Researchers have estimated that a guide for managing such medical emergencies while onboard an airplane. Physicians have developed recommendations for managing in-flight medical emergencies for healthcare professionals. The study was published in the journal CMAJ.
Scientists have established a unique technique to map, on a scale of milliseconds, the elasticity of the components inside a cell. They use the vibrations of planet Earth to characterize its deep structure, scientists have discovered a way to use vibrations within cells to identify their mechanical properties. The study was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
A new study, published in the JAMA, has found that a combination of high doses of radiotherapy and hormonal therapy could improve the survival rate of men with aggressive prostate cancer. The findings also suggest that such a multimodal treatment approach has the best chance of preventing metastatic disease and improving overall long-term survival.
