Press releases

  • Potato peel nets can provide more eelgrass

    [30 Jul 2020] By fundamentally strengthening the seabed with a net made on potato peelings, the conditions for eelgrass to take root can increase significantly. It shows experiments made by an international group of researchers, including from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The method can be used to restore coastal vegetation and protect the coast from erosion since eelgrass can reduce the wave action reaching the beach.

  • Medicine against prostate cancer in new COVID-19 study

    [15 Jul 2020] In a new trial, Swedish researchers will investigate if a medicine normally used to treat prostate cancer can also be used to treat COVID-19 in patients. The desired effect is that the medicine will shorten the course of the disease and the need for intensive care. The drug itself is known to not least affect an enzyme important in prostate cancer cases and in corona infections.

  • Spread of flu virus in hospital environment common

    [15 Jul 2020] One in four inpatients with influenza in a given season showed signs of having become infected during care. This is clear from a University of Gothenburg thesis about the spread of influenza in hospitals and how this problem can be remedied.
