Autoimmune disease, characterized by the host's immune response against self-antigens, manifests in more than 100 different types and affects more than 10% of the world's population, causing significant morbidity and high financial burden. Psoriasis (PS), is amongst the most common autoimmune diseases affecting approximately 2% of people globally, while it can also be a great model disease for the development of pharmacogenetic as well as pharmacogenomic markers of treatment response, with ready access to objectively validated clinical outcome measures as well as ready access to diseased tissue.
Health technology assessment (HTA) provides a globally accepted and structured approach to synthesizing evidence for cost and clinical effectiveness alongside ethical and equity considerations to form the basis for evidence-based priority setting and policy decisions.
A novel study suggests that a new drug belonging to anti-cancer drug class of medicines known as HIF-2a inhibitors was beneficial to cure kidney cancer. HIF-2a inhibitor shows promising treatment for metastatic kidney cancer. The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology
Some studies have documented troubling declines in empathy during medical training — the steepest of which are believed to occur between the second and third years of medical school, when students begin clinical training and empathetic communication is critical. However, a new study published in Medical Education challenges the common perception that empathy declines during medical training.
A new study in EBioMedicine by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and the Medical University of Vienna, Austria suggests that immune response in early childhood to a handful of allergen molecules can predict the onset of allergic rhinitis and asthma in adolescence. These findings could accelerate the development of preventive strategies and novel treatments for respiratory allergy in children
Children of mothers who drink large amounts of sugary beverages during pregnancy and those with high dietary intake of fructose in early childhood may be at increased risk of developing asthma in mid-childhood, according to the findings of a study published online in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.
In Nepal, hypothermia is a major risk factor for newborn survival, but the country’s public healthcare sector has insufficient capacity to improve newborn survival given the burden imposed by the distance to health facilities and cost. Low-cost technology to provide newborn thermal care in resource-limited environments exists but lacks effective distribution channels.
A study published in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology reported that the first child who had a successful hand transplant also is the first child in whom scientists have detected massive changes in how sensations from the hands are represented in the brain.
The present study aimed to explore the relationship between serum LOXL2 levels and AF. Fifty-four AF patients and 32 control subjects were enrolled in the study. High-density three-dimensional electroanatomic mapping was performed, and mean bipolar voltage was assessed in AF patients. LOXL2 levels were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. All patients underwent echocardiography to assess left atrium size and left ventricle function.
According to a secondary analysis of a randomized trial, use of a retropubic mid-urethral sling leads to higher stress-specific continence rates at one and two years than does Burch retropubic urethropexy, in women undergoing sacrocolpopexy. The findings of the study were published in Obstetrics & Gynecology
The cause of type 2 diabetes is known as insulin resistance, it resists on cells on and cells stop responding to commands. Then the commands from the hormone which regulates glucose storage. Prevention of diabetes and treating them is done by restoring insulin sensitivity. An insulin-sensitizing drugs in the market which also stimulate the production of lipids(fats), and leading to many serious side effects. This new study has published in Cell.
