Recovery of Injuries With Aid of Foam Rollers

Foam rollers have become more prevalent in gyms, exercise classes and therapy clinics over the last 10 years. Many physical therapists use foam rollers to help patients recover from injuries – and for good reason. This flexible piece of equipment can help to increase the range of motion, shorten recovery time, and enhance healing.

Elucidation Of Molecular Mechanism Of The GPCR-Arrestin Complex

According to new study, researchers examined the molecular mechanism of activation of the GPCR-arrestin complex. The effectiveness of new drugs depends crucially on a fundamental understanding of the complex processes within the cells of the body. They have deciphered an important molecular step of cellular signal transmission. Their findings could help the development of specific drugs against various diseases, such as asthma and high blood pressure. The study was published in the journal Nature.

Liposomal Bupivacaine Reduce Inpatient Opioid Prescription

According to a new study, researchers showed that Liposomal bupivacaine use in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty is not associated with clinically meaningful reductions in inpatient opioid use, resource utilization, or opioid-related complications. The study was published online in Anesthesiology. Although some trials suggest benefits of liposomal bupivacaine, data on real-world use and effectiveness is lacking.

Dying Cells Have Cellular 'Death Code'

Researchers believe that the molecular "code" that unleashes this more violent variety of cell death. Dying cells generally have two options: go quietly, or go out with a bang. The latter, while more conspicuous, is also mechanistically more mysterious. The study was published in Molecular Cell.
