Cognitive Therapy Is Effective In Reducing Severe Tinnitus

Authors examined the mindfulness-based cognitive therapy could offer an real new therapy for tinnitus. This single-site randomized controlled trial compared mindfulness-based cognitive treatment to intensive relaxation training (RT) for chronic, distressing tinnitus in adults. Tinnitus is experienced by up to 15% of the population and can lead to significant disability and distress. There is rarely a medical or surgical target and psychological therapies are recommended. This has published in the current issue of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.

Stroke Has Been Increased by Following Cardiac Procedures

According to this study, Stroke is a known problem of cardiac surgery, but there are few data related to stroke risk in the middle risk period from discharge up to one year of follow-up.  Apart from left atrial appendage (LAA) closure and ablation, ischemic stroke readmission rates following cardiac procedures were consistently higher than the highest-risk noncardiac surgery. This study has published in Journal of the American Heart Association.

Better Clinical Outcome For Aged; After Immunotherapy For Metastatic Melanoma

According to a small retrospective study from France has shown that the patients after immunotherapy treatment for metastatic melanoma. People over age of 65 will show equivalent, and perhaps better, clinical outcome than their younger counterparts. They examined whether the age of patients with metastatic melanoma affected response and tolerance to immunotherapy in a real-world clinical setting. This study has been published in JAMA Dermatology.

Spectroscopy Has Been Developed from The Silver Nanoparticles

Researchers team from the University of Hyderabad in India has enhanced molecular detection at low concentration levels by arranging nanoparticles on nanowires to develop Raman spectroscopy. Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) uses electromagnetic fields to improve Raman scattering and boost sensitivity in standard dyes such as R6G by more than one billionfold. As medicine and pharmacology investigate nanoscale processes, it has become increasingly important to identify and characterize different molecules

High Risk Of Diabetes Determined In Blacks

The study found that both blacks and whites face the similar risk of evolving diabetes when all biological factors for the disease are considered over time. The finding flips long-held beliefs that there is an unexplained or genetic reason why blacks have double the rate of diabetes linked to whites by midlife, which is considered early onset. This study was published in the journal JAMA.
