Genetically engineered human T cells that were effective at fighting liver cancer in mice might help patients fight liver cancer. In a study, genetically engineered mice were exposed to antigens found in human liver cancer.
India recently announced an ambitious plan called the National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) to provide government-sponsored insurance to roughly 500 million people or nearly 40% of India’s population.
Since the announcement, there has been much debate about two issues. First, does this plan make sense? Second, if it is a good idea, what should the design of NHPS look like? In this op-ed, we use insights from our prior studies and those of other experts to inform the debate on both of these questions.
Researchers from Karolinska Institutet have shown that an enzyme called FIH defines the consumption of oxygen by muscles. Enzyme naive muscles show an increased need for oxygen during physical exercise. The finding, published in the journal Cell Metabolism, has the potential significance to elite athletes, who have been found to have higher levels of FIH in their muscles than others.
Researchers detected quantifiable levels of intrahepatic hepatitis B closed circular DNA in approximately half of the deceased, donated livers with occult HBV infection using a novel droplet digital polymerase chain reaction-based assay.
In the study, researchers demonstrated that nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) conjugation to magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) increases their stability
According to a study, researchers determine that abnormal brain development is evident among medication-naive preschoolers with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study was published in the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society.
Four new briarane diterpenoids, briaviolides K–N (1–4), have been obtained from the cultured-type octocoral Briareum violaceum. The structures of briaranes 1–4 were identified using a spectroscopic approach.
In the present study, researchers examined the patients with the acute amnestic syndrome to determine the presence of Fentanyl traces in urine through Immunoassays
