According to this study, researchers described about the S-point and report cases of severe epistaxis originating from it. As the introduction of nasal endoscopy into the field of Otorhinolaryngology, the treatment paradigm for cases of severe epistaxis has shifted toward early and precise identification of the bleeding site.

The type of exercise that children get in school does make a difference. This is shown by a major Danish study from researchers at the University of Southern Denmark and University of Copenhagen. Eight to ten-year-old schoolchildren develop stronger bones, increased muscular strength and improved balance when ball games or circuit training are on the timetable.
The level of trust a man has in his physician is "strongly associated" with the decision of whether to undergo prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening, according to a new study of US attitudes and behaviors presented here at the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (GUCS) 2018.
By looking at malaria infections and hookworms as competitors battling over a key resource — red blood cells — ecologists were able to explain why co-infected patients often got sicker after being dewormed: without the hookworms to keep it in check, the malaria infection ran rampant.
In the paper published in journal Nature Communications, researchers demonstrated the design and synthesis of a smart globular macromolecular machine vehicle for actively controlled cancer drug delivery, which would enhance the drug's efficacy. This breakthrough gives insight to targeted therapy drugs such as Chlorambucil in the treatment of leukaemia.
In the largest study to date on children in a low/ middle-income country, new research in Ghana finds that the timing of a measles vaccine in an overall vaccination schedule can have a profound impact on child survival rates beyond protecting against measles infection. The findings, published in open access journal Frontiers in Public Health, suggest that measles vaccination in the recommended sequence may have made an important contribution towards achieving the Millennium Development Goal 4 of reducing child mortality.
The study led by Professors Sue Kimber and Adrian Woolf from The University of Manchester, signifies a significant milestone in the development of treatment for kidney disease . The study was published in the journal Stem Cell Reports .
A new study, published in the American Journal of Pathology, confirms that losartan is effective in treating Marfan syndrome, but the underlying mechanism of action is different than previously thought, which opens up new possibilities for improvements in Marfan syndrome management.
According to this study, researchers proposed that swarms of flies can be used to help monitor disease outbreaks. This follows their research that shows how whole communities of bacteria known as a microbiome. This bacterium can "hitch a ride" on common carrion flies and can be transferred to any surface where the flies land. The study is published in Scientific Reports.
Creating an artificial implantable kidney would be an epic advance in medicine and could address a chronic shortage of donor kidneys needed for transplant. Researchers have been at this quest for the past 15 years and keep coming upon one extremely knotty problem: how to keep the blood flowing smoothly through the artificial device without clotting. In such devices, as blood platelets respond to mechanical forces, they have a natural tendency to clot, causing a device malfunction.
Inhibiting HDAC6 improves the structural stability of cells and protects against neuronal damage. Leuven research uncovered that targeting this mechanism could be a promising therapeutic approach for peripheral neuropathies, whether due to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) or as a side effect of chemotherapy.
According to a new study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, commonly used antidepressant medications (ADMs) were not associated with incident hypertension after controlling for other factors associated with ADM use and hypertension. Research on potential dose and duration effects is warranted.
