Mexican cave-fish might have insulin resistance, a hallmark of many human metabolic disorders and a precursor to type 2 diabetes that can lead to an overworked pancreas, excess fat storage, and chronically elevated blood sugar.
Researchers from the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions studied the use of nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and looked at new strategies to reduce NRTIs side effects and at the potential for a long-acting delivery system.
A new study published in the American Journal of Infection Control suggests that disinfecting pediatric long-term care facilities with ultraviolet-C can dramatically reduce the rates of viral respiratory infection — including influenza, rhinovirus, enterovirus and human metapneumovirus — achieving a 44% reduction when compared with traditional disinfection methods.
Researchers at Okayama University describe in the journal Scientific Reports the role of an extracellular protein, versican, in regulating tumor growth and providing a newly formed network of blood vessels to further nourish the tumor.
As part of comprehensive maternal and fetal care, prenatal micronutrient supplements should be considered as "uniquely effective first steps in decreasing risk for future psychiatric and other illnesses in newborn children," says the review of research
Patients with inflammatory polyarthritis (IP) diagnosed within the new millennium had improved disease activity compared with patient populations 10 years earlier, but functional disability levels, and mortality were unchanged, according to a study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
Bariatric surgery is a life-changing treatment for patients with severe obesity, but little has been known about its association with their interpersonal relationships. The study investigated if relationship status has altered after surgery.
In this study, researchers evaluated a 3D anatomy of foveolar cells and might help for SCE I. In the foveola of the eye, photoreceptors and Müller cells with a unique morphology have been described, but little is known about their 3D structure and orientation. They performed 3D modeling of central- and para-foveolar cones to investigate their exact anatomical shape, orientation, and spatial arrangement.
Scientists surveyed more than 4,400 residents of Sao Paulo about their coffee-drinking habits and correlated them with the coronary artery calcium (CAC) readings. CAC scans look for signs of calcium buildup in the pulmonary artery.
