The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced that it has warned nine online networks, operating a total of 53 websites, that they must stop illegally marketing potentially dangerous, unapproved and misbranded versions of opioid medications, including tramadol and oxycodone. Companies who fail to correct the violations, as outlined in the warning letters, may be subject to enforcement action, including product seizure or injunction.
When the blood supply is low, cancer cells can use lipid molecules as fuel instead of blood glucose. This has been shown in animal tumor models by researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, in a study published in Cell Metabolism. The mechanism may explain why tumors often develop resistance to cancer drugs that inhibit the formation of blood vessels
Being a foster carer for children who have experienced early life trauma such as emotional and physical violence can be challenging, complex and confusing. For children, experiencing severe early trauma can manifest in difficult behaviours, resulting in unsuccessful foster care placements.
Marine-derived actinomycetes, with their extreme living environment featuring low temperatures and poor nutrient availability, are considered to have great potential to generate structurally novel and biologically active secondary metabolites.
The research identified differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and associated biological processes between Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Osteo arthritis (OA) using a bioinformatics approach to elucidate their potential pathogenesis
According to a study, researchers determine parents have been reading and sharing alarming reports of children who died or nearly died due to "dry drowning" over the past year. However, the use of that incorrect, nonmedical term has contributed to confusion about the true dangers of drowning in children and led to serious and fatal conditions being ignored after a "dry drowning" diagnosis was made. The study was published in Emergency Medicine News.
Adding methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), also known as ecstasy, to intensive psychotherapy appears to relieve posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), regardless of the cause, pooled data from six phase 2 studies show.
Researchers developed Insulin requirements change along with the stages of life childhood, puberty, young adulthood, and beyond. Managing type 1diabetes during the first two decades of life is challenging. The study has been published online by Diabetic Medicine.
Bed nets coated with a long-lasting chemical – called piperonyl butoxide (PBO) – combined with pyrethroid insecticide reduced the prevalence of malaria in children by 44% over one year, and 33% over two years, compared to the bed nets currently used, according to a randomized controlled trial published in The Lancet. Based on this evidence, the WHO recommends increasing coverage of PBO bed nets in areas where resistance to pyrethroids is developing.
