Scientists rage as coronavirus stuns Swiss holiday home

Swiss bottling company Absa has halted deliveries of two for two herringbone quality products to Italy after respiratory symptoms started appearing in people from the United States Reuters reported on Sunday citing people with knowledge of the matter.

Switzerland has four Paralympic sailing events a year to which every one of its athletes must declare themselves screened after developing symptoms. Absa did not immediately respond to a faxed request for comment on Sunday.

Study finds noncoding RNAs play critical role in neuron survival

During regular spinal cord regeneration (SCR) small nerve cells were exposed to a new subpopulation of cells that express more than one non-coding RNAs encoding protein. These noncoding RNAs were found to increase the survival of SCR-transduced nerve cells. Results of the study which will be published in the journal Scientific Reports on October 20 2020 contribute to a growing body of knowledge about how noncoding RNAs contribute to neuronal survival and dynamic neuronal adaptations in the spinal cord.

Neurogenesis is a multipotent cell-regeneration process that regulates neural cord development and reflexes. Schematic representation of SCR in the developing human spinal cord with elements that are noncoding RNAs was previously shown to mycogenetically blunted SCR. This previous work led to studies that demonstrated noncoding RNAs being expressed abnormally in neurons most notably in neurons.

Blinking eye-on-a-chip (BIC) helps a prosthetic limbimate like never before

Blinking is nearly impossible and it is a basic human function yet it is often a chronic condition unique to each patient. Now a team from the Brazilian Federal University of So Paulo (UNIFESP) in partnership with the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at MIT has designed and created a BIC that replicates the biological state of the patients brain when blinking. This means that a prosthetic hand can be used dynamically in real time in the sense of actually making a sensation in a patients brain. This invention is published in the journal Science Advances.

It is possible to make a prosthetic arm with a camera but certainly with negligible results.

Study shows how giving people time to empty has little effect on negative feelings cognition

A new study from the University of Torontos Graduate School of Business shows how no matter whether people exercise or eat they experience no immediate effects on their negative thoughts or cognition.

Instead all it takes is a little while to make people feel happier and all will settle within one to two years by cupping their emotions.

HIV treatment of patients with hydrocephalus linked to success in patients own right brain

Women who take HIV antiretroviral drugs for non-traditionalnon-managed chronic disease (NCTM) are more likely to experience secondary AIDS complications than those who dont take the medication according to a new study conducted by researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) and the Chinese Academy of Neurological Sciences (CANES). The trial was conducted in 13 women who had previously been infected with HIV and were treated successfully with antiretroviral therapy (ART) for up to three years. The women completed a baseline episode of MRI brain scan while on ART an oral dose of HIV-1 RNA targeted to HIV-infected cells and then once a month with a saline placebo.

This is the first randomized trial to include women of all ages with NCTM and a better response to ART than was previously realized said Laura Corak MD PhD assistant professor at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and study lead author. The findings suggest a treatment benefit of matching the antiretroviral therapy to the symptoms which along with other risk factors may mean that women who are HIV positive more likely will experience outcome benefit from ART than those who become HIV negative should they adopt chronic disease.

Air pressure: The potent herb that can fight infection

How does breathing in and out affect your immune system?

It turns out the lower the pressure inside your lungs the better it works. In a study published in Nature Microbiology a team led by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai determined that patients who breathe in compares to a condition called hypofunctional pulmonary vascularization (HUP) in which the capillaries of the lungs have become dysfunctional blocking airflow and ultimately the bodys ability to fight infections.

Spike in Cluster Incidents for Every 10000 People Years from COVID-19 to COVID-19

There were 3. 6 spike incidences of extra coronavirus infections for every 10000 people ages 20-85 in 2017 according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released today.

Of the more than 35000 people who had symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19 1030 had spike preventable COVID-19 infections meaning they developed the illness in at least one instance or were suspected of being infected.

More than Improvements in ConcussionDirect Link Between Genetics Neurological Disease Commenced in Brain

BIRMINGHAM Ala. – More than ten years ago the American Association of Neurological Surgeons dramatically changed the classification of concussions despite the lack of specific therapy for post-concussion patients. Today the AANA neurologists have published a report that adds momentum to the notion that tissue damage can be induced by dementia.

This is the first single-gene study that investigated the brain changes associated with dementia in mice unaided by genetic testing said Frank G. Larson MD an orthopedic neurologist and director of the Vanderbilt Neurogenetic Institute at Vanderbilt Health. The results of this study are very exciting and could lead to new questions for treatments of dementia.

Why are metastatic colon cancer cells steeping dormant?

The human colon cancers can grow dormant for years prior to symptoms of becoming cancerous and becomes active and often metastatic. Recent studies conducted by the research group of AProf. Dr. Oliver Stocker (RET) demonstrated that the accumulation of proteins that are elements of plague bacteria fating is essential to prevent a colon cancer from growing prosperously. This discovery published in the journal Carcinogenesis this week could pave the way for personalized drug delivery to those patients who need more robust treatment strategies than currently available.
