According to a new study, researchers team have shown that it is possible to rapidly break down solid and liquid waste to grow food with a series of microbial reactors, while simultaneously minimizing pathogen growth. Human waste may one day be a valuable resource for astronauts on deep-space missions. The study has published in Life Sciences in Space Research.
In this study, researchers evaluated the potential safety impact of using a simple color-coded tray for anesthetic drug preparation and storage. Assessment included observation of 30 cases as well as 20 semi structured interviews with the anesthetists using the rainbow trays.
In a new study, published in Cell Reports, researchers from the William Harvey Research Institute at Queen Mary University of London used cells derived from urine to take the first step in generating an artificial adrenal gland.
The brain in people with early-stage schizophrenia, but not bipolar disorder, ages more quickly than normal, a new study published in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin suggests.
The ability to quantify the extent of kidney damage and predict the life remaining in the kidney, using an image obtained at the time when a patient visits the hospital for a kidney biopsy, now is possible using a computer model based on artificial intelligence (AI). The study findings, were published in the journal Kidney International Reports,
A new study published in the Journal of American College Of Cardiology reported that guidance on using statin therapy in primary ASCVD prevention in the growing elderly population (>65 years of age) differs markedly. The discrepant recommendations, place them into the context of available evidence and identify circumstances in which uncertainty may hamper the appropriate use of statins in the elderly.
A new study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, published by Springer, shows that opioid prescribing has dropped after a peak in 2012. Lead author Katherine Hadlandsmyth in the US further noted that the decline was mostly due to decreases in long-term opioid prescribing, which carries a much greater risk for harmful side effects, addiction, and overdose, relative to short-term prescribing.
Features of a natural environment in the home neighbourhood associated with physical activity of older people, according to a new study. The study findings indicated that higher habitat diversity within natural areas correlates with higher PA among older people without walking difficulties and the presence of water correlates with higher PA among those with walking difficulties.
Exposure to e-cigarette flavoring chemicals and liquids can cause significant inflammation to monocytes, a type of white blood cell — and many flavoring compounds are also toxic, with cinnamon, vanilla and buttery flavors among the worst, according to a study published in Frontiers in Physiology. The study adds to growing evidence on the harmful health effects of e-cigarettes.
A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine gives insight into the magnitude of rates of arterial and venous thrombosis increased in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), such as polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis.
