According to a new study published in The Journal of Physiology, researchers have been able to document for the first time how the same period of inactivity has a greater and more severe impact on the muscle power of the lower limbs of the elderly than young people, which is essential for movements like climbing the stairs.

According to a new study published in the JAMA Intern Medicine, among physicians who ordered a greater number of CTPA scans, a statistically significant decrease in the proportion of positive results. The association may reflect a fundamental relationship between individual physician overutilization and decreasing diagnostic yield and is deserving of greater attention.
The study showed that regular use of e-cigarettes does not have any negative impact on smokers. The study findings were published in the Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology
A new study, published in the Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation (JNER), have described a video game called Balloon Buddies, which is a tool that enables those recovering from conditions such as a stroke to engage and play together with healthy volunteers such as therapists and family members as a form of rehabilitation.
A new study published in an issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association has shown that individuals undergoing obesity surgery to reduce the size of their stomachs have a halved risk of death compared to others who were being treated with diet and lifestyle changes alone.
A new study, carried out at Imperial College London, suggests that psychedelics, like magic mushrooms, can help relieve the symptoms of depression, without the 'dulling' of emotions linked with antidepressants, by reviving the brain's activity and effectively reconnecting patients with their emotions.
A new study published in the journal BMC Medicine has suggested that frailty and cognitive impairment before surgery are associated with developing complications after surgery, but not the age of older patients. In addition to frailty, depressive symptoms and smoking were also associated with developing postoperative complications following elective surgery.
The researchers show that the latest cholera pandemic originated in Asia, and that most of antibiotic resistant strains come from this continent. They recently published two studies tracing the history of cholera outbreaks in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean from the last 60 years. This study has been published in Science.
In this study, scientists discovered that bile acids can turn fat-storing cells into fat-burning ones. This process is called thermogenesis (literally, "heat production") and it helps maintain body temperature in cold environments. Beige cells have recently attracted a lot of attention, especially because adults have very low numbers of active brown adipocytes that burn energy.
According to new research published in the JAMA Surgery, surgeons trained in nonuniversity- and university-based residency programs have distinct practice patterns. When compared to the same clinical setting, surgeons from both training backgrounds achieve similar clinical outcomes.
Researchers has defined a novel 'microtube'-based platform to study how tubular organs, such as the heart and the kidneys, form under the various topographical restrictions commonly experienced inside the body. This study was published in Nature Communications.
The parasite that causes malaria has two specialized proteins that protect its messenger RNAs — genetic material that encodes for proteins — until the parasite takes up residence in a new mosquito or a human host. A new study, published in the journal mSphere, describes the two proteins and reveals an additional role that one may play to facilitate RNA-based interactions between the parasite, its mosquito vector, and its human host.
