A new study published in the journals Cancer Cell has revealed that genomic technologies provide better insights into intestinal metaplasia (IM), a known risk factor for gastric (stomach) cancer. Patients with IM are six times more likely to develop stomach cancer than those without. The research could also help detect patients who are infected with the Helicobacter pylori bacteria, which is also linked to the disease.

A new study published in the Review of Economic Studies finds that Rhode Island's 6-year prostitution decriminalization policy increased the size of the sex market, but it also appears that during this period both rape offenses and female gonorrhea incidence declined dramatically.
Students' team from Kaunas University of Technology ( KTU ) is working on the development of dissolving contact eye lenses , which can be of great assistance for those suffering from glaucoma. The KTU team's Nano Lens idea of dissolving lens for glaucoma treatment has won the second place at the Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge in Best Global Innovation category.
According to this study, they examined 3615 extracted genes with dynamic expression during reprogramming process from five human cell types and addressed that shared reprogramming route exists in human cellular reprogramming.
New research showed that the marine cryptophytes offer a great source of EPA, DHA, and other ω-3 PUFAs when compared to freshwater species and marine cryptophytes have more DHA.
Researchers have developed a new way to magnetic molecules in the human body, paving the way to a new generation of low-cost magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ) technology that would transform our ability to diagnose and treat diseases including cancer, diabetes, and dementia. The study was published in the Science Advances.
Extended-pulsed fidaxomicin, delivering 20 doses over a longer time period after initial daily dosing, appears superior to standard-dose vancomycin for sustained cure of Clostridium difficile infection in patients age 60 or older, according to a study published in the journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases.
Implanted devices send targeted electrical stimulation to the nervous system to interfere with abnormal brain activity, and it is commonly assumed that neurons are the only important brain cells that need to be stimulated by these devices. However, research published in Nature Biomedical Engineering reveals that it may also be important to target the supportive glial cells surrounding the neurons.
Although exercise counseling has increased, two in five adults with arthritis still do not receive it, according to results from a study published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
A new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, has shown that a virus injected directly into the bloodstream can reach tumors deep inside the brain and switch on the body's own defense system to attack them.
In a study published in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, researchers from NSW and the University of South Australia reveal that errors involving opioids are almost three times higher than previously reported in other healthcare settings.
According to a recent study, breast cancer is a growing epidemic in India. It could kill 76,000 women a year by 2020. It claimed more than 70,000 lives in 2012. At the heart of the issue is the country's rapid economic development, which has made Indian women more susceptible to the disease, without building the infrastructure to prevent and detect it. But the good news is that boosting breast cancer awareness and encouraging early detection could play a significant role in reducing it.
