Ventilators: Most ICU Patients Infected

Ventilators may be intended to offer life support for critically-ill patients but they can also increase the risk of mortality by being carriers of multi-drug resistant bacteria, shows a study in seven leading tertiary care hospitals spread across the country.

To Determine the Variations of NSCs During Spaceflight

According to this study, researchers was thus to determine the variations of neural stem cells (NSCs) during spaceflight. RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) based transcriptomic profiling of NSCs identified many differentially expressed mRNAs and miRNAs between space and earth groups.  Numerous studies have demonstrated that spaceflight can affect many systems of the human body, such as the skeleton system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.

Viruses That Can Produce Insulin-Like Hormones That Are Active on Human Cells

According to this study, researchers identified four viruses that can produce insulin-like hormones that are active on human cells. Every cell in your body responds to the hormone insulin, and if that process starts to fail, they get diabetes. The discovery brings new possibilities for revealing biological mechanisms that may cause diabetes or cancer. The study published in the journal PNAS.
