Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have long suffered a bad rap. An overdose of ROS is detrimental and causes a state of oxidative stress. But eliminating them isn’t the answer either as our bodies need ROS for basic survival. Moreover, ROS are essential to immune system function, and act to combat perceived threats to the body. However, a lot is unknown about the role of ROS signaling in immune responses, especially in a diseased state.

Beware the Specification Trap

November 3rd, 2016

Comparing the specifications of things is a powerful approach to help us to decide what to buy. Bigger, smaller, faster, simpler – if you have the spec data at your fingertips decision making is easy, right? Well, only if the data is objective and trustworthy, and only if you know exactly what parameters are important to you and how to weight them. And how do you score more subjective things like usability and aesthetics? Obvious points I know, but there’s more to this than meets the eye…
