A new study, published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that patients with chronic heart failure face related problems, such as depression and fatigue, that could be relieved by an expanded model of care.

Forensic Scientists have found a more accurate way to estimate an individual's age at death, based on the bone mineral density of the femur. The technique could be used to help identify human remains. The findings were published in the journal Science & Justice.
In a collaborative study using a mouse model, researchers have found mechanistic links between older stored red blood cell transfusions and subsequent bacterial pneumonia. This may reveal new approaches to improve the safety of stored red blood cell transfusions. The key player is free heme, a breakdown product from degraded red blood cells.
A new study, published in the journal PLOS Pathogens, found that meal times may be key to managing malaria infections. The study suggests that manipulating the biological pathways that link eating to parasite rhythms could reduce both the severity and spread of malarial infection.
Researchers observed that small doses of NGM282, a non-tumorigenic variant of an endocrine gastrointestinal hormone, can significantly and rapidly decrease liver fat content in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The study was published in The Lancet.
Medical researchers have been trying to develop a vaccine for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) for more than 50 years, without success. New findings however, point to a promising route for designing an effective vaccine.
Paracetamol consumption is clearly highest in France, while its use of strong opioids is amongst the lowest in Europe. The studies, published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, indicate that individuals should take special care to follow labeled dosing directions for acetaminophen-containing products.
Researchers examined that the minimally invasive bunion surgery, an alternative to traditional surgery that can reduce post-surgical scarring, swelling and pain, Dr. Clifford Jeng, Medical Director, Institute for Foot & Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy, has announced. A bunionectomy involves removal of a painful bunion through corrective bone cuts (osteotomies) and soft tissue rebalancing to realign the big toe joint.
Survivors of adolescent and young adult cancer often have stronger social networks than their non-cancer peers, according to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital researchers, who hope to translate that support into better lives for the nation's growing population of cancer survivors. The findings appear online in the journal Cancer.
A few hours a week of light-intensity exercise lower the risk of death in older men, even if workouts are brief, according to a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The study findings challenge two long-held assumptions about the benefits of physical activity for the older adults.
A study reveals Bacterial spores store information about the individual growth history of their progenitor cells, thus retaining a "memory" that links the different stages of the bacterial life cycle. The spore memory could give rise to various adaptive behaviours in microbes. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
The research found to promising new treatment for allergic contact dermatitis that offers an alternative to corticosteroids and their possible side effects. They developed a mixture of antioxidants and moisturizers, combined with radical free radical scavengers and inhibitors, which suppressed an inflammatory response to the irritant. The study was published in Dermatology and Therapy.
