Researchers from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of examined the effectiveness of raising awareness of the infectious disease, rabies. Although Western Europe is free from rabies, it continues to pose a threat to animal and human health on the borders of Europe. Although such campaigns are often used, it is rare to assess the effectiveness of such campaigns, which is essential considering their cost and the time taken to undertake them.

A new study of mice with the rodent equivalent of metabolic syndrome has added to evidence that the intestinal microbiome, a "garden" of bacterial, viral and fungal genes. It plays a substantial role in the development of obesity and insulin resistance in mammals, including humans. The study published in Mucosal Immunology.
A study published in Cell Metabolism has revealed new details about how a carbohydrate-restricted diet improves metabolism, which could lead to improved treatments for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women could preprogram babies to grow into obese children and adults, according to a Keck School of Medicine of USC-led study, published in the journal Pediatric Obesity.
In this study, researchers observed that skin disease psoriasis is also effective at reducing aortic inflammation, a key marker of future risk of major cardiovascular events. Researchers wanted to know if the benefits of the drug go beyond clearing the skin.
A new ultrathin, elastic display that fits snugly on the skin can show the moving waveform of an electrocardiogram recorded by a breathable, on-skin electrode sensor. Combined with a wireless communication module, this integrated biomedical sensor system — called "skin electronics" — can transmit biometric data to the cloud.
In a new study reported in the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, investigators revealed that soluble lectin-like low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (sLOX-1) levels in pericardial fluid and urine samples obtained postmortem are useful markers of acute ischemic heart disease (IHD).
According to new study, researchers examined acne can have wider-ranging and longer-term effects than skin cancer. The new system for ranking skin diseases by injury they cause could shift research priorities and change the way dermatologists see their patients.
A study determines that the membrane protein phospholipid environment determines its structure and function. There are two types of membrane proteins inside the phospholipid environment. Hydrophilic (water-loving) are exposed on the membrane surface where they stably interact with the aqueous environment surrounding membranes, and hydrophobic (water-repelling) are exposed to the interior of membranes.
New research on why the influenza vaccine was only modestly effective in recent years shows that immune history with the flu influences a person's response to the vaccine.
According to a new study published in the BMJ Open, general practitioners (GPs) appear to over-rely on headache to identify giant cell arteritis (GCA) and marked geographical differences in management, with conflicting referral pathways and difficulties in accessing appropriate services exist in the UK.
The loss of bone mass and alteration in bone physiology during space flight are one of the major health risks for astronauts. Although the lack of weight bearing in microgravity is considered a risk factor for bone loss and possible osteoporosis, organisms living in space are also exposed to cosmic radiation and other environmental stress factors.
