In the present study, researchers successfully detected subfamily 3 group C nuclear hormone receptors and the pharmacodynamic measurement of receptor occupancy by cognate drugs in vivo using PET imaging
According to a study, researcher suspected that Teledermatology for skin cancer is slightly more expensive than usual care, but it expedites time to clinical resolution. The study was published in JAMA Dermatology. The study using deidentified Australian health system data, store-and-forward teledermoscopy skin cancer referral was estimated to cost A$54.64 per person more than usual care but enabled clinical resolution to be achieved a mean of 26 days earlier.
A new study shows the significant impact that even a meal or two paid for by a pharmaceutical company can have on prescribing rates, despite a national decline of opioid prescribing rates.
In the current study, untargeted metabolomics research using liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) was performed to identify CAP-related metabolic signatures. The identified metabolites were evaluated in the validation cohort by targeted assays. The relationship between the identified metabolites and the clinical severity of CAP as well as the determining performance for severe CAP were then investigated.
The chronic pain experienced by a number of patients with diabetes has widely been assumed to originate from damage to blood vessels or to local tissue surrounding neurons caused by high blood-sugar levels. However, a new study reports that in fruit flies, this pain hypersensitivity results instead from disrupted insulin signaling in pain sensory neurons.

Effective intervention can reduce medication overuse in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF), the latest University of Tasmania research shows; it was Led by The Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre's Dr. Juanita Westbury.
A new study found that integrating two separate clinical risk score models helps clinicians more accurately assess the stroke risk of patients with Afib. The composite stroke decision tool studied by researchers from the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Salt Lake City combines the widely used CHA2DS2-VASc with the Intermountain Risk Scores (IMRS) to derive and validate new stroke prediction scores.
