Oral cancer and the way it spreads will be the focus of a new research project at the University of Sheffield’s School of Clinical Dentistry.

Review published in The Cochrane Library
Zinc supplements reduce the severity and duration of illness caused by the common cold, according to a systematic review published in The Cochrane Library. The findings could help reduce the amount of time lost from work and school due to colds.
Scientists at Queen’s University Belfast have pioneered a new needle-free test to take the sting out of medicine testing in premature babies.
The research will not only lead to greater accuracy in prescribing, but will also significantly reduce the trauma of such tests for newborn infants and their families.
