Researchers developed a synthetic compound called SUW133 in lab animals that wake up latent virus cells and initiated the virus to replicate so that either the immune system or the virus itself would kill the cell harbouring HIV. The study outcomes were published in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS Pathogens.

In collaboration with researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Biochemists at Goethe University Frankfurt and the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics have uncovered the inner workings of a complex molecular machine in cells. The MHC-1 complex pre-selects and transmits information to the immune system in order to fight viruses, bacteria, parasites, and cancers.
According to a study published in recent issue of the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, a novel approach improves diagnosis time with enhanced accuracy for Salmonella infections. In case of animals, fast clinical diagnoses allow veterinarians to quickly quarantine an infected animal.
The study suggests that the parabens in cosmetics and soaps lower testosterone levels and more sperm that are abnormally shaped and slow moving. Further, this may contribute to causing infertility in men.
New research reported that continuous subcutaneous parecoxib could reduce cancer pain in hospice patients. After parecoxib administration, pain scores and the number of required rescue opioid doses were considerably decreased. It could also replace oral NSAIDs when required.
According to the study headed by the researchers at the University of Sheffield, a simple arthritis medication can treat blood cancer patients.
Critically ill postoperative patients far better when sedation is interrupted as soon as possible after admission to the ICU, compared with usual sedation care, according to results from the SOS-Ventilation trial.
A new study led by Chris Kenedi, internist and psychiatrist at Auckland Hospital to improve the safety of air travel by focused on the mental health of pilots. The study was carried in collaboration with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
A study published in the recent issue of the journal Blood has exposed the more potent drug, ventoclax, to treat T-prolymphocytic leukaemia (T-PLL).
Naomi Marmorstein, a researcher in the study, wrote insomnia to be a risk marker for alcohol use, and alcohol use a risk marker for insomnia, among early adolescents. Parents, educators, and therapists should consider this, published in the journal Addictive Behaviors.
A new study featured in the journal Radiology revealed that the type treatment approach used to cure shoulder calcifications should be based on the type of calcification and the outcomes could assist interventional radiologists to decide whether to use one or two needles for an ultrasound-guided treatment for rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy.
Researchers from University of Nebraska Medical Center and the National Data Bank for Rheumatic Diseases researched to show the associations of various medications used by RA patients with osteoporotic (OP) fracture risk. Antidepressants like opioids and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors were associated with increased risk of osteoporotic fractures for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. The research outcomes were published in the 2017 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in San Diego.
