Antibiotic-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infections, one of the most common hospital-acquired infections in children across the United States, are on the rise, according to results of a recent study published in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society
A new study evaluated that researchers showed that nitric oxide might help commonly used heart drugs maximize their benefits while improving heart function. The most common heart medications may get an assist from nitric oxide circulating in the body. Researchers showed that nitric oxide may help commonly used heart drugs maximize their benefits while improving heart function. In turn, the study found nitric oxide deficiencies could underlie heart failure while tilting drug effects toward more harmful pathways and side effects. The study was published in Molecular Cell.
Ascidians (urochordates, tunicates), commonly known as sea-squirts, belong to the Phylum, Chordata; sub-phylum; Tunicata; class, Ascidiacea. Ascidians are benthic filter-feeding proto-chordates ancestral to the higher chordates.
The research team has combined technologies to develop a new biotech technique that promises to accelerate research into protein therapies. A Northwestern-led synthetic biology research team has combined technologies to develop a new biotech technique that promises to accelerate research into protein therapies that could one day become the next defense against antibiotic-resistant super germs or the next new drug. The study was published in the journal Nature Chemical Biology.
In the United States, the continuing controversy over the best age to start screening mammography has put women younger than 50 years at significantly increased risk for delayed diagnosis, which leads to more extensive and costly treatment.
Sperm cells have a unique shape that allows them to travel. During fertilization, sperm pass through several physiological environments while still maintaining their shape, using poorly understood mechanisms. Researchers found that male mice lacking cysteine dioxygenase, a protein involved in taurine production, have severely impaired fertility, and that taurine production allows sperm cells to maintain their shape in response to changing water levels in their environment.
A new study has examined that the body clock processes within the body are influenced by night-time light. There are of significant importance to people who suffer from a lack of quality sleep (night shift workers etc) and may help treat depression. The study was published in The Journal of Physiology.
A new BJS(British Journal of Surgery) study found that patients who are not at high risk of rectal cancer recurrence can safely undergo surgery without chemoradiotherapy. It is unclear if all patients with advanced rectal cancer need chemoradiotherapy.
Health agencies are investigating an outbreak of bloodstream infections in children from four U.S. states that may be linked to heparin and saline syringes made by Becton Dickinson and Co, the agencies told Reuters.
Researchers used brain imaging to identify how patterns of brain connectivity the ability of different brain regions to talk to each other can affect a person's likelihood of developing common forms of mental illness. Individual regions of the brain have to team up to get things done. And like in any team, the key to working together is communication. The study was published in Biological Psychiatry.
