Magnetic Interference on #Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices From Apple #iPhone MagSafe Technology

Magnet wireless charging is being utilized increasingly in current generation smartphones. Apple's MagSafe is a proprietary wireless charging technology with an array of magnets that has the capacity to generate magnet fieldstrength >50 gauss (G). We hypothesize that there is clinically significant magnet interference caused by Apple's MagSafe technology on cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED). …

Human #immune system adaptations to simulated #microgravity revealed by single-cell mass cytometry

Exposure to microgravity (Β΅G) during space flights produces a state of immunosuppression, leading to increased viral shedding, which could interfere with long term missions. However, the cellular mechanisms that underlie the immunosuppressive effects of Β΅G are ill-defined. A deep understanding of human immune adaptations to Β΅G is a necessary first step to design data-driven interventions …
