By combining data on pathology images of 13 types of cancer and correlating that with clinical and genomic data, a Stony Brook University-led team of researchers could identify tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), called TIL maps.
Energy-based devices are both safe and effective methods of nonsurgical treatment for feminine rejuvenation, according to a review published online in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
According to a study, researchers estimated that allergies are on the rise in Africa, but with too few specialists to treat them, and a parallel increase in immune deficiency diseases, the situation is worse than they thought. Across Africa, many communities are faced daily with sewage-contaminated water supplies, unsanitary living conditions, and parasite infestations. The study was published in The Journal of Allergy.
A team of chemical and biomedical engineers from the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin has discovered that HIV-infected patients experience dysfunction in a certain type of immune cell: the follicular helper T (Tfh) cell.
Rapid genomic sequencing for babies and children with suspected genetic conditions improves health outcomes and saves healthcare dollars – transforming rare disease diagnosis in paediatric and neonatal intensive care.
For hospitalized patients, pain is an all-too-common part of the experience. Even as current research demonstrates that hospitalized patients' exposure to opioids has contributed to the nationwide addiction epidemic. Now, a national working group convened by the Society of Hospital Medicine has developed a Consensus Statement intended to limit opioid use for hospitalized adults with acute pain.
Alzheimer's disease(AD) is incurable. It is often argued that progress in drug research has been hampered by the fact that the disease could only be diagnosed when it is too late for effective intervention.
Discovery by Scripps Research scientists may offer insight into treating blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia. In a new study, Velia Fowler, PhD, and her lab at The Scripps Research Institute report that a protein called myosin IIA contracts to give red blood cells their distinctive shape.
The findings, published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could shed light on sickle cell diseases and other disorders where red blood cells are deformed.
Scientists 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 chemical diversity of the soft coral Sinularia species in Bornean water has led to the isolation of one new cembranoid, sinularolide F (2), cembranolide (1), 15α-octahydro-cyclotetradeca[β]furan-2(3H)-one (3), and denticulatolide.
In this observational study, researchers examined the parturients with increased physiologically intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and short stature; a greater cephalad spread of spinal anesthesia is often observed after a fixed amount of plain bupivacaine is administered. Therefore, we designed this prospective study to test whether IAP and a vertebral column length (VCL) were predictors of spinal spread in parturients undergoing a cesarean section.
