Study Sheds light on How the Intestine Repairs Itself

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.

Lymphoma Linked to Risk for Breast Cancer

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.

MMV Malaria Box Phenotyped against Pathogenic Parasites

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.

Anaesthetic attention: Bilateral Subclavian Artery Stenosis

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.
