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.
According to a study led by Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists, the process can also make those cells divide too quickly, posing a cancer risk. This can restore hearing by injecting stem cells into the inner ear and stem cells can be converted to auditory neurons that could reverse deafness. This study published in Stem Cell Reports.
Biologists at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a method for rapidly screening hundreds of thousands of potential drugs for fighting infections , an innovation that holds promise for combating the growing scourge of antibiotic-resistant bacteria . The method involves engineering bacteria to produce and test molecules that are potentially toxic to themselves. The study was published in the journal Cell
In this study, researchers will isolate various compounds from the venom of marine organisms to evaluate their analgesic and anesthetic qualities. This study shows that a multi-disciplinary team of researchers with expertise in biology, anaesthesiology, pharmacology, and medicinal chemistry at U of U Health received a grant from the Department of Defense to identify new, natural compounds to develop non-opioid drugs for pain management.
According this study, authors said that age of the patient and relative lifespan could be taken into consideration when discussing treatment for slow-growing facial nonmelanoma skin cancer. Non-melanoma skin cancer refers to squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma. This study is published in JAMA Surgery.
In the new study, researchers instead started with human induced pluripotent stem cells. These are cells taken from adult non-muscle tissues, such as skin or blood, and reprogrammed to revert to a primordial state. They grew the first functioning human muscle tissue from cells obtained from muscle biopsies. This is published in Nature Communications.
According to a new study, research revealed Neighborhood-level socioeconomic factors in low-income areas may significantly predict heart failure risk beyond individual health factors and socioeconomic status. This is published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.
The objective of this study was to investigate dialysis staff ( n = 509), primarily social workers and nurse managers, perceptions of renal transplant disparities in the Southeastern United States.
According to the Emergency Care Research Institute, researchers declined geriatric adults (65 and older) account for up to 25 percent of all ED visits, but their needs may not be met in a general ED. This study has been published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
Recent incidents of expensive healthcare and medical negligence have brought the focus back on poor healthcare facilities in the country. The writer takes a look at the policy challenges and how the situation can be changed.
