A new study revealed that researchers showed the new guidelines will benefit the battle against diseases such as cancer, assist in the development of new drugs and ensure scientific results are accurate and can be reproduced. It will help unlock body's secrets, aid in battling cancer and other diseases. They have established new guidelines for scientists mapping out the body molecule by molecule to help us better understand how our cells use metals such as iron and magnesium to maintain good health.
According to the previous study, by understanding the biology behind consciousness (or self-awareness) is considered by some to be the final frontier of science. And over the last decade, a fledgling community of "consciousness scientists" have gathered some interesting information about the differences between conscious and unconscious brain activity. But there remains disagreement about whether or not we have a theory that actually explains what is special about the brain activity which produces our miraculous inner worlds.
Certain muscles evolved for the sole purpose of providing special adaptations for human traits, such as walking on two legs, tool use, vocal communication and facial expressions. Apes also have muscles long-believed to be only present in humans and used for walking on two legs, using complex tools, and sophisticated facial and vocal communication. Muscles once thought 'uniquely human' have been discovered in several ape species, challenging long-held theories on the origin and evolution of human soft tissues. The study was published in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution.
An international team of scientists has created a tiny chemistry lab for a rover that will drill beneath the Martian surface looking for signs of past or present life. The toaster oven-sized lab, called the Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer or MOMA, is a key instrument on the ExoMars Rover, a joint mission between the European Space Agency and the Russian space agency Roscosmos, with a significant contribution to MOMA from NASA. It will be launched toward the Red Planet in July 2020.
According to a new study, the researcher identifies key areas of the brain that change patients' ability to recognize hypoglycemia. People with type 1 diabetes are often unable to regulate their blood sugar so it can become dangerously high (hyperglycemia) or dangerously low (hypoglycemia).
A new gene therapy for treating an inherited form of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis has been given an Orphan Drug designation by the European Medicines Agency. The therapy is already in preclinical development at EPFL.
When George Brooks first began investigating lactate, or lactic acid, sports physiologists saw it as a muscle poison that lowered performance. His research over decades has reversed that picture, showing that it is the body's way of revving up for exercise or to fight disease. Clinicians are now planning clinical trials to use lactate to treat traumatic brain injury and a host of illnesses, including heart attacks, inflammation, and swelling.
New biotechnology could make testing potential medicine for pulmonary fibrosis, one of the most common and serious forms of lung disease, quicker and less expensive. The innovation, lung-on-a-chip technology, relies on the same technology used to print electronic chips, photolithography. Developing new medicines to treat pulmonary fibrosis, one of the most common and serious forms of lung disease, is not easy.
According to a study, researchers examined the safety and efficacy of certolizumab in adults with moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. Twice-weekly certolizumab biologic appears to be both safe and effective for the treatment of moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. The study was published online in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
An emergency physician declares that lots of things grow in the spring, including your risk of severe allergic reactions and asthma attacks. So people need to take preventive measures and know when to seek medical care. Spring tends to bring more people to the emergency department.
Glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor, is one of the most difficult-to-treat cancers. Only a handful of drugs are approved to treat glioblastoma, and the median life expectancy for patients diagnosed with the disease is less than 15 months. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications.
