A new study shows that embryonic cells retain a memory of the chemical signals to which they are exposed. Without these memories, cells fail organize into distinct tissue types.
After the implementation of physician anesthesiologists into a fragility fracture service, investigators found a statistically significant decrease in emergency room to OR time and decreased length of stay and hospital costs, according to a presentation at the Anesthesiology Annual Meeting.
At least four out of 10 adolescents are addicted to Internet in Bhutan, according to a study conducted by a team of doctors. That means about 40 percent of the high school-going adolescents are addicted to Internet in the country.
In case you plan to take your family member outside the country for treatment, you may need to think twice as your health insurance policy may not cover the cost of treatment incurred outside the country.
With thousands of fans, college basketball games can be almost deafening. Some arenas have decibel meters, which can provide some indication of the noise generated. Researchers wanted to see whether machine learning algorithms could pick out patterns within the raw acoustical data that indicated the crowd's mood, thereby providing clues as to what was happening in the game itself.
Seeing young people glued to screens for hours is now a common sight in many places. As reported by Time, a new study found that young people who spend seven hours or more of screen time to day are susceptible to developing depression and anxiety.
Researchers have developed a new way of controlling magnetism in materials, which could lead to low-power technologies for memory, computing, and sensing devices. A new approach to controlling magnetism in a microchip could open the doors to memory, computing, and sensing devices that consume drastically less power than existing versions. The approach could also overcome some of the inherent physical limitations that have been slowing progress in this area until now.
Animal testing has been at the heart of chemical safety assessments since the 1970s. Looking at the most recent figures, in 2011, more than a million animals were used to test whether chemicals would be harmful to humans in Europe alone. While in 2016, 180,000 animals were used to assess chemical safety in the UK.
Zika virus has been detected in dead monkeys found in Brazil near São José do Rio Preto, São Paulo State, and Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. The animals had been shot or beaten to death by locals who thought they had yellow fever. In fact, the monkeys were bearers of Zika virus, which had made them sick and more vulnerable to attack by humans.
Researchers have discovered a possible path forward in preventing the development of cancers tied to two viruses, including the virus that causes infectious mononucleosis – more commonly known as the monkey or the 'kissing disease' – that infects millions of people around the globe each year.
Brazil's Ministry of Health received reports of 11,524 outbreaks of foodborne diseases between 2000 and 2015, with 219,909 individuals falling sick and 167 dying from the diseases in question. Bacteria caused most outbreaks of such illnesses, including diarrhea and gastroenteritis. The most frequent were Salmonella spp., With 31,700 cases diagnosed in the period (14.4% of the total), Staphylococcus aureus (7.4%), and Escherichia coli (6.1%). The article is published in PLOS ONE
