A new study, published in the Journal of Biomechanics , examines what may cause chronic back pain in runners and the exercises to help prevent it. The study findings suggest that they runners with weak deep core muscles are at higher risk of developing low back pain. And, unfortunately, most people's deep core muscles are not nearly as strong as they should be.

In a study published today in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, based on patients' awareness of their memory problems, researchers have identified a useful method to predict who won't develop Alzheimer's disease. People who were not aware of their memory loss, a condition called anosognosia, were more likely to progress to Alzheimer's disease and those who were aware of memory problems were unlikely to develop dementia.
The microfluidic device, which can be used in clinics, is dubbed SPARTAN, short for Simple Periodic ARray for Trapping And IsolatioN. It uses a field of three-dimensional posts that create an obstacle course for the swimming sperm cells. The strongest and healthiest sperm get through this array the fastest and then are collected at the outlet to be used in the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process.
Studies in mice and in tissue cultures suggest that giving vitamin C with tuberculosis drugs could reduce the unusually long time it takes these drugs to eradicate this pathogen. The research is published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology.
Paul Brown from the University of Calgary led a study to find out just how much exercise is needed during hemodialysis, a treatment that uses a machine to filter the body's blood and remove toxins when the kidneys are not functioning. The study findings were published in the Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism
A new study published in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship examines how the brain is activated when the Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is used to help cancer patients process traumatic memories. The research also adds to the basic understanding of the pathophysiology of traumatic stress in general and the underlying mechanisms involved in resolving it.
According a new study, researchers from Drexel University, they observed that a 19 species of wasps found that body size may lead to variation in the complex parts of their brains. In comparison, the brain size to body size shows that just because you've evolved to have a big brain. This study has published in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.
Authors examined the mindfulness-based cognitive therapy could offer an real new therapy for tinnitus. This single-site randomized controlled trial compared mindfulness-based cognitive treatment to intensive relaxation training (RT) for chronic, distressing tinnitus in adults. Tinnitus is experienced by up to 15% of the population and can lead to significant disability and distress. There is rarely a medical or surgical target and psychological therapies are recommended. This has published in the current issue of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.
According to this study, Stroke is a known problem of cardiac surgery, but there are few data related to stroke risk in the middle risk period from discharge up to one year of follow-up. Apart from left atrial appendage (LAA) closure and ablation, ischemic stroke readmission rates following cardiac procedures were consistently higher than the highest-risk noncardiac surgery. This study has published in Journal of the American Heart Association.
According to a small retrospective study from France has shown that the patients after immunotherapy treatment for metastatic melanoma. People over age of 65 will show equivalent, and perhaps better, clinical outcome than their younger counterparts. They examined whether the age of patients with metastatic melanoma affected response and tolerance to immunotherapy in a real-world clinical setting. This study has been published in JAMA Dermatology.
