Millions of Americans hear ringing in their ears — a condition called tinnitus — but a new study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, shows an experimental device could help quiet the phantom sounds by targeting unruly nerve activity in the brain.

A new study on Asian tiger mosquito was presented at the 66th American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) Annual Meeting. The invasive Asian tiger mosquito now rapidly spreading in parts of the U.S. and Europe may have been significantly underestimated as a potential source of Zika and dengue virus infections — and for one simple reason: they were underfed.
Research on local anesthetic was examined from the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, Patients who are given a local anesthetic before having a venous cannula inserted have a clearly reduced sensation of pain when larger gauge cannulas are used. Compared with intradermal lidocaine infusion, the use of vapocoolant spray has the advantage that the rate of venepuncture failures is lower.
The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to investigate the relationship between intraoperative urine output during major abdominal surgery and the development of the AKI and to identify an optimal threshold for predicting the differential risk of AKI.
Intensive surveillance including a dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) exam every six months was far more effective in detecting breast cancer in younger women with a high-risk genetic profile than an annual mammogram, according to a research team based at the University of Chicago Medicine and the University of Washington, Seattle.
In a new research published in Chemistry: A European Journal, scientists have designed a new dye, JULBD6, which could be used to observe the electrical activity of neurons in the brain and could lead to finding a new and more efficient way of treating neurological diseases.
Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University are creating 3D-printed models of children's hearts. They are printed based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of real patients. These models are used as simulators for cardiac surgeons to plan and pre-work forthcoming operations.
For the first time, researchers have documented that the same period of inactivity has a greater and more severe impact on the muscle power of the lower limbs of the old people than young people, which is essential for movements like climbing the stairs. The study findings were published in The Journal of Physiology.
In patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who are receiving biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) and in remission, relapse is less likely when bDMARDs are tapered rather than discontinued, a systematic review and meta-analysis published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
In a new study published in Scientific Reports , Japanese researchers report, CUBIC , a tissue clearing and 3D imaging technique including a tissue processing that makes human organs transparent , provides a better assessment of lesions for pathological diagnosis .
Researcher’s team revealed that in laboratory tests and animal models, trehalose develops the virulence of epidemic C. difficile lineages that predominate in patient infections. An increasing frequency and severity of healthcare-associated outbreaks caused by bacterium Clostridium difficile have been linked to the widely used food additive trehalose. This study has been published in Journal Nature.
