Protein kinases regulate nearly all processes in cells. If the function of these enzymes is disrupted, often cancer will develop. In particular certain types of deregulated mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are believed to be the cause of various types of cancer.

In an "always on" society, where they carry mini computers in our pockets at all times that are capable of solving nearly any problem or desire with a tap, pinch, or click they cannot seem to escape the ever-increasing role that computer technologies play in our lives. They examine the social and psychological toll of our increasingly online lives on work, education, family life, interactions, our sense of self, and more.
"A large part of my research is thinking about how bacteria communicate," says Sophie Darch. The postdoctoral researcher works with School of Biological Sciences Professor Marvin Whiteley, studying the social lives of bacteria.
Researchers evaluated the impact of the organisation and delivery of different models of HAH on patient and carer outcomes and experiences of end-of-life care from the perspective of service users, their family carers, service providers and commissioners. Hospice at home (HAH) services aim to enable patients to be cared for and die in their place of choice, if that is at home, and to achieve a 'good death'.

It is going to be the NDA health flagship in an election year but the credits for the National Health Protection Mission (NHPM) will have to be shared with the states.
A new blood test for pregnant women detects with 75-80 percent accuracy whether their pregnancies will end in premature birth. The technique can also be used to estimate a fetus's gestational age—or the mother's due date—as reliably as and less expensively than ultrasound
A study examine the clinical efficacy of immediate reduction under general anesthesia and combined anterior and posterior fusion in the treatment of distraction-flexion injury in the lower cervical spine. Distraction-flexion of the lower cervical spine is a severe traumatic lesion, frequently resulting in paralysis. The optimal surgical treatment is controversial. It has been a challenge for orthopedic surgeons to manage distraction-flexion injury in the lower cervical spine while avoiding the risk of iatrogenic damage.
Logically, it would seem that more follow-up testing of cancer patients must be better than less, but this is not the case for patients who undergo surgery for colorectal cancer. The results have just been published in the scientific journal JAMA.
A set of three nearly identical genes found only in humans appear to play a critical role in the development of our large brains, according to a study led by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz
A study estimated that the effect of NOD on correlations between nasal and synonasal symptoms with clinical assessments of asthma control, 82 children, 9.8 [8.9; 10.7] years old, with atopic BA were assessed using ACQ-5 for the BA control level, TNSS for nasal symptoms, and SNOT-20 for synonasal quality of life in combination with rhinovideoendoscopy for NOD.
University Radiology Group has taken patient engagement to the next level by using RoyalPay, a web-based, payments engine, allows clients to eliminate manual eligibility verification, and complex payment calculations and increasing time-of-service payments.
