According to a study, the researcher analyzed that Parents of twins and other multiple-birth children experience higher than average rates of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues, particularly during the first three months. The study was published in the Journal of Psychiatric Practice. About half of parents of multiples say they could have benefited from treatment for symptoms of mental health problems but less than ten percent received such care. There is a large, unmet need for mental health treatment in parents of multiples in the perinatal period, especially the early postpartum months.

According to a study, researchers examined that around 200,000 people in Germany suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS), a serious neurological condition that has no known cure. Although the causes are far from being known, they do know that the immune system erroneously attacks the protective sheaths around nerve fibers. They discovered how the formation of myelin sheaths is regulated by protein molecules. This knowledge could be used to help MS patients by stimulating the formation of new myelin sheaths after a relapse.
The researcher estimates that an increasing level of noise, the incidence of atrial fibrillation also increases dramatically. They found that the incidence of atrial fibrillation in subjects with extreme noise annoyance reactions increases to 23%, compared to just 15% without this environmental impact. Looking at the proportion of sources of extreme noise pollution, aircraft noise came first with 84% during the day and 69% during sleep. The study was published in the International Journal of Cardiology.
Researchers have been able to capture images of measles viruses as they emerge from infected cells, using state of the art cryo-electron tomography techniques. The new images will help with a greater understanding of measles and related viruses and could give hints on antiviral drug strategies likely to work across multiple viruses of this type. The study was published in Nature Communications.
Researchers team has made a breakthrough in the visualization of human brain tissue at the microscopic level. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications, one of the world's most-cited and comprehensive multidisciplinary scientific journals.
A new study estimates that researchers found astronauts on the International Space Station found that exposure to high levels of outdoor artificial light at night (ALAN) in the blue spectrum was associated with an increased risk for two cancers. The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives.
A study estimates that nearly 500 cases of infants with severe congenital hyperinsulinism who underwent partial or near-total removal of their pancreas for persistent hypoglycemia at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) showed that surgeons can cure virtually all patients with the focal, a form of the rare genetic disease. Surgery also can prevent complications in patients with the diffuse form, in which defective insulin-producing cells occur throughout the pancreas.
The researcher has shown that targeting metabolism in growing cells holds promise for the treatment of skin diseases like psoriasis that are characterized by skin overgrowth resulting from excessive cell division, known as hyperproliferation. The study was published in Nature Medicine.
Patients with isolated hip fracture can be in the operating room (OR) within 48 hours of presentation, which can lead to improved outcomes if a multidisciplinary team is focused on this goal, new research shows.
Major cardiac events were fewer at 5 years in patients receiving a radial artery graft as the second conduit in coronary bypass surgery (CABG) vs. a saphenous-vein graft (SVG) in a patient-level meta-analysis of randomized trials. The study is published in the New England Journal of Medicine
The mammalian gut is warm, moist, and incredibly nutrient-rich–an environment that is perfect for bacterial growth. The communities of "good bacteria" in the gut, commonly referred to as the microbiome, are vital partners for the body, helping to digest fiber, extract nutrients, and prevent various diseases
Seasonal allergies can be a nuisance for children as well as adults. And in some young children, the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be mistaken for inattentiveness or learning disabilities
