About one in five older cancer patients report experiencing financial toxicity, according to researchers from the University of Rochester in New York. In a large cohort of more than 500 patients aged 70 years and older, 18% stated they were experiencing financial problems related to the cost of their treatment and that this was taking a toll on their care, quality of life, and mental well-being.
The causes of the difficult-to-treat pain syndrome fibromyalgia are largely unknown. Using PET brain imaging, researchers at Karolinska Institutet and Massachusetts General Hospital have now shown that glial cells – the central nervous system's immune cells – are activated in the brains of patients with fibromyalgia. The finding has been published in the scientific journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity and may open the way for new therapies
Researchers have developed a new simple blood test that can tell the time in your body which might be very different from the time showing on the clock on the wall. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers used advanced microscopes to determine at atomic resolution the structure of a molecular complex implicated in birth defects and several cancers. The study was published today in Science.
A unique source of stem cells in the blood helps to build blood vessels in the growing embryo according to new research published in Nature and part-funded by the British Heart Foundation.
A study of the way mouse embryos attach to the womb may one day lead to an improvement in the conception rates of women having IVF. University of Manchester scientists say mildly stressing an embryo might result in an increased likelihood of successful attachment to the womb
An international clinical trial that studied wearable cardioverter defibrillators (WCDs) found that the devices did not significantly reduce sudden cardiac death the primary goal of the device among patients assigned to the device in the first 90 days after a heart attack, but did lower mortality among those who wore it as prescribed, according to a study led by researchers at UC San Francisco.
The devices, which consist of highly sensitive tests that can deliver an electric shock when the heart beats out of rhythm, are designed to provide medical intervention around the clock for patients who have had a heart attack and are at further risk of death due to arrhythmia. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
Intestinal bacteria can create an electric current, according to a new study. The results are valuable for the development of drugs, but also for the production of bioenergy, for example.
The taller you are, the more likely you are to develop varicose veins, according to a study led by Stanford University School of Medicine researchers that examined the genes of more than 400,000 people in search of clues to what causes this common but little-understood condition.
