In this study, researchers investigated a morphometric structures of the branches involved in the sural nerve and sural nerve formation. The sural nerve (SN) is formed by the juncture of the medial sural cutaneous nerve (MSCN), which is a branch of the tibial nerve (TN), and the lateral sural cutaneous nerve (LSCN), which is a branch of the common peroneal nerve (CPN), in the posterior of the leg.

Birth control is the conscious control of the birth rate by methods which temporarily prevent conception by interfering with the normal process of ovulation, fertilization, and implantation.
Information on the hemoglobin status of pregnant and lactating mothers was scarce. The objectives of this study were to determine the burden and determinants of anemia in the pregnant and lactating mother.
The U.S researchers have gained new insights into how the small intestine repairs itself after the injury caused by intestinal rotavirus infection. Their findings have led them to propose that how the intestine repairs itself seems to depend on the type of damage, and they found that triggers are actually essential for repairing the virus-caused injury. The study appeared in Cell Reports.
A new study published in JAMA Oncology reports that for women who have survived Hodgkin's lymphoma, the risk for subsequent estrogen-receptor (ER)–negative breast cancer is nearly six times greater than for the general population. The study also found that the increased risk for ER-positive breast cancer is not as significant and is primarily associated with the previous radiotherapy.
A team of researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder have made important discoveries about a protein called AKT that is key to the formation of new memories.
A Singapore-India collaborative research project between the Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD) and CSIR-National Chemical Laboratories (NCL) completed phenotypic screening of a large collection of potent chemical inhibitors (known as MMV Malaria Box), against pathogenic parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium falciparum, causative agents of human toxoplasmosis and malaria.
Now, new research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that such circadian rhythm disruptions also occur much earlier in people whose memories are intact but whose brain scans show early, preclinical evidence of Alzheimer's . The research was published in the journal JAMA Neurology .
In a study published in the current issue of the journal Child Development, scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that teens who were engaged in civic activities were more likely than non-engaged peers to attain higher income and education levels as adults.
In a new study, researchers wondered if personality changes that begin early, when MCI memory loss becomes noticeable, might help predict Alzheimer's disease at its earliest stages. The research published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
Electrical stimulation of the pharynx appears to be a promising new approach to the treatment of dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, in patients who have sustained a stroke, a PHAST-TRAC study suggests.
In a study, the prevalence of SAS was 1.9% in the free-living cohorts and 7.1% in the clinical cohorts. SAS was significantly associated with smoking and higher levels of systolic blood pressure. Higher levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were inversely and significantly associated with SAS. The preoperative investigations were consistent with her existing medical problems.
