A new study published in the journal JAMA Oncology has suggested that chowing down on red meat, white bread and sugar-laden drinks might increase the long-term risk of colon cancer. These foods all increase inflammation in the body and the inflammation they cause is associated with a higher chance of developing colon cancer.

According to a new trial, researchers showed the clinical practice guideline which includes major sanctions for the use of blood thinning medication (anticoagulants) during heart surgery. The guideline was published in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery and in two other journals.
Researchers from Columbia University Medical Center tested a method to reduce the adverse effects of evening ambient light exposure, while still allowing the use of blue light-emitting devices. The team reasoned that selectively blocking blue light in the hours before bedtime would lead to improved sleep in individuals with insomnia.Their findings were published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research.
An international research team has conducted successful phase II clinical tests of a new anti-malaria medication. The treatment led to a cure in 83 cases. The new combination of drugs was developed by Professor Peter Kremsner of the Tübingen Institute of Tropical Medicine and the company DMG Deutschen Malaria GmbH. The study was recently published in Clinical Infectious Diseases and is freely accessible.
The researchers showed that the new optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging system can not only image both the front and the back of the eye, but can also image the interfaces of the eye's vitreous gel with the retina and lens with unprecedented detail.
Scientists have discovered that the survival of cancer stem cells is dependent on the 'Hedgehog signaling pathway'. Targeting this pathway had previously shown no effect on the growth of colorectal cancer. Now, scientists have demonstrated that using different drugs to target a specific aspect of the pathway may yield better treatment outcomes for patients.
A researcher’s study showed the consumption of regional neuraxial anesthesia in patients receiving anticoagulants carries a relatively small risk of hematoma, the serious complications of which must be acknowledged. Several therapeutic indications can simplify perioperative and postoperative management of anticoagulation.
Female kidney donors who are overweight may be at a greater risk for preeclampsia during pregnancy, according to a new study published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology. The increased risk is due to a reduction in a type of kidney function called renal functional reserve (RFR).
The goal of the present study is to determine whether selected pesticides are capable of inducing double strand breaks (DSB) in an in vitro model and the recombinational pathway ensuing this damage.
According to study, researchers from the George Washington University (GW) and US Acute Care Solutions. There are major measurement issues in patient experience data collected from U.S. emergency departments, including high variability and limited construct validity. Patient experience data is becoming increasingly important in healthcare. The study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.
According to a new research published in American Journal of Hematology, exome sequencing (ES) has the potential to molecularly diagnose causes of inherited platelet disorders (IPD) and to identify candidate genes for functional evaluation.
