A type of soil-dwelling bacterium called Streptomyces bottropensis produces a molecule that induces death in melanoma cells, according to a new study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry . The molecule's unique mode of action indicates that it could represent a promising lead for the development of new anticancer drugs.
Aiming to make data repository robust, the Union Health Ministry on Monday launched the Allied and Healthcare Professional Database which will help the government to track the number of professionals and streams of allied and health care professions in the country.
According to the ministry, more than 3, 000 professionals have already registered on the portal during the testing phase.
The study found that both blacks and whites face the similar risk of evolving diabetes when all biological factors for the disease are considered over time. The finding flips long-held beliefs that there is an unexplained or genetic reason why blacks have double the rate of diabetes linked to whites by midlife, which is considered early onset. This study was published in the journal JAMA.
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have developed a small, organ-on-a-chip device that is especially good for modeling atherosclerosis – the constriction of blood vessels that is the leading cause of heart attacks and strokes. The device could potentially help better understand patients atherosclerosis and develop new treatments.
A large percentage of U.S. patients with small-cell lung cancer do not receive chemotherapy with thoracic radiation as the standard-of-care, and in turn have lower overall survival, according to research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The findings, reported in JAMA Oncology, also describe obstacles encountered by patients when receiving cancer treatments, such as their insurance status and socioeconomic factors.
A new study has found that if the HLF (hepatic leukaemia factor) gene that is expressed in immature blood cells does not shut down on time, then it is unable to develop a functional long-term immune system and this could be a very early stage of leukaemia.
Researchers team from the University of Hyderabad in India has enhanced molecular detection at low concentration levels by arranging nanoparticles on nanowires to develop Raman spectroscopy. Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) uses electromagnetic fields to improve Raman scattering and boost sensitivity in standard dyes such as R6G by more than one billionfold. As medicine and pharmacology investigate nanoscale processes, it has become increasingly important to identify and characterize different molecules
Use of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) to treat brain metastases in a variety of cancer types has increased significantly ? but unevenly ? during the past decade, according to a new study published in the Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center a grant worth an estimated $8 million over five years for the establishment of a new center for research into alcohol addiction.
According to a new article published by JAMA Internal Medicine, activity increased among families in a randomized clinical trial as part of a game-based intervention where they could earn points and progress through levels based on step goal achievements.
Researchers team has tried to know the function of proteins and more specifically with enzymes. The DNA of every organism holds the blueprints for building all the proteins it needs for its metabolic processes. While researchers already know what the blueprints look like for most proteins, they do not understand what many of these proteins do in the body.
