Platypus milk may save us from bacterial infections
Platypus milk is capable of killing bacteria and other microbes thanks to an antibacterial protein. This protein has a highly unusual structure not seen elsewhere in nature (that we know of). The Australian researchers who found the protein hypothesized that, due to its unique structure, the protein might also function differently from our current antibiotics, and that this difference in functionality might mean it can kill bacteria that other drugs can't.www.popsci.com/platypus-milk-bacterial-infections/

A blood test for breast cancer 5 years before signs
A blood test could detect breast cancer up to five years before any clinical signs of the disease, according to researchers. Cancer cells produce proteins called antigens that trigger the body to make antibodies against them: autoantibodies. Researchers at the University of Nottingham say they are developing a test that identifies the body's immune response to tumour-associated antigens (TAAs), as they are a good indicator of cancer. https://news.sky.com/story/blood-test-could-detect-breast-cancer-five-years-before-clinical-signs-11852901
