A study examines a dozen cases of in-flight transmission of serious infections have been documented, and air travel can serve as a conduit for the rapid spread of newly emerging infections and pandemics. With over 3 billion airline passengers annually, the in-flight transmission of infectious diseases is an important global health concern.
Researchers evaluated that Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons make up as much as 4% of the population but are barely mentioned in the basic dermatology curriculum. The study was published in JAMA Dermatology.
Researchers established the discovery of a new class of antibiotics that may be effective in treating drug-resistant infections. A newly discovered antibiotic binds to the ribosome for disrupting protein synthesis. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Nosopharm, a biotechnology company based in Lyon, France, are part of an international team reporting on the discovery of a new class of antibiotics. The study was published in Molecular Cell.
Researchers 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.
India’s economy is soaring and is now the world’s envy, but its healthcare system remains an Achilles’ heel. For millions of people, the high cost of treating illnesses continues to undermine economic progress. This is largely on account of India’s dilapidated health care system: a major symptom of the dire lack of funding. India ranks poorly in international rankings on most health indices.
In a mouse study, a drug that has helped millions of people around the world manage their diabetes might also help people ready to kick their nicotine habits.
In this observational study, researchers examined the parturients with increased physiologically intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and short stature; a greater cephalad spread of spinal anesthesia is often observed after a fixed amount of plain bupivacaine is administered. Therefore, we designed this prospective study to test whether IAP and a vertebral column length (VCL) were predictors of spinal spread in parturients undergoing a cesarean section.
Discovery by Scripps Research scientists may offer insight into treating blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia. In a new study, Velia Fowler, PhD, and her lab at The Scripps Research Institute report that a protein called myosin IIA contracts to give red blood cells their distinctive shape.
The findings, published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could shed light on sickle cell diseases and other disorders where red blood cells are deformed.
Rapid genomic sequencing for babies and children with suspected genetic conditions improves health outcomes and saves healthcare dollars – transforming rare disease diagnosis in paediatric and neonatal intensive care.
Energy-based devices are both safe and effective methods of nonsurgical treatment for feminine rejuvenation, according to a review published online in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
