According to researchers, people who had prediabetes (elevated blood sugar levels at risk of developing diabetes), the anti-inflammatory drug canakinumab did not affect rates of newly diagnosed. Since diabetes is thought to be related to inflammatory processes like those involved in heart disease, researchers hypothesized that the drug might help slow or prevent the progression from prediabetes to diabetes.
The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has issued a clinical guideline for the use of whole-breast radiation therapy that expands the eligibility criteria for hypofractionated therapy.
Developing a universal influenza vaccine — a vaccine that can provide durable protection for all age groups against multiple influenza strains, including those that might cause a pandemic — is a priority for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health.
A new study published in JAMA shows that high healthcare spending in the U.S. stems not just from elevated prescription drug costs or its fee-for-service model—but from high costs across the American healthcare industry. The United States spends nearly double what 10 other wealthy nations spend on healthcare, researchers report.
Researchers have analyzed gene expression in synovial tissue from joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and identified three different synovial subtypes of rheumatoid arthritis that exhibit different mechanisms of pain. The study findings were published in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatology.
A more intensive biomedical research approach is necessary to control and ultimately eliminate tuberculosis (TB), according to a perspective published in the March 2018 issue of The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.Researchers discuss the need to modernize TB research by applying new diagnostic, therapeutic, and vaccine approaches.
In this study, researchers have determined the structure of a key protein that is involved in the body's inflammatory response. This finding opens the door to developing new treatments for a wide range of illnesses, from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer to neurodegenerative disorders, including Parkinson's disease. The studies on protein structures at the atomic resolution level to understand the mechanism of their function in the body.
According to a study, researchers examined wearing a lightweight vest equipped with a cardioverter defibrillator that detects abnormal heart rhythms in addition to taking recommended medications is associated with a reduction in the likelihood of dying during the first 90 days following a heart attack in people whose heart function was also impaired.
Extremely low birth-weight babies are at risk for a chronic lung disease called bronchopulmonary dysplasia, or BPD. This condition can lead to death or long-term disease, but clinical measurements are unable to predict which of the tiny infants -; who get care in hospital intensive-care units and often weigh just one and a half pounds -; will develop BPD.
A new study, published in the journal Nature Microbiology, provide insight into how a common virus hijacks a host cell's protein to help assemble new viruses before they are released. The results increase our understanding of how viruses reproduce in the body and establish a rationale for the development of protein inhibitor as potential antiviral therapeutics.
Belgium researchers explored how people with Alzheimer's disease use medical services during their end-of-life. The study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, aimed to learn more about the best ways to help older adults with dementia at the end of their lives.
