In a new study published in Biochemical Journal, researchers have discovered with potential human health impacts in a parchment tubeworm, the marine invertebrate Chaetopterus sp., and found that the tubeworm have a ferritin with the fastest catalytic performance ever described, nearly eight times faster than that of human capabilities.
The study, published in Science Translational Medicine, describes that methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection impairs the ability of lymphatic vessels to pump lymphatic fluid to lymph nodes in mouse models, which may contribute to the frequent recurrences of MRSA infection experienced by patients.
According to a new study published in Pediatrics, adolescents with severe obesity who had bariatric surgery showed significant improvements in cardiovascular disease risk factors. Before bariatric surgery, 335 of the study participants had three or more defined cardiovascular disease risk factors. However, three years post-surgery only 5% of study participants had three or more risk factors; representing significant reduction in the overall likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease later in life.

In a new research, scientists have identified that older people walk at a slower speed and tire more quickly because of loss of strength and mass in leg muscles. Using computer simulations the team found that these physiological changes explain the slower walking speed preferred by the elderly, and that a focus on building up these leg muscles may be the only effective way to improve elderly walking. The study findings published in The Journal of Physiology.
Researchers determined whether the longitudinal course of Parkinson's disease in patients with the LRRK2 mutation differs from the longitudinal course of PD in patients without the mutation . Patients with the LRRK2 mutation demonstrate slower decline in motor functioning than patients without the mutation, which may have implications for the use of emerging disease-modifying agents.
The antibiotics trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole ( Bactrim ) and nitrofurantoin ( Macrobid ) have been linked to a small risk for birth defects in pregnant women when given in the first trimester. According to a report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, despite the risk, many pregnant women are still getting these antibiotics. The study report was published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report
A new study from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center examines what may cause chronic back pain in runners and the exercises to help prevent it.
Researchers have found that the immune system has been shown to react to fast foods containing excess salt and calories and this activation of the immune system to fast foods is similar to its reaction to bacterial infections. The study findings reported in the latest issue of the journal Cell.
