According to the preliminary study, researchers suggest that an investigational drug may help increase protein levels in babies with spinal muscular atrophy
A study has determined that workflow interruptions are most likely to occur during two key events electronic medical record documentation and direct patient care. Findings suggest that changes in the workflow in emergency departments could increase the care team's efficiency and help improve patient care. Interruptions in workflow, such as a phone call while working on another task, or when a colleague stops by for a chat, can lead to inefficiencies in the workplace. For nurses working in emergency departments, those interruptions could affect patient care.
In general, evidence on what works in addressing Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Workplace Violence (WPV) against working women, particularly garment workers is limited worldwide.
Given the massive increase in women’s employment in factories globally, and specifically in Bangladesh, with the potential to increase women’s experiences of violence in the home and workplace, there remains a lack of effective interventions to reduce this.
The present study describes an evaluation of HERrespect, an intervention which aims to address IPV and WPV against female garment workers in and around Dhaka.
Internists' pay went up 2%, to $230,000 but it still ranked near the bottom among specialties. The largest gain was in psychiatry (16%), and the biggest pay drop was in general surgery, where compensation fell 9%.
The present study suggests that NR4A1 is involved in the fibrosis of ovarian endometriosis and that Cytosporone B (Csn-B), an agonist of NR4A1, is a potential candidate for the treatment of endometriosis
According to a new study, the researcher examines a compound derived from immune cells treats psoriasis in mice and holds promise for other autoimmune diseases. The compound suppresses an inflammatory pathway that is overactive in many autoimmune diseases, suggesting that it may be effective against multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and other autoimmune diseases as well as psoriasis. The study was published in Nature.
Over the past decade, minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (MIMVS) has grown in popularity. Less invasive approaches to mitral valve surgery are increasingly used for improved cosmesis. Researchers sought to compare these minimally invasive approaches fairly with conventional full sternotomy approaches by using propensity-matching methods.
Keeping transplant livers on "life support" at body temperature preserves them better than the prevailing method of near-freezing, and could reduce the number of donor organs thrown away, a study revealed.
According to the study, researchers explained that under the conditions of high spatial resolution and voxelwise data analysis with a homogeneous tissue model, decreases the scan duration of L-[1-11C]leucine PET studies from 90 to 60 min, which has negligible effects on estimates of rates of cerebral protein synthesis (rCPS)
According to a new study, research estimates that being an "evening person" is linked to higher body mass indices among people with Type 2 diabetes, and having breakfast later in the day seems to be what drives this association. The study was published in the journal Diabetic Medicine.
New research has found that many of the viruses infecting us today have ancient evolutionary histories that date back to the first vertebrates and perhaps the first animals in existence.
