'Indecent' Condom Ads on Daytime TV: India Draws Flak for Banning this

India's decision to ban condom ads on daytime television drew widespread ridicule as a retrograde step that threatened progress on sexual and reproductive health. India's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ordered television channels not to air condom adverts between 6 a.m and 10 p.m. as they could be "indecent" and "inappropriate" for children.

In A Helical Protein, Molecular Recognition and Packing Was Detected

A new study on Biomolecules has been demonstrated by showing the Folding of globular proteins entails a similar discrimination. To gain physical insight, we computed the binding affinities of helical structures of the protein Im9 in various native or nonnative configurations by atomic simulations, discovering that partial packing of the Im9 core is frustrated. This frustration is overcome when the entire core of the protein is assembled, consistent with experiment indicating no significant kinetic trapping in Im9 folding.

Rectal Chlamydia and Gonorrhea: Women at-risk were often not tested for it

Fewer than 1 in 1,000 women who undergo genital testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea also undergo rectal testing for those conditions, U.S. researchers report. More than one-third of women (age 18-44 yeras) report ever having had anal intercourse, which puts them at risk for rectal chlamydia and gonorrhea, HIV infection, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and anal cancer.

Thyroid Hormone Develops Angiogenesis In Liver Cancer

Thyroid hormone, 3, 3′, 5-triiodo-l-thyronine (T3), mediates several physiological processes, including embryonic development, cellular differentiation and cell proliferation, via binding to its nuclear thyroid receptors (TR). Angiogenesis is essential for human cancer development. The angiogenic process is balanced by the positive regulator, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the negative regulator, thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1).

A New Form of Self-Harm Behavior in Adolescents

A new Florida Atlantic University (FAU) study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health has reported a new form of self-harm behaviour in adolescents has emerged and is cause for concern. The behaviour: digital self-harm, self-trolling, or self-cyberbullying, where adolescents post, send or share mean things about themselves anonymously online. The concern: it is happening at alarming rates and could be a cry for help.

In Circadian Rhythm, Sense of Smelling Differs

According to a new study, Researchers who are looking at how sleep may influence eating patterns in teens. A person's ability to smell may vary throughout the day in accordance with their circadian rhythm. It has always been apparent that some individuals have a better sense of smell than others, but a new study of 37 teens provides the first direct evidence that within each person, smell sensitivity varies over the course of each day. It tracks with the body's internal day-night cycle, or circadian rhythm. This study got published in Chemical Senses.

EHR Implementation not Satisfied Ophthalmologists

A new study published in JAMA Ophthalmology has revealed that ophthalmologists' perceptions of financial and clinical productivity following electronic health records (EHR) implementation declined. The study results highlight the fact that companies that design EHR systems should further address the efficiency and usability of those systems.
