A new study published in the JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery has showed that disagreement between physician- and patient-reported scar assessment is not uncommon. Neither patients nor clinicians consistently detect differences in scars using current scar assessment instruments. Patients and physicians differ in their evaluation of surgical scars. Scar instruments that better integrate both patient and clinician scar ratings may aid in determining the most salient features of cutaneous scars.

A new study researched that patients with acute cardiac syndrome (ACS) and cardiogenic shock (CS), who live far from the only cardiac catheterization facility in Nova Scotia, Canada, have a survival rate about half that of patients with more direct access. The study published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
Children who are fitter and whose fitness improves during childhood and adolescence have better lung function as young adults, according to a large study published in the European Respiratory Journal.
Researchers team established that the migration of excitation energy greatly affects the upconversion dynamics. They significantly improved the fundamental understanding of photon upconversion in nanoparticles. They described 'dopant ions spatially separated' (DISS) nanostructures can be used for tailoring the upconversion dynamics. The study have got publication in Angewandte Chemie.
Researchers speculated that oral microbiota composition is associated with general frailty , in addition to the relationship between gut microbiota and general health condition.
Researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Johns Hopkins University carried a study that the new non-invasive biomarkers able to identify the Parkinson's disease from the speech of patients.
A new study estimated the global amount of phosphorus from human activities that entered Earth's freshwater bodies from 2002 to 2010.The study was published in the journal Water Resources Research.
Hypertension is the strongest modifiable risk factor for subcortical ischemic changes and is also a risk factor for Alzheimer’s dementia. Researchers used neuroimaging to investigate the pathological basis of early cognitive symptoms in patients with hypertension. To study the pathogenic basis of cognitive symptoms in the setting of hypertension, researchers recruited subjects with hypertension and Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) of 0.5 without dementia and used neuroimaging markers to infer the presence of AD pathology or vascular pathology
In a new study published in the journal Science, researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science have revealed the existence of 10 previously unknown immune defense mechanisms in bacteria.
A study with new discovery shown by researchers from the University of Bonn have clarified a surprising dual function of ceramide synthase. The enzyme not only catalyzes a central step of the production of vital lipids. It also has the ability to turn genes involved in lipid metabolism on or off. The study is being published in the journal Cell Reports.
A new Tel Aviv University study published in Addiction finds that only eight out of 100 smokers who take smoking cessation medications will have benefited from taking smoking medications after one year's time. The researchers conclude that this low rate of success should lead policymakers to find better methods to help smokers quit — and to prevent young people from taking up smoking, to begin with.
Researchers used machine learning techniques, including natural language processing algorithms, to identify clinical concepts in radiologist reports for CT scans, according to a study published in the journal Radiology. The technology is an important first step in the development of artificial intelligence that could interpret scans and diagnose conditions.
