The study led by the researchers from Mailman School of Public Health and the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy is the first to identify trends in depression by gender, education, and income over the past decade.
Combination of Diet and Exercise Interventions to Improve Blood Flow in the Brain of Older adults with Diabetes
People with overweight are most frequently develop the type 2 diabetes. It exhibits negative impact on blood circulation, causes stiffening of blood vessels and reduces the amount of oxygen that circulates throughout the body, including the brain. The abnormal brain blood flow could affect cognitive performance. Increasing physical activity and lowering calorie intake are known to reduce the adverse impact of type 2 diabetes on the body, but the effects of those interventions on cognition and the brain have remained unclear.
Researchers came one-step ahead to recreate a complex organ in the laboratory that is an artificial heart. An absolute lifesaver for people with cardiac failure is an artificial heart. Prior, one needs to know about how to grow multi-layered, living tissues. The spraying process fulfills the goals to create functioning muscle fibers. An artificial heart that does not trigger any rejection reactions in the body after implantation would be an elegant alternative.
According to a new study, moderate to vigorous physical activity could considerably reduce the risk of glaucoma. Scientists found that the most physically active people decreased the risk of developing the disease when compared to the least active people. The study was presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
The magnetic field can activate tiny groups of cells in the brain, inducing bodily movements that include running, rotating and losing control of the extremities. This research could help in treating neurological diseases.
Association between more physical activity and significant reduction in mortality risk among older women
A new study showed that the mortality risk in older women in the short time could be decreased significantly by performing the more physical activity and at higher intensities. The findings were reported in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation.
The S-TRAC study reported that adjuvant therapy of renal-cell carcinoma (RCC) with sunitinib after nephrectomy had not improved the overall survival rate. However, distant disease recurrence was decreased with the therapy, and a rate of disease-free survival was increased. The study was reported in European Urology.
A few days back the President of US has made few announcements regarding health insurance policy. President Trump has signed an executive order that aims to increase competition by promoting access to association health plans, short-term limited duration insurance products, and health reimbursement arrangements. It’s not possible to change instantly; hence the president has provided 60 to 120 days to some government agencies to draft regulations for the implementation of new policies.
The new study at Columbia University Medical Center ( CUMC ) has shown the role of the semaphorins in identifying the correct taste . The taste-system of mice with engineered semaphorins perceived sweet stimuli as bitter tastes, and vice versa. This finding provides new insights into how the tongue keeps its sense of taste despite the rapid turnover of the cells in its taste buds.The study was published in the online edition of Nature .
In a new study published in Science immunology, the scientists showed the effectiveness of vaccine against Zika, dengue and Hepatitis C viruses. They demonstrated that the natural killer cells (NK) can identify these viruses through a single receptor called KIR2DS2.
