A study of diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is common and can lead to severe liver disease known as nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Now a study has found that empagliflozin, a newer treatment for type 2 diabetes , reduces liver fat in patients with NAFLD and diabetes.

According to a new study, the researcher describes that vulnerable persons who have not been vaccinated for measles and have been through airports in Newark, New Jersey, Detroit, and Memphis this month are being warned about the possible risk of measles by the health officials. They have announced that two air passengers from overseas were confirmed to have had measles and were traveling via these airports.
A study determines that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved tildrakizumab-asmn (Ilumya, Sun Pharmaceuticals) for adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are eligible for systemic therapy or phototherapy. Tildrakizumab-asmn is a selective interleukin (IL)-23p19 inhibitor. The study was published in The Lancet.
In this study, the researcher has produced a vast library of unique cyclic compounds, some with the capacity to interrupt specific protein-protein interactions that play a role in disease. The new compounds have cyclic structures that give them stability and enhance their ability to bind to their targets. The study was published in the journal Nature Chemical Biology.
A study with their research team has considered a Staphylococcus aureus gene involved in virulence, biofilm formation and resistance to certain antibiotics. These results open new avenues for understanding the control of S. aureus virulence mechanisms. This study was published in the journal PLoS Pathogens.
A study examines the incidence, rationales, related factors and outcomes for changing from appropriate catheter placement to inappropriate use among hospitalized older patients in the emergency department. Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is one of the most common healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), accounts for 34% of all HAIs and is associated with significant morbidity and excess health care costs.
A new study reveals an increased rate of accidental injuries are associated with self-reported, poorer hearing adults, with leisure-related injuries being most notable among those respondents. Those with "good" or "a little trouble" hearing were at a higher risk of work-related injuries. While many factors can contribute to accidental injuries, the relationship between them and certain sensory impairments, such as hearing loss. The study was published today in JAMA Otolaryngology.
Researcher invented the native-state microscope that can scan large areas using fiber optics. It could allow for immediate, real-time microscopic confirmation of the complete removal of malignant tissues during surgery. In the not-so-distant future, surgeons could ensure the complete removal of malignant tumors, and pathologists could analyze tissue more efficiently, by using a device.
According to a new research, a linking dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors used to treat type 2 diabetes to an increased risk for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is prompting investigators to urge monitoring of patients for gastrointestinal symptoms and to suggest substituting the drug with a different antidiabetic in patients at risk for the autoimmune condition.
At present study, researchers find lead concentration in Flint children's blood was nearly three times higher than the levels children had almost a decade before the year of the Flint water crisis
Children as young as four years old with symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) showed reduced brain volumes in regions essential for behavioral control, according to a new study.
According to the findings, the researchers identified an antibody which clears the sticky plaques formed in the brain and also Alzheimer's protein APOE nestled within the plaques to prevent or treat the Alzheimer's disease
