Researchers have developed a new way to magnetic molecules in the human body, paving the way to a new generation of low-cost magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ) technology that would transform our ability to diagnose and treat diseases including cancer, diabetes, and dementia. The study was published in the Science Advances.

Extended-pulsed fidaxomicin, delivering 20 doses over a longer time period after initial daily dosing, appears superior to standard-dose vancomycin for sustained cure of Clostridium difficile infection in patients age 60 or older, according to a study published in the journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases.
Implanted devices send targeted electrical stimulation to the nervous system to interfere with abnormal brain activity, and it is commonly assumed that neurons are the only important brain cells that need to be stimulated by these devices. However, research published in Nature Biomedical Engineering reveals that it may also be important to target the supportive glial cells surrounding the neurons.
Although exercise counseling has increased, two in five adults with arthritis still do not receive it, according to results from a study published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
A new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, has shown that a virus injected directly into the bloodstream can reach tumors deep inside the brain and switch on the body's own defense system to attack them.
In a study published in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, researchers from NSW and the University of South Australia reveal that errors involving opioids are almost three times higher than previously reported in other healthcare settings.
According to a recent study, breast cancer is a growing epidemic in India. It could kill 76,000 women a year by 2020. It claimed more than 70,000 lives in 2012. At the heart of the issue is the country's rapid economic development, which has made Indian women more susceptible to the disease, without building the infrastructure to prevent and detect it. But the good news is that boosting breast cancer awareness and encouraging early detection could play a significant role in reducing it.
scientists at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), outline the development and benefits of this innovative diagnostic tool and explain how maximizing PET sensitivity will advance clinical research and patient care. The study was published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine
Researchers published a new report in the journal PLOS Biology stating that historical documents prove that the sugar industry has had a hand in hiding the true results that sugars are actually more dangerous for the heart damage than fats, from the general public.
Rabies is a viral disease that kills tens of thousands of people every year, predominantly in Africa and Asia. The disease is transmitted through the bites of infected dogs and foxes. In West- and Central Europe, rabies was eliminated some 20 years ago. Switzerland was declared free of rabies in 1999 after implementing a strategy targeting foxes.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between serum leptin and arterial stiffness in Hemodialysis (HD) patients. Leptin contributes to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and leads to arterial stiffness.
According to research by a University of British Columbia scientist, a medication used to treat joint and skin conditions might also help people whose only hope of surviving cancer is receiving stem cells from a donor.
