NASA Scientists are learning there may be a reason why the human race will always remain on Earth and not colonize other planets. Because evolution has tailored our bodies to respond to specific conditions, our immune systems are not set up to work in space. The study was published in the journal Nature-Scientific Reports.

Besides increasing longevity, the ultimate goal of medical care is to improve patients' enjoyment of life, a concept akin to happiness. This study examined the determinants of happiness and quality of life (QoL) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
A majority of registered voters oppose recent efforts to scale back Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits and believe the government should be doing more to meet the needs of people facing food insecurity and other challenges, according to a new survey commissioned by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Center for a Livable Future (CLF).
The researcher described the experience of one pediatric intensive unit(PICU) in China. The past decade saw the achievement across the world, increasing private shares of medical costs. Payment schemes have not kept pace with the increased availability and demand. As a result, a substantial number of parents, in the face of financial constraints, choose to withdraw the medical care of children even when recovery is expected.
Arteries such as the aorta actively transport oxygenated blood, nutrients, and cells throughout the body to keep our tissues functioning normally. Damage to the arteries can result in life-threatening cardiovascular diseases.
The uniqueness of SUSU scientists' development consists in the fact that this device, unlike other analogous devices, allows involving all the joints of lower limb. Patented know-how can be applied not only for rehabilitation after serious injuries or teaching children with infantile cerebral palsy to walk but also for optimization of sportsmen' technique.
The study shows cancer had spread everywhere, from her colon to her spine, her liver, her adrenal glands and one of her lungs. Eventually, it penetrated her brain. No medication made the pain bearable. A woman who had been generous and good-humored turned into someone hardly recognizable to her loving family: paranoid, snarling, violent.
California’s aid-in-dying law, authorizing doctors to prescribe lethal drugs to certain terminally ill patients, was still two years from going into effect in 2016. But Ms. Martin did have one alternative to the agonizing death she feared: palliative sedation.
MRI-targeted biopsies pick up as many higher-grade tumors as do systematic biopsies during active surveillance (AS) for prostate cancer, according to results from the ASIST trial.
In 2016, funded by a $16 million grant from Scythian, the multidisciplinary Miller School team embarked on a five-year study to examine the effects of combining CBD (a cannabinoid derivative of hemp) with an NMDA antagonist (an anesthetic used in animals and humans) for the treatment of traumatic brain injury and concussion. The researchers believed the combination could reduce post-injury brain cell inflammation, headache, pain and other symptoms associated with concussion.
A study reveals that the local anesthetic drug, liposomal bupivacaine, did not reduce in-hospital opioid prescriptions or opioid-related complications in patients who received the drug during total knee replacement surgery as part of a multimodal approach to managing postsurgical pain. The study was published in Anesthesiology, the peer-reviewed medical journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA).
