This is the first study to determine the death percentage of an opioid overdose with chronic pain. Around 60% of the individuals died from an opioid overdose who had been diagnosed with a chronic pain condition and psychiatric disorder. The findings were published in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

The new research provided evidence that bonobo species anatomically may be more closely related to human ancestors than the common chimpanzee, by examining the muscular system of bonobos. Earlier studies have proposed this theory at the molecular level, but this study involves comparison of the anatomy of three species for the first time.
On a global scale, this is the first study to analyze the demographics of religious affiliation at the time of death and to continue the study analysis until 2060.In spite the importance of religious affiliation for health- and death-related behavior, there have been few global predictions of this kind. As well as for burial practices these changes have implications for end-of-life health care.
Compared to the white patients who lived in economically impoverished areas, the physical function after two years of surgery was worst in black patients who lived in the deprived area, found the researchers. In wealthier areas, they could not notice any difference in hip replacement outcomes between blacks and whites.
TU Dresden-Scientists from the University Cancer Center UCC at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus had developed a molecular smoke alert for the TP53 gene, the most important human cancer gene. The alert got switched on when the TP53 gene was mutated in cells. The molecular smoke detector worked like a TP53 sensor that monitored the correct function of the gene. A non-functional TP53 gene activated the sensor and initiated cell death. The study findings were published in the journal Nature Communications.
NASA astronauts have seen visual impairment intracranial pressure ( VIIP ) syndrome that might be related to the redistribution of body fluid to the head during long-term microgravity exposure. The exact cause of this, however, was unclear. Data Describing the adaptation of the human brain to microgravity was Insufficient, and it was Proposed That MRI Could be used to investigate the anatomy of the brain following spaceflight.
Investigators engineered an innovative technology by combining hydrogels with the complex intestinal tissue known as organoids. This innovative technology may help in controlling the growth of these organoids and use them for treating wounds in the gut, caused by disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The research was published in the journal Nature Cell Biology.
New research at McMaster University reported that destroying cancer cells by bolstering adipocytes/fat cells in the bone marrow could benefit patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). The findings reported that boosting fat cells, repressed cancerous leukaemia cells and regenerated healthy blood cells at the same time. The study was published in the journal Nature Cell Biology.
A new research showed that engaging patients in addiction treatment when they were hospitalized for other conditions, could close a gap in addiction treatment. The study was published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment.
A new study reported that an essential protein complex which breaks down proteins in cells, the proteasome, showed another surprising function, i.e., directly regulating the DNA packing in the nucleus. The study was led by scientists from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology and was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
Whole Genome Sequencing and Machine Learning Data is Using for Identification of Individuals with the Predictive Traits
The researchers from Human Longevity, Inc. (HLI) have published a study in which individual faces and other physical traits were predicted using whole genome sequencing data and machine learning. Prediction of human physical characteristics and demographic information from genomic data challenges privacy and data identification in personalized medicine.
