A Chinese research team has developed a gold-nanoparticle-based multifunctional vehicle to transport the "gene scissors" to the tumor cell genome. As the authors report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, their nonviral transport and release platform of gene-editing systems has the additional advantage of combining hyperthermal cancer therapy with genetic modification.

In the current study, researchers declined a new evidence and guidance recommend against the practice of routine pre-operative laboratory tests. Despite these recommendations, the tradition of routine preoperative testing is still prevalent due many reasons. Guidance were provided on the use of pre-operative laboratory tests before elective surgeries for last one and half decades.
A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society has indicated that adults aged 65 years and older who are hospitalized with fever or respiratory symptoms during influenza seasons are less likely to have a provider-ordered influenza test than younger patients.
Anew study from China suggests, a decline in kidney function may be an independent risk factor for lower lumbar spine bone mineral density ( LBMD ) as healthy Chinese postmenopausal women age. The study was punctuated in the journal Menopause , both the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and LBMD progressively declined with age.
Cystic fibrosis shortens life by making the lungs prone to repeated bacterial infections and associated inflammation. A new study, published in PLoS Pathogens , has shown that the lungs' bacterial population changes in the first few years of life as respiratory infections and inflammation set in.
A new study found that women who took a specially prepared blend of minerals and nutrients for a month saw their 3-mile run times drop by almost a minute. The women who took the supplement also saw improvements in distance covered in 25 minutes on a stationary bike and a third test in which they stepped on and off a bench, according to new research.
In the study, scientists revealed that Crew members aboard the International Space Station will begin conducting research soon to improve the way we grow crystals on Earth. The information gained from the experiments could speed up the process for drug development, benefiting humans around the world.
An observational study published in BMJ Quality & Safety has suggested that better satisfaction with GP hours, for example, because of extended opening hours, does not affect the number of visits made to A&E in their geographical area. However, making the appointment booking process easier for patients was associated with slightly fewer A&E visits in that area.
For radiosynovectomy , researchers have measured the retention time of yttrium-90 ( 90 Y) hydroxyapatite (particle size 1-10 μm) within the knee joint space and evaluated the treatment responses in knees with rheumatoid arthritis .
By identifying why skin immunity declines in old age, a UCL-led research team has found that an anti-inflammatory pill could help make vaccines more effective for elderly people.
The study, published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, found that an excessive inflammation reaction in older people can obstruct the immune system.
A study suggests that people with diabetes than diabetics living in more affluent areas. Communities with lower employment, income and education that have scant resources to support exercise and healthy eating have long been linked to an increased risk of developing diabetes. The study published in Diabetes Care.
