The research report provides comprehensive information on the therapeutics and analysis under development for Polycythemia Vera, by stage of development, drug target, mechanism of action (MoA), route of administration (RoA) and molecule type.
A new bioinformatics analysis method developed at the Department of Virology of Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Germany has provided us with new information regarding viral infections. The method, published in the Nature Methods, used to demonstrate that virus-infected cells produce far more infection-related proteins and peptides than previously thought.
A new study, presented at ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, has shown that patients with hematologic malignancies received more aggressive care at the end of life than patients with solid tumors.
In addition, racial minorities with hematologic malignancies had lower rates of advance directive documentation and received significantly more aggressive care at the end of life than white individuals with blood cancers.
An updated Clinical Practice Guideline by Endocrine Society experts, reveals that new scientific evidence has strengthened the case for reserving testosterone therapy for well-documented cases of hypogonadism, a condition where the body does not produce enough testosterone. The guideline was published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM).
A new study, published in the journal Nature Communications, revealed that even when our bodies show no signs of life, genes can continue to be active. This can provide important data for other studies, but the researchers hope that it can become useful as a forensic tool, as well.
A new study, presented at the American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting in San Diego, suggests that simultaneous use of the educational program and electronic medical record ordering tool in primary care improve the treatment for acne.
Fecal profiling of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) might provide a low-cost tool to predict the responses of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients to diet low in fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols (FODMAPs).
The atypical antipsychotic brexpiprazole has been considered safe and effective for treating agitation in patients with dementia related to Alzheimer's disease (AD), at its highest dose, new research suggests.
Doctors performing general practitioner surgery who also have training in complementary and alternative medicines appear to be less likely to prescribe antibiotics to patients and may hold the key to reducing over-prescribing of these drugs.
The neutrophil assay could potentially be used to accurately diagnose and monitor sepsis in larger populations of at-risk patients. A machine-learning-based scoring system was developed which segregated patients with sepsis from those without sepsis.
The early cardiac infiltration of monocyte-derived macrophages contributes to the development of pathological hypertrophy and fibrosis, required for the expansion of cardiac and lymphoid CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and the transition to heart failure.
