Researchers have shown that changes in gene expression in different tissues triggered by death can be used to predict the time of death of an individual. The study published in Nature Communications suggested that by analyzing a few readily available tissues (for example lung or skin tissue), the post-mortem interval (time elapsed since death) can be determined with considerable accuracy and may have implications for forensic analyses.

In this study, researchers developed techniques for several uses such as Fluorescence optical imaging techniques have revolutionized the field of cardiac electrophysiology and advanced our understanding of complex electrical activities such as arrhythmias. However, traditional monocular optical mapping systems, despite having high spatial resolution, are restricted to a two-dimensional (2D) field of view.
The U.S Food and Drug Administration approved durvalumab (Imfinzi) for the treatment of patients with stage III non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors are unresectable and whose cancer has not progressed after treatment with chemotherapy and radiation (chemoradiation).
According to a new study published in Digestive Diseases and Sciences, people with celiac disease who are extremely vigilant about not ingesting gluten may perceive that their quality of life is reduced.
Adding either of the potent gametocytocidal drugs primaquine and methylene blue to certain antimalarial combinations can safely block human-to-mosquito transmission and may be used for P. falciparum malaria control and elimination, according to new study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.
Scientists have identified gene variants that play a significant role in how women with ovarian cancer process chemotherapy. The research showed that the genes we inherit can have a significant impact on how the body processes chemotherapy drugs, which may lead to different clinical outcomes for ovarian cancer patients.
According to a team of researchers from the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, a new gene mutation could be responsible for ovarian cancers and this could be passed on from fathers to their daughters. The study was published in the recent issue of the journal PloS Genetics.
Guided exercise with a physical therapist after breast-cancer surgery to remove lymphatic tissue helps women quickly regain full range of arm motion, according to a study presented at the 2018 Cancer Survivorship Symposium in Orlando, Florida
Surgeons are treating patients with a new type of hip implant that could lead to better outcomes for younger, more active people requiring surgery.
In this study, researchers determined that emergency medicine became recognized as a specialty in the Kingdom of Bahrain. In the last fifteen years emergency medicine has widely established itself and developed rapidly in the Kingdom. The three main emergency departments are: Salmanyia Medical Complex (SMC), Royal Medical Services of Bahrain Defence Force (RMS-BDF) and King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH) are now fully equipped and operated by most of board certified emergency physicians.
In a study published in the scientific journal Clinical Cancer Research, researchers from Karolinska Institutet have explored NK cell-based immunotherapy in patients with treatment-resistant leukemia. The team has shown that the new therapy is effective against several types of leukemia.
A new study published in the journal Cell Stem Cell, conducted by scientists from Stanford University, revealed that when the lab mice were injected with inactivated induced pluripotent stem cells, there was a powerful immune response against lung, breast, and skin cancers. The vaccine also prevented animals with removed tumors from relapsing.
