    Tens of thousands of new tricks for existing drugs – Which drugs can we use for different diseases than initially intended for?

    Thousands of drugs have the potential to be effective against other diseases than they were developed for. New scientific work points to ca. 30.000 such cases. One is currently used to treat schizophrenia but holds great potential for treating tuberculosis as well.

    Finally, the 10 billion-year mathematical brain teaser has been solved

    If there were no computers, this task would have required 10 billion years of a mathematician’s waking time. Luckily, however, there is a supercomputer at SDU and the task is therefore solved. The results have significance for our confidence in all the large and small electronic devices which control our everyday lives.

    På vej mod bedre behandling af blærebetændelse

    Hvert år bliver 200-300.000 danskere behandlet for blærebetændelse, men til trods for den massive udbredelse, er sygdommen stadig et videnskabeligt mysterium. Nu er det lykkedes et forskerhold at afdække, hvordan de ansvarlige bakterier får sygdommen til at udvikle sig. Det giver fornyet håb om mere effektive behandlingsmetoder.

    Ageing: Computer simulation finds dangerous molecule activity

    All human organisms are attacked by free radicals – they destroy our cells, and over time they contribute to us ageing. Now, researchers have found out how a particularly dangerous type of free radicals is formed, and it may lead to a better understanding of ageing.
