Advanced MRI technology reveals previously undetectable brain damage induced by hypertension, a major risk factor for dementia. The study was led by Lorenzo Carnevale, from the Department of Angiocardioneurology and Translational Medicine at the IRCCS Neuromed, Italy.
Scientists are unveiling how our immune system works and malfunctions thanks to an innovative technology that tracks immune cells. The technology has already been used to look at immune cells involved in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis and could provide valuable insights into autoimmune diseases.
In a move to improve cancer care for older adults, the American Society of Clinical Oncology is recommending that all patients age 65 and older receive a geriatric assessment when considering or undergoing chemotherapy.
Every day millions of people around the world are affected by skin allergies. Some occur at random, whereas others may be a sign of a bigger problem. Skin allergies affect the lives of millions of people around the world. While most are not fatal or painful, these allergies do impact the quality of life of patients.
Researchers have identified a network of fluid-filled spaces surrounded by connective tissue that fills the spaces between our organs, surrounding and potentially protecting our insides throughout the body.
In a study, scientists define this network as a new organ, the interstitium, which they say could be the largest organ in the human body. Understanding this network as an organ could help us understand how diseases like cancer spread and it helps explain what healing techniques like acupuncture are tapping into.
Manufacturing shortages are forcing many doctors and pharmacists to sometimes ration injected opioids, reserving them for the patients suffering most. Other patients get slower-acting or less effective pain pills, alternatives with more side effects or even sedation. There is another opioid crisis happening in the U.S., and it has nothing to do with the overdose epidemic: Hospitals are frequently running out of widely used injected painkillers.
A study established that intensive care services are now at your doorstep. After spending two months in a Faridabad hospital, Gambhir now lies comatose in the guest room of his home, which has been converted into a make-shift ICU. His medical bed is surrounded by a vacuum suction machine, an oxygen cylinder, a cardiac monitor and other life-saving equipment.
