According to a study, researchers used the model spinal cord injuries in rats for their purposes. As a result, it was found out that therapy by adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells combined with fibrin matrix influences the restoration of motor functions. It also decreases the area of pathological cavities and reduces astroglial activation.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been awarded $58.1 million from the National Institutes of Health to renew its five-year Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program to help improve the health of North Carolinians.
Shorter courses of prostate cancer radiotherapy in higher doses are safer and more efficacious for the patients, a new study presented at the ESTRO 37 conference suggests.
The revised guidelines of American Academy of Pediatrics, which replaced those developed in 2004 by the National Institute of Health's National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, include new normative BP tables that lower abnormal BP cutoffs for most age groups by several mm Hg
A study examines that researchers have used a new variant of super-resolution microscopy to visualize all the strands of a DNA-based nanostructure for the first time. The method promises to optimize the design of such structures for specific applications. The term 'DNA origami' refers to a method for the design and self-assembly of complex molecular structures with nanometer precision.The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
A new study pulished in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy confirmed that filgotinib improved self-reported outcomes of health-related quality of life when given in combination with methotrexate (MTX) or as monotherapy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
According to the study, patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) given just one-quarter of the normal dose of abiraterone acetate (AA) with food achieves at least as great a reduction in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels as the standard dose without food
The adult human heart cannot regenerate itself after injury, and the death of cardiac muscle cells, known as cardiomyocytes, irreversibly weakens the heart and limits its ability to pump blood. Heart disease is a major global health problem, myocardial infarction annually affects more than one million people in the U.S. alone, and there is still no effective treatment. The study was published in Nature Biomedical Engineering.
A special recovery program, developed and implemented at the University of Virginia Health System, for managing patients throughout the thoracic surgery, not only improved clinical outcomes, but also reduced both healthcare costs and opioid use.
In the study, researchers developed a new candidate vaccine against Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) using a recombinant replication-incompetent rabies virus (RV) vector
