Kimichi Has Probiotic Bacteria With Traditonal Quality

A new study finds that kimchi made without fish products has the same type of bacteria as more traditionally made kimchi. That finding suggests that any "probiotic" benefits associated with traditional kimchi could be present in vegan versions as well. Researchers have found that kimchi made without seafood products has the same 'probiotic' bacteria as more traditional kimchi. The study was published in the journal Food Microbiology.

Children Might Suffer From Psychological Effects After Being Hospitalized

A new study examined that children can suffer lasting psychological effects after being hospitalized for an unintentional injury. In children after an injury event, there were increased visits to health care providers that were associated with mental-health diagnoses. There was also an increase in prescriptions that are aimed to treat mental-health conditions. The study was published in The Journal Of Paediatrics.

ONC201 Destroys Breast Cancer Cells In vitro

TRAIL, a member of the TNF family of ligands, causes caspase-dependent apoptosis through activation of its receptors, death receptor 4 and DR5. ONC201 was originally identified as a small molecule that inhibits both Akt and ERK, resulting in dephosphorylation of Foxo3a and thereby induces TRAIL transcription


A High-Quality CPR Is Used In Emergency Department

Researchers are trained in high-quality CPR for more than three decades, including the past 16 years in the emergency department of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital. For Lovelace, teaching CPR meant knowing his words could potentially save a life. He never imagined that life would be his own. But when Lovelace had a massive heart attack that triggered a cardiac arrest last April while at work, it was the training he provided his colleagues, who jumped in and performed CPR, that kept him alive.

New Tool Could Detect Pathiogenic Strains Of Bacterium

A study developed a new machine learning tool that can detect whether emerging strains of the bacteriumSalmonella are more likely to cause dangerous bloodstream infections rather than food poisoning has been developed. The tool, created by a scientist at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, they greatly speeds up the process for identifying the genetic changes underlying new invasive types of Salmonella that are of public health concern. The study was published in PLOS Genetics.

Drug-Resistant Melanoma Developed Resistance To A Targeted Therapy

Researchers have now exposed this acquired vulnerability in melanoma that has developed resistance to a targeted therapy with BRAF inhibitors. The team then developed a new therapeutic strategy to selectively kill the drug-resistant cancer cells. Cancer cells that develop resistance to drugs pay a price for this by simultaneously developing a new vulnerability. If this acquired vulnerability can be identified, it may be exploited clinically.

Assessment Of Suspicious Laryngopharyngeal Lesions By Tissue Biopsy Techniques

Laryngopharyngeal lesions encompass a wide range of disease processes that include benign lesions, local manifestations of systemic disease, inflammatory disorders, and primary malignancies. Operative endoscopy and flexible fiber-optic in-office tissue biopsy are common techniques to assess suspicious laryngopharyngeal lesions. In the United States, an estimated 61,700 new cases of oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx cancer will arise in 2016 and an estimated 13,190 deaths will occur from these cancers combined.
