A study is determined to analyze the factors of foodborne diseases outbreak from 2010 to 2016 in Guangxi, South China. Foodborne diseases are a worldwide public health problem. However, data regarding epidemiological characteristics are still lacking in China.

Damage to some of the pathways that carry information throughout the brain may be responsible for attention deficit in patients who had a subcortical stroke in the brain's right hemisphere, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.
According to the study, by reducing abnormalities in the body clock of offspring, it may be possible to develop therapies for serious lifestyle-related diseases, such as heart disease and obesity
According to a study, researchers determined that patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) are associated with thinning of the calvaria and skull base. Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leaks (sCSF-L) of the temporal bone are associated with obesity, calvarial thinning, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and the incidence has doubled in the past decade. It is currently unknown if OSA is independently associated with skull thinning. The study was published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
Researchers at Kanazawa University report in Cell Stem Cell how the Spred1 molecule is involved in hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal. Experiments with mouse models show that under normal conditions, Spred1 acts as a negative regulator, while under diet-induced stress, it protects hematopoietic homeostasis.
MIT biologists have discovered a function of a gene that is believed to account for up to 40% of all familial cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Studies of ALS patients have shown that an abnormally expanded region of DNA in a specific region of this gene can cause the disease
According to a study, researchers examined that eight factors contribute to postoperative pain after spine surgery. The study held at the 2018 World Congress on Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine in New York City. They developed a model of postoperative pain after spine surgery. A total of 1,008 patients who underwent spine surgery under general anesthesia from 2011 to 2013 were included.
Early during the recent Ebola epidemic in West Africa, scientists speculated that the genetic diversity of the circulating Makona strain of virus (EBOV-Makona) would result in more severe disease and more transmissibility than prior strains.
However, using two different animal models, National Institutes of Health scientists have determined that certain mutations stabilized early during the epidemic and did not alter Ebola disease presentation or outcome. Their work, published in Cell Reports, offers further evidence to support previous findings from molecular sequencing that the diversity of EBOV-Makona did not significantly impact the course of disease.
According to a new study, researchers examine that Over 1,400 lives could be saved every year four more every day if more cancers were diagnosed through GP referral instead of emergency hospital admissions(EHA). The study is published in BMC Cancer. Cancers diagnosed following a GP referral are more likely to have been spotted early, meaning patients have a better chance of surviving or living longer with their disease.
Walmart, at the beginning of this week announced regulations regarding filling opioid prescriptions in its own in-store and Sam’s pharmacies. The company as part of its Opioid Stewardship Initiative has vowed to curb not only opioid addictions but also prevent their overdosages and prevent the over-prescription of opioids by doctors.
Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a germ that occurs naturally in the gut of mammals and birds, as well as in the human intestinal flora. These virulent E. coli types include Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), also known as Verotoxin-producing E. coli (VTEC), was found
