But what do those risks actually entail? What might they look like?The latest study offers answers to those questions -- questions regulators at the Federal Aviation Administration and elsewhere are likely to pose as they consider whether or not to grant UASs greater access to airspace.Using a crash test dummy, Virginia Tech researchers analyzed the potential risk of head and neck injuries posed by three commercially available d...

A first: Drug lowers heart risks by curbing inflammation

Health
For the first time, a drug has helped prevent heart attacks by curbing inflammation, a new and very different approach than lowering cholesterol, the focus for many years. People on the drug also had surprisingly lower cancer death rates, especially from lung cancer. An anti-tumor effect is an exciting possibility, but it needs much more study because the heart experiment wasn't intended to test that. Doctors say the results on the drug, canakinumab (can-uh-KIN-yoo-mab), open a new frontier. Many heart attacks occur in people whose cholesterol is normal and whose main risk is chronic inflammation that can lead to clogged arteries. "We suddenly know we can address the inflammation itself, the same way we learned almost 25 years ago that we could address cholesterol. It's very exciting," sa...
