Silo Pharma’s partner, Zylo Therapeutics, yielded positive results in reducing neuropathic nerve pain in a small animal study.

Silo Pharma, Inc., a development-stage biopharmaceutical company today announced that its topically administered Ketamine reached a positive end point in an animal study. Silo’s formulation reduced mechanical allodynia and hyperalgesia at both the pre-and post-dosing time points, and mechanical hyperalgesia was reduced on day seven at the pre-dose time point. These results indicate that the dosing of Ketamine using a patent protected delivery system with Silo Pharma’s partner, Zylo Therapeutics, yielded positive results in reducing neuropathic nerve pain […]

Robot Designed to Tunnel Through the Earth Incredibly Fast Using Plasma

If Cali-based startup EarthGrid has its way, downed power lines and faulty electric transformers may soon be a problem of the past. Science and tech pub New Atlas explained the company’s patent-pending process on Thursday and said the plasma boring robot it’s developing can dig underground tunnels as much as 100 times faster than the competition, all while costing about 98 percent less. “Imagine a robot with ten light sabers on the front, vaporizing through rock and soil,” founder […]

This New Plasma Boring Robot Can Dig Tunnels 100 Times Faster And 98% Cheaper

San Francisco-based startup Earthgrid is developing a plasma boring robot that can dig tunnels 100 times faster, and up to 98 percent cheaper than existing boring systems, a report from New Atlas reveals. The company aims to employ its technology to re-wire energy, internet, and utility grids in the U.S. Unlike conventional boring machines, which typically use massive cutting wheels to slowly excavate tunnels, Earthgrid’s robot blasts rocks with high temperatures to break and even vaporize them via a […]

Lyfebulb-CVS Kidney Care Innovation Challenge winner OmniLife is transforming organ donation

For too long, treatment options for chronic kidney disease have remained unchanged. This has left the disease under-diagnosed and with outdated treatments that fail to meet patient needs — exacerbating deep inequities within kidney health. We cannot make change happen alone. Instead, we need ideas and insights from those impacted most by kidney disease. Inspired by this idea, we partnered with Lyfebulb to host the first Lyfebulb-CVS Kidney Care Innovation Challenge, bringing together ten inspiring organizations led by patient […]

Wasabi’s ‘hot cloud storage’ gains traction as data security strategies evolve

On May 7, 2021, the computerized gas, diesel and home heating fuel system owned by Colonial Pipeline Inc. was hit by a ransomware attack that forced a shutdown of operations. With its impact on Colonial’s more than 5,500 miles of pipeline, the attack led to panic buying and long lines at gas stations throughout the Eastern U.S. and disrupted airline services at many airports for nearly a week. The brazen attack raised greater awareness around immutability, a process in […]

Earthgrid aims to re-wire the USA using super-cheap tunnel tech

Bay Area startup Earthgrid says it’s developing a plasma boring robot that can dig underground tunnels 100x faster and up to 98% cheaper than existing tech, and it plans to use it to start re-wiring America’s energy, internet and utilities grids. You can do this without touching the rock walls at all, so the equipment can do entire tunnels without stopping if necessary. It can run entirely on electrical power, opening up the possibility of entirely emissions-free drilling, and […]

Landsdowne Labs Awarded Competitive NSF Grant to Develop Novel Battery Coating

Landsdowne Labs, LLC, a spinout from the laboratories of MIT and Harvard scientists Drs. Robert Langer and Jeffrey Karp, has been awarded a $256,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to further develop and design a novel battery coating to help prevent injury and reduce risk to the thousands of children who ingest batteries each year. “Every year, thousands of children swallow ‘button batteries’ —small, high density, coinlike batteries increasingly used in consumer devices,” said Melissa Fensterstock, the […]
