The surgeon's role in the opioid crisis will be underscored at the upcoming American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2018 Annual Meeting. And budding problems with misuse of biologics will also be debated.
A new study assesses and researchers found to manage patients who are at a high risk of developing hypoglycemia, or episodes of dangerously low blood sugar. They examined available resources for managing hypoglycemia and opportunities to incorporate better management strategies in clinical practice. The study has published in the journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Ranibizumab 0.5 mg is safe and effective for patients with macular edema (ME) that is not due to diabetes, retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), according to findings from the PROMETHEUS randomized trial.
New research reveals details of the mechanism by which the bacterium Wolbachia blocks viruses in mosquito cells, suggesting that it reduces viral replication inside cells and that rapid degradation of viral RNA is involved. Professor Scott O'Neill, Program Director of the World Mosquito Program, led by Australia's Monash University, and colleagues report their findings in PLOS Pathogens.
In this study, the human heart cells can divide and multiply, allowing the heart to grow and develop. The problem is that, right after birth, cardiomyocytes their ability to divide. The same is true for many other human cells, including those of the brain, spinal cord, and pancreas. The study has published in the journal Cell.
Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) can infinitely self-renew and develop into all major cell types in the body, making them important for organ repair and replacement. But culturing them in large quantities can be expensive. Now researchers have developed a more cost-effective culture by using a new combination of chemical compounds.
New compounds targeting epigenetics have shown remarkable early activity in patients with lymphoma, according to data presented at the TAT (Targeted Anticancer Therapies) International Congress 2018 in Paris, France. ESMO's phase-I oncology meeting featured early clinical studies with BET inhibitors and EZH2 inhibitors.
L-Carnitine possesses anti-inflammatory properties. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of L-carnitine supplementation on serum inflammatory markers. Body mass and composition, as well as knee extensor and flexor muscle strength, were determined.
Inviting men with no symptoms to a one-off PSA test for prostate cancer does not save lives according to results from the largest-ever prostate cancer trial conducted over 10 years by Cancer Research UK-funded scientists and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
In this study, researchers suggested that nonsurgical treatment is better recovery treatment in-universe than surgery. For complete facial nerve paralysis associated with undisplaced temporal bone fracture. The study has published in Head and Neck Surgery.
Synovial gene expression and histology were used to distinguish between various subtypes of rheumatoid arthritis. Machine-learning techniques were followed to analyze clinical, histologic, and gene-expression data from 123 patients.
