In this study, researchers examined the analgesic effect and safety of the application of different doses of nalbuphine in patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) for patients undergoing subtotal gastrectomy. The incidence of gastric cancer in recent years has been increasing, and surgical resection remains the main treatment.

Adding the chemotherapy docetaxel to standard hormone therapy for both metastatic and nonmetastatic prostate cancer is a win-win-win because it improves patients' overall quality of life (QoL), reduces the need for subsequent therapy, and is cost-effective, according to a new modeling study from the investigators of a major clinical trial.
A new study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine , explains why the risk of osteoarthritis increases as we age and offers a potential avenue for developing new therapies to maintain healthy joints. The study's findings suggest that FOXO proteins are responsible for the maintenance of healthy cells in the cartilage of our joints.
An expert committee of Europe's medicines watchdog recommended that a drug used to treat epilepsy and linked to malformations in children not used in pregnancy.
A new study published in the Nature Communications has revealed that the data indicate that possession of antibody responses to a group of P. falciparum proteins increases the likelihood of antibody-mediated transmission inhibition.
A new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease suggests that the lower the fitness level, the faster the deterioration of vital nerve fibers in the brain. This deterioration results in cognitive decline, including memory issues characteristic of dementia patients.
A new study, published in Cell Death & Disease, reveals that intestinal blood vessel cells may play an important role in radiation-induced intestinal injury, and it confirms that a potential radioprotective drug, dimethyloxalylglycine (DMOG), suppresses the intestine's responses to radiation injury.
A study determined that in the spaceflight under weightlessness condition, human's brain function may be affected by the changes of physiological effects along with the distribution of blood and body fluids to the head. This variation of brain function will influence the performance of astronauts and therefore create possible harm to flight safety.
Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute have discovered new information about how motor proteins called dyneins interact with another protein called dynactin to transport molecules to different parts of a cell.
Scientists at Imperial College London have become the first in the world to test how pathogens interact with artificial human organs.
A new study estimates that young children are particularly vulnerable to otitis media (OM) which globally affects over 80% of children below the age of 3 years. Although there is convincing evidence for an association between environmental tobacco smoke exposure and Otitis media in children, the relationship with ambient air pollution is not clear.
