In this research, they showed that the protein, adiponectin can perhaps affect how a tooth shifts in the mouth. Fellow Sigrid Haugen and co-workers have, investigated this phenomenon. A frequent problem in orthodontic practice is that the teeth do not remain in their new positions. In the body, some proteins works as small keys that unlock cells and tell them to perform a specific task.

A new study published in the journal Pain suggests that Naldemedine, a mu-opioid receptor antagonist, can relieve opioid-induced constipation in patients with chronic non-cancer pain.
A research team from Washington State University has shown for the first time that nicotine residue can be extracted from plaque, also known as "dental calculus," on the teeth of ancient tobacco users. The research provides a new method that could help trace the ancient use of tobacco and other intoxicating plants further back into prehistory. The study findings were published in Journal of Archaeological Science Reports.
Drugs normally used to treat cancer could reduce the disfigurements of thousands of children born with life-threatening blood vessel defects including arteriovenous malformation (AVM), according to the researchers at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). The study findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
In this study, researchers analyzed the prevalence of GSs among community-dwelling older adults in Moscow, based on the questionnaire and the comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA). A cross-sectional study was conducted in four community clinics in Moscow. A total of 1,220 patients completed a screening questionnaire, and 356 of them also underwent a comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA).
Reduced health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in surgically and medically treated patients with glaucoma is associated with factors including worse diplopia, poorer visual acuity in either eye and treatment type, according to a study published online in JAMA Ophthalmology.
Increasing stress and a lack of motivation among healthcare staff could result in hospitals having to shut down in the wake of a major incident such as flooding or an earthquake, according to a study published in the journal Procedia Engineering.
Led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, a diverse team of neuroscientists and surgeons successfully grafted human neural progenitor cells into rhesus monkeys with spinal cord injuries. The grafts not only survived, but grew hundreds of thousands of human axons and synapses, resulting in improved forelimb function in the monkeys.
New research will improve how scientists "see inside" molecular structures in solution, allowing for much more precise ways to image data in various fields, from astronomy to drug discovery. The new method will allow for the visualization of many more biological molecules, providing critical information about what is inside molecules to scientists who currently can only access their outer shape or envelope. This study was published in Nature Methods.
According to study, researchers examined Varicose veins are associated with increased risk of deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and peripheral artery disease. The study has published in JAMA. The association was strongest for deep vein thrombosis (DVT), whereas the associations with PE and PAD may be affected by confounding factors, the researchers wrote.
