Researchers examined the shape of heterochromatin, a type of chromatin, which consists of tightly packed DNA and proteins. Wireless headphones, two yo-yos connected by a string, earmuffs: all these items could be used to describe a tiny structure inside a cell's nucleus. They have been able to define its structure thanks to new, high-contrast imaging in cryo-electron microscopy. The study has published in the journal Molecular Cell.

In this study, researchers identified that improvements in quality of life are better when patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria take omalizumab for 48 weeks instead of 24 weeks. This study is one of the largest to look at "the effects of any treatment on patient-reported outcomes, especially the things we think are very important for patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria, such as insomnia.

Research led by The University of Notre Dame Australia, NICM, and Western Sydney University, shows antenatal education not only reduces the rates of medical interventions during childbirth but can save the healthcare system up to AU$97 million per year.
A new study estimated that chaperones can also maintain proteins in non-equilibrium states, potentially altering their fate. Chaperones are specialized proteins in the cell that help other proteins to reach their functional 3D shapes, which correspond to the states preferred at thermodynamic equilibrium. The study has published in Nature Chemical Biology.
Researchers have estimated and come up with a five-subgroup classification for diabetes to differentiate between their risks and related complications. Diabetes classification has been typically restricted to three types until now types 1 and 2 and gestational diabetes. The study has published in the Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.
Researchers have developed a gene therapy that successfully treats a form of macular degeneration in a canine model. The work sets the stage for translating the findings into a human therapy for an inherited disease that results in a progressive loss of central vision and which is currently untreatable. The study is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
A new study, led by Dr. Deepthi Sharan Thatparti at Sentrywell technologies , investigate alternate ventilation systems design for evaluating and improving healthcare workers ' health and safety in Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms. The research on infectious diseases prevention and control could help healthcare workers live better lives.
The confirmation involved one single patient; Brazilian investigators say it suggests the virus may be contagious for a period which stretches longer than previously thought. Scientists especulate whether the use of urine samples could allow for positive diagnosis in asymptomatic patients, who comprise half of the cases of yellow fever's infection.
