A new study examined that People who snore may have extensive tissue damage in the nerves and muscles of the soft palate. This can, in turn, create problems with swallowing and contribute to the development of sleep apnea. Treatment strategies aimed at early intervention to stop snoring might have beneficial effects in healing or preventing the development of sleep apnea.

New research examined that nodules located in the upper pole of the thyroid gland may carry a greater risk for malignancy than those in the lower pole. Sonographic characteristics of nodules such as microcalcifications, hypoechoicity, infiltrative margins, increased vascularity, and taller-than-wide are all known to be associated with greater malignancy risk, but no prior study has examined the risk about a location in the upper versus lower pole of the thyroid.
According to a study, researcher considers the risks of military service, skin cancer may not be top of mind. As U.S. military personnel are more likely to develop skin cancer than the general population. The study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
A new study analyzes that when hospital emergency departments become overcrowded, care becomes more fragmented, but they found that technologies designed to track and eventually improve staffing levels must be judiciously chosen. The study was published in the Journal of Emergency Nursing.
The distribution of incubation times in most cases, they contend, is close to 'lognormal' meaning that the logarithms of the incubation periods, rather than the incubation periods themselves, are normally distributed. Working with a simple mathematical model in which chance plays a key role, researchers calculated how long it would take a bacterial infection or cancer cell to take over a network of healthy cells.
Microvascular changes in the retina detected by using noninvasive optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography align well with imaging and biomarker evidence of preclinical Alzheimer's disease, a new study shows
Disease hunters are using genetic sequencing in their investigation of the ongoing food poisoning outbreak linked to romaine lettuce, a technique that is revolutionizing the detection of germs in food
Recently, accumulating evidence has suggested that Enteromorpha clathrata polysaccharide (ECP) could contribute to the treatment of diseases. However, as a promising candidate for marine drug development, although ECP has been extensively studied, less consideration has been given to exploring its effect on gut microbiota
This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ultrasound-guided pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) for the intercostal nerves (ICNs) in the management of thoracic post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN)
The present study aimed to compare concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) plus cetuximab (C) with CCRT alone in locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma(NPC)
More should be done to take care of the mental health of transgender people in the US; a new survey carried out in Colorado indicates. The survey results show that four in every ten respondents suffered from depression.
The first study to compare how well different lung cancer risk models select ever-smokers for screening shows that even the best-performing models require refinements to improve their predictive value. The study was conducted by researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American Cancer Society
