A type of soil-dwelling bacterium called Streptomyces bottropensis produces a molecule that induces death in melanoma cells, according to a new study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry . The molecule's unique mode of action indicates that it could represent a promising lead for the development of new anticancer drugs.

According to a new study published in American Journal of Critical Care (AJCC), critical care nurses who practice in healthy work environments (HWEs) report less moral distress and higher job satisfaction. The results increase the call for hospitals and healthcare organizations to improve the work environment and address barriers to practice.
Welfare technology is helpful in managing the day-to-day lives of the children who require attention and care.The research project Erre mulig? (Is it possible?), coordinated by SINTEF, has been looking into the application of welfare technology for children with these diagnoses.
The lead author Dr. Daniel Velazquez-Villoria of POVISA Hospital and colleagues wrote, Subfoveal neurosensory retinal detachment may occur in association with pan-FGFR inhibitors treatment for metastatic cancer. Isolated subfoveal lesions and longer persistence of SRF (subretinal fluid) are features that may help in differentiating this entity from MEK retinopathy.
In a new study, researchers have evaluated standardised template feasibility for lung cancer MDTs, which provided clinical information and treatment recommendations to general practitioners (GPs).
In the study, when sucrose compared to octasulfate to placebo dressing in 240 patients with neuroischemic diabetic foot ulcers, wound healing was knowingly improved among patients given the active dressing. Currently there are no proven treatments for neuroischemic ulcers, defined as those arising in the presence of both peripheral neuropathy and peripheral arterial disease, with the latter condition significantly worsening prognosis. This study was published in Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.
Scientists at the National Eye Institute (NEI) report that tiny tube-like protrusions called primary cilia on cells of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). The discovery has advanced efforts to make stem cell-derived RPE for transplantation into patients with geographic atrophy, otherwise known as dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The study findings were published in the Cell Reports.
According to a new study, researchers aimed to compare the accuracy, measured as priority level, between two Swedish dispatch protocols, the three-graded priority protocol Medical Index and a newly developed prototype, the four-graded priority protocol, RETTS-A. Emergency medical dispatching should be as accurate as possible to ensure patient safety and optimize the use of ambulance resources.
A new study published in the issue of Neurology revealed that testing the level of caffeine in the blood might support the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. The study found that people with Parkinson's disease had considerably lower levels of caffeine in their blood than people without the disease, although they consumed the same amount of caffeine.
According to this study, a new research on NASA has been developed, which is helping to refine our understanding of candidate planets beyond our solar system that might support life. Yuka Fujii said, "Using a model that more realistically simulates atmospheric conditions, we discovered a new process that controls the habitability of exoplanets and will guide us in identifying candidates for further study." This new research published in the Astrophysical Journal.
Trypophobia, commonly known as "fear of holes," is linked to a physiological response associated with disgust of fear, according to a new study published in PeerJ. The study findings provide a deeper understanding of the visual system and how visual processing may contribute to a range of other phobic reactions.
The use of folic acid and multivitamin supplements by women before and during pregnancy was associated with a lower likelihood of autism spectrum disorder in children but this finding needs to be interpreted with caution because other factors could explain it. The study findings were published in the JAMA Psychiatry
