According to new study, researchers have conducted comparative study i.e., census tract data on socioeconomic deprivation, a collection of neighborhood-level variables of wealth, education, occupation and housing patterns and heart failure rates among 27,078 middle-aged participants from South-eastern states. This study is published in American Heart Association journal, Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

Researchers from Osaka University have developed new green fluorescent protein (GFP) that could withstand low pH environment for imaging of acidic organelles. The findings were published in Cell Chemical Biology.
A team led by scientists at the University of Cambridge describe using a combination of imaging techniques to examine how patterns of tau relate to the wiring of the brain in 17 patients with Alzheimer's disease, compared to controls. The study was published in the journal Brain
It is well known that healthy eating increases our general sense of wellbeing. In the recent study published in Nature Communications, researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have discovered that a fibre-rich diet can have a positive influence on chronic inflammatory joint diseases, leading to stronger bones.
A study from American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA)'s AANA Journal, "Lyme Disease and Anesthesia Considerations," discusses possible effects of anesthesia on Lyme disease patients undergoing surgery.
A new study published in the journal Cancer Cell has showed that stress accelerates the development of pancreatic cancer by triggering the release of "fight-or-flight" hormones. Beta-blockers–commonly used medications that inhibit these hormones–were found to increase survival in a mouse model of the disease. An additional analysis of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer revealed that those who were taking selective beta-blockers lived approximately two-thirds longer than those who were not taking the medications.
According to a study published in the open access journal BMC Public Health, elderly men across Europe and the US spend less time on housework than elderly women. Researchers found that elderly women on average spent almost five hours a day doing housework compared to only around three hours a day for elderly men. The study also found that while those who did more housework felt healthier, women who did long hours of housework combined with too much or too little sleep reported poorer health.
The study, titled "Impact of Seminal Plasma Zinc and Serum Zinc Level on Semen Parameter of Fertile and Infertile Males," was done at the Center for Assisted Reproduction, a tertiary infertility center and at the Biochemistry Department of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).
According to researchers from the University of California San Diego have established macrophage "nanosponges" that can safely absorb and remove molecules from the bloodstream that are known to trigger sepsis. These macrophage nanosponges, which are nanoparticles cloaked in the cell membranes of macrophages, have so far improved survival rates in mice with sepsis. This study has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In this study, researcher’s new experimental model of a CSA in a primate was reported; only the blood supply to the brain from the donor body was re-established; the spinal cord and the continuity of other organs were not restored. This experiment was designed to confirm that deep hypothermia can protect the brain and preserve brain function after re-warming during cephalic exchange.
Unigloves new Fortified single use gloves incorporate silver ion technology from BioCote, which has been scientifically proven to destroy 90% of harmful bacteria within just 15 minutes and 99.5% in only two hours.
Microscopic yeasts have been wreaking havoc in hospitals around the world – creeping into catheters, ventilator tubes, and IV lines – and causing deadly invasive infection. One culprit species, Candida auris, is resistant to many antifungals, meaning once a person is infected, there are limited treatment options. But in a recent Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy study, confirmed a new drug compound kills drug-resistant C. auris, both in the laboratory and in a mouse model that mimics human infection.
