Johns Hopkins researchers reported they had uncovered one of the most common genetic mutations in Parkinson's disease and the formation of fatty plaques in the brain which contributes to the destruction of motor neurons that characterize the disease
Genetic mutations linked to heart disease have been considered a leading cause of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), but a new study by Mayo Clinic, British and Danish researchers found they are to blame for far fewer SIDS deaths than previously thought
In the research, scientists uncovered the therapeutic benefits of genetically improving inhibitory interneuron, which can adequately control the activity of excitatory cells and restore brain rhythms by transplanting them into the brain of a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease,
A new study suggests the risk for occult gynecologic cancer in women who undergo hysterectomy or myomectomy for benign indications is low but not trivial, particularly in women older than 55 years
The larva of the sleeping chironomid, Polypedilum vanderplanki — a mosquito-like insect that inhabits semi-arid areas of Africa — is well known for being able to come back to life after being nearly completely desiccated, losing up to 97% of its body's water content. Now, researchers have discovered that a gene called heat shock factor — which is present in some form in nearly all living organisms on earth — has been coopted by the species to survive desiccation.
The National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health (ICMR-NIRRH) along with collaborative partners in India are in the process of developing guidelines for the prevention and management of infertility in the public health-care system.
To fill the gap in information on infertility related available services and management practices at different levels of public health system, this study was conducted to assess the availability and practices of prevention and management services for infertility in the district health-care system.
In addition, focus group discussions were also carried out to understand the perceptions of the community on various aspects of infertility. This paper pertains to health facility level findings on infertility prevention and management.
Dreams were realized, records were shattered, and memories were made in PyeongChang, South Korea, by the 244 members of the U.S. Olympic Team who competed in 15 disciplines across seven sports ranging from snowboarding to ice dancing to curling.
