Gene FGF21 increases sweet desire which was proven in earlier studies but now for the first time researchers have explained this gene variant decreases fat in the body despite its effect on diet
A study showed that researchers had estimated a "computational microscope" that can simulate the atomic and subatomic forces that drive molecular interactions. This tool will streamline efforts to understand the chemistry of life, model large molecular systems and develop new pharmaceutical and industrial agents. The study was published in the journal Nature Methods.
Jin-Liern Hong, Ph.D., from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and colleagues examined the risks of acute pancreatitis among U.S. Medicare beneficiaries, aged 66+ years, initiating DDP-4Is versus thiazolidinediones or sulfonylureas.
According to a new study in the US, one infant is born every 15 minutes with withdrawal symptoms after being exposed to opioids before birth, which is published in the journal Pediatrics
The researcher studied the growth of Bacteria in space experiments under microgravity conditions have been found to undergo unique physiological responses, ranging from modified cell morphology and growth dynamics to a putative increased tolerance to antibiotics. To further characterize the responses, this study investigated the transcriptomic response of Escherichia coli to both microgravity and antibiotic concentration.
Activated T-cells and dendritic cells (DCs) occur in atherosclerotic plaques. Proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin 9 (PCSK9) targets the LDL?receptor (LDLR) and results in increased LDL?levels. Effects of PCSK9 on T-cell activation was studied here.
A new international, randomized, double-blind study indicates that denosumab is more efficacious than the bisphosphonate risedronate in boosting bone mineral density (BMD) at the lumbar spine in patients just starting or continuing steroid therapy
Blood and marrow transplant, or BMT, is a lifesaving and effective treatment for many patients, but the procedure can cause serious and life-threatening complications.
New research out of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and The Ohio State University has identified a link between rare variants in a number of novel genes and survival after transplantation of blood and marrow from an unrelated donor, opening avenues for improving individual risk prediction and prognosis for patients undergoing BMT.
Cancer treatments like chemotherapy or radiotherapy do not raise the risk dying from heart disease in breast cancer patients, according to study from German Cancer Research Centre.
A new study by UNC School of Medicine researchers shows that e-liquids are far from harmless and contain ingredients that can vary wildly from one type of e-cigarette to another
A retrospective study determines the characteristics of community-acquired bacterial skin infections, to observe their antibiotic susceptibility patterns, and to evaluate factors contributing to the treatment response. Bacterial skin infections occur secondarily in conditions involving a vulnerable skin barrier such as atopic eczema, as well as primarily such as impetigo. Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococci mainly cause them.
