New research conducted by physicians at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has revealed a dramatic increase in torticollis (an abnormal twisting of the neck) and plagiocephaly (a flattening of the head often seen in conjunction with torticollis) in infants exposed to opioid medications in utero . The study findings were published in The Journal of Pediatrics

In this study, dermatologists characterize the effect of geographic variations in dermatologist density on the provision of dermatology procedures within Medicare. This was a cross-sectional study using the 2013 Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Database. Dermatology-related procedures were defined by the top 50 billing codes accounting for more than 95% of procedures billed by dermatologists.
According to Loyola Medicine, Neurologists and Neurosurgeons, we have seen an "explosive evolution" of techniques to restore blood flow to areas of the brain endangered by stroke or clogged arteries. The study findings were published in the MedLink Neurology .
A new study led by researchers from the University of Southern California demonstrates the distinct value of occupational therapy for improving the health and quality of life of young adults living with diabetes. The study was published in the journal Diabetes Care.
In this study, features of trabecular bone architecture are thought to re?ect regional loading of the skeleton, and thus difference between primate taxa with different locomotor and postural modes. However, there are several systemic factors that affect bone structure that could pay to the primary factor determining, interspeci?c differences in bone structure.
In a new review, researchers found that the highly prolific marine sponge genera (Batzella, Crambe and Monanchora) represent a rich source of novel compounds with potential applications for cancer and other therapeutic areas.
According to a new study led by Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), researchers estimate the link between fecundability–the average per-cycle probability of conception and marijuana use. The study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health (JECH).
A recent study has specified that women who start menstruating at the age of 11 or earlier, or enter menopause before 47 have a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. Some other factors that were associated with elevated odds of heart problems in later years were miscarriage, stillbirth, undergoing a hysterectomy, and bearing children at a young age. Study suggested that women who had premature reproductive cycles or a history of adverse events should be screened for heart problems.
According to a new study, researchers have defined atom-by-atom changes in a family of proteins linked to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a group of brain disorders known as frontotemporal dementia and degenerative diseases of muscle and bone. The study published in the journal Molecular Cell.
In a new research published in Cancer Cell, scientists wanted to fight the often fatal acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) by disabling parts of the machinery in cells called the transcriptional machinery that determines when genes are switched on and off. Researchers have developed a way of side-lining one of the most dangerous bad actors in leukaemia. The approach depends on throwing a molecular wrench into the gears of an important machine that sets genes into motion, enabling cancer cells to proliferate.
In spite of the increasing importance of guidelines in India and the growing interest in the use of evidence in them, almost nothing is known about the development and quality of Indian guidelines, and how evidence is used in the guideline development process. In the present study, experts aimed to fill this knowledge gap with respect to Indian guidelines for four conditions with highest disease burden in India.
