According to a new article published by JAMA Internal Medicine, activity increased among families in a randomized clinical trial as part of a game-based intervention where they could earn points and progress through levels based on step goal achievements.

A new study has found that if the HLF (hepatic leukaemia factor) gene that is expressed in immature blood cells does not shut down on time, then it is unable to develop a functional long-term immune system and this could be a very early stage of leukaemia.
Aiming to make data repository robust, the Union Health Ministry on Monday launched the Allied and Healthcare Professional Database which will help the government to track the number of professionals and streams of allied and health care professions in the country.
According to the ministry, more than 3, 000 professionals have already registered on the portal during the testing phase.
In new research published in Nature Communications, the scientists have identified that high ADAR1 levels linked to decreased survival rates using a database of multiple myeloma patient samples and information. The team determined that blocking the enzyme reduces multiple myeloma regeneration in experimental models derived from patient cancer cells.
Developing new antiretroviral (ARV) drugs and using technology for early diagnosis are among steps needed to sustain momentum in fighting HIV/AIDS and ending the disease as a public health threat by 2030, UNAIDS said in a report.
A new study presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium showed that younger women with operable breast cancer are increasingly likely to choose bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction instead of breast-conserving surgery, regardless of their response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
Johns Hopkins researchers developed a way to successfully deliver nano-sized, platinum-based chemotherapy drugs to treat a form of bladder cancer called nonmuscle-invasive that is found in the lining of the organ and has not invaded deeper into bladder tissue. The tiny drug-infused particles, they say, potentially offer a less toxic clinical alternative to standard chemotherapy delivered intravenously or through a catheter inserted into the bladder.
The study to make substantial improvements in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease through the use of a drug originally created to treat type 2 diabetes. The study was published in the Brain Research.
Researchers declined that a potential strategy targets metabolic pathways that are active only during intestinal inflammation prevented or reduced inflammation in a mouse model of colitis while exerting no obvious effect in control animals with healthy, balanced bacterial populations. They have used precision editing of the bacterial populations in the gut to prevent or reduce the severity of inflammation in a mouse model of colitis.
Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium known as Borrellia burgdorferi and is transmitted by the bite of Ixodid tick. It is one of the most reported vector-borne diseases worldwide. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, USA) estimated that approximately 300,000 cases of Lyme disease occur each year.
Little or no certolizumab pegol (CZP) crosses into the placenta, making it safe for women who take this medication to continue it during pregnancy, according to a study from the U.S. and Europe. The findings were reported online in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
Researchers have reported that the microalgal chloroplast has clear potential as a novel industrial production platform for biopharmaceuticals. The continued development of synthetic biology tools for chloroplast engineering of C. reinhardtii will strengthen this potential by accelerating the creation of designer transgenic lines yielding high levels of the target protein.
