Researchers have found that repeating patterns of bone minerals go deeper and smaller than previously thought. Bone is mostly made of the flexible protein collagen and the hard mineral apatite. The two elements are arranged in nested repeating patterns from the smaller to the larger scale, eventually influencing the overall structure of bone. The study was published in the journal Science.
Proton-beam therapy centers are proliferating around the world, despite remaining questions over what advantages it offers over conventional radiotherapy. It provides a high degree of precision, allowing an escalated radiation dose to be targeted directly on a tumor.
When experts compare the DNA left at a crime scene with the DNA of a suspect, they generate statistics that describe how closely those DNA samples match. These match statistics are reliable because they're based on rigorous scientific research.
However, that research only applies to DNA fingerprints, also called DNA profiles, that have been generated using current technology. Now, scientists have laid the statistical foundation for calculating match statistics when using Next Generation Sequencing, or NGS, which produces DNA profiles that can be more useful in solving some crimes.
A study determines that Dying To Know Day Exists To Get people talking and take action toward planning for the end of life. A NATIONAL day of action is encouraging Australians not to wait to talk about death. The Mid North Coast Local Health District is joining the conversation this Dying to Know Day on August 8.
A new study found that just a half-hour of hookah smoking resulted in the development of cardiovascular risk factors similar to what has been seen with traditional cigarette smoking. They found that in direct contradiction to marketing efforts claiming that hookah (water pipe) smoking is less hazardous to health than cigarettes. The study was published in the American Journal of Cardiology.
Accidental awareness (when a patient becomes conscious during a general anesthetic) is an incredibly important issue to both patients and anesthetists. Patients undergoing surgery can be assured that it is highly uncommon to wake up during a general anesthetic.
The largest ever research study (NAP5) performed on this topic was carried out in 2014 by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland. It showed that approximately one person in 20,000 reported awareness, and it most commonly occurred before surgery started or after it finished.
New research, published in Thorax, funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has shown that babies with cystic fibrosis (CF) are born weighing less than babies without the condition, even allowing that they are more likely to be born prematurely
Data which indicate a greater role of the central nervous system in the etiology of fibromyalgia are increasing. The goal of the present study is to determine the link between fibromyalgia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and, in addition, to reveal the relevance of impulsivity dimension.
