According to this study, researchers estimated the concept of different anatomical axes for the proximal and distal parts of the femur; compare these axes in normally aligned subjects and to propose the clinical application of these axes. The anatomical axis of the femur is crucial for determining the correct alignment in corrective osteotomies of the knee, total knee arthroplasty (TKA), and retrograde and antegrade femoral intramedullary nailing (IMN).
A self-sustaining program that helps provide long-term protection for communities from dengue has been given the official go ahead in Sri Lanka.

A group of Brazilian scientists achieved promising results using compounds from the venom of the South American rattlesnake in combat of hepatitis C. The study findings were published in the PloS One and Scientific Reports
New research available in PLoS One provides evidence that postural instability in PD patients is influenced by the presence and level of anxiety. The also demonstrated that external attentional focus significantly improves postural control of PD patients, including those with high levels of anxiety.

The debate is over. Dietary protein supplements significantly improve muscle strength and size when taken by healthy adults who lift weights, a determination reached by McMaster scientists who analyzed dozens of research studies.
Researchers examined the study from the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey to quantify emergency department visits by patients aged 45 years and older with diabetes. The researchers found that in 2015 people with diabetes aged 45 years and older made an estimated 12 million emergency department visits, a rate of 92 per 1,000 persons.
A new approach tested by researchers at the University of Iowa shows that de-identified data from a "smart thermometer" connected to a mobile phone app can track flu activity in real time at both population and individual levels and the data can be used to significantly improve flu forecasting. The findings are published online in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.
