In this study, researchers determined a men who have sex with men (MSM) and heterosexuals are the populations with the fastest growing HIV infection rates in China. They characterize the epidemic growth and age patterns between these two routes from 2004 to 2015 in Chongqing and Shenzhen, China.
Immunotherapy is showing "really durable benefit" in patients with bladder cancer, experts said here at the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (GUCS) 2018. Some patients are living much longer through immunotherapy than through chemotherapy — which is demonstrated by the "tail" at the end of overall survival curves from clinical trials.
According to a new study, the occurrence of sputum smear conversion at the end of 2 months of treatment may be a useful marker for predicting a patient’s multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) treatment outcome.
According to new study, researchers examined a rare type of skin cancer i.e., Merkel cell carcinoma is affecting only a few thousand people each year, compared to tens of thousands with melanoma. The study is published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
According to a study reported in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, patients with severe blockages in leg arteries can sometimes be treated with surgery to reroute blood flow; otherwise, they require amputation. And black patients are more likely than whites to get amputations.

According to this study, researchers was thus to determine the variations of neural stem cells (NSCs) during spaceflight. RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) based transcriptomic profiling of NSCs identified many differentially expressed mRNAs and miRNAs between space and earth groups. Numerous studies have demonstrated that spaceflight can affect many systems of the human body, such as the skeleton system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
