In patients with heart failure (HF), depression and anxiety disorders are common and associated with adverse outcomes such as reduced adherence to treatment, poor function, increased hospitalizations, and elevated mortality. Despite the adverse impact of these disorders, anxiety, and depression remain underdiagnosed and undertreated in HF patients.
Derived from nature, a potential new drug to treat two life-threatening tropical diseases has been discovered as a result of collaboration between two Welsh universities. The team of researchers, led by Professor Andrew Westwell from Cardiff University, has successfully created a drug compound, from the goji berry plant, that is active against the parasites that cause schistosomiasis and fascioliasis.
Advanced algorithms working from large chemical databases can predict a new chemical's toxicity better than standard animal tests, suggests a study led by scientists at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Over 70% of people with Down syndrome (DS) – many more than previously thought – may have corneas similar in morphology to the corneas of people with keratoconus, a new study reports
Researchers conducted a new study, short, but not long, weekend sleep was associated with an increased risk of early death in individuals under 65 years of age. In the same age group, either short sleep or long sleep on both weekdays and weekends showed increased mortality when compared with consistently sleeping 6-7 hours per day. The study was published in the Journal of Sleep Research.
Normal scar tissue forms to heal an internal wound and quietly retreats when the job is done. But in many common diseases – kidney, liver and lung fibrosis — the scar tissue goes rogue and strangles vital organs. These diseases are largely untreatable and ultimately fatal. A new Northwestern Medicine study has newly identified a trigger of some fibrotic diseases and an experimental compound to treat it.

In an unexpected discovery, UCLA researchers have found that a gene is previously known to control human metabolism also controls the equilibrium of bone and fat in bone marrow as well as how an adult stem cell expresses its final cell type.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation increases the possibility of surviving sudden cardiac arrest. But it's not just trained professionals who can jump in to perform CPR. There are simple, life-saving steps any bystander can take. Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops beating. Some 350,000 cases occur each year outside of a hospital, and the survival rate is less than 12 percent. CPR can double or triple the chances of survival.
Viruses known as gammaherpesviruses may raise the risk of cancer in macaques infected with Simian Immunodeficiency Virus or Simian Human Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV/SHIV), according to new research published by Vickie Marshall of the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, Maryland, and colleagues.
Typical reflux symptoms in children should be treated with 4-8 weeks of acid-suppression therapy, and in infants, this should occur only after dietary modifications, according to a new Pediatric Gastroesophageal Reflux Clinical Practice Guideline.
