Bacterial cell quantification after exposure to antimicrobial compounds varies widely throughout industry and healthcare. Numerous methods are employed to quantify these antimicrobial effects. With increasing demand for new preventative methods for disease control. Researchers aimed to compare and assess common analytical methods used to determine antimicrobial effects of novel nanoparticle combinations on two different pathogens.
How do viruses that cause chronic infections, such as HIV or hepatitis c virus, manage to outsmart their hosts' immune systems? The answer to that question has long eluded scientists.
But in a study, published recently in the journal Immunity, researchers from McGill University has uncovered a molecular mechanism that may be a key piece of the puzzle. The discovery could provide new targets for treating a wide range of diseases.
In a new research, scientists have reported one particular environmentally friendly sunscreen ingredient, shinorine, a UV-absorbing substance produced naturally by cyanobacteria and marine algae. The team reported the laboratory production of this ingredient in ACS Synthetic Biology.
Two new articles, published in the journals Arthritis Care & Research and Arthritis & Rheumatology, provide insights on the outlook of rheumatology in the United States, noting that the need for rheumatologists will greatly exceed the projected growth of the rheumatology workforce over the next 15 years.
Low muscle strength during the later teen years has been identified as a risk factor for much later onset of the neurological disease known as ALS , or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. A study at Sahlgrenska Academy published in the Journal of Neurology also links low blood counts at a young age to ALS.
Acute brain lesions on MRI are associated with an increased risk of delayed neurological sequelae after carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, according to a study published in JAMA Neurology.
The aim of this study is to estimate whole-body radiation dose to the radiopharmacist involved in labeling of three different 188Re-labeled compounds, namely, 188Re-Lipiodol, 188Re-tin colloid, and 188Re-hydroxyl-ethylidene-diphosphonate (HEDP) and to compare the occupational burden with the dose limits recommended by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, India.
New research published in BMJ Open has shed light on the reasons driving doctors out of General Practice, following earlier findings that around two out of every five GPs in the South West are planning to leave direct patient care in the next five years.
A research team of the UNN Faculty of Chemistry has developed and synthesized a new multifunctional compound that possesses anti-tumor properties that are due to several independent effects.
A new study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine reported that misperceptions about the harms of marijuana use, including the lack of understanding of the harms associated with secondhand smoke, point to the importance of education and policies that focus public and public health attention on secondhand marijuana smoke.
Mutations in the p63 protein lead to a number of disorders, but none is as severe as the AEC syndrome. Scientists at Goethe University Frankfurt in collaboration with a research group have now discovered that AEC syndrome resembles diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's or ALS more closely than it does other p63-based syndromes. The findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
