According to a new study, researchers estimated that nearly a quarter (23.9%) of initial opioid prescriptions in Ontario had a daily dose of more than 50-milligram morphine equivalents (MME), exceeding the suggested dose threshold for opioid prescriptions outlined in North American clinical guidelines.

According to a recent study, the rates of suicide among students in the UK has reached record levels. The international study, by Raymond Kwok and colleagues at Hong Kong University's Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention, provides further evidence that large numbers of students attending UK universities are struggling to maintain their mental health.
Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. It is the control knob of all control knobs. It is so special about the molecule. To look at it, there is nothing inherently peculiar about the small four-carbon backbone structure of GABA. Solvation effects in solution allow GABA to take on five different possible conformations, some compact, and others more extended. At the receptor level, this flexibility means that GABA is a highly 'druggable' target.
Researchers have learned that precursor cells for skeletal muscles actually also give rise to neurons, blood vessels, blood cells and immune cells, pushing science one step closer to generating body parts in a laboratory. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
A new study estimates that people struggling with Ménière's disease have shined a spotlight on the neurological disorder. The symptoms, which include unpredictable bouts of dizziness, hearing loss, and ringing in the ears, may get progressively worse over time and can greatly interfere with work, driving and daily activities.
A study examined that diabetes data management, today announced the results of its recent study which examined diabetes healthcare professionals' use of CGM data. The study asked 38 diabetes healthcare professionals (29 endocrinologists; nine diabetes educators) to assess CGM data from 10 people with type 1 diabetes within the Glooko platform.
A new study, researchers found that patients treated with paramedic oxygen delivery using a newer, more flexible laryngeal breathing tube may have a greater survival rate after sudden cardiac arrest than the traditional intubation breathing tube.
In a study appearing in ACS' journal Molecular Pharmaceutics, scientists report that they have developed a non-invasive "disease screening pill" that can make cancerous tumors light up when exposed to near-infrared light in mice without using radiation
A new scientific advisory reaffirms the American Heart Association's recommendation to eat fish– especially those rich in Omega-3 fatty acids twice a week to help reduce the risk of heart failure, coronary heart disease, cardiac arrest and the most common type of stroke (ischemic)
Whether the initiating time of radioiodine (RAI) therapy will affect the clinical outcome in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) remains controversial. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of RAI therapy initiating time in response to initial therapy in low– to intermediate–risk DTC
A new study by researchers from the University of Chicago Medicine shows that bacterial signals are crucial to the development of a precursor condition to leukemia, which can be induced by disrupting the intestinal barrier or by introducing a bacterial infection
