Researchers have discovered crucial new processes that allow malaria parasites to escape red blood cells and infect other cells, offering potential new treatment targets. The team are already working with pharmaceutical companies to use this knowledge to develop new antimalarial drugs – a critical step in the battle against drug-resistant malaria.

The researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine provides the first evidence of gender-specific differences in readmission rates after discharge from firearm injury hospitalization. The study, published in the American Journal of Men's Health, suggest that men are more likely than women to be readmitted to a hospital following firearm injury.
According to study, researchers examine increasing the availability of effective pain management in low- to middle-income countries will be an essential part of ongoing efforts to expand global access to safe surgery and anesthesia. The study was published in Anesthesia & Analgesia.
A study of patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) suggests that non-adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is significantly associated with increased 30-day hospital readmissions. The study results are published in the journal Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.
A new study, published in the journal Palliative Medicine, has highlighted the importance of assessing the support needs of family caregivers before dying patients are discharged from hospital so that carers are better prepared for the end of life caregiving at home.
A new study in mice provides new clues about how a class of anti-rejection drugs used after organ transplants may also slow the progression of early-stage Alzheimer's disease
In HIV patients, combination therapy with tenofovir alafenamide and emtricitabine is non-inferior to that of abacavir plus lamivudine, according to a manufacturer-sponsored trial.
A new bioinformatics analysis method developed at the Department of Virology of Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Germany has provided us with new information regarding viral infections. The method, published in the Nature Methods, used to demonstrate that virus-infected cells produce far more infection-related proteins and peptides than previously thought.
The tracheal bronchus is a congenital anatomical variant of patients with accessory bronchus in the right upper lobe deriving directly from the supracarinal trachea. Pre-operative consultation with the anesthesiologist is important for patient safety and can avoid adverse effects induced by endotracheal intubation. The study involves complications in the tracheal bronchus.
New cutting-edge technology can be used to grade cancer tumors, eradicating human subjectivity and ensuring patients get the right treatment.
A new study, presented Sunday at the Endocrine Society’s 100th annual meeting in Chicago, suggests that a once a day birth control pill—called dimethandrolone undecanoate (DMAU)—can be safe and effective in male test subjects.
A study estimates the risk factors for new-onset chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients who have received a liver transplant. A total of 190 patients who underwent liver transplantation between March 2001 and January 2015 were followed up and analyzed retrospectively.
Sex, age, primary disease, preoperative laboratory findings, surgical approach, blood loss during the surgery and transfusion volume, postoperative complications, and the average levels of calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) were analyzed. In total, 40 patients developed new-onset CKD after transplantation.
