FDA Approves Lonhala Magnair for COPD

Lonhala Magnair (glycopyrrolate 25 mcg t.i.d.) is the first nebulized long-acting muscarinic antagonist approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the management of airflow obstruction in adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Protein Analysis for Eye-Disease Treatment

Ateam led by a researcher at the Stanford University School of Medicine demonstrating the potential of precision health. The senior author of the study said, "Analyzing fluid samples from the eye can totally change how we treat patients."  The study findings were appeared in the JCI Insight.

A Bacterium Inhibits Predators with Poison, a Cyanide Defense Uncovered

Microbiologists in South Korea reported that the bacterium Chromobacterium piscinae produces cyanide when under attack from Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus HD100, a microbial predator found in rivers and soils that ingests its prey from the inside out. The researchers found that the prey produced levels of cyanide high enough to inhibit, but not kill, the B. bacteriovorus HD100. The study was published in the mBio

HIV-AIDS: Way To Minimize replication Revealed

Researchers at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUM) have discovered a way to slow viral replication in the gastrointestinal tract of people infected by HIV-AIDS. The study is published in JCI Insight, this might lead to the development of a new therapeutic strategy to supplement antiretroviral therapy (ART), improving the control of viral replication in HIV-infected persons and preventing complications associated with chronic infection.

In the inner ear, Protein Daple synchronizes single-cell and organ-wide directionality

Researchers identified a protein, Daple which interacts with both systems and coordinates single cell and organ-wide directionality. Humans can hear sounds from genetic; it has evolved from million years ago. Sensory "hair cells" in the inner ear have the amazing ability to convert sound waves into electrical signals and transmit them to the brain for processing. This study has published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
