hawkmoths during migration, scientists reveal the insects employ sophisticated flight strategies similar to vertebrates
JMIR Publications published a study titled “Competition and Integration of US Health Systems in the Post-COVID-19 New Normal: Cross-sectional Survey” in JMIR Formative Research, which reported that the smaller the geographical region in which mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity is pursued, the higher the likelihood that monopolistic tendencies will result.
