Combating Antimicrobial Resistance with Solar Energy

As Nepal commemorates the third anniversary of the two devastating earthquakes, our country still struggles to bounce back. While there is much that remains to be addressed—from rebuilding to restoring basic services— the lack of reliable electricity is causing many hardships. This includes threatening the prevention and treatment of an increasing number of drug-resistant infections known as antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Individuals Electronic Health Records Showed In Emergency Contacts

A researchers showed three major academic medical centers in New York City is showing that emergency contact information, which is included in individuals' electronic health records (EHRs), can be used to generate family trees. Those family trees in turn can be used to study heritability in hundreds of medical conditions. The study was published in the journal Cell.

Ayushman Bharat: Game Changer In The Healthcare

Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare J P Nadda, presided over a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony with four States – Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Union Territory of Chandigarh for implementing Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Swasthya Suraksha Mission (PMRSSM).

Hydration Without Over-Drinking, New Study

Proper hydration is one of the most important aspects of the healthy physical activity. Drinking the right amount of fluids before, during and after physical activity is vital to providing your body the fluids it needs to perform properly.

Sports dietitians assist athletes by developing individualized hydration plans that enhance performance in training and competition while minimizing risks for dehydration, over-hydration and heat illness and injury.

Key Findings of HTLV-1 and Its Implications

University of Minnesota researchers in the dentistry school-based Institute for Molecular Virology (IMV) have made a key discovery that could have important implications for developing a strategy to stop the spread of a highly infectious virus currently spreading among remote areas of central Australia.

Called human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1), infection rates are reportedly exceeding 40% among adults in those communities. HTLV-1, the first human cancer virus discovered, can cause leukemia and lymphoma.

Protein Interactions Reveals Cancer Genetic Data

Researchers helped in identifying promising treatment strategies for several cancer types, researchers have now found that it also provides an opportunity to probe the intricacies of protein interactions. By merging cancer functional genetic data with information on protein interactions, scientists can explore protein complexes at massive scale. "Dependency" mapping reveals the genetic adaptations cancer cells make to survive.
