Mangrove killifish flourishes in both freshwater and water with twice as much salt as the ocean. It can live up to two months on land, breathing through its skin, before returning to the water with a series of spectacular 180-degree flips. And it is one of only two vertebrates that fertilizes itself. It has a remarkable amount of genetic diversity across its species.The study findings are published in journal Genome

Ironically, the ratcheting down of opioid prescriptions may be aggravating the problems it was meant to reduce. An agency press release in the spring stated that a requirement to deny coverage above certain dose limits would not be implemented for 2018. This changes response to a letter signed by 83 professionals, including four who worked on the CDC guideline.This is published in Boston Globe health.
Now, researchers at the University of Copenhagen have successfully devised a model that accounts for synergists. The model can serve as a useful tool for environmental legislation. The study findings were published in the published in Environmental Sciences.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), often known as emphysema and usually caused by smoking, is a common cause of hospital admissions and death and affects an estimated 100,000 people in New Zealand. University of Otago researchers have found that the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in New Zealand frequently does not conform to international guidelines.
In a new study published in Cell Systems, researchers said that a new chip etched with fluid channels sends blood samples through a hydrodynamic maze to separate out rare circulating cancer cells into a relatively clean stream for analysis.
A study found that elevated TSH levels can be a sign that the thyroid gland is underactive. Women who have unexplained infertility were nearly twice as likely to have higher levels of a hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland than women who did not conceive due to known issues with their male partner's sperm count. This study was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
From Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie, arsenic is often the poison of choice in popular whodunits. But in ultra-low dosage, and in the right form, this naturally occurring chemical element can be a potent force against most common and aggressive type of deadly brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), according to the study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Research.
Monte Carlo simulations provide accurate models of nuclear medicine imaging systems as they can properly account for the full physics of photon transport.The accuracy of the model included in the maximum-likelihood-expectation-maximization (ML-EM)reconstruction limits the overall accuracy of the reconstruction results. In this paper, we present a Monte Carlo-based ML-EM reconstructionmethod for pinhole single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) that has been incorporated into the SIMIND Monte Carlo program.
In a study on rabbits, the researchers observed that exposure to BPA during pregnancy caused chronic inflammation in the offspring's intestines and liver. The researchers also noted signs of increased gut permeability — or leaky gut — and a decrease in the diversity of gut bacteria and anti-inflammatory bacterial metabolites, such as short-chain fatty acids, said Jairam K.P. Vanamala, associate professor of food sciences, Penn State. The study was published in the mSystems
Any chance to make surgery safer, and avoid complications could have a major impact on both the nation's health and bottom line. In a new paper in JAMA Surgery, a team from the University of Michigan lays out the case for a Value Partnership model that could do just that: the one that surgeons and nurses in 72 hospitals across Michigan have quietly built over the last decade.
Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have discovered a potential treatment target to prevent chronic kidney disease patients from developing blood clots without causing bleeding complications — an unwanted and perplexing side effect. The study was appeared in the Science Translational Medicine.
The study developed a computer algorithm using gene expression data of Chinese hamster ovary cells, a cell line often used by biopharmaceutical researchers for medical research, to optimize the production of proteins in those cells.
