New Protein That Plays A Major Role In Genetic Stability Of Our Cells

A study examined that researchers have identified a new protein that is important to the genetic stability of our cells. It may be significant for the development of new drugs against genetically determined diseases like cancer, sterility, and premature aging. All of our cells contain genetic material, DNA, which controls the activity of the cells. If the genetic material is damaged, cancer cells may develop. Therefore, many proteins and enzymes are responsible for stabilizing and protecting our DNA against permanent damage and mutations.

Transgender People Access To Mental Health Treatment

The researcher has found that transgender people who are denied access to mental health treatment experience a higher risk of substance abuse and attempted suicide. They hold critical implications for service access and delivery policies that protect transgender help-seekers in the health care system. An estimated 1.8 million Americans identify as transgender. The study was published online in Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research,

CardiAmp Therapy Shown Improvements In Heart Function

In Previous clinical studies of CardiAmp Therapy have been promising and have shown improvements in patients' quality of life and heart function. The CardiAMP investigational therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for ischemic heart failure which occurs after a heart attack. The therapy includes a pre-procedure screening test. A small bone marrow sample is taken and screened to identify patients with a higher likelihood of benefitting from the treatment.

Association Between Medical Cures And Modern Biomedical Devices For Better Bone Health

A research team is bringing together natural medical cures with modern biomedical devices in hopes of bringing about better health outcomes for people with bone diseases. In this first-ever effort, the team improved bone-growing capabilities on 3D-printed, ceramic bone scaffolds by 30-45 percent when coated with curcumin, a compound found in the spice, turmeric. The study was published in the journal Materials Today Chemistry.

New Findings In Space, Space Gene

A study found a new gene in space and termed as "space gene."  It turns out NASA’s statement of the obvious was fallout from a bad case of mangled science communication. It started with an attempt on the part of the space agency to drum up publicity for some ongoing research about how Scott Kelly’s year-long stint in space affected his physiology. It was an appealing story not only because he broke the record for long-duration space flight, but because scientists were able to compare samples of his blood, saliva, and urine with his twin brother’s “the perfect nature versus nurture study.

Markers Of Reproductive History Leads To Future Diabetes Risk

According to a study, researchers determined that reproductive markers associated with risk of diabetes in women with a body mass index (BMI) ≥25 kg/m². Female reproductive history has been inconsistently associated with risk of type 2 diabetes. They examined the prospective associations between aspects of a woman's reproductive history and incident diabetes. The study was published in Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism.

Men Takes Daily Aspirin Leads To The Risk Of Melanoma

A study examined that men who take once-daily aspirin have nearly double the risk of melanoma compared to men who are not exposed to daily aspirin. Women, however, do not have an increased risk in this large patient population. Given the widespread use of aspirin and the potential clinical impact of the link to melanoma, patients, and healthcare providers need to be aware of the possibility of increased risk for men. The study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Improved Recurrence Rates After Lumpectomy

Due to multimodal breast cancer therapies, 5-year local recurrence rates following lumpectomy have dropped significantly, making breast-conserving surgery (BCS) an option for more patients with breast cancer, say researchers.
