    25 Years of Ozone Warnings: Record Highs Are Rare Today

    Jülich, 26 July 2019 – Exactly 25 years ago today, on 26 July 1994, the temperatures and ozone levels were high. It was a Tuesday and the day when the red–green federal government in Hessen issued the first ozone alert in Germany. In the following interview, Dr. Franz Rohrer and Dr. Dieter Klemp from Jülich’s Institute of Energy and Climate Research explain why the record highs from back then of over 300 micrograms per cubic metre seldom occur today. They also show how, of all things, nitrogen oxides emitted from vehicles help to keep the ozone concentration in cities much lower today.

    HZI coordinates the development of a nasal vaccination against Chagas disease

    European Commission funds the development of a vaccine against a parasitic infection with more than eight million euros. Chagas disease, also known as American Trypanosomiasis, is a chronic parasitic disease caused by the flagellated protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi. It is a vector-borne disease, but the parasite can also be transmitted by congenital route, blood transfusions and organ transplantation or by ingesting contaminated food. It is recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a neglected tropical ...

    How resistance to important cancer drugs develops

    Taxanes, frequently used anti-cancer drugs, block cell division and thereby drive tumor cells into cell death. However, therapy resistance often develops in the course of the treatment. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center have now discovered how cancer cells degrade a protein that induces cell death in cases of failed mitosis. If this tumor brake is missing, the cancer cells survive and are resistant to the effect of taxanes.
