Currently, no simple, routine, and reliable risk factors have been consistently identified to determine the prognosis of ARDS patients. To date, no studies have been reported regarding the relationship between the NLR and outcomes in ARDS patients. Researchers conducted this retrospective study to investigate the potential prognostic value of the NLR in patients with ARDS.

A study estimated that the well-known hazards of space freezing temperatures, crushing pressures, isolation astronauts also face risks from radiation, which can cause illness or injure organs. Though not believed to be an imminent threat to current missions, astronauts may one day face radiation from solar winds and galactic cosmic rays. The study was published in Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance.
Psychiatric researchers at the University of Adelaide are developing gene-based tests for personalized treatment for people with bipolar disorder . The hope is that genetic and blood test information could help determine which drug may work best for a patient, and what should be avoided.University of Adelaide
In the context of Nepal, only few literatures are available regarding assessment and investigation of APEC disease. In addition, the trend of pathological investigations of colibacillosis in Nepal is based on clinical symptoms and isolation of E. coli from fecal samples.
In the advanced study, UCLA neuroscientists could lead to a better understanding of astrocytes, a star-shaped brain cell believed to play a key role in neurological disorders like Lou Gehrig's, Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease
Researchers from the Temple University have found that inhibitors of oncogenic kinase AKT, a key protein governing the cell cycle, can arrest tumor cell proliferation, by triggering programmed cell death called apoptosis. The study, published in the journal Oncogene, describes significant progress in the clinical translation of previous basic scientific discoveries.
An Italian study featured in the March issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine demonstrates that a novel nuclear medicine imaging agent targeting copper accumulation in tumors can detect prostate cancer recurrence early in patients with biochemical relapse as indicated by rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.
Neuroscientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine report, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, that long-lasting brain proteins within synapses may be part of the molecular machinery that governs long-term memory and learning in all mammals.
It is difficult to conceptualize a world where humans could casually manipulate nanoscale objects at will or even control their own biological matter at a cellular level with light. But that is precisely what Yuebing Zheng is working toward with his "nanotweezers" — a new tool for handling nanoparticles using light that could create opportunities for innovations in nanotechnology and individual health monitoring. The study is published in the journal Nature Photonics.
In the study, researchers said that women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) should be given more advice about pregnancy so they can make informed choices about whether to have a family or not
Researchers at McMaster and Western universities are developing a new way for Canadians with severe asthma, in which an innovative lung imaging method provides a full picture of their disease, so their doctors can find the treatment that works best for them and helps them breathe easier.
