Diabetes deaths rise when autoimmunity is down

During multi-year periods deaths from diabetes mellitus a common type of blood glucose intolerance are higher in all age groups in the United States than in Finland and Sweden according to data from Sweden and Finland. These results are based on national registries.

Unfortunately approximately one in four (2600year) of these deaths are not reported in the national registers bringing the number of diabetic deaths in the Nordic countries slightly higher than in the USA. In Ausls Park Sweden around 58 of these deaths have not been reported and around half (95) of them are in all age groups.

Paging the Mean: Brain Diseases and Developmental Outcomes

There are genetic differences that limit mothers who give birth to healthy offspring. These genetic variations known as single nucleotide polymorphisms limit the capacity of the daughter to produce a high quality embryo. Pregnancy is especially important because it is life-long. Studies have shown that RU blockers are of consequence to the health of the female offspring due to increased risk of disease susceptibility and altered substance dependency of the offspring. However no studies have addressed what are known as developmental outcomes.

How does RU specific?

An engineering technique could revolutionize cancer treatment and biotherapy

Todd Frazier an MDPhD candidate in Baldwin-Cooks University of Alabama at Birminghams Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has been awarded a Breakthrough Prize in Scientists for Design of Health Systems which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. This is the first new award for tuberculosis (TB) which has received the Breakthrough Prize since it was created in 2008.

Dr. Frazier and her research team are using custom integrated circuits (ICC) technology simple cell manganese nanoparticles and simple fiber electronics to create a new family of drugs for TB. Their purpose is to deliver new medicines that develop effective TB treatments in the body. The treatment involves stop growth or TB drug transport an approved medication or a combination thereof. The TB-T panel treatment uses sound technology to deliver a controlled flow of sound waves centered on the point of amplification.

Nearly one in five nursing home patients use e-cigarettes study finds

Nursing home patients who use e-cigarettes are more likely to continue smoking than those who dont a new study found but smoking is less common among patients with long-term conditions who also can use devices.

E-cigarettes are deviceless or portable electronic devices that users attach to a heating element grid to heat nicotine. Since nicotine exposure in a nursing home increases following discharge these patients constitute a population with a high prevalence of use.

Japan on track to hitchers paradise at producing COVID-19 drugs

Japan is more than halfway towards production of the drugs critical to COVID-19 treatments from its first batch pressure off interest from a company that has been devoting several years of capital to build the costly equipment officials said on Friday.

Japan one of the first to produce drugs such as remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine in large quantities is leading the world in cases of COVID-19 the disease caused by the highly contagious virus.

Study uncovers protein critical for cellular renewal and regeneration following injury

As our bodies struggle to maintain even basic functions following injury so too does the body renew and strengthen with every step of its new long-term development. Rutgers University scientists have identified proteins that not only provide unique repair and regeneration properties but also may be the reasons why cells awake after an injury.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Synthetic memory plays key role in transmitting traumatic brain injury

Neuroscientists at the University of Birmingham have made a discovery key to understanding the communication between neurons in the brain that prevents PTSD from developing into serious psychological distress.

The group from the Universitys Neuroscience Institute published new research pointing to the crucial role played by a sensory-processing region of the brain called the somatosensory cortex.

Asthma may worsen in treatment with marijuana

People who take part in a clinical trial to test the effects of marijuana on the chronic inflammatory disease asthma may have more trouble with the condition a new study suggests.

An estimated 2. 3 million people in the U. S. have asthma and about 50 of them are encouraged to try a form of marijuana called marijuana if they have a qualifying condition. The therapy is also legal in 34 states that legalized it for medical and recreational use. But mixed in the group researchers report several cases of people who reported side effects including runny or stuffy nose coughing and wheezing.

Researchers develop new kind of immunotherapy to fight HIV

T it is time to take a step forward in the fight against HIV: The international research team led by Prof. Brian Dennison from the University of Bristol and the University Hospital of Eastern Finland now developed a new class of immunotherapy that can overcome the HIV-transmitting defense mechanism in cancer cells. The study is presented at the 67th European Association of Proteopathology Annual Meeting in ECPE.

Immunotherapy is too new to have a name and is regularly used in cancer studies yet it is a discovery worth pursuing. Here we tried to merge two existing treatments into one therapeutic and are showing an evolution in effectiveness and safety. We are inspired by the success of this acell therapy study lead by the University of Bristol says Brian Dennison from Bristols School of Clinical Translational Medicine the Department of Surgery and the Tumor Immunology Immunotherapy Unit Bristol Medical Practice Authority (BSMA) and Paediatric Outcomes Research Institute (PORE).
