According to new study published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, researchers are providing new insight into how certain types of stress interact with immune cells and can regulate how these cells respond to allergens, ultimately causing physical symptoms and disease.

In a new pilot study using an animal model, North Carolina State University researchers showed that decorating cardiac stem cells with platelet nanovesicles could increase the stem cells' ability to find and remain at the site of heart attack injury and enhance their effectiveness in treatment.
In the new study published in the Journal of JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers revealed that there was no significant difference in 30-day mortality among patients treated by locum tenens physicians compared with those treated by non–locum tenens physicians. Among hospitalized Medicare beneficiaries, treatment by locum tenens physicians overall was not associated with excess mortality risk.
According to a research publication reports of the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation , Inc. (NYSCOF). Some teas contain more fluoride than EPA allows in public water supplies, which can do skeletal damage. The research was published in the Environmental Pollution
According to this study, researchers conducted observational studies between selenium status and the risk of laryngeal cancer. Selenium is an essential trace element which is a cofactor for several antioxidant enzymes, and as a result, there has been much interest in the potential health benefits of adequate selenium status. Epidemiologic evidence is still emerging with respect to the full spectrum of the health benefits associated with selenium status.
A new study suggests, Children whose mothers took folic acid or multivitamin supplements before or during pregnancy may be at lower risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
In this study, researcher’s new experimental model of a CSA in a primate was reported; only the blood supply to the brain from the donor body was re-established; the spinal cord and the continuity of other organs were not restored. This experiment was designed to confirm that deep hypothermia can protect the brain and preserve brain function after re-warming during cephalic exchange.
A new study published in the journal Cancer Cell has showed that stress accelerates the development of pancreatic cancer by triggering the release of "fight-or-flight" hormones. Beta-blockers–commonly used medications that inhibit these hormones–were found to increase survival in a mouse model of the disease. An additional analysis of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer revealed that those who were taking selective beta-blockers lived approximately two-thirds longer than those who were not taking the medications.
Researchers from Osaka University have developed new green fluorescent protein (GFP) that could withstand low pH environment for imaging of acidic organelles. The findings were published in Cell Chemical Biology.
In a research paper published in The Journal of Gerontology, the authors present a novel deep-learning based hematological human aging clock, a biomarker that predicts the biological age of individual patients. The developed model predicts the age better than models tailored to the specific populations highlighting the differences of subregion-specific patterns of aging. In addition, the developed clocks were shown to be a better predictor of all-cause mortality than chronological age.
The experimental drug J147 is something of a modern elixir of life; it's been shown to treat Alzheimer's disease and reverse aging in mice and is almost ready for clinical trials in humans. A new study, published in the journal Aging Cell, reports that the drug, J147, binds to a protein found in mitochondria, the energy-generating powerhouses of cells. In turn, the study showed, it makes aging cells, mice and flies appear more youthful.
A new study published in Biological Psychiatry has identified a key brain region of the neural circuit that controls social behavior. Increasing the activity of this region, called the habenula, led to social problems in rodents, whereas decreasing activity of the region prevented social problems. The improved understanding of altered brain function could help develop new targeted therapeutics for autism spectrum disorder.
