Nucleolar Size Of The Cell Reveals The Size Of Cell

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.

Ayushman Bharat: Game Changer In The Healthcare

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).

Association Of Poor Postoperative Recovery After Surgery

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."

Children With Type 1 Diabetes Experience "Honeymoon Phase" With Low LDL

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.

Astronauts Exposed To High Energy Radiation May Experience Cognitive Injury

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.

New Insights Of Human Brain Affected From Schizophrenia

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.

Individuals Electronic Health Records Showed In Emergency Contacts

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.
