The European Society for Pediatric Nephrology (ESPN) Working Group on Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and Urinary Tract hypothesized that the current diagnostic approach with regard to renal dysplasia was not homogeneous. Researchers also mindful of the observation that the appearance of kidneys on ultrasound (US) scanning is often currently used as a basis for the diagnosis of RD.

A new study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine provides evidence to support the hypothesis that lactation may lower risk of diabetes in women. The study findings open new avenues into mechanisms leading to glucose intolerance, researchers reports.
A new smartphone app called Wound Care is successfully enabling patients to remotely send images of their surgical wounds for monitoring by nurses.
The app was developed by researchers from the Wisconsin Institute of Surgical Outcomes Research (WiSOR) with the goal of earlier detection of surgical site infections (SSIs) and prevention of hospital readmissions. The study results appear as an "article in press" on the website of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons.
In the current study, there has been an emerging clinical data suggesting that intravenous propacetamol may cause iatrogenic hypotension. A primary objective of this study was to evaluate hemodynamic changes after propacetamol infusion in the emergency department (ED) with the patients of influenza A. Even to study the effect of intravenous propacetamol in the emergency department (ED) patients.
Researchers from the Universities of Geneva (UNIGE) and Lausanne (UNIL) have found that children born with Down's syndrome have an excellent genome – better, in fact, than the average genome of people without the genetic abnormality. The study was published in the journal Genome Research
In comparison with just screening women who are at high risk of carrying breast and ovarian cancer gene mutations, screening the entire population for these mutations will be more cost-effective, according to a new study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
A Chinese research team has developed a gold-nanoparticle-based multifunctional vehicle to transport the "gene scissors" to the tumor cell genome. As the authors report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, their nonviral transport and release platform of gene-editing systems has the additional advantage of combining hyperthermal cancer therapy with genetic modification.
In the current study, researchers declined a new evidence and guidance recommend against the practice of routine pre-operative laboratory tests. Despite these recommendations, the tradition of routine preoperative testing is still prevalent due many reasons. Guidance were provided on the use of pre-operative laboratory tests before elective surgeries for last one and half decades.
A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society has indicated that adults aged 65 years and older who are hospitalized with fever or respiratory symptoms during influenza seasons are less likely to have a provider-ordered influenza test than younger patients.
Anew study from China suggests, a decline in kidney function may be an independent risk factor for lower lumbar spine bone mineral density ( LBMD ) as healthy Chinese postmenopausal women age. The study was punctuated in the journal Menopause , both the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and LBMD progressively declined with age.
