Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) increases the risk of subsequent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among adolescent and young adult populations by about three times, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP).
According to a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, one-month mortality rates for patients treated by first-year hospitalists were significantly higher than the rates for those treated by more experienced hospitalists.
According to a new study published in the journal of immunology, Immunity, researchers have cracked a code in T-cells, which make autoimmune diseases and organ transplant rejection a thing of the past.
A new Australian study suggested that removal of allied healthcare services from hospitals on weekends might not affect patient outcomes. The study results were reported in PLoS Medicine.
A new study from a team at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and McGill University shows that the risk does not end with mother. The father's risks also rise if the mother has one gestational condition and rises even higher if she has both. The study was published in theAmerican Journal of Epidemiology
A new study finding published in the journal Nature Microbiology has revealed that an increase in the levels of pro-oxidants caused by dietary shifts leads to a 90% reduction in Plasmodium parasite load during the hepatic phase of the infection and consequently lowers the severity of the malaria disease.
A large published study reported that there is a small but significant risk of breast cancer associated with regular use of hormonal birth control pills . The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine , Most researchers believed that the risk of these cancers had been lowered with the use of low estrogen containing pills which are the norm now.
A new and relatively simple technique for mapping the connections of the brain has shown a correlation between how well connected an individual's brain regions are and their intelligence, the study was published in the journal Neuron.
Pooled data from studies, published in JAMA Oncology, of second-line therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) indicate that compared to docetaxel, checkpoint inhibitors are associated with better survival in some patients but not others.
Researchers have shown the protein-folding replication and by using computer modeling to calculate how proteins fold. Proteins are huge molecules whose function depends on how they fold into intricate structures. To understand how these molecules work, a new algorithm can accelerate those vital simulations, enabling them to model phenomena that were previously out of reach. The results can eventually help scientists better understand and treat diseases like Alzheimer's. This study has been published in The Journal of Chemical Physics.
According to a new study, new phase 3 trials were conducted for observing the treatments for skin infection. Delafloxacin is non-inferior to vancomycin plus aztreonam for treating acute bacterial skin and skin-structure infections (ABSSSI). Delafloxacin offers the potential for the treatment of infections caused by Gram-positive pathogens including MRSA and Gram-negative pathogens, without the need for combination therapy. This study was published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy.
