Although obesity has been considered a risk factor for more-severe cases of the flu, a new study, published in the International Journal of Obesity, found that it is not a risk factor for severe acute respiratory illnesses, including the flu, in children or adults.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are the unstable molecule containing oxygen. ROS plays an essential role in cell signaling and homeostasis. But, at times of environmental stress ROS levels increases resulting significant damage to cell structures
Using nuclear medicine, German researchers have found a way to accurately differentiate cancerous tissue from healthy tissue in prostate cancer patients. The research is highlighted in the journal of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
The researchers from the Wayne State University School of Medicine demonstrate how the human brain responds during cold exposure and what brain mechanisms may endow prolonged resistance to cold exposure. The study, published in the journal NeuroImage, hypothesize that by generating a stress-induced analgesic response in gray matter, the person may promote the spontaneous release of opioids and cannabinoids in the brain.
According to a new study, researchers examined the efficacy of moisturizer containing 4-t-butylcyclohexanol, which acts as a sensitivity regulator, and licochalcone A, an anti-inflammatory agentfrom the licorice plant Glycyrrhiza inflata, with that of 0.02% triamcinolone ace-tonide (TA) for the treatment of facial dermatitis. The study has published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
A new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience revealed how a pregnant woman's activated immune system can impact the developing nervous system of infant. The researchers found that short- and long-term brain functioning can be influenced by immune system activity during the third trimester of gestation.
According to this study, researchers examined a strain of S. epidermidis was shown to produce a molecule that kills cancer cells and inhibits the development of skin tumors in mice. Science continues to peel away layers of the skin microbiome to reveal its protective properties. They showed a potential new role for some bacteria on the skin: protecting against cancer. The study was published in Science Advances.
Human gut microbiota plays an essential role in both healthy and diseased states of humans. In the past decade, the interactions between microorganisms and tumors have attracted much attention in the efforts understanding various features of the complex microbial communities, as well as the possible mechanisms through which the microbiota are involved in cancer prevention, carcinogenesis, and anti-cancer therapy.
In this study, researchers found the ongoing clinical challenge of treating moderate-to-severe Graves' orbitopathy show some potential benefits from the addition of mycophenolate mofetil to the standard of care, methylprednisolone, no benefit from the addition of radiotherapy to oral steroids. The study has published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.
A new microfluidic device may help realize the potential of tumor-derived extracellular vesicles — tiny lipid particles that carry molecules through the bloodstream — as biomarkers that could monitor a tumor's response to therapy and provide detailed information to guide treatment choice.
Grand Challenges Canada today announced an investment of up to $7.9 million in 40 health innovations in India, supported by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada and complemented by contributions of dozens of partners, creating a total investment of up to $12.3 million.
