The study got published in Science Advances.
A first-of-its-kind study has found that the genetic diversity of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is higher in the vaginal tract than in the bloodstream during early infection. This finding, published in PLOS Pathogens, supports the existence of a genetic bottleneck between the vaginal tract and the bloodstream.
A study led by researchers at RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland) has identified a new genetic test that can be used to predict if a patient with epilepsy will develop an adverse reaction to a common anti-epileptic drug. The finding will help inform doctors to prescribe the safest and most beneficial treatment for patients with epilepsy. The study is published in the journal Neurology.
According to a new study, researchers observed during the development of an embryo, every single cell needs to know who it is, where it is, and what it must do. They have identified a gene that oversees the shape of the cell. To make a fully-grown organism in the right shape, the forms of many cells need to be changed in a coordinated way.
A new study research on the risk of dying from scheduled surgery in Africa is more than double the global average. According to a study shedding light on one of the continent's biggest but poorly investigated healthcare problems. The study published in The Lancet.
A new study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry reported that omega-3s from fish are more effective than flaxseed and other oils when it comes to cancer prevention. Researchers have discovered that marine-based omega-3s are eight times more effective at inhibiting tumour development and growth.
In this study, the objective is to investigate the outcome of percutaneous fixation of displaced calcaneal fractures with cannulated cancellous screws .
A study examines from a research of the same solemn day, NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center in California officials remember three pilots in its history who died at the stick of a NASA or National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) aircraft.
The repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)'s individual mandate that is included in the tax reform legislation will cause tens of millions of Americans to lose health insurance coverage, according to the American College of Physicians (ACP).

Americans want improvements to their health insurance system; they want more people to be covered at more affordable prices. However, the legislation passed by Congress will do exactly the opposite.
A study conducted experiment with researchers from the Vanderbilt University have discovered how insulin crosses the capillary endothelium to exit blood vessels and stimulate skeletal muscle cells. Major finding that may lead to new ways to reverse insulin resistance, a hallmark of type 2 diabetes. The study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
