Examination Of Diabetes Healthcare Using CGM Data

A study examined that diabetes data management, today announced the results of its recent study which examined diabetes healthcare professionals' use of CGM data. The study asked 38 diabetes healthcare professionals (29 endocrinologists; nine diabetes educators) to assess CGM data from 10 people with type 1 diabetes within the Glooko platform. 

Call for Low-Cost Approach To Tackle Podoconiosis

Researchers at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) are asking governments in the developing world to adopt a low-cost, community-based approach to prevent acute attacks that occur in patients with a devastating neglected tropical disease.

A New Approach for Treating Mild Asthma

A large international study led by a Hamilton researcher has found a patient-centric treatment that works for people with mild asthma. People with mild asthma are often prescribed a daily treatment regimen, but up to 80% do not follow the routine, using inhalers only when they have an asthma attack.

Now the researchers have found an as-needed combined-drug inhaler is a viable treatment option. The study is published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM)

Molecule Of GABA Is The Neurotransmitter Activation In The Brain

Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. It is the control knob of all control knobs. It is so special about the molecule. To look at it, there is nothing inherently peculiar about the small four-carbon backbone structure of GABA. Solvation effects in solution allow GABA to take on five different possible conformations, some compact, and others more extended. At the receptor level, this flexibility means that GABA is a highly 'druggable' target.
