The human brain is highly sensitive to oxygen deprivation. Extensive and irreversible damage occurs within approximately 10 minutes of cardiac (and hence circulatory) arrest. For the first time, researchers have been able to study these events in humans.
An international research team has succeeded in stopping the growth of malignant melanoma by reactivating a protective mechanism that prevents tumor cells from dividing.
A new method mixing techniques such as molecular self-assembly and additive manufacturing has been developed to construct complex structures by arranging molecules and cells embedded in a protective ink.
Public outreach campaigns can prevent the spread of devastating yet treatable diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), malaria and gonorrhea. But ensuring these campaigns effectively reach undiagnosed patients, who may unknowingly spread the disease to others, is a major challenge for cash-strapped public health agencies.
New research on why the influenza vaccine was only modestly effective in recent years shows that immune history with the flu influences a person's response to the vaccine.
Women who work as cleaners or regularly use cleaning sprays or other cleaning products at home appear to experience a greater decline in lung function over time than women who do not clean, according to new research published online in the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
In a first-of-its-kind study that furthers the applications of nanomedicine, the technique of “DNA origami” through programmed nanorobots has proven successful against breast cancer, melanoma, ovarian and lung cancer tumors.
Most people agree that getting a little exercise helps when dealing with stress. A new BYU study discovers exercise -- particularly running -- while under stress also helps protect your memory.
Kidney stones are a painful health condition, often requiring multiple procedures at great discomfort to the patient. Growing evidence suggests that the incidence of kidney stones is increasing steadily, especially in women.
Findings by a research team at Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands) show that the use of methylene blue was rapidly effective not only for curing patients but also in preventing the transmission of the Plasmodium Falciparum parasites.
A new study examined bone and muscle health in 295 schoolchildren over a whole school year where the children participated in the 'FIT FIRST' training concept, looking into the effects of various types of intense interval training at school.
Influenza vaccination coverage among high-risk groups has dropped in the European Region over the last seven years, and half the countries report a decrease in the number of vaccine doses available.
A pilot study has shown that treatment with deep transcranial magnetic stimulation significantly reduces symptoms of fatigue in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Varenicline, an anti-smoking drug has been shown to be associated with an increased risk of stroke and myocardial infarction. Smokers wishing to quit are encouraged to be more careful in their treatment choices.
The internal anatomy of our lungs is surprisingly variable, and some of those variations are associated with a greater risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a new study led by researchers at McGill University and the Columbia University Irving Medical Center has found.
Scientists identified a gene mutation leading to high and low blood sugar levels. This discovery could aid the search for new methods for allowing the regeneration of beta cells.
The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) may be hiding in small spaces on the surface of tonsils and tongues of people unaware of hosting the virus, according to a recent study by University of Rochester Medical Center researchers.
Multipotent stromal cells have long been a hot topic in medical research. Scientists have now found a way to specifically mark these stem cells. This makes it possible to analyze their distribution pattern and their function in living organisms.
A new approach to reducing bulging tummy fats has shown promise in laboratory trials. It combines a new way to deliver drugs, via a micro-needle patch, with drugs that are known to turn energy-storing white fat into energy-burning brown fat.
A new study reveals that electronic cigarettes, hookahs, non-cigarette combustible tobacco or smokeless tobacco were associated with conventional cigarettes usage within a year in adolescents, with a higher chance of use for consumers of multiple non-cigarette tobacco products.
