In the past four years, the Narendra Modi government has attempted to transform the healthcare landscape of India. While some of these efforts gained pace, others faced challenges.
Researchers used a computational method to redesign aspartase and convert it to a catalyst for asymmetric hydroamination reactions. Their colleagues in China scaled up the production of this enzyme and managed to produce kilograms of very pure building blocks for pharmaceuticals and other bioactive compounds. They used a computational method to redesign aspartase and convert it to a catalyst for asymmetric hydroamination reactions. The study was published in Nature Chemical Biology.
Breast cancer survivors are not getting the recommended level of screening, post-surgery, according to a newly-published study in JNCCN, Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
According to a new study, researchers estimated one out of every three U.S. adults has high blood pressure that should be treated with medication, under guidelines recently adopted by the two leading heart health associations. The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association redefined high blood pressure, based on new evidence supporting a lower threshold. The new study was published in JAMA Cardiology.
Not only is routine computed tomography (CT) to check for recurrence after evacuation surgery for chronic subdural hematoma unnecessary, but patients scanned on an as-needed basis experience better outcomes, a new perspective, randomized study suggests.
Recording the causes of mortality and using that data to drive public health interventions like drug and vaccine procurement, running screening and awareness campaigns, and providing secondary and tertiary care under health insurance schemes can help public health achieve better outcomes.
Researchers found a rare genetic disorder in which people are suddenly overcome with profound muscle weakness is caused by a hole in a membrane protein that allows sodium ions to leak across cell membranes. A hole in a protein lets ions leaks into cells, thereby triggering the profound muscle weakness of hypokalemic periodic paralysis. The study was published in the journal Nature.
Implementing a verification simulation, or “dry run,” before a scheduled radiotherapy session could minimize possible errors and patient anxiety in the radiology suite, according to recent research out of Pittsburgh.
A new environmental monitoring project at Indiana University has found increased numbers of the ticks that carry Lyme disease in Southern Indiana. The organisms, deer ticks, are not yet confirmed to carry Lyme disease. However, IU researchers said the presence of a known disease vector — like a deer tick — is commonly followed by a rise in the illness caused by the bacteria it carries.
Schizophrenia risk has been linked to urbanization, but the underlying mechanism remains unknown. Green space is hypothesized to positively influence mental health and might mediate risk of schizophrenia by mitigating noise and particle pollution exposure, stress relief, or other unknown mechanisms. People who grew up without green spaces are 50% more likely to develop schizophrenia compared with those who grew up surrounded by greenery. The study was published in the journal Schizophrenia Research.
