A study examining thousands of patients treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for COVID-19 found the treatment slightly increased a person's risk of death from the virus

A major international study, published in the journal The Lancet, has concluded hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine treatment for COVID-19 is not safe or effective. The large-scale observational analysis encompassed nearly 100,000 subjects, finding the drug treatment potentially increases risk of mortality and cardiovascular events. In light of the study the World Health Organization has paused its trialing of the drug for COVID-19 treatment.

The prefabricated LumiPod was transported to the site in parts and took two days to install

Originally unveiled by French firm Lumicene last year, the first LumiPod models have now been completed. The tiny retreat, which is definitely best suited for glamping or as a weekender rather than a full-time home, is fronted by operable curved glazing that frames the view and ensures lots of daylight enters inside.

Great white sharks may get big when they grow up, but the babies are still relatively small and in need of protection from predators

Although the great white shark is one of the ocean's top predators, it's still considered a vulnerable species. Now, for the first time, scientists have discovered what is claimed to be a prehistoric nursery site for the sharks – and it could have implications for protecting them today.

The Santa Maria volcano in Guatemala

Active volcanic craters are something that people generally don't want to get very close to – even if they're dedicated volcanologists. With that in mind, German scientists recently had success using a drone to do the job.

Through the discovery of plastic fragments in the feces and regurgitated food of dippers, scientists have found what they say is the first evidence of river microplastics traveling up the food chain

According to the UN Environment Programme, we’ve produced more than eight billion metric tonnes of plastic since the early 1950s, with around 60 percent of that not recycled. It is very difficult for researchers to track the path of this waste when not it is improperly disposed of, but their efforts continue to turn up evidence of its detrimental effects on the natural world. The latest example comes from scientists in the UK, who have now discovered the first evidence of river-borne plastic waste traveling up the food chain.

A new urine test called SLIPS-LAB could make the process of kidney stone detection far more efficient

Scientists at Pennsylvania State University and Stanford University are reporting a breakthrough that could greatly improve on methods to detect kidney stones, demonstrating a novel type of urine test that can return results in just 30 minutes. This not only promises a much shorter turnaround time than the seven to 10 days required of today’s tests, but could also make the process far cheaper and more widely accessible, therefore opening up effective new ways to detect and manage the condition.
