A new study published in the recent issue of the journal Nature Communications reveals that a molecular mechanism in kidney cells makes cancer cells resistant to drug therapy.
According to the studies, people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were identified with the help of magnetic imagining resonance (MRI). The MRI shows the difference in the brain information among ADHD patients and distinguishes among subtypes of the condition. The study was published in the journal Radiology.
The three-year MAJESTIC trial outcomes, presented at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe , revealed that people whose femoropopliteal arteries treated with Boston Scientific's Eluvia paclitaxel-eluting vascular stent system experienced long-term treatment.
According to a recent study published online in Archives of Disease in Childhood, appendectomy is considered as the best choice for uncomplicated appendicitis in children, rather than conventional treatment with the antibiotic.
A new study by the researchers from Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Health was presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). A higher-dose, shorter form of hypo-fractionated radiation is safe, effective, and no more damaging to the breast tissue or skin of breast cancer patients.
Researchers from the UNC School of Medicine and North Carolina State University (NCSU) have developed a treatment for several lung conditions using stem cell therapy. The promising therapy has the potential to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis, which affect millions. This has been published in the journal Respiratory Research.
A new study published in the PLOS ONE exposed the influence of sleep on eyewitness’s ability to pick a convict out of police lineup. It states that eyewitnesses to a crime who sleep before being given a lineup are much less likely to choose an innocent person out of a lineup.
A new study published in the Applied and Environmental Microbiology, reported that use of antibiotics on humans and animals, and use of biocidal cleaning products such as bleach was linked to multidrug resistance in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the home. The contamination of the home environment might contribute to reinfection of both humans and animals with MRSA, and to subsequent failure of treatment.
Brain cells communicate with one another with the help of a neurotransmitter called serotonin, which is playing essential roles in stabilizing mood and regulating stress.Previous attempts failed to achieve agreement in identifying the whole theory of brain serotonin function. The existing view should update to incorporate a 'two-pronged' model of how serotonin acts, researchers argue.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease in which lungs are infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and affects around 2-3 billion world’s population, 10% of whom progress to clinical disease. In 2015 there were an estimated 10.4 million new cases of TB and 1.8 million deaths globally.
A new study was published in Arthritis Care & Research regarding the link between rheumatoid arthritis and increased risk of developing COPD. The article suggests that greater vigilance is required to monitor the increased risk of COPD in those with chronic inflammatory conditions.
