Researchers have identified the molecular basis of a major antibiotic resistance transfer mechanism. They also developed molecules and a proof-of-principle for blocking this transfer. One of the biggest current threats to global health is the rise of multi-drug resistant bacteria, caused by the spreading of antibiotic resistance among them. The study was published in Cell .

A new study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, demonstrates that switching from adalimumab to the biosimilar adalimumab-adbm had no impact on efficacy, safety, or immunogenicity, in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
According to a study to be presented at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting, set for April 22-27 in Washington, emergency patients are too often given head CT to check for skull fractures and brain hemorrhage, leading to unnecessary heath care costs and patient exposure to radiation.
A new study, led by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, suggests that Best Practice Advisory tool (part of the EPIC electronic health record system) failed to change most primary care physician (PCP) behaviors when it came to prescribing acne treatments. The study findings were presented at American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting, at San Diego.
A new study described that chemical peels can be a safe treatment option for people with darker skin. They show less than four percent of people with darker skin experienced unwanted side effects from a chemical peel. The study was published online in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
A perspective in PLOS Medicine suggests that people with HIV who achieve viral suppression with antiretroviral therapy can avoid sexual transmission of HIV without using condoms, a significant study that lends hope that the "treatment as prevention" method can stop the spread of the HIV infection.
Scientists from KU Leuven and the Universities of Pittsburgh, Stanford, and Penn State have identified fifteen genes that influence the development of a person's facial features. The study findings have appeared in the journal Nature Genetics. Forensic scientists may soon be able to sketch a perpetrator’s face based on DNA retrieved from a crime scene, thanks to scientists who have identified fifteen genes that determine our facial features.
According to a study, researchers examine that women who take hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during menopause appear to have changes in heart structure and function that may be associated with a lower risk of heart disease. The study was published in PLOS One.
A new study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine ( JABFM ) suggest that well-child visits are recommended as a strategy to improve birth outcomes, which also provide an opportune time to deliver basic screenings and health care interventions for new mothers between pregnancies.
A study found that researchers have identified a circuit in the primary visual cortex (V1) of the brain that integrates head- and visual-motion signals. They expose the mechanisms by which visual and vestibular inputs to the brain sum together to enable appropriate behavioral responses. The study was published in Neuron.
Researchers aims were, first, to investigate associations between harmful alcohol drinking and adherence to ART among HIV-positive people stratified by gender, and, second, to examine the association between harmful alcohol drinking and health-related QOL in HIV-positive people stratified by gender.
