A research published in Scientific Reports. for the first time, Ubogu and UAB colleagues describe the transcriptome of these specialized cells called endoneurial endothelial cells, finding 12,881 RNA transcripts that define the normal human blood-nerve barrier.
Each year in the U.S. some 200,000 babies, struggling to survive their early days in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), require umbilical cord catheters to take food and medicine. While these tiny tubes serve as a lifeline, they can also be a conduit for harmful bacteria to enter the bloodstream. The resulting infection, which affects roughly one in five babies with an umbilical cord catheter, means a longer and more expensive hospital stay and a significantly increased risk of developmental delays, or even death.

Researchers have investigated the association of clinical variables and quality of care measures with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR +) and albuminuria (Alb +) in 157,595 T2DM individuals participating to the Italian Association of Clinical Diabetologists ( AMD ) Annals Initiative, stratified by age.
In this study, researchers have evaluated the disease severity via the Severity Assessment of Hidradenitis Suppurativa score. The variation in both clinical appearance and responses to diverse treatment options emphasize the importance of an accurate, clinically relevant, yet easy-to-use scoring system in hidradenitis suppurativa.
For infants born at 33 weeks' gestation or earlier, Family Integrated Care (FICare) in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) is associated with improved infant and parent outcomes, according to a study published online in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health.
