A new study in Kingston is looking at more effective ways of treating homeless or vulnerably housed people who have end-of-life or life-limiting conditions. Dr. Meredith MacKenzie, a physician at the Street Health Centre, is trying to better understand the barriers some in the Kingston community face when trying to access palliative care.

The research found without having to remove the cochlea from the temporal bone synchrotron light can produce high-quality images that allow researchers to distinguish between damaged and healthy nerve fibers and sensory cells. For those suffering from hearing loss, synchrotron imaging may hold promise for the future of imaging the inner ear.
Researchers at the University of Tsukuba and Kansai Medical University in Japan reveal matricellular protein Thrombospondin-1 (Thbs1) contributes to the development of aortic aneurysm in mice and humans.
According to a study, mothers diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have an elevated risk of developing postpartum depression symptoms. Gestational diabetes mellitus refers to impaired glucose metabolism during pregnancy.
Blood Glucose Levels
Often, mothers with GDM have too high blood glucose levels, and this increases the risk of various adverse effects on the fetus. Moreover, GDM increases the mother's risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life.
Postpartum depression symptoms are experienced by 10–15% of mothers after childbirth. The newly published study used the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale to assess depression symptoms during the third trimester of pregnancy and eight weeks after delivery.
When adults are participants in school recess—leading games, monitoring play and ensuring conflicts are mediated quickly—children are more likely to be engaged in recess activities, a new study has found. Massey's findings were published recently in the journal Preventive Medicine Reports.
Allergies can be very dangerous. The appearance on the skin red spots a common cause of treatment to the dermatologist. This phenomenon causes around 50 diseases that require mandatory treatment. Particularly noteworthy increase in size and are spread, the emergence of itching. It often manifests itself as allergic to the skin. Consider treatment and pictures of red spots that itch.
Approximately 14 million people living with HIV worldwide have yet to be tested, impacting the effectiveness of HIV treatment and prevention programs. Testing rates are especially poor among at-risk groups in low- and middle-income countries. In China, infection rates among men who have sex with men (MSM) remain high.
Eagle Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Eagle" or "the Company") (Nasdaq:EGRX) today announced completion of enrollment of the Company's second clinical study to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of RYANODEX® (dantrolene sodium for injectable suspension) for the treatment of exertional heat stroke ("EHS"), an investigational new indication for the product.
Treatment for new health problems, or acute care visits, encompass over one-third of all ambulatory care delivered in the United States. Given the high costs of emergency departments, many insurance plans have created incentives to encourage patients to receive that care elsewhere.
In response to patient expectations for more convenience and too long wait times at traditional physician outpatient practices, alternative care facilities such as urgent care centers, retail clinics, and telemedicine have rapidly emerged.
In a study published today in JAMA Internal Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital researchers document that among private health plan enrollees, in recent years, there has been a substantial shift from emergency departments to urgent care centers when it comes to patients receiving care for low-acuity conditions.
A new study implicates remodeling of nerves in the airways as a key contributor to heightened sensitivity and airway constriction in patients with asthma. The study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
According to a study, a cellular level, how chronic sleep loss can impair metabolism, lead to weight gain. Losing just one night of sleep can have a negative impact on human metabolism at the tissue level. The findings may explain how long-term shift work and chronic sleep loss can impair metabolism and adversely affect human body composition.
Previous studies have shown that the risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes is greater in those who suffer from chronic sleep loss or who carry out shift work. The study is the first to link how sleep loss, at the cellular level, affects metabolism in two tissues that are key to regulating metabolism.
It found that even one night of sleep loss similar to the lack of sleep someone working an overnight shift might experience can alter how genes and proteins are expressed in a tissue-specific manner in adipose tissue (fat) and skeletal muscle. The study was published in the journal Science Advances.
What if social behavior affected the progression of even noncontagious diseases? This is precisely what has been demonstrated by French CNRS teams, with support from the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD), Paris-Sud University, the University of Montpellier, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), and colleagues from Spain and Australia.
