In this study, researchers declined that it’s a harsh flu season. A new study about the flu and other viruses spread. The epidemic hasn't hit the University of Maryland College Park yet; students are just getting back from winter break. But in the close quarters of dorm rooms and cafeterias and study groups, the flu will come.

A new study, published in the Military Medical Research , has shown that therapeutic horseback riding may be a clinically effective intervention for alleviating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in military veterans.
In this study, researchers examined the effect of left lateral tilting on maternal hemodynamics after SAB. Post-spinal hypotension is a common maternal complication during cesarean delivery. Aortocaval compression by the gravid uterus has been assumed as a precipitating factor for post-spinal hypotension. The role of left lateral tilting position in improving maternal cardiac output after subarachnoid block (SAB) is unclear.
The antimalarial medicines that are currently used cannot do much to stop this because the parasites remain in the patient's blood for a long time after treatment. This means that other mosquitos can be infected with the parasite if they bite the patient.
According to research presented at the Society of Thoracic Surgeons annual meeting, patients with esophageal cancer who opt out of surgery when it is recommended may not live as long as their peers who have surgery.
In this study, researchers have established a new method for improving T cell manufacture by focusing on the materials involved in this process. Their study uses a polymer mesh to activate the T cells, a critical step for their production. This approach simplifies processing compared to systems in use today. In addition, making the fibers out of a mechanically soft material improved T cell growth, outperforming the current gold standard on several fronts. The study is published in Advanced Biosystems.
Production of conventional vaccines, which involves the use of live-attenuated or purified protein subunits of pathogens, is a long and complex process. Nucleic acid vaccines are safer alternatives, and allow easy adjustment of antigen to target specific pathogens. DNA-based vaccines pose the risks of the DNA being incorporated into the genome of cells and anti-DNA antibody generation. Hence, RNA-based vaccines have distinct advantages and are considered safer.
Researchers from the University of Rochester Medical Center found that impairing a rare group of cells in the small intestine allows gut bacteria to invade the organ and cause major inflammation. The study findings were published in the journal Cell Host & Microbe.
Researchers reported at Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis that Ublituximab is a novel glycol-engineered anti-CD20 antibody, demonstrated rapid and robust B cell depletion, a profound reduction in gadolinium (Gd)-enhancing lesions, and clinical stability at week 24 in a phase 2a study of patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS).
According to a new study, researchers team have solved the crystal structure for an enzyme that plays a key role in DNA methylation, the process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule. DNA methylation alters gene expression. This fundamental cellular mechanism critically influences plant, animal, and human development. This study is published in Nature.
Treatment with an investigational androgen receptor inhibitor significantly delayed the development of metastasis in patients with prostate cancer that had become resistant to standard androgen-deprivation therapy.
An official watchdog has warned that cuts to forensic science work are increasing the risk of miscarriages of justice. Innocent people could be wrongly convicted or criminals could walk free if crucial evidence is missed due to falling standards in the sector.
