A study estimates that posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is the largest and strongest ligament in the human knee, and the primary posterior stabilizer. Recent anatomy and biomechanical studies have provided an improved understanding of PCL function. PCL injuries are typically combined with other ligamentous, meniscal and chondral injuries. Stress radiography has become an important and validated objective measure in surgical decision making and post-operative assessment.

In the new study presented in PLOS Computational Biology, using a computational model of the human immune system, scientists have shown that efforts to combat sepsis might be more effective if they targeted multiple steps in the molecular processes that drive the illness.
As the national conversation about marijuana legalization continues, an important question is how changing marijuana policy may influence the use of other substances, such as alcohol.
According to this study, researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the University of Florida, they observed that a drug commonly used to control high blood pressure may also help prevent type 1 diabetes in up to 60% of those at risk for the disease. The study was published online in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
In this study, researchers developed spectroscopic techniques to examine condensed phase dynamics of biological, chemical and functional nanomaterial systems. As they reach maturity, the variety of frequency domains that can be explored has vastly increased, with experimental techniques capable of correlating excitation and emission frequencies from the terahertz through to the ultraviolet.
A new study findings published in the New England Journal of Medicine have revealed that the novel monoclonal antibody product daratumumab has been propelled to the front line for multiple myeloma treatment. The results show that it also improves outcomes in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who are ineligible for transplant, when used in combination with triple therapy.
The Uttarakhand government has been administering polio drops to children every day at entry points on the Nepal border for the last four years, officials said.
According to the study, researchers examined the mechanisms of skin inflammation produced by different pathogens. The clinical presentations of skin diseases produced by different pathogens, as American tegumentary leishmaniasis (ATL) and sporotrichosis can be similar and possibly influenced by the skin immune system (SIS).
Women who work as cleaners or regularly use cleaning sprays or other cleaning products at home appear to experience a greater decline in lung function over time than those who did not clean, according to a study published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (AJRCCM).
