A new study, published in the British Journal of the General Practice, shows that point-of-care test known as Flexicult does not lead clinicians to change antibiotic prescription rates in women with urinary tract infections following their diagnosis.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a high-tech isotope separation platform, the Radio Genix System (NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes), to be used in producing the isotope technetium-99m (Tc-99m) from non-uranium-based molybdenum-99 (Mo-99).
According to the birth-cohort study, glyphosate exposure in pregnancy may also increase fetal exposure risk; researchers also determined exposure frequency, potential exposure pathways, and associations with fetal growth indicators and pregnancy length
Men with type 2 diabetes are less likely to develop prostate cancer than patients without diabetes. However, the mortality rate is higher. Researchers were able to show that in the affected individuals the androgen receptor and the mitogenic forms of the insulin receptor were more strongly expressed.
