A new study reveals how dengue virus manages to reproduce itself in an infected person without triggering the body's normal defenses. Duke researchers report that dengue pulls off this hoax by co-opting a specialized structure within host cells for its own purposes, like a lazy roommate sneaking bits of his laundry into the communal wash.
In a new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers have discovered that genetic variations in the anatomy of the lungs could serve as indicators to help identify people who have low, but stable, lung function early in life, and those who are particularly at risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) because of a smoke-induced decline in lung function.
In a new study, researchers have found that almost all surveyed primary care physicians reported recommending both pneumococcal vaccines (PCV13 and PPSV23), but a disconnect seems to exist between perceived clarity and knowledge of the recommendations.
A new research suggests that nearly half of US women have at least mild deficiency in the nutrient iodine , and it could impair their fertility . The study findings were published in the journal Human Reproduction .
Improved disease surveillance at Australian ports and borders will help prevent the growing threat of dengue infection spreading, with a new QUT study identifying potential risk factors linked to dengue outbreaks beyond climatic conditions
- Improved disease surveillance needed to prevent dengue threat
- Social factors linked to trends in dengue outbreaks
- Overseas and interstate travelers pose threat in transmission of dengue across Australia
- Rainwater tanks, housing style and economic status identified as potential dengue risk factors
ViLim Ball technology created at a Lithuanian startup company Fidens helps to reduce uncontrollable shaking hands, which is one of the symptoms of essential tremor. The technology is effective in 7 out of 10 cases, and it can also be used to alleviate morning stiffness of joints for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers.
The youths, the largest section of the population in Nepal, have a responsibility towards making the 17 Sustainable Development Goals a reality in the country.
The forensic science experts, generally associated with an analysis of evidence on crime scenes have been roped in by Gujarat State Civil Supplies Corporation (GSCSC) Ltd to assure quality control of the food grains meant for purposes such as midday meal scheme and public distribution system.
A new study explores how herpes simplex virus might change when passed from one individual to another, information that may prove useful in future development of therapeutics and vaccines. This rare glimpse into a transmission event reveals nearly perfect genetic transmission of the virus from a father to his son and lays the foundation for future studies exploring the genetic diversity of this virus. The study is published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Idiopathic disease is the most frequent diagnosis in a uveitis clinic. The need to distinguish sarcoidosis from idiopathic uveitis is controversial. However, cardiac involvement in sarcoidosis can be life-threatening. The study reports a series of patients with uveitis and cardiac sarcoidosis to illustrate the importance of categorizing the causes of uveitis .
A growing number of women are likely to face a similar choice in coming years as imaging centers across the country add three-dimensional (3-D) mammography, also called digital breast tomosynthesis, to the two-dimensional (2-D) screening women customarily receive.
