Substantial Morbidity And Mortality From Respiratory Syncytial Virus

Substantial Morbidity And Mortality From Respiratory Syncytial Virus

As the respiratory syncytial virus; a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections; is behind one of every four deaths from acute illness for children under 2 years old. As children were getting respiratory syncytial virus and experiencing severe illness, but the substantial morbidity and mortality from RSV that we observed in this study really highlights its…

Pain Sensing Nerves Also Help Fight Skin Infections

Pain Sensing Nerves Also Help Fight Skin Infections

The study demonstrating that pain sensing nerves also help fight skin infections and prevent its spread; suggesting a new type of immunity. These pain sensing nerves can detect pathogens, and for the first time, we’ve shown that they activate an immune response; and also signal protective immunity in sites adjacent to the infection. This demonstrates…

Neurological Autoimmune Disease attacks the brain

Neurological Autoimmune Disease Attacks The Brain

Multiple sclerosisis now thought to be a neurological autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the brain and spinal cord. It is most likely to occur in young people under the age of 40. But the vaccinations are often mentioning as a possible risk factor for Multiple sclerosisis. As the data from over 12,000…

Antimicrobial Peptides Help By Protect Against Infection

Antimicrobial Peptide Defensin Cooperates With Tumour Necrosis

An antimicrobial agent called Defensin kills tumor cells and shrinks tumor size in fruit flies, with help from a pathway that flags the cells for destruction. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are small cationic molecules best known as mediators of the innate defence against microbial infection. The study providing the first evidence in live animals that antimicrobial…

Detection Of Selective Membrane Targeting Repurposing Antibiotic

Detection Of Selective Membrane Targeting Repurposing Antibiotic

The study detecting an selective membrane targeting repurposing antibiotic with activity against persistent methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus; and fighting drug-resistant bacteria some of the scariest, most dangerous bugs on the planet. verify how bithionol a drug used to treat parasitic infections can weaken the cell membranes of persister cells of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a deadly staph…

Single-cell Atlas Reveals Human Colon During Ulcerative Colitis

Single Cell Atlas Reveals Human Colon During Ulcerative Colitis

Inflammatory bowel diseases are chronic, painful disorders of the intestine. Yet the underlying mechanisms of these diseases, which include ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease; are unknowing. Even patients with the same diagnosis can have drastically different responses to treatment; The study analyzing intestinal tissue from patients; with ulcerative colitis and healthy individuals; generating an atlas…

Lower Dementia Risk In Black Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Lower Dementia Risk In Black Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

As the type 2 diabetes mellitus is almost twice as prevalent among African Americans as non-Hispanic whites. Metformin use is associating with a substantially lower risk for dementia; among younger African-American patients with diabetes comparing with sulfonylurea initiation. Diabetes is a risk factor for dementia. But according to the research studies; medical record data to…

New Genome Heralds Change In Lyme Disease Infections

New Genome Heralds Change In Lyme Disease Infections

The rodent Peromyscus leucopus is the natural reservoir of several tick-borne infections, including Lyme disease. As Lyme disease increases, researchers have taking a significant step toward finding new ways to prevent its transmission. But with 2.45 billion of those letters, representing nucleotides that form DNA’s basic structural unit, its genome is similar in size to that…

Exposure To Parasites May Have Greater Negative Effect

Exposure To Parasites May Have Greater Negative Effect

In this study examine how the ovipositing parasites behaviour effect of a cactiphilic fruit fly, Drosophila nigrospiracula, is affected by the presence of an ectoparasitic mite, Macrocheles subbadius, in conjunction with other environmental factors specifically the presence or absence of conspecific eggs and host plant tissue. But environments are often heterogeneous; host decision-making with regarding to…

Aberrant Proteins In Parkinson's Disease

Aberrant Proteins In Parkinson’s Disease

The pathological study revealing that the oxidative stress could be a driving force in the spreading of aberrant proteins involving in Parkinson’s disease. At the microscopic and pathological levels, the disease is characterized by accumulation of abnormal intraneuronal inclusions. Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease with clinical manifestations that include motor (e.g., tremor and slowness in…

Vagal Neurons Promotes Parkinsonian Pathology

Vagal Neurons Promotes Parkinsonian Pathology

The oxidative stress could be a driving force in the spreading of aberrant proteins involved in Parkinson’s disease pathology. This is the result of lab studies by researchers of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases. Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease with clinical manifestations that include motor as well as non-motor (e.g., sleep disorders and depression)…

Fasciola Parasite Causes Neurological Disorders

Fasciola Parasite Causes Neurological Disorders

Human fascioliasis is a worldwide; pathogenic food-borne trematodiasis. Fascioliasis is a parasitic disease causing by two species present in the liver; hepatic fasciola, which is prevalent worldwide, and Fasciola gigantica; which is finding in Asia and Africa. The high pathogenicity of this disease has led the World Health Organisation (WHO) to include it in the…
