Simple Physical Models For Complex Protein Machines

Artificial protein like structures with machine properties could be moreover designed by running a computer evolution of elastic networks. The living cell can be viewed as a factory where protein machines are in charge of various processes; such as transport of material inside the cell or operations with other macromolecules like DNA. The complexity of…

Medical Intensive Care Unit Mitigate Burnout Among Physicians

Shortening the length of rotations in a medical intensive care unit (MICU) from the traditional 14-consecutive day schedule to only seven days helps mitigate burnout among critical care physicians, according to a new Penn Medicine pilot study. The study, published today in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine; so is the first to validate…

BlooDe Device Helps Study Plugging Capacity of Platelets

Various diseases can cause hemorrhages or thromboses, sometimes fatal, resulting in particular from complications during surgery. This may take the form of a dysfunction of the platelets (hemostasis), the blood cells the role of which is to plug the holes in the damaged blood vessels. Researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE); the University of…

Physical Evidence In The Brain For Types Of Schizophrenia

In a study using brain tissue from deceased human donors, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers say they found new evidence that schizophrenia can be marked by the buildup of abnormal proteins similar to those found in the brains of people with such neurodegenerative disorders as Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s diseases. Schizophrenia the specific cause of which remains…

Antigenic Diversity To Generate Persistent Strain Structure

Antigenic Diversity To Generate Persistent Strain Structure

The dynamic arms race between hosts; and pathogens sets the stage for a selective advantage of rare variants; that confer either immune protection to hosts or immune escape to pathogens and a corresponding disadvantage of common ones. This frequency dependent effect can act as a form of balancing selection and is a powerful force promoting…

Treatment Assessment of Tuberculosis Achieved with PET/CT

The researches find that the 18F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) can evaluate tuberculosis at the molecular level, effectively identifying diseased areas and guiding treatment for patients. According to the World Health Association, tuberculosis is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. Although the disease is curable and preventable; in areas with high…
