In this study, researchers hypothesized that antidepressants have a class- and dose-dependent effect on mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) differentiation, which may affect bone metabolism. Use of antidepressant medications has been linked to detrimental bone mineral density and osteoporosis; However, the cellular basis behind these observations remains poorly understood.
Researchers estimated a new device worn like a visor could detect an emergent large-vessel occlusion in patients with suspected stroke with 92% accuracy. Patients with large-vessel occlusions can then be routed to a Comprehensive Stroke Center with endovascular capabilities. The study was published in the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery.
Researchers found a rationale for repurposing a class of antitumor compounds called HDAC inhibitors, already approved by the FDA for the treatment of leukemia, as a new therapeutic option for ovarian cancer with mutations in the ARID1A gene
Scientists from A * STAR's Institute of Medical Biology (IMB) have discovered that gastric cancer has been driven by Lgr5-expressing chief cells , it could be helpful for developing more effective treatments in the clinic.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are poorly designed to support longitudinal and personalized healthcare, an international team of primary care researchers reports. So the study, published in the Annals of Family Medicine, recommends that the current problem-oriented fee-for-documentation structure of EHRs be replaced by a framework built around the life and health goals.
