A study issued in the Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology has highlighted the use of mandibular bone for the expeditive human identification. As per the study, the ramus of the mandible gave high quantitative and qualitative yield of DNA with thick amplification band of the STR segment as compared to the body and angle of the mandible. Thus ramus of the mandible can be preferred over other sites for molecular forensic investigations.
According to a new study, researchers estimated an individual's peak blood pressure response during cardiopulmonary exercise testing and help doctors screen for hypertension and cardiovascular disease, may need to be revised. They found that peak systolic blood pressure, the first number of a blood pressure measurement that tracks the pressure in blood vessels when the heart beats, increased with age in both men and women up to age 60, after which there was a plateau.
A new study published in the journal PNAS reveals that, after a cerebral infarction, injuries in areas that control attention also cause motility problems. The authors propose to complement physiotherapy with another type of cognitive training, such as video games.
According to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine , Opioid medications, particularly long-acting or high-dose opioids, may increase the risk for serious infections , including invasive pneumonia, meningitis, and bacteremia
According to a study, physicians need to be aware of the limitations of knowledge and the possibility of wrong administration practices among caregivers of children. Remedial measures in this regard can reduce the risk of medication errors.
A new study estimates that young children are particularly vulnerable to otitis media (OM) which globally affects over 80% of children below the age of 3 years. Although there is convincing evidence for an association between environmental tobacco smoke exposure and Otitis media in children, the relationship with ambient air pollution is not clear.
Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute have discovered new information about how motor proteins called dyneins interact with another protein called dynactin to transport molecules to different parts of a cell.
A new study published in the Nature Communications has revealed that the data indicate that possession of antibody responses to a group of P. falciparum proteins increases the likelihood of antibody-mediated transmission inhibition.
In this study, researchers examined the analgesic effect and safety of the application of different doses of nalbuphine in patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) for patients undergoing subtotal gastrectomy. The incidence of gastric cancer in recent years has been increasing, and surgical resection remains the main treatment.
In this study, researchers estimated a new drug for analyzing function of proteins in disease and health. Antibodies made by camels, llamas and alpacas allow scientists to study the structure and function of proteins in disease and health. While valuable, the approach is time-consuming, costly and often unsuccessful. This study is published in the journal of Nature Structural and Molecular Biology.
In this study, researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a novel approach for deep brain stimulation. The new method utilizes upconversion nanoparticles developed by Professor Liu Xiaogang from the Department of Chemistry at NUS Faculty of Science to allow transfer of visible light deep into the brain to stimulate neural activities in a less-invasive manner.
