In the research, scientists studied nine healthy human subjects twice—with and without a continuous infusion of 3-hydroxybutyrate–to define potential underlying mechanisms, assessed regionally by PET scan

After years of public health efforts, health care at the Los Angeles County Jail has significantly improved, and the facility now typically provides full access to treatment for inmates who have HIV—including medications that keep their disease in check.
According to a study, researcher determines that a dietary supplement taken to strengthen joints, i.e, Chondroitin sulfate. One particular mutation in the B-raf gene (V600E) can be found in about half of melanomas. Jing Chen, Ph.D. and colleagues found that chondroitin sulfate can boost growth by melanoma cells carrying the V600E mutation, but not other melanoma cells. The study was published in Molecular Cell.
In the present study, scientists have just discovered why babies need to move in the womb to develop healthy bones and joints
As a result of technical advancements over the last decade, sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SLED) has become an effective and safe treatment for critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs). Using unfractionated heparin, the circuit clotting rate could be significantly reduced to 17–26%. Thus, anticoagulation is essential for preventing the extracorporeal circuit clotting in SLED.
By mimicking the intricate visual system of a butterfly, researchers have created a camera that provides surgeons with both a traditional color image as well as a near-infrared image that makes fluorescently labeled cancerous cells visible even under bright surgical lighting.
The new camera is designed to help surgeons remove all the cancerous cells without damaging healthy tissue, making it less likely that cancer will spread and reducing the need for multiple surgeries.
A new study warns, even one night of lost sleep may cause the brain to fill with protein chunks that have long been linked to the development of Alzheimer's disease
The study is a groundbreaking research of the University of Otago which is showing potential to restore fertility in women suffering polycystic ovary syndrome
In the present study, investigators explained that part of the problem is that diabetes impairs the ability of kidney cells to consume the garbage they generate in the process of filtering more than 100 quarts of your blood daily, called autophagy
An international team of researchers has identified genetic links between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia, a rare disorder marked by deterioration in behavior and personality, language disturbances, and poor impulse control
According to the research, people living near oil and gas facilities along Colorado's Northern Front Range may be exposed to hazardous air pollutants, including carcinogens like benzene, that could pose health risks above levels deemed acceptable by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
