Airports By Country Name

Nanotubes. For centuries, people knew pure carbon in two forms, diamond and graphite. Diamond is three-dimensional matrix of carbon atoms in which each atom is bonded to four others in a tetrahedral arrangement. Graphite on the other

Will The Hep-C Drug, Sovaldi, Drive Gilead To The Top Of The Biopharm Industry?

Gilead has been making a lot of headlines lately with its new drug for hepatitis C, Sovaldi. This is an interferon-free oral drug that eliminates this virus in a large number of patients. This alone would be notable, but Gilead is going one step better. It is developing a combination of Sovaldi with another of its drugs, GS-5816 and this promises to cure all types of hepatitis C with a single pill. This has been the dream of anti-viral researchers for decades.

Gileads RD innovation and creativity in the Sovaldi family of drugs is also anticipated to bring tremendous financial success. He further predicts that Sovaldi could be the highest selling drug of all time, surpassing the record of $12. 9 billion set by Lipitor, s LDL-cholesterol lowering drug (now generic).

Rather than being lauded for discovering a major breakthrough therapy, Gilead instead has been under the gun about its pricing for this drug, which is $84,000 for a course of therapy. Herper reports that members of Congre...

Heat‐conducting polymer cools hot electronic devices at 200 degrees C

Heat‐conducting polymer cools hot electronic devices at 200 degrees C

The new thermal interface material could be used to draw heat away from electronic devices in servers, automobiles, high-brightness LEDs and certain mobile devices. The material is fabricated on heat sinks and heat spreaders and adheres well to devices, potentially avoiding the reliability challenges caused by differential expansion in other thermally-conducting materials. "Thermal management schemes can get more complicated as devices get smaller," said Baratunde Cola, an assistant professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

"A material like this, which could also offer higher reliability, could be attractive for addressing thermal managemen...
