Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that combines computer-generated images on a screen with a real object or scene. The authors developed a sophisticated yet simple and modifiable AR technique for use during plastic and reconstructive surgery.

A new research showed that engaging patients in addiction treatment when they were hospitalized for other conditions, could close a gap in addiction treatment. The study was published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment.
TU Dresden-Scientists from the University Cancer Center UCC at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus had developed a molecular smoke alert for the TP53 gene, the most important human cancer gene. The alert got switched on when the TP53 gene was mutated in cells. The molecular smoke detector worked like a TP53 sensor that monitored the correct function of the gene. A non-functional TP53 gene activated the sensor and initiated cell death. The study findings were published in the journal Nature Communications.
A new study published in the journal Science described the mechanism exhibited by the Rift Valley fever virus for the insertion of one of its surface proteins into the host cell membrane, thereby it proliferates and infects the cell. The better understanding of the mechanism would lead to the development of new therapeutic strategies for the infection.
According to new research, it was found that the risks of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in infants could be reduced to half if their mother breastfeeds them for at least two months. The researchers showed that mothers do not require breastfeed exclusively for their infants to get the benefit, a potential benefit was identified.
Researchers came one-step ahead to recreate a complex organ in the laboratory that is an artificial heart. An absolute lifesaver for people with cardiac failure is an artificial heart. Prior, one needs to know about how to grow multi-layered, living tissues. The spraying process fulfills the goals to create functioning muscle fibers. An artificial heart that does not trigger any rejection reactions in the body after implantation would be an elegant alternative.
A novel research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) found that cell volume could influence the future role of stem cells, regardless of environment.
A new study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Practice, suggest that chronic pain could be managed by teaching patients better approach called cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which is a beneficial alternative treatment for the millions of patients who are on opioid therapy for non-cancerous pain.
According to French researchers, Selective internal radiotherapy (SIRT) does not prolong survival compared to sorafenib in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.
The research was led by the Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine. They reported that a single infusion of wild-type hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) into a mouse model of Friedreich's ataxia (FA) restored the cellular damage caused by the degenerative disease. Transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells led to a potential therapeutic approach for the diseases that are incurable. The study findings are published online in Science Translational Medicine.
