Chinese Researchers Identify Gene Variant That Reduces Bad Cholesterol[Jun 12, 2018]

Chinese researchers have identified a gene variant that can reduce cholesterol absorption to lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), known as "bad" cholesterol, high levels of which may cause cardiovascular disease. The finding may provide a new means for designing targeted therapies for cholesterol-related diseases.

Scientists Find Artificial Cream Substitute[Jun 11, 2018]

Chinese scientists have developed a substitute for artificial cream that has a similar taste but contains no harmful trans fat, a major culprit in cardiovascular diseases. Using peanut protein microgel particles as an emulsifier, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences developed emulsion with 87 percent fat content-higher than any other existing edible emulsions-suggesting a high resemblance to artificial creams. The academy and University of Hull in the United Kingdom cooperated on the research.

Chinese, French Scientists Develop a One-Two Punch for Cancer Treatment[Jun 07, 2018]

Chinese and French scientists found a potential way using tiny gas bubbles induced by exposure to ultrasonic waves to at once deliver drug and block tumor growth. They discovered the dual use of gas embolotherapy, a therapy that cuts off the blood vessels that feed tissue growth by acoustic droplet vaporization (ADV). The study was published on Tuesday in the journal Applied Physics Letters.

Chinese Researchers Use Waste Corneal Lenses to Treat Eye Disease[Jun 06, 2018]

Chinese researchers are celebrating a breakthrough in the treatment of eye disease by using "waste" corneal lenses after laser surgery for near- and far-sightedness. They has improved visual acuity of a patient with corneal disease, by implanting a corneal lens extracted from a donor's eye after a laser surgery. The study has been published in the Journal of Refractive Surgery.

China Plans More Meteorological Satellites by 2025[Jun 06, 2018]

China plans to send 11 more meteorological satellites into orbit by 2025 to further improve its weather forecasting accuracy and ability to cope with natural hazards. The planned satellites include three Fengyun-3 satellites in polar orbit, two Fengyun-4 satellites in geostationary orbit, one dawn-dusk orbit climate satellite, one high-precision greenhouse gas detection satellite and one hyper-spectral satellite.

China Launches Meteorological Satellite to Benefit Belt and Road Countries[Jun 06, 2018]

China launched the new Fengyun-2H meteorological satellite to improve the accuracy of weather forecasting and provide better meteorological services to countries participating in the Belt and Road Initiative. The Fengyun-2H was launched on a Long March-3A rocket at 9:07 p.m., Beijing Time, from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province.
