A New Evidence For The Value The Protective Role Of Estrogens

The study exhibits the epidemiological data; researchers demonstrate the value of estrogen supplementation from the onset of menopause. They also show that only one of the three estrogen receptors seems to be involved in this mechanism. This could ultimately provide more targeted therapies. An explosion of type 2 diabetes cases for women after menopause. The study was published in JCI Insight.

Circadian Clock May Control Daily Rhythms of Aggression

In a study published in Nature Neuroscience, a team of American scientists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) has demonstrated the circadian clocks may regulate the aggressive behaviors of male mice, opening the door to potential opportunities for managing the evening-time agitation common in patients with degenerative neurological disorders.

Treatment In Advanced Melanoma Is Changing with The Approval Of New Drugs

The treatment landscape in advanced melanoma is changing dramatically with the approval of new drugs. Vemurafenib was the first approved targeted agent for the treatment of BRAF-mutant advanced melanoma. However, treatment with a BRAF inhibitor is linked with acquired resistance occurring in half of the patients after approximately six months. Combination of MEK and BRAF inhibitor therapy results in extension of the time to resistance, translating into longer overall survival of treated patients.

Enzyme Helps Bacteria Recover From Exposure To Antibiotics

A study focused on an Enzyme; Researchers examined the enzyme in gram-negative bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a pathogen that causes pneumonia and sepsis. Beta-lactam antibiotics, including penicillin, are one of the most widely used classes of antibiotics in the world. Though they have been in use since the 1940s, scientists still don't fully understand what happens when this class of drugs encounters bacteria.

Flu Prevention And Treatment: Novel Approach

This year's flu vaccine has been less effective in protecting people from the most common strain of the virus, compared with recent years. And once people become infected with the flu, there are few good ways to treat it.

Now scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have discovered a new aspect of the flu virus and how it interacts with antibodies in the lungs. This research could lead to a new approach for developing vaccines to prevent the flu, as well as novel treatments for people who are already infected. The study is being published today in the journal Cell Reports
