Nanoparticles Show Potential for PET/MRI Bimodal Imaging

Study find that nanoparticles (NPs) using multi modal PET/MRI showed promising improvements in imaging capabilities. Using an MR Solutions; cryogen free, 3T scanner with a PET clip on the sequential images are find to be highly beneficial providing high spatial resolution, high sensitivity; high technical maturity with a low radiation dose. This pioneering agent highlights…

Athletes Experience Most Common Form Of Maltreatment

Athletes experience the most common treatment of maltreatment which is psychological abuse, follow by neglect, a new study from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education has find. The findings are the result of a survey to determine the prevalence of maltreatment among current and former national team athletes, conduct in partnership…

Innovative Protein Aids Memory And Learning Ability

Impeding VCAM1, a protein that tethers circulating immune cells to blood vessel walls; enabled old mice to perform as well on memory and learning tests as young mice, a Stanford study found. Mice are not people, but like us they become forgetful in old age. In a study published online May 13 in Nature Medicine,…

Homology Domain Blocks the Growth of Mutation

mutated form earning its reputation as “undruggable.” Yet; the hunt for an Achilles’ heel continues, as cancers driven by KRAS mutations are both common and deadly. Because Scientists from Sanford Burnham Prebys and PHusis Therapeutics have shown that a compound called PHT-7.3 shrinks KRAS-driven tumors in mice. Therefore In contrast to directly targeting mutant KRAS;…

Light, Incremental Physical Activity Can Help To Reduce Brain Aging

Incremental physical activity (PA), even of light intensity, is associate with larger brain volume and healthy brain aging, according to a study published online April 19 in JAMA Network Open. However, further work is need to pinpoint the optimal dosage (duration × intensity) of PA need to promote healthy brain aging. Favorable brain structure Although this question…

Personalized Treatment Of Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Researchers have developed a method that could drastically accelerate the search for new drugs to treat mental health disorders such as schizophrenia. Mental health disorders are the leading cause of disability worldwide; accounting for 31% of total years lived with disability. While our understanding of the biology behind these disorders has increased; no new neuropsychiatric…

Chemotherapy For Cancerous Cells, Anti-Cancer Drugs

The researches find that chemotherapy can be very efficient in eliminating cancerous cells; therefore anti-cancer drugs affect normal, healthy cells. Damage to healthy cells causes side effects. In order to avoid the undesirable side effects of the cancer medication, the investigation of synthetic peptides, which is  use as active ingredients in the medication; is very…

Blood Clots May Be The Latest Risk From 'Bad' Cholesterol

The researcher find that blood clots may be the latest risk, therefore presented Tuesday at the American Heart Association’s Vascular Discovery Scientific Sessions; Because looked at genes and proteins that might influence venous thromboembolism; or VTE, a condition that causes potentially dangerous blood clots to form in the legs or arms that can break free and…

Antibiotic

Overuse Of Antibiotics Leads To Killer Bacteria

The World Health Organisation and researchers in developed world have long warned that “superbugs” are spreading rapidly due to the particularly high use of antibiotics in intensive care units, where patients are sickest and strong drugs are prescribed as routine. And the latest data and analysis of Department of Microbiology and Immunology (DMI) at Bangabandhu…

Neurofibrillary tangles

Tauopathy Process Leading To Brain Cell Death

The two primary hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease are clumps of sticky amyloid-beta (Aβ); protein fragments known as amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of a protein called tau. Abnormal accumulations of both proteins are needed to drive the death of brain cells, or neurons. But scientists still have a lot to learn about how amyloid impacts…

Microbes: Contribute To Metabolic Changes During Pregnancy

The possible existence of unseen microbial life from ancient times; such as in Jain scriptures from the 6th century BC India and the 1st century BC book. Microbiology; the scientific study of microorganisms, began with their observation under the microscope in the 1670s by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek. In the 1850s, Louis Pasteur found that microorganisms caused food spoilage; debunking the theory of spontaneous generation. Metabolism…
