A Houston Methodist orthopedic surgeon created small antibiotic beads that are implanted with the new joint to slowly release medicine for several weeks,to reduce this infection risk. More than 1 million people undergo total joint replacements each year, and nearly 10,000 will develop infections.

Ursula Schmidt-Erfurth, Head of MedUni Vienna's Department of Ophthalmology and Optometry said, "It is all about the right treatment for the right patient at the right time." And looking into the eye – using digital techniques and analyzing Big Data also provides an accurate picture of a person's general medical condition , facilitates early diagnosis and treatment and makes for transparent patients.
One hurdle specific to treating solid tumors is a protective layer called an extracellular matrix that can prevent chemotherapeutic agents from penetrating the tumor's core. Scientists now report Chemistry of Materials showing that, by cloaking anti-cancer drugs in a specially designed particle, they could target and destroy tumor cells deep inside a malignant mass in vitro.
According to this study, researchers revealed the death toll from an outbreak in South Africa has jumped beyond 60 in the past month, which causes the disease had been detected. Since monitoring of the outbreak began last January, 720 laboratory-confirmed cases of food poisoning due to the disease, also known as listeriosis, have been reported from the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD).
Researchers reported at the American Conference on Physician Health that physicians and other healthcare workers who use a simple tool for 2 weeks show reduced burnout within a few days of starting the intervention and retain most of the benefit a year later. The intervention, called Three Good Things, revolves around strengthening a person's ability to perceive and savor positive emotions.
Researchers investigated intervention to promote prolonged and exclusive breastfeeding protects against asthma, atopic eczema, and low lung function in adolescence . Promotion of prolonged and exclusive breastfeeding may reduce the risk of atopic eczema risk in adolescence.
A new study from Karolinska Institutet, published in the scientific journal Brain, suggests that particular proteins important in the communication between neurons could be targets for early interventions in patients with different types of dementias.
An investigation of the embryonic development of sea anemones, a very old animal lineage, researchers have now come to conclusions which challenge the 150-year-old hypothesis of the homology (common evolutionary origin) of the germ layers that form all later organs and tissues According to a 150-year-old hypothesis, all tissues and organs in our body derive from one of three germ layers that are established during early embryogenesis.
The researchers have examined the genes of 5,000 Greenlanders , corresponding to around 9% of the entire population in Greenland. In 4.4% of the test subjects this specific gene was inactive. The study findings were published in the journal Nature Genetics
The study says that researchers have declared that attempts to standardize reporting and cytological criteria for ?ne-needle aspiration of thyroid nodules and was first introduced in 2009, has been updated from The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC). Although much of the original TBSRTC remains the same, several "enhancements" have been introduced in the 2017 version based on new data and developments in the field. This was published in thyroid.
According to a new study, researchers from Brown University have identified an enzyme that appears the regulate the physiology of both fat types in mice, decreasing inflammation in white fat tissue, while promoting the ability of brown fat to burn calories. New study in mice and humans suggests that an enzyme called SNRK suppresses inflammation in obesity-related 'white fat' while increasing metabolism in heat-producing 'brown fat,' making SNRK an intriguing target in the battle against obesity.
