Novel Haemodynamic Structures In The Human Glomerulus

The researcher has found that the microscopic structure of human kidney is different from what was previously known. The paper 'Novel Haemodynamic structures in the human glomerulus', published in American Journal of Physiology. The kidney is a key organ balancing blood and body chemistry through filtration and reabsorption. The control of blood flow and pressure through the kidney is crucial for maintaining this process.

Hepatitis Delta Virus: Genetically Humanized Mice Provide Potential Treatment Options

Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) causes the most aggressive form of viral hepatitis in humans, putting at least 20 million people worldwide at risk of developing liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.

Efforts to develop effective treatments against HDV have been hampered by the fact that laboratory mice are not susceptible to the virus. But, in a study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, researchers describe a genetically humanized mouse that can be persistently infected with HDV.

Relationship Between Muscle- Bone Is Key In Deep-Tissue Work

Bone immobilization how it is affected by the surrounding muscles and how it affects those muscles should be a consideration in any massage work. Bones are an integral part of what we do as massage therapists. Muscle mass and bone health are interconnected, according to research. As the old anatomy equation indicates, muscles move bones at joints.

Gonorrhea: Gender-Specific Signatures Identified

The World Health Organization estimates that 78 million people worldwide are infected with gonorrhea each year. Men with infections tend to have obvious symptoms while women are often asymptomatic or experience mild symptoms. In both men and women, the infection usually clears with antibiotic treatment.
