Interventions involving literacy-adapted and simplified group cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and pain education significantly improved pain and physical function in patients presenting at low-income clinics, according to findings published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
According to a research review, compared to inactive people, recreational soccer players have lower cholesterol, blood pressure and resting heart rates as well as less fat mass.
A new study published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, reveal that a small but significant subset of colorectal cancer patients do harbor inherited mutations in DNA repair genes not previously linked to colorectal cancer risk.
E-cigarette liquids sweetened with flavorings like vanilla and cinnamon may harm the lungs even when they do not contain nicotine, according to a study published recently in the journal Frontiers in Physiology.
The Indian government's plan to spend $230 million over two years to prevent crop residue burning is below the spending estimates of its policy advisors for the task and may do little to cut the air pollution that envelops the capital region of Delhi.
Scientists have found and characterized the activity of four antibodies produced by the human immune system that target an important protein found in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), according to a study published in PLOS Pathogens.
Researchers have tried to find more evidence about the consequences of the phosphorylation of Rab8 and have found out an important relationship between lipid storage and Parkinson’s disease (PD) pathogenesis.
There were some glimmers of good news in an otherwise grim report released by UNICEF this week documenting the alarmingly high death rate of newborns worldwide: Bangladesh has managed to cut its newborn mortality rate from 64.2 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1990 to 20.1 per 1,000 today.
New studies in children and adolescents with major depressive disorder (MDD) reported negative outcomes, failing to support the effectiveness of desvenlafaxine (Pristiq, Pfizer) compared to placebo. The new research, published in Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology, demonstrated the lack of efficacy of desvenlafaxine in young people with MDD.
The researchers aimed to find further reasons why simulated microgravity conditions are associated with a change in growth behavior and increased spheroid and tube formation (angiogenesis) of these ECs. The results obtained suggested that the 3D growth of ECs in a microgravity-dependent system is driven via a network of genes and proteins involved in cell structure maintenance and intercellular signaling.
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of different compositions of OD-ECM by different stages of osteogenesis. The researchers investigated the re-seeded osteoblast effect on different compositions of ECM as followed: GM-ECM, OD-ECM-2 W, and OD-ECM-4 W. Differentiation and maturation of re-seeded osteoblasts were determined by analysis of the known indicators of the osteoblast phenotype, calcification, mineralization, and protein activity under a growth medium and osteogenic differentiation medium.
