Various studies have shown that when pregnant women come into contact with bisphenol, it can go pass through the placenta and reach the fetus. Exposure to bisphenol can have negative effects on fertility, the development of the brain, and behavioral changes in adulthood. So far, however, no method has been available for quantifying the amount of the compound that can reach the fetus through the mother.

According to the 17-year experience of one poison center department, high-dose insulin is a feasible, effective treatment for beta-blocker and calcium-channel blocker poisoning,
In this study, researchers examined the effects of space radiation on the central nervous system (CNS), ground-based studies in animals have been conducted for more than two decades using charged particle accelerators. Space radiation represents a significant health risk for astronauts. Ground-based animal studies indicate that space radiation affects neuronal functions such as excitability, synaptic transmission, and plasticity, and it may accelerate the onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
FDA warned that co-administration of a triptan and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRIs) has an additive effect on serotonin levels that can lead to serotonin syndrome
Research studies have recommended that CIN2 lesions often return to their former state without treatment and instead it should be regularly monitored, particularly in younger women, as the procedure would be harmful to pregnancies in future
In patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and inadequate treatment response to methotrexate, the etanercept biosimilar, LBEC0101, demonstrated equivalent clinical efficacy and comparable safety profile to etanercept, according to a study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
A new study, published in the journal CANCER, reveals that women with breast cancer who undergo radiation therapy may have fears about the treatment, but their actual experiences with modern breast radiation therapy are better than they anticipated. In the study, most patients agreed that their initial negative impressions were unfounded.
Scientists at the University of Arkansas adapted terahertz pulsed imaging, a type of electromagnetic radiation technology previously used to find land mines, to detect tumors and provide highly specific images of them.
Johns Hopkins researchers have invented a new class of immunotherapeutics that are more effective at harnessing the power of the immune system to fight cancer. This new approach, reported in Nature Communications, results in significant inhibition of tumor growth, even against cancers that do not respond to existing immunotherapies.
Researchers at the Helmholtz Zentrum München, in collaboration with the German Center for Lung Research (DZL), have discovered a novel mechanism that causes pleural effusion in patients with lung cancer. The study findings were published in Nature Communications.
Gene therapy has shown promise for treating a neurodegenerative disease known as frontotemporal dementia and a related condition called neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, according to a study by scientists at the University of Alabama at Birmingham published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
