Pacritinib was significantly more effective than the best available therapy, including ruxolitinib, in reducing splenomegaly and trended toward a reduction in total symptom score in patients with myelofibrosis and thrombocytopenia.
Urechis unicinctus ( U. unicinctus ), a far east specialty food known as innkeeper worm, ethanol extract was studied to examine its potential β-site amyloid cleaving enzyme (BACE) inhibition for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
Oily fish was included in the diet of a group of children by researchers to examine their effect on their cognitive functioning through Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence test and 9-Hole Peg Test.
The study presents the characterization of a workflow developed by Menarini Silicon Biosystems as the Ampli1 LowPass kit. Scientists reported the development of a robust and streamlined procedure for whole-genome copy number of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from a simple blood test.
xCELLigence demonstrated reduced workload, improved efficiency, and higher reproducibility would make it possible to quickly assess and compare by standardized parameters the disaggregating activity of phage anti-biofilm proteins.
Chronic fatigue syndrome / myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME / CFS) might be caused by mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) suggests a new research done by 13 panelists to begin developing the expert consensus guidance for primary care.
Xpresys lung 2, a diagnostic method would identify benign lung nodules, with high probability, to avoid unnecessary invasive procedures.Clinical validation was based on the PANOPTIC clinical trial, a large prospective lung nodule clinical trial.
New research revealed a unique molecular signature in the blood linked to aggressive cancers. The discovery could lead to a simple blood test for the early detection of lung cancers and identify patients who would respond to immunotherapies.
NTU Singapore scientists have found potential biomedical uses for collagen derived from fish scales which are usually discarded. Collagen itself a promoter of wound healing, it would also act as a carrier of drugs that could enhance wound healing.
Researchers at the University of Birmingham and King's College London have found that staying active keeps the body young and healthy. The researchers assessed the health of older adults who had exercised most of their adult lives to see if this could slow down aging.
Leishmaniasis is a vector-borne disease caused by protozoan parasites. The current review describes compounds from marine macroalgae along with their antileishmanial activity and provides prospective insights for antileishmanial drug discovery.
