Brain imaging can identify a greater number of emergency stroke patients

According to a new study, researchers examined that an imaging of brain advancement could identify a greater number of stroke patients who can receive therapy. The study shows that one out of three stroke patients who present with at-risk brain tissue on their scans improve and some may walk out of the hospital saved from what would otherwise have been a devastating brain injury. The study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Novel Gene Regulatory System for Neurological Diseases

New research from Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) is among the first to describe how an mRNA modification occurs in the life of neural stem cells (NSCs). The study was published in  Nature Neuroscience , reveals a novel gene regulatory system that may advance stem cell therapies and gene-targeting treatments for neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and mental health disorders that affect cognitive abilities.

Health Behaviour towards Non-Communicable Diseases in Bangladesh

In recent years, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) have become epidemic in Bangladesh. Behaviour changing interventions are key to prevention and management of NCDs. A great majority of people in Bangladesh have low health literacy, are less receptive to health information, and are unlikely to embrace positive health behaviours.

During Surgeries, Nanosensor Illuminates Cancer Tissue

A study demonstrated new technique and researchers from UT Southwestern Simmons Cancer Center scientists. They started testing a digital nanosensor that lights up cancer tissue to see whether it can improve the accuracy of cancer surgeries, thereby reducing cancer recurrence and surgical morbidity. They developed the sensor, and have integrated it with a clinical camera that allows the surgeon to see the fluorescent areas.

Bronchiolitis Symptoms, root cause revealed

Bronchiolitis is an inflammation of the small airways in the lung. It is responsible for about 130,000 admissions each year. Sometimes these young patients have symptoms reminiscent of a bad cold with a fever, cough and runny nose. Other times, bronchiolitis causes breathing troubles so severe that these children end up in the intensive care unit.
