Kids are embarrassed about warts on their hands or face, not wanting to be teased at school. Similarly, the thought of a fungal infection on the skin, like with ringworm, makes many parents shudder with uneasiness. And they are genuinely scared about the spread of any bacterial skin infection like impetigo. Pools, locker rooms, contact sports, and pets all offer opportunities for your kids to catch "icky" skin conditions such as warts, ringworm, and impetigo, they would rather they didn't bring home.

Two assays, one biopsy-based and one blood-based, can predict non-response to anti-TNF-alpha therapy before starting treatment in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to findings of the Israeli IBD Research Network.
Acetaminophen is considered the go-to pain medication during pregnancy. But a new study adds to evidence linking the drug to an increased risk of behavioural issues in kids
A study estimated technology; researchers have gained new insights into the embryonic development of the mouse heart. They discovered that during development, when progenitor heart cells progressively differentiate into various cell types, the Hippo pathway is essential to coordinate the development of these cell types into a working heart. The study was published in the journal Developmental Cell. This technology that provides a 'high-resolution view' of the status of individual cells.
Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile is a marine plant with interesting biological properties potentially ascribed to the synergistic combination of bioactive compounds. Impaired HT1080 cell migration by targeting both expression and activity of gelatinases.
Researchers discovered an easily measured gene linked to a high fatality rate, which could be used as a novel prognostic biomarker in patients with a Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) bloodstream infection, according to the research
A new high-power laser system generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. Molecules are the building blocks of life. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of health. A joint venture between Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics (MPQ) in Munich, they want to use brilliant infrared light to study molecular disease markers in much greater detail, for example, to facilitate early-stage cancer diagnosis.
By tracking individual microbubbles, high-resolution images can be taken with conventional ultrasound scanners. A new method of analyzing ultrasound images, conventional scanners can be used for generating high-res images of blood vessels in tumors.
Research conducted a meta-analysis to review clinical outcomes in patients taking aspirin and clopidogrel, with and without concomitant Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to address concerns of adverse reactions
Osteoclasts have been strongly implicated in osteoarthritic cartilage degradation, at least indirectly via bone resorption, and have been shown to degrade cartilage in vitro. The osteoclast resorption processes required to degrade subchondral bone and cartilage the remodelling of which is important in the osteoarthritic disease process have not been previously described, although cathepsin K has been indicated to participate.
A new study suggests that in some regions of sub-Saharan Africa, nearly one in four blood bank supplies contain the parasites that cause malaria. It focused on the blood supply of Guinea's capital, Malabo, found a high level of malaria infection.
Contact precautions, used in addition to the standard precautions, the basic level of infection control applied to all patients, did not limit or prevent the spread of drug-resistant bacteria in non-intensive care unit (ICU) hospital wards, according to the research
