The ability to assess the impact of radiation on malignant tumors during a course of radiotherapy could help improve its effectiveness for individual patients. Based on tumor response, physicians could modify the treatment regimen and the radiation field.

Imagine a pathogen that infects completely healthy people and can cause blindness in one day and flesh-eating infections, brain abscesses, and death in just a few days. Now imagine that this pathogen is also resistant to all antibiotics.
A study examined whether MBL deficiency was more frequently present in cases group of tubotympanic CSOM patients rather than healthy subjects. Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is a common public health problem worldwide and a major cause of hearing impairment, especially in developing countries. The role of Mannose-Binding Lectin (MBL), a component of innate immunity, in CSOM has not been studied.
Children whose mothers stick to healthy lifestyle practices are less likely to be obese than children of less healthy moms, researchers report.
A Waterford based research team have found that a nutritional supplement combination of carotenoids and trout oil may slow down Alzheimer’s disease. Positive results from taking this supplemental combination were shown at all levels of Alzheimer’s disease.
According to a study, researchers suggested that taking a multivitamin(MV) and mineral supplements do not prevent heart attacks, strokes or cardiovascular death. The study was published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.
A miniaturized fluorescence microscope makes it possible to observe changes in living cells in microgravity. Future observations of astronauts’ cells could tell scientists important information about how the body adapts to space. NASA reports International Space Station uses miniaturized Fluorescence Microscope to observe changes in Living Cells in Microgravity
An astronaut’s physiology changes during long-duration spaceflight because of the lack of gravity. Knowing the molecular basis of this cellular response to altered gravity is key for risk management, monitoring, and development of countermeasures for future long-term space exploration.
Imaging Live-Cell In Microgravity
Cellular adaptation to the microgravity environment can only be studied and understood in dynamic or live measurements. Live imaging experiments in space are a crucial contribution to the understanding of cellular adaptation to microgravity.
Scientists have gained a glimpse of how marks on our genes that could be linked to adverse health outcomes in later life behave differently in the first few days after conception, according to new research published in Science Advances
A new class of cancer treatments recruits the cells in our blood to fight tumors, using gene-editing tools to transform a type of white blood cell called T cell from an immune cell that usually targets bacterial or fungal infections into a living cancer drug.
For bacteria facing a dose of antibiotics, timing might be the key to evading destruction. In a series of experiments, Princeton researchers found that cells that repaired DNA damaged by antibiotics before resuming growth had a much better chance of surviving treatment.
According to a study, researchers examine that the U.S. military has reinvented trauma care, offering hope for changing approaches to health care. The study was published online in Health Affairs. Researchers write about the U.S. military's transformation of trauma care experienced over the past 17 years, which included more than 27 major innovations.
In the present study, researchers discussed women giving birth in Massachusetts found a higher level of opioid use disorder than have studies conducted in other states
