Researchers at the Yale School of Public Health have discovered that the rates of two major sexually transmitted infections (STIs), gonorrhea and chlamydia, are 21% and 19% higher, respectively, in Ohio counties with high shale gas activity ("fracking"), compared to counties without any fracking. Rates of a third STI, syphilis, were not elevated.The findings are published in the journal PLOS One.
A new study published in the Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice suggests that peak flow meter or microspirometer can be used routinely in primary care among patients with suspected chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) for early case identification that results in appropriate management for the condition at an earlier stage.
In the present study, researchers evaluated the effect of fresh packed red blood cells (RBC) transfusion on survival and cardiovascular function in Aluminum phosphide (AlP)-poisoned rats.
A researcher develops a bioresorbable vascular access solution for patients undergoing dialysis treatment for chronic kidney disease(CKD). This was developed by Aditlys, first medical technology was firm for developing a solution for patients with CKD. Aditlys' polymer-based graft enables a patient's body to naturally reconstruct its own blood vessels using the body's own tissue.
Two types of blood thinning drugs are safe to use in patients with an irregular heartbeat when they are undergoing surgery aimed at stopping the condition, according to a trial published in European Heart Journal.
The study is conducted to provide orthopedic surgeons and musculoskeletal researchers with knowledge regarding the current impact and future potential of nanotechnology and also to identify nanotechnology studies with ongoing clinical trials in each respective section
A migraine is much more than just a bad headache. Migraine symptoms, which can be debilitating for many people, are the sixth leading cause of disability, according to the World Health Organization. While there is no cure, a new study published in Cephalalgia shows single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation is a new way to prevent migraine attacks. It's safe, easy to use and noninvasive.
New studies show a correlation between Cell Phone radiation and cancer, in lab rats. But the evidence may not resolve ongoing debates over causality or whether any effects arise in people.
Collagen has been involved in the structural integrity of tissues. Its low immunogenicity and mechanical properties make this molecule extremely suitable for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) strategies in human health issues.
According to study, researchers examine a gene that is resistant to an antibiotic often used as a last resort has been tracked from its origins on Chinese pig farms to hospital patients worldwide. The study was published in Nature Communications. They found that the mcr-1 gene, now present across the globe, can be tracked to a single event around 2005 when it moved from pigs into pathogens that affect humans.
Totally implanted venous access ports (TIVAPs) are commonly used for patients requiring long-term or iterative treatments such as antineoplastic chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition, and transfusion. Even if TIVAPs are associated with a low risk of infection, they still remain a source of infections potentially leading to life-threatening sepsis and subsequent admission in the intensive care unit (ICU)
