Breastfeeding has known benefits for both baby and mom, but if a new mom also smokes marijuana, the drug turns up in her breast milk, research finds
NASA's Project Mercury was the United States' first human-in-space program. Six astronauts carried out successful one-person spaceflights that offered physicians and scientists the first opportunity to observe the effects of living in space on the human body. "Spaceflight data is hard to come by; we should remember what's already been done, so we can make the most of new opportunities to do human research in space," said corresponding author Dr. Virginia Wotring. The study was published in the journal Microgravity.
A Purdue University-patented technology shows promise in using microscopic bubbles filled with oxygen to help improving cancer therapies including radiation and chemotherapy, and helping wounds heal faster.
According to the research, Scientists at the University of Wyoming explained that mice engineered to have Huntington's disease (HD) have an over-accumulation of iron in their mitochondria.
People die from bleeding each year, and though injuries that result in extreme blood loss have long been a sight all too common in areas like West Philadelphia, the national spotlight has certainly shone upon the issue of late. These days it seems everyone has a dog in the fight; as politicos battle over gun control legislation, teens march in the streets advocating for improved school safety measures, and debates wear on across the dinner table, trauma experts at the national, state and local levels are taking cues from decades-long CPR awareness campaigns to improve public education and training in life-saving bleeding control (B-Con) techniques.
A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation shows that a peptide molecule produced during cartilage deterioration may drive osteoarthritis-associated pain. The cartilage has no neurons to transmit pain signals, so better understanding of how it causes that pain may lead to better treatments for OA.
In the study, researchers explore glomerular cell’s specific responses to diabetes and cell cross-talk will provide mechanistic clues that underlie Diabetic Kidney Disease and provide novel avenues for therapeutic intervention
According to a new study, the growth rates of small renal masses (SRMs) are highly variable early on during active surveillance, especially in the first 6 to 12 months, but this decreases with time and does not portend death or adverse pathologic features of the tumor. The study was published in the issue of Journal of Urology.
Engineers have developed a tiny, ultra-low-power chip that could be injected just under the surface of the skin for continuous, long-term alcohol monitoring. The chip is powered wirelessly by a wearable device such as a smartwatch or patch. The goal of this work is to develop a convenient, routine monitoring device for patients in substance abuse treatment programs.
Genetic impairment of respiratory muscles via the SCN4A gene may be linked to certain cases of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), according to a new study
