Brown Adipose Tissue Flexes Its Muscle to Burn Energy

The same kind of fat cells that help newborn babies regulate their body temperature could be a target for weight-loss drugs in adults, according to a study published online in the journal Cell Metabolism Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have discovered that brown fat cells, which help mammals regulate their body temperature, work much like muscle cells, the researchers discovered.

Benefit From An Emergency Procedure For Acute Ischemic Stroke

Researchers shown that far more people than previously thought can benefit from an emergency procedure for acute ischemic stroke. A 38-center clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The improved outcomes were achieved through the use of brain-imaging software developed at Stanford. Some patients showed dramatic improvement even when their brain clots were removed as long as 10 hours after the end of this six-hour window.

Coronaviruses Cause The Common Cold And Pneumonia

Researchers have examined RNA viruses called coronaviruses cause the common cold and pneumonia. In the last two decades or so, though, researchers have found that these viruses can jump between animal and human hosts. In recent years, coronaviruses have caused lethal outbreaks of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) that span multiple continents. The study have published in mBio.

Factors Associated With Postoperative Pain In Surgery With General Anesthesia

In this study, researchers assessed patient pain and discomfort following oculoplastic surgery performed under general anesthesia and to assess key factors associated with postoperative pain and discomfort. Postoperative pain may result in patient discomfort and may decrease patient satisfaction.  Postoperative pain is unacceptable, and increasing efforts have been directed toward pain awareness and pain management. Therefore, pain management is an important part of patient care after surgery.
