In a meta-analysis, researchers have found that long-term night shift work in women was associated with risk for nearly a dozen types of cancer. The study outcomes might help establish and implement effective measures to protect female night shifters.
New research from Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) is among the first to describe how an mRNA modification occurs in the life of neural stem cells (NSCs). The study was published in Nature Neuroscience , reveals a novel gene regulatory system that may advance stem cell therapies and gene-targeting treatments for neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and mental health disorders that affect cognitive abilities.
tRNA fragments — small sections of transfer RNA molecules — have recently been discovered to play active roles in the biology of diverse organisms. Now, these tRNA fragments (tRFs) have been found to have important functions in the mosquito Aedes aegypti, according to a new paper published in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases.
The aim of the present study is to determine the long-term efficacy and safety of prescribed water intake to prevent the progression of height-adjusted total kidney volume (ht-TKV) in patients with chronic kidney disease (stages 1-3) due to autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD)
According to new research published in the Journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, 39 adverse events reported to the US FDA were reported with infection the most common complication reported and 32 patients requiring removal of their implants. Half of malpractice cases involved allegedly inadequate informed consent.
