Loss of cabin pressure rare in modern aviation but a serious condition that has led to fatalities in the past, experts say. The loss of cabin pressure that a Jet Airways flight experienced is a rare incident in modern commercial aviation but a serious condition that has led to fatalities in the past, experts say.
A newly developed drug can prevent the most common type of pancreatic cancer from growing and spreading in laboratory mice, according to a study led by Cedars-Sinai
Treating newborn mice with farmyard microbes reduces wheezing and inflammation in the airways, by 'taming' their immune systems. The findings, from a study recently published in the journal Science Immunology, reveal more about the mechanisms underlying hyperresponsiveness in the airways of the lungs – which causes wheezing and is a core component of childhood asthma.
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute—led by Juergen Hahn, professor and head of biomedical engineering—are continuing to make remarkable progress with their research focused on autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
A cross-functional team of Children's surgeons used three custom-made splints, which biomedical engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technology helped create using an innovative and experimental 3-D-printing technology, to assist the breathing of a 7-month-old patient battling life-threatening airway obstruction
In proof-of-concept experiments, University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have highlighted a potential therapy for a rare but potentially deadly blood-clotting disorder, TTP.
Telomeres are DNA-protein structures that play a vital role in maintaining DNA stability and integrity. Telomere length (TL) is an important biomarker of aging and overall health, but TL has been mostly studied in adult populations of European or Asian ancestry
For children with traumatic epidural hematomas (EDHs), repeated computed tomography (CT) imaging is common but rarely impacts management, according to a study published in the September issue of Pediatrics
Lyme borreliosis is a disease caused by bacteria of the genus Borrelia that are transmitted by a bite from a tick of the genus Ixodes. Scientists from the Institut Pasteur used mice to study the transmission of bacteria by ticks infected with various European and North American species of Borrelia.
They found evidence of rapid bacterial transmission following a bite, with infection occurring within 24 hours of an adult tick bite and sometimes even sooner for nymph bites. This is a timely reminder of the importance of removing ticks as soon as possible after being bitten to prevent infection.
