Endometriosis: Risk of Bladder Pain Syndrome/Interstitial Cystitis increased

A new Neurology & Urodynamics study has demonstrated a link between endometriosis and a subsequent diagnosis of bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC).

In this study, researchers aimed to determine the risk of BPS/IC among women with endometriosis compared to the general population during a 3-year period following the diagnosis. The study is the largest nationwide population-based study, investigating the relationship between endometriosis and subsequent risk of developing BPS/IC.

Beneficial Bacteria on the Skin of Mice Accelerates Wound Healing

According to new research from scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health,  Beneficial bacteria on the skin of lab mice work with the animals' immune systems to defend against disease-causing microbes and accelerate wound healing . The study findings were published in the  Cell .

Clinical practice guidelines in India

In spite of the increasing importance of guidelines in India and the growing interest in the use of evidence in them, almost nothing is known about the development and quality of Indian guidelines, and how evidence is used in the guideline development process. In the present study, experts aimed to fill this knowledge gap with respect to Indian guidelines for four conditions with highest disease burden in India.

Paper-based Test to Diagnose TB

In a new study reported in the ACS Sensors, scientists have developed a colourimetric sensing strategy employing gold nanoparticles and a paper-based analytical platform for the diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB). By utilizing the surface plasmon resonance effect, they were able to monitor changes in the colour of a gold nanoparticle colloid based on the effects of single-stranded DNA probe molecules hybridizing with targeted double-stranded TB DNA.
