Researchers assessed the roles of the nucleolus in major physiological functions including stress response, development, and aging. Over the past few years, researchers have been piecing together an unexpected link between aging and an organelle typically known as the cell's ribosome factory. The connections between the nucleolus and age-related pathways such as those associated with dietary restriction. The study was published in the journal Cell Biology.

More should be done to take care of the mental health of transgender people in the US; a new survey carried out in Colorado indicates. The survey results show that four in every ten respondents suffered from depression.
Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare J P Nadda, presided over a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony with four States – Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Union Territory of Chandigarh for implementing Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Swasthya Suraksha Mission (PMRSSM).
According to researchers, patients undergoing same-day surgery, low functional health literacy is associated with poorer postoperative recovery and lower health-related quality of life. "Patients in today's health care system are expected to take part and to be engaged in their own care," Dr. Maria Halleberg-Nyman of Orebro University and colleagues note. "Consequently, they have to be able to read and understand health instructions on how to manage their own recovery at home."
The present study aimed to compare concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) plus cetuximab (C) with CCRT alone in locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma(NPC)
According to a new study, researchers found that children with type 1 diabetes who experienced a partial clinical remission, or "honeymoon phase," had significantly lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol, five years after diagnosis. The honeymoon period is the brief period when some children with new onset type 1 diabetes are able to produce some insulin resulting in improved glucose control. The study was published in PLOS ONE.
In a new article published in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, Sofanne J. Ravensbergen of the University of Groningen, and colleagues, found that a scabies intervention program (SIP) was effective in reducing the severity of scabies when introduced to the newly arrived Eritrean and Ethiopian asylum seekers who volunteered to take part in the program.
A study aimed to assess whether behavior, glutamate receptor gene expression, and dendritic structure in the hippocampus are altered in mice after early exposure to 16O radiation in mice. Exposure to 16O significantly reduced the expression of Nr1 and GluR1 in the hippocampus and modulated spine morphology in the dentate gyrus and cornu Ammon 1 within the hippocampus. The pathogenesis of this injury is unknown but may involve glutamate receptors or modifications to the dendritic structure and/or dendritic spine density and morphology.
This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ultrasound-guided pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) for the intercostal nerves (ICNs) in the management of thoracic post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN)
Researchers showed that organs, other than the brain, also change at the onset of the disease. Schizophrenia is considered a disorder of the mind, influencing the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. Scientists have known for a long time that people with schizophrenia have much higher rates of physical illness compared with the general population, and this contributes to startlingly high rates of premature death. People with the disorder die 15 to 20 years earlier than the average person.
A researchers showed three major academic medical centers in New York City is showing that emergency contact information, which is included in individuals' electronic health records (EHRs), can be used to generate family trees. Those family trees in turn can be used to study heritability in hundreds of medical conditions. The study was published in the journal Cell.
According to a new study, researchers conducted that eating early in the daytime and fasting for the rest of the day improves blood sugar control, blood pressure, and oxidative stress, even when people don't change what they eat.
