Retroviruses, a broad category of viruses that infect humans and other vertebrates, have much greater diversity than previously thought, according to new research presented in PLOS Pathogens by Xiaoyu Xu and colleagues at Nanjing Normal University, China.
Researchers have shown that Using MRI measurements of the brain's neural connections, or 'white matter,' the neural circuitry strengthened and their reading performance improved after just eight weeks of a specialized tutoring program. The study was published in Nature Communications.
A research team involving The Australian National University (ANU) has invented a system that can detect chemicals in miniscule quantities and could be developed into a portable drug-testing kit to help authorities crack down on the illegal drug trade.
Researchers determine that the study is to test the hypothesis that ICU telemedicine decreases ICU patient interhospital transfers. Only a minority of intensive care units (ICUs) in smaller, community and regional ICUs in the United States hire intensivists to provide advanced critical care, but many employ ICU telemedicine (Tele-ICU) to help fill the gap. The Veteran's Administration (VA) has implemented a Tele-ICU program to provide remote access to comprehensive acute care expertise for smaller, community, and regional ICUs in its health system.
People who avoid animal fat could experience slower muscle growth when they exercise because of choline deficiency, new research shows. "Less than the ideal amount of choline intake may be impairing your strength gain," said Chang Woock Lee.
However, consuming more than the recommended amount of choline did not produce additional benefits, he said here at the American College of Sports Medicine 2018 Annual Meeting.
An Atlas-award winning study reported in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology has found that traditional uses of medicinal plants in the Peruvian rainforest are, to a large extent, backed up by science. Samples taken from plants identified by people from the Iquitos-Nauta road communities and studied in the lab have been found to contain extracts that are harmful to protozoan parasites responsible for malaria and other infectious conditions common in the tropics.
Multiple barriers may stop high-risk individuals from accessing an HIV drug that can reduce the subsequent risk of infection, according to a new University of Michigan study.
Physical activity does not offset the risk for myocardial infarction that comes with excess body weight, a new analysis from the long-term Tromsø Study suggests.
Researchers developed gestational diabetes and were later diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Then in 2011, Boulanger was told she had 90% blockages in all five vessels supplying blood to the heart. The quintuple bypass surgery that followed was "the scariest moment of my life."
InDevR Inc. announced product release of the first ever commercial reagent kit designed explicitly for assessment of neuraminidase (NA) in influenza vaccines. The new VaxArray kit is poised to help improve influenza vaccines by empowering manufacturers with a standardized method to meet current regulatory requirements and to prepare for future trends. The VaxArray NA kit is also expected to serve as an important new tool in the push for a more broadly protective or "universal" flu vaccine.
Researchers from the Emory Antibiotic Resistance Center describe the first strain of carbapenem-resistant, hypermucoviscous Klebsiella pneumoniae exhibiting colistin heteroresistance and enhanced virulence isolated from a patient in the United States. The research is presented at ASM Microbe, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, held from June 7th to 11th, in Atlanta, Georgia.
