Research team from Columbia University have worked on dermatology. Initially, they focused on developing a molecular taxonomy for hair disorders. The taxonomy will be useful for diagnostic sequencing of patients with diseases affecting their hair follicles. It will also improve the characterization of hair follicle biology and pave the way for new precision medicine treatments for hair diseases.

In this study, The United Nations calls Yemen the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with 8 million people on the brink of famine. Yemen, one of the Arab world's poorest countries, is embroiled in a proxy war between the Houthi armed movement, allied with Iran, and a U.S.-backed military coalition headed by Saudi Arabia. At least 471 people in Yemen are believed to have been infected with diphtheria, killing one in 10 of them since the outbreak began in mid-August, the World Health Organization (WHO)
According to a recent study, breast cancer is a growing epidemic in India. It could kill 76,000 women a year by 2020. It claimed more than 70,000 lives in 2012. At the heart of the issue is the country's rapid economic development, which has made Indian women more susceptible to the disease, without building the infrastructure to prevent and detect it. But the good news is that boosting breast cancer awareness and encouraging early detection could play a significant role in reducing it.
New findings from the University of Pennsylvania suggest a mechanism that may explain how viruses can linger. Products of the viral infection called defective viral genomes (DVGs) which have been known to be involved in triggering an immune response, can also kick off a molecular pathway that keeps infected cells alive, the researchers discovered.
According to this study, researchers took record on the academic rank of emergency medicine and to develop the diversity. Gender, racial, and ethnic disparities, about academic rank and compensation, continue to exist among academic emergency medicine physicians despite a move by leading organizations of emergency medicine. This study has been published in Academic Emergency Medicine (AEM).
New research presented at the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) Conference reported that scientists have developed a method for better tracking how nurses in an intensive care unit (ICU) spend their workday.
In a study published in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, researchers from NSW and the University of South Australia reveal that errors involving opioids are almost three times higher than previously reported in other healthcare settings.
Researchers have developed a new gel formulation for the treatment of erectile dysfunction . This gel formulation contains nitrates or nitroglycerin that is being used to treat angina chest pain and also an important ingredient in making explosives. The study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine .
An old drug supercharged by the University of Queensland has come up with a new antibiotic that could destroy some of the world's most dangerous superbugs.
At the neonatology ward of the Vienna General Hospital (Medical University Vienna), physicians compared two mixtures of intravenous lipids for nutrition with support coming from the FWF. The researchers found no amelioration with respect to bile-flow complications in extremely low birth weight preterm babies in incubators, but they did discover more mature brain waves.
A new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, has shown that a virus injected directly into the bloodstream can reach tumors deep inside the brain and switch on the body's own defense system to attack them.
The first clinical study of a low-cost, hand-held jaundice detector invented by Rice University students could not have come at a better time for NEST360°, an international team of scientists, doctors, and global health experts preparing for a Dec. 11 competition for $100 million from the MacArthur Foundation. The money would allow the team to carry out its visionary plan to halve the number of newborn deaths in African hospitals within 10 years.
