Researchers from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) have shown the large potential impact of a completely new type of antimalarial drug that kills mosquitoes, as opposed to existing drugs that target the parasite, to reduce the spread of malaria.

In children with allergic asthma, subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) may reduce long-term asthma medication use, a systematic review published in the journal Pediatrics suggests.
According to a study, researchers examined that space radiation may be a bigger worry for voyaging astronauts than scientists had thought, at least soon. The radiation dose rates from measurements obtained over the last four years exceeded trends from previous solar cycles by at least 30%, showing that the radiation environment is getting far more intense.
Genetically engineered human T cells that are effective at combating liver cancer in mice may one day help patients do the same, scientists report in the journal Hepatology.
A study determines that implementation of the 2015 American Thyroid Association guidelines on surgery for well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma was associated with a significant decrease in the rates of both up-front total thyroidectomy and completion thyroidectomy. The study was published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has cracked its oldest case yet after using forensic DNA evidence on a 4,000-year-old human head, answering a centuries-old question to whom exactly it belonged.
Preclinical imaging technology developer MR Solutions has launched a service to replace and upgrade gradient coils for preclinical MRI systems. This will significantly improve the magnet capability and system performance of older MRI systems.
According to study, researchers estimate that heart is capable of terminating arrhythmias itself after local gene therapy, potentially avoiding the need for patients to undergo painful electric shocks. Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia).
A new study in the American Journal of Medical Quality shows that consistent discharge education and hand-off to non-hospital physicians can decrease the likelihood of the premature readmission to the hospital after discharge by 48%.
Researchers from Vanderbilt University aim to unlock how irradiation might alter the mechanical properties of the microenvironment. The study, reported in the APL Bioengineering, demonstrated that ionizing radiation can reduce the stiffness of both the extracellular matrix of an extracted tumor and an isolated matrix of collagen fibers. The results pave the way for irradiation to be used to create matrices with tailored properties.
A study determines "Nightmare bacteria" with unusual resistance to antibiotics of last resort were found more than 200 times in the United States The problem mostly strikes people in hospitals and nursing homes who need IVs and other tubes that can get infected. In many cases, others in close contact with these patients also harbored the superbugs even though they were not sick a risk for further spread.
