Parents Of Multiple-Birth Children Experience Higher Rates Of Depression

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.

Protein Molecules Regulate Formation Of Myelin Sheaths

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.

Increase In The Level Of Noise Increases The Atrial Fibrillaton Level

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.

Many Surgery Cases Of Severe Congenital Hyperinsulinism Have Been Benefited

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.

New Study Explains Bacteroides Fragilis Effect On Gut Colonization

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
