Russian scientists commented in the interview with "Izvestiya" the possibility of treatment COVID-19 with radiation therapy, expressing doubts about the safety of this method.
The possibility of treatment of coronavirus infection in a similar way previously made by scientists from the US and Canada. So, according to experts from the canadian Cancer centre Jack ady, low-dose x-rays can help against pneumonia, which is often a consequence of coronavirus infection, the study was published in the journal of the European society for radiotherapy and Oncology 6 April. The research group of the cancer Institute of Emory University (USA) has tested the experimental technique on ten patients with coronavirus and pneumonia, the result of irradiated patients recovered four times faster, with side effects, the authors did not reveal.
Moscow state University named after Lomonosov was the best Russian universities in subject rankings Academic ranking of world universities (ARWU) in physics, told RIA Novosti the organizers.
The company ShanghaiRanking Consultancy published a Global University ranking by subject areas (GRAS) for 2020. Since 2009, the company publishes a version of the Academic ranking of world universities (ARWU) by subject area. This release contains a ranking of universities in 54 subject areas in the following categories: natural Sciences, engineering science, nature, medicine and social Sciences. The research was attended by over four thousand universities.
At electron-positron SuperKEKB Collider in Japan, achieved a record luminosity. The experiments were attended by Russian scientists from the Institute of nuclear physics. G. I. Budker SB RAS and Novosibirsk state University. The results published on the official website of the organization.
The luminosity characterizing the efficiency of collision of the beams, is the number of interactions occurring per unit time. The previous record luminosity is 2.14 x 1034 per square centimeter per second was achieved for a proton-proton Collider LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at the European organization for nuclear research CERN in 2018.
