Lunar Dust Has Great Influence On The Health Of Astronauts

A comparative study between the lunar soil simulant (LSS) and PM2.5 was performed to discover their harm to human biological systems and explore the methods of prevention and treatment of dust poisoning for future lunar manned landings. The steps to the moon never stopped after the Apollo Project. Lessons from manned landings on the moon have shown that lunar dust has great influence on the health of astronauts.

New Insights Of The Smallest Brain Circuits

According to a study, researchers analyzed the electrical activity of hundreds of neurons as they fire inside the brain of a mouse model for up to half an hour at a time. Neurons are highly active spontaneously, so 30 minutes is a very long time. They focused on the interactions between neurons at multiple time-scales from milliseconds to minutes.

Chronic Otitis Media With And Without Cholesteatoma

Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) with and without cholesteatoma is regarded as chronic inflammation of the middle ear and mastoid mucosa that can be associated with the presence of granulation tissue and infection, which can lead to ossicular damage and hearing loss, but it is commonly known that cholesteatoma behaves aggressively.

To Create Protein Outside A Cell For Therapeutics Purpose

According to a new study, scientists have established a new method to produce proteins outside of a cell that could have important implications in therapeutics and biomaterials. The advance could make possible decentralized manufacturing and distribution processes for protein therapeutics that might, in the future, promote better access to costly drugs all over the world. The study was published online in Nature Communications.

Microbes Can Escape From A Dead End By Swimming

A new study examines that microorganisms are too tiny to be seen by the naked eye, they are distributed all over the world and even inside the human body. It has been mostly unknown that microorganisms can survive in difficult environments, such as in the ground and inside of the body, despite the importance of such information.

Opioid Pain Relievers Are At Increased Risk Of Complications After Surgery

A study determines that patients who have been taking opioid pain relievers for several months before spinal fusion surgery is at increased risk of complications after their surgery. The study was published in the journal Spine. According to new research, Patients on chronic opioid therapy before spinal fusion are at increased risk of complications and adverse outcomes including repeated spinal surgery.
