Potential New Antimalarial Treatment Targets Dicovered

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.

Gaining Profound Insight Into Viral Infections

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.

 

Anesthesia Given To Tracheal Bronchus Patients

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.

To Analyze The Risk Factors For CKD Patients

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.
