In this study, the mineralized bone, osteocytes form a multifunctional mechanosensitive network orchestrating bone remodelling. A preserved osteocyte population is a crucial determinant of bone quality. Mineralization of the bone matrix was determined using backscattered electron imaging.
A special program that involves balance and eye movement exercises may help people with multiple sclerosis (MS) with their balance problems and fatigue, according to a study published in Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
The study is based on the review outcomes and experience of artificial urinary sphincter implantation for patients with refractory urinary incontinence from different causes.
A team from the University of Delaware and University of California, San Diego recently uncovered new insights about how E. coli bacteria mutate in response to a life-threatening challenge . The results were published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
Researchers have found that elevated levels of chlorinated lipids are linked to sepsis, lung injury and death. The study finding, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight, may offer a way to diagnose and treat sepsis earlier, saving lives and avoiding serious side effects.
Adult full-thickness cutaneous wound repair suffers from an imbalanced immune response, leading to nonfunctional reconstructed tissue and fibrosis. Although various treatments have been reported, the immune-mediated tissue regeneration driven by biomaterial offers an attractive regenerative strategy for damaged tissue repair.
Pneumococcal vaccination yields a satisfactory antibody response in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc), but synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) might reduce the vaccine response in these individuals, according to a study published in Rheumatology.

Health Care Workers (HCWs) are known to be at risk of acquiring tuberculosis in the workplace. In response to this risk, the WHO published guidelines for prevention of TB in health care facilities and policy on TB infection control. In India, studies have also reported an increased risk of TB among HCWs. The government has issued airborne infection control recommendations for healthcare settings. However, due to structural, administrative, and behavioral factors, implementation of these guidelines has been poor.
In this study, researchers conduct work employs 20 male subjects in a 7-day−6° head-down tilted (HDT) bed rest model to simulate physiological effects under weightlessness condition, and use behavioral, electrophysiological techniques to compare the changes of mental rotation ability (MR ability) before and after short-term simulated weightlessness state.
A new study reports that both the epidemiological knowledge of general practitioners' and the electronic surveillance systems should be improved. There is a need to develop the electronic infrastructure of primary care. More and regular control is also expected by the health care authorities, beside the synthesis of professional and governmental expectations and regulations.
