Fiber resists digestion by the body but is readily eaten by bacteria in the gut. The fibre amount in diet could influence weight gain, blood sugar, insulin sensitivity, and colon health. Two studies with mice published in the journal Cell Host & Microbe showed the effects of fibre on the entire body.
Researchers develop a high-precision, sensor-based surgical robot for spinal operations together with industry partners. Their project is being funded with two million Swiss francs, sponsored by the "BRIDGE" programme of the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Commission for Technology and Innovation.
Researchers have demonstrated new instrument for knowing the Space information, NASA has established an advanced new spectroscopy instrument to aid the search for extraterrestrial life. A new instrument is developed for detecting compounds and minerals related to biological activity more quickly and with greater sensitivity than previous instruments. While the evidence of outside the life of earth has not been known from past and present study revealed an important part of the NASA Planetary Exploration Program. This study was published in the Optical Society Journal Applied Optics.
There is a need to prioritize scientifically silent countries like Bhutan since important knowledge deficits on epilepsy may be present.Besides, such knowledge deficits are not explainable through insufficient time and undergraduate training and therefore require the need to re-appraise the approach to teaching medical professionals about epilepsy. While, such deficits can likely (and easily) be overcome through providing additional (structured, systematic, organized) professional knowledge. Contrary to widespread by-default beliefs against “public image” of epilepsy, in Bhutan, epilepsy is likely to be socially acceptable.
The genome-wide association study, conducted by a UCL-led collaboration of 65 academics in 11 countries and funded by Alzheimer's Society and the Lewy Body Society, is published in The Lancet Neurology. according to the first large-scale genetic study of this common type of dementia, Dementia with Lewy bodies has a unique genetic profile, distinct from those of Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease
Although the current clinical guidelines recommend lower blood pressure targets for the general population, high blood pressure control remains elusive for most. A new study published in Annals of Internal Medicine suggested that patients with hypertension could best achieve blood pressure control with a multilevel, multicomponent approach that includes physician- and non-physician-led interventions.
New research from biologists at the University of California San Diego studied how honey bees fared with exposure to neonicotinoids, pesticides broadly used in agriculture, along with limited nutrient sources, scenarios that are commonly found in agricultural areas. The study was published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society
New research published in The Lancet revealed that short-term exposure to air pollution in built-up areas could prevent the positive effects on the heart and lungs that can be gained from walking.
A research team at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Michigan Medicine is studying infants at the highest risk of sleep disorders, including those with chronic illnesses. The team's latest research focuses on newborns with spina bifida, which is the most common permanently disabling birth defect in the U.S. The study findings was published in the Journal of Pediatrics
The recent development – scheme of establishing (Drug Treatment Clinics) DTCs – is likely to be much more successful since it is based almost entirely upon funding support from the central government, with mentoring provided by the academic institutions. Eventually, issues regarding the sustainability of this initiative will have to be considered. There is a need to continuously monitor the implementation and ensure ongoing support and nurturance to the scheme. It is high time that addiction treatment gets mainstreamed into general health care.
Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA), have demonstrated an immunosuppressive drug used for treating rheumatoid arthritis, for a current melanoma treatment halted the growth of melanoma cancer cells in mice. This study was recently published in the journal Oncotarget.
