Researchers from Charité — Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin's university hospital, have discovered a new mechanism by which live vaccines induce immunity.
Molecules produced exclusively by live microorganisms are recognized by specialized receptors of the immune system, subsequently triggering a protective immune response. The new findings may help improve the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Results from this study have been published in the journal Nature Immunology.
Researchers from Karolinska Institutet have found unexpected anti-inflammatory effects in PCSK9 inhibitors that is known to reduce LDL cholesterol levels.
Researchers developed a camera that concentrated beneath the skin to help diagnose and monitor a wide variety of health conditions. The interdisciplinary effort, led by Rice University, will combine advanced optics and sophisticated computation to make sense of light that penetrates the skin but scatters off internal tissues and anatomical structures. This will enable noninvasive bio-optical imaging at a cellular scale something not possible with ultrasound, X-rays and other medical imaging technologies.
Researchers have speculated that raising eyebrows and other facial expressions evolved as the shape and structure of the face of men changed with time making them smaller and flatter. Early Homo sapiens had thick bone brows; this made raising eyebrows and a host of other facial expressions difficult for them. With the passage of time evolution took its course and the brows smoothened. The study was published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution.
A new study from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), explores little-known fungal infections caused by the fungus Cryptococcus. There are currently no vaccines available for any fungal infection, which can be extremely fatal to patients under therapy for diseases like HIV, AIDS and cancer. Researchers suggest that more studies are required to develop an effective solution to these infections.
According to a study, researchers examined that a patients mucus may predict the type of his or her chronic sinusitis, which could help doctors determine whether surgery or medical treatments can produce the best outcomes. They have experienced high pollen levels while the weather and temperatures continue to fluctuate, aggravating sinus symptoms. Justin Turner, MD, Ph.D., associate professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
A study determined the successful growth and study gut bacteria in the lab. They report on the nutritional preferences and growth characteristics of 96 diverse gut bacterial strains. Their results will help scientists worldwide advance our understanding of the gut microbiome.
A New York agency that supports end-of-life has approved a new document allowing patients to record in advance that they want to stop eating and drinking if they develop severe dementia. Approved by End Of Life Choices New York's board in late March, the advanced directive would provide patients a way of speeding death once they are ravaged by the symptoms of late-stage dementia.
Within the past decade, many developments have been made in the 3-D market from printing to films. A group of American scientists reported that by coupling a robotic arm and mass spectrometry, they can analyze the surface of irregularly formed 3-D objects.
The study finding, published in the journal Analytical Chemistry, potentially opening up new branches of forensics and pharmaceutics.
The study has shown that thigh, hip and buttocks fat might protect against heart disease, a new study says losing fat in those areas is linked to better cardiovascular health. They showed fat in the thighs, hips, and backside could help reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. The study was published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
Researchers have found a way to identify infants who will go on to develop type 1 diabetes. UQ Diamantina Institute researcher Professor Ranjeny Thomas said the discovery would lead to the development of better screening tests to identify children at highest risk. "Once they have two antibodies, it's highly likely they will go on to develop type 1 diabetes. The study was published in JCI Insight.
