A study led by researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle shows that, in preterm animal models, inflammation due to infection can disrupt the activity of genes that are crucial for normal development of the heart. The study findings were published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology .

Chronic kidney disease ( CKD ) is accompanied by inflammation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of 6-month supplementation with omega-3 acids on selected markers of inflammation in patients with CKD stages 1-3.
A new type of gene therapy delivered using a virus could protect healthy tissues from the harmful side-effects of radiotherapy after cancer treatment, a new study reports.
In this present study, scientists declared that after the successful return of 4,100 pounds of science and cargo aboard the SpaceX Dragon this past weekend, the crew living and working on the International Space Station returned to scientific operations as they began the second week of January. As crewmembers continued to prepare for an upcoming spacewalk, they also explored research in the fields of human research, education and plant biology.
New research published in Schizophrenia Bulletin has reported that oral clozapine and olanzapine long-acting injection (LAI) emerged as the most effective treatments for preventing hospitalization among patients with chronic and first-episode schizophrenia in a large, long-term comparative effectiveness study.
Forensic researchers from North Carolina State University have identified a more accurate way to assess an individual's age at death, based on the bone mineral density of the femur. The technique could be used to help identify human remains.
According to study published in ACS Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, artificial sweeteners are used in diet drinks and foods but also could someday be used as treatments targeting carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX), a protein associated with aggressive cancers. Although several drugs have been approved that target similar forms of CA, they aren't selective and may cause side effects, including vomiting and fatigue.
A new study at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine will use social media, specifically Twitter, to engage this target group in discussions on the blunt use and the health hazards.
According to this study, Hisayama Study is an ongoing, population-based epidemiologic study in the town of Hisayama, which is in a suburb of the Fukuoka metropolitan area on Kyushu Island, Japan. Whether the intake of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or arachidonic acid (AA) affects the risk of cancer remains unclear, and the association between the serum EPA:AA ratio and cancer risk has not been fully evaluated in general populations.
In a scientific first, researchers at the Gladstone Institutes turned skin cells from mice into stem cells by activating a specific gene in the cells using CRISPR technology. The innovative approach offers a potentially simpler technique to produce the valuable cell type and provides important insights into the cellular reprogramming process.
In a new discovery, the research team has revealed an unknown clockwork mechanism within the body that controls the creation of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. The finding sheds light on iron-restricted anaemias that leave millions of people weak, tired and unable to concentrate – and it may point the way to better treatments as well.
According to results from the CARE-ROP study, Low doses of anti-VEGF therapy with ranibizumab are effective in infants with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The study findings were published in the JAMA Pediatrics
