A new study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology revealed that non-Hispanic minorities are 40% less likely to consult the doctor for psoriasis treatment than white Americans, even though they have a severe condition. So psoriasis awareness among those communities would lead to the equitable care and improve the patient outcomes in psoriasis.

According to the findings published in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, researchers showed low mortality and stroke risks in all age groups within 30 days of surgery. The findings were based on analysis of over 1,000 minimally invasive aortic valve replacements and above 400 additional associated procedures performed over a period of five-and-a-half year by Dr. Joseph Lamelas, from Baylor College of Medicine.
Major international guidelines have radically changed their stance on the medicines to diagnose and manage low back pain (LBP). General practitioners (GPs) might recommend non-medicinal approaches (yoga, mindfulness and various types of physiotherapy and psychological therapies) rather than prescribing pain medicines. The study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
A new study published in the journal The Lancet shows the increasing incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in highly industrialized and westernized countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America. So, these countries need to improve the clinical infrastructure and personnel to cope such a complex and costly diseases.
Women undergo risk-reducing mastectomy for preventing breast cancer, but reconstruction appears to be challenging in those with larger breasts. The researchers then developed a two-stage approach where initially breast size is reduced, ‘pre-shaped’ and then followed by mastectomy and reconstruction. This method was found safe and effective; findings were published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Researchers have led two novel studies on the evolutionary origin of teeth and vertebra in the little skate (Leucoraja erinacea) that illuminate the association between vertebrates and marine organisms.
A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, reported that researchers discovered a part of protein molecules called ‘add-ons’ that could aid to understand proteins interact with each other inside living cells to carry out specialized functions.
In association with the universities of Exeter and Birmingham, the researchers revealed that even though popular muscle building supplements- branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) can stimulate the muscle building response in people after weightlifting, other muscle-building supplements are more effective. The study is published in Frontiers in Physiology.
According to a recent study conducted at the Karolinska Institutet, which was published in the journal Neurology, thrombolysis treatment does not increase the risk of bleeding in stroke patients with dementia.
According to the two studies, use of alisertib along with the drug TAK-228 was more effective against triple-negative breast cancer and solid tumors than either drug alone. The first study showed that mTOR is important for the cancer cells to maintain senescence state, while the second study reported the results of an ongoing phase 1 dose-escalation clinical trial of this combination in patients with advanced solid tumors.
According to the Singapore study, the mechanical cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) devices could offer survival benefit than manual CPR only if it’s used early on-site to manage OHCA. A potential, randomized, multicentre study was carried out by the researchers over 12 months. LUCAS 2 devices were used in 14 ambulances and manual CPR was used in 32 ambulances to manage OHCA. The primary outcome was the return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). The secondary outcomes included survival at 24 hours, survival at discharge from hospital and survival at 30 days.
