Researchers from the University of Sheffield have shown that a new blood test could provide a clue as to why some patients are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease risk after suffering a heart attack. The study findings published in the European Heart Journal.
The structural findings reveal the fine specificities associated with two distinct immunogenic sites on Pfs25. Importantly, one of these sites broadly overlaps with the epitope of the well-known 4B7 mouse antibody, which can be targeted simultaneously by antibodies that target a non-overlapping site to additively increase parasite inhibition. The findings were reported in the Nature Communications.
Researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus working with the University of Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and University of California San Francisco Memory and Aging Center, have found an association between inflammation biomarkers in both blood plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and markers of Alzheimer's disease associated pathology.
A collaborative study has revealed that a new scanning technology could reduce the number of liver biopsies carried out on people with fatty liver disease. The study, published in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, shows that using the non-invasive technology as a first-line test that could stop patients having unnecessary biopsies.
For adults with cancer-related pain, oxycodone can be used first line as an alternative to morphine, a new systematic review, published in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, suggests.
According to new research reported in The Lancet Haematology, the outcomes of the phase 3 trial show a significant improvement of progression-free survival with rituximab maintenance in selected elderly patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia in first remission after an abbreviated FCR induction.
The human genome contains thousands of genes, but to get the information from a gene requires it to be copied. A team of researchers, led by Dr Steven West from the University of Exeter's Living Systems Institute, has taken a crucial step towards understanding how the transcription process stops — or is terminated. The study was published in Genes & Development
Researchers conducted a comparative analysis to identify genes that are expressed differentially in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The GMPR gene, which encodes human guanosine monophosphate reductase 1 (GMPR1), was found to gradually increase its expression with AD progression.
In this study, scientists examined the consequences of microgravity experienced during spaceflight and of important parallels and connections to the physiology of aging. Microgravity during spaceflight influences cardiovascular function, cerebral autoregulation, musculoskeletal, and sensorimotor system performance.
New study findings published in the Journal of Nurse Practitioners have suggested that nurse practitioners (NPs) should implement practical advice and tips for utilizing telehealth, as well as risk management strategies to ensure better patient care and avoid malpractice litigation or licensing issues.
Hip fracture is a worldwide public health problem that primarily affects osteoporotic individuals and the elderly. A second hip fracture can occur in elderly patients who have already suffered an initial hip fracture. The aim of this study was to investigate possible risk factors for second hip fractures in elderly patients with hip fractures.
