Experimental Dental Adhesive Resin Containing Modified Nano scale

This study determining the developing of an experimental dental adhesive resin containing modified nano scale titanium dioxide particles. researcher studying samples of the adhesive resin using small-angle neutron scattering at ORNL’s High Flux Isotope Reactor to determine the optimal shape, modifications, and dispersion for the particles. As the bacteria form bio films; where they metabolize…

Fucoxanthin

Marine Carotenoid Fucoxanthin Possesses Anti-Metastasis Activity

Fucoxanthin is commonly finding in marine organisms; however, to date, it has been one of the scarcely explored natural compounds. The researchers investigated its activities in human cancer cell culture-based viability, migration, and molecular assays; and found that it possesses strong anticancer; and anti-metastatic activities that work irrespective of the p53 status of cancer cells.…

Physical Stress Driving The Effects Of Posture On Taste Evaluations

Physical Stress Driving The Effects Of Posture On Taste Evaluations

This study involving the underlying mechanism related to physical stress driving the effects of posture on taste evaluations; with human subjects has also shown that physical stress decreases sensory sensitivity;researcher stating that holding a standing posture for even a few minutes prompts physical stress; muting taste buds. This research focuses specifically on standing versus sitting…

Heart Failure

Heart Failure Patients, Novel Therapeutic Approach

Heart Failure, results from a first-in-man proof of concept study find occlusion of the superior vena cava (SVC) rapidly and effectively reduces pressure and volume in the heart. This is the first study targeting the SVC as a therapeutic area for heart failure patients to reduce cardiac filling pressures without reducing cardiac output or systemic…

Fetal Bone Growth Will Heal Bone Defects By Replicating

Fetal bone growth process, To treat large gaps in long bones, like the femur, which result from bone tumor removal or a shattering trauma, researchers at Penn Medicine and the University of Illinois at Chicago develop a process that partially recreates the bone growth process that occurs before birth. A bone defect of more than…

Kidney Transplant

The Relation Between Donor Renal Biopsy And Kidney Transplant Survival

Kidney transplantation is now the best choice for the survival of patients with end-stage renal disease. (ESRD). This therapy exhibits a good cost/benefit ratio and can elevate the survival and quality of life of patients with ESRD. A crucial factor to be consider before kidney transplantation from a decease donor is kidney biopsy of the…

Brexanolone: FDA Approves First Drug For Postpartum Depression

“Postpartum depression is a serious condition that, when severe, can be life-threatening,” said FDA’s Dr. Tiffany Farchione. Women may experience thoughts about harming themselves or harming their child. The condition “can also interfere with the maternal-infant bond,” added Farchione; who is acting director of the Division of Psychiatry Products in the agency’s Center for Drug…

Fabricate Nanometer Sized Drug Delivery Vehicles

Fabricate Nanometer Sized Drug Delivery Vehicles

By developing a path to fabricate nanometer sized drug delivery vehicles that can simultaneously deliver multiple drugs more efficiently that current methods. The system suppressed breast tumors in mice by 87 and 94 percent; using very low dosages of drugs that previously were only deliverable orally. The development of multi functional nano vehicles with enhanced…
