Researchers estimated the effects of intravenous dexmedetomidine during spinal anesthesia on hemodynamics, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, sedpain, and compared them with those of saline infusion. Postoperative hemodynamic measurements, oxygen saturation, sedation, pain scores were obtained.

In a study, published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers at the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP), revealed structural and dynamic differences between selective and non-selective ion channels.
Most people agree that getting a little exercise helps when dealing with stress. A new BYU study discovers exercise — particularly running — while under stress also helps protect your memory.
A new study published in the journal of Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, finds that running mitigates the negative impacts chronic stress has on the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory.
A new study, published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, demonstrate that a short duration of the drug donepezil — a drug used to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease — can reverse both structural and genetic damage that bouts of alcohol use causes in neurons, or nerve cells, in the young brain.
A new study has revealed that targeted exome sequencing defines novel and rare variants in complex blood group serology cases for a red blood cell reference laboratory setting.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Erleada (apalutamide) for the treatment of patients with prostate cancer that has not spread (non-metastatic), but that continues to grow despite treatment with hormone therapy (castration-resistant). This is the first FDA-approved treatment for non-metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer.
Chagas Disease (caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi) and strongyloidiasis (caused by the helminth S. stercoralis) are neglected tropical diseases that share a similar epidemiological burden and result in chronic infections with high morbidity and mortality.
According to Rice University bioengineer Gang Bao, researchers have successfully used gene editing to repair 20 to 40% of stem and progenitor cells taken from the peripheral blood of patients with sickle cell disease. The results were presented at the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Austin.
About one-quarter of all long-term care (LTC) residents are transferred to an emergency department (ED) every 6 months in Ontario, Canada. When residents are unable to describe their health issues, ED staff rely on LTC transfer reports to make informed decisions. Older adults use a greater proportion of emergency department (ED) services than other age groups. Those who live in long-term care (LTC) homes are among the highest users.
Enzymes are proteins that speed up or catalyze a reaction in living organisms. Bacteria can produce enzymes that make them resistant to antibiotics. A new study, to be presented at the Biophysical Society's 62nd Annual Meeting in San Francisco, explores how an enzyme changes and becomes antibiotic-resistant.
