Cholera: A Bangladeshi Prescription

For decades, health officials have understood how to prevent cholera, doctors have known how to treat it, and development experts have recognized that with clean water and sanitation, outbreaks rarely become epidemics. Unfortunately, the world is not so simple and neat, and the nightmare of cholera persists.

Localized Cooling Limits Damage Caused By Heart Attack

According to this study, researchers have declared that the localized cooling of the heart during a heart attack, a world first. By cooling part of the heart prior to and following angioplasty, the cardiologists believe that the damage from a heart attack can be limited. By cooling the part of the heart that is affected by a clogged or constricted coronary artery, there is less damage to the heart muscle after the constriction is opened.

Early Detection of Common Cancers by Single Blood Test

Researchers developed a single blood test, CancerSEEK, that screens for eight common cancer types and helps identify the location of cancer. The test is a unique non-invasive, multianalyte test that simultaneously evaluates levels of eight cancer proteins and the presence of cancer gene mutations from circulating DNA in the blood. The study findings published in Science.

Protein Longevity Secrets; Study Revealed

A study showed that Klotho proteins play an important role in the regulation of longevity and metabolism. In a recent study, researchers revealed the three-dimensional structure of one of these proteins, beta-Klotho, illuminating its intricate mechanism and therapeutic potential. The study published in Nature.

Flu Spread just by Breathing, a new study

According to a new University of Maryland-led study released, flu transmission reveals that we may pass the flu to others just by breathing. While, people commonly believe that they can catch the flu by exposure to droplets from an infected person's coughs or sneezes or by touching contaminated surfaces. 

Baby Brains Could Predict Before It Happens

Researchers at Penn State are using new statistical analysis methods to compare how we observe infants develop new skills with the unseen changes in electrical activity in the brain, or electroencephalography ( EEG ) power. They found that most babies appear to learn new skills in irregular bursts, while their EEG power grows steadily behind the scenes. The study was published in the  Child Development 

First Map Of Gene Regulation In Human Brain Evolution

In this study, researchers have developed the first map of gene regulation in human neurogenesis, the process by which neural stem cells turn into brain cells and the cerebral cortex expands in size. The scientists identified factors that govern the growth of our brains. Brain development is guided by the expression of genes in certain brain regions or cell types, as well as during specific time frames.
