Detection Of AD Are The Concentrations Of Beta-Amyloid And Phosphorylated Tau

Researcher used biomarkers for the early detection of Alzheimer's disease (AD) are currently the concentrations of beta-amyloid and phosphorylated Tau in cerebrospinal fluid. However, it has been observed that not all individuals with alterations in these biomarkers develop the disease. In this regard, intense research efforts are being channeled into finding new biological markers that can provide information about the different stages of the disease and allow its early detection, and thus facilitate its management. The study was published in Analytical Chemistry. 

Determination Of MM and AD As Well As For NMSC and AD

In Previous studies, researchers have demonstrated a decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in individuals with various cancers, including non-melanoma skin cancers (including squamous cell cancers and basal cell cancers). Although literature demonstrates a decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in individuals with various cancers, including squamous cell cancers (SCC) and basal cell cancers (BCC) comprising non?melanoma skin cancers (NMSC), there is a paucity of literature to substantiate an association between malignant melanoma (MM) and AD. The study was published in Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology & Venereology. 

In Urgent Care, Emergency Rooms Are Needed

In the simplest of scenarios, if your condition seems severe and they are considering contacting emergency services, call 911 right away or head to your closest emergency department. When injury or sickness strikes, it can be hard to know where to go for proper care and treatment and if the situation is urgent enough to call 911.

An Outbreak Of Candida auris Linked To Multi-Use Thermometers In UK

According to a study, researchers examined one of the largest outbreaks of the emerging drug-resistant fungal pathogen C. auris. Outbreaks of the fungal pathogen Candida auris (C. auris) in healthcare settings, particularly in intensive care units (ICUs), may be linked to multi-use patient equipment, such as thermometers. The outbreak occurred in Oxford University Hospitals' Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the United Kingdom.

A New Tool To Protect Women From HIV Infection

In this study, researchers developed a new tool, which is to protect women from HIV transmission. The tool, a vaginal implant, decreases the number of cells that the HIV can target in a woman's genital tract. Unlike conventional methods of HIV prevention, such as condoms or anti-HIV drugs, the implant takes advantage of some people's natural immunity to the virus. The study was published in the Journal of Controlled Release.

Implanted Cardiac Defibrillators Obtained Via Online Message Board Is Accurate

According to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association's Quality of Care and Outcomes Research, a premier global exchange of the latest advances in quality of care and outcomes research in cardiovascular disease and stroke for researchers, healthcare professionals and policymakers. Medical advice about implanted cardiac defibrillators obtained via an online message board appears to be accurate only half of the time.
