Signs of neurodegenerative diseases, visible years before the emergence of clinical manifestations, can be detected during the examination of medical samples by means of fluorescence microscopy. This is, however, on condition that suitably sensitive and selective dyes are used that bind to specific amyloid structures. The new dye, proposed by the Polish-American group of scientists, […]Continue Reading ...
August 15, 2018 Eating breakfast before exercise may “prime” the body to burn carbohydrates during exercise and more rapidly digest food after working out, University of Bath researchers have found. Scientists from the University’s Department for Health, working with colleagues at the universities of Birmingham, Newcastle and Stirling, were studying the effect of eating breakfast […]Continue Reading ...
April 28, 2018 Kourtney Kardashian on Wednesday appeared before Congress to voice her support of the Personal Care Products Safety Act, a bill introduced by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) that would require cosmetic companies to ensure that their products are safe before marketing them to consumers. Dr. Steve Xu, a resident […]Continue Reading ...

(HealthDay)—Unrestricted diets are acceptable more than one day before colonoscopy among patients using a split-dose bowel regimen, according to a study published in the October issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Anna M. Leszczynski, M.D., from the Boston University Medical Center, and colleagues investigated whether fiber and various other foods/macronutrients consumed during the three days before colonoscopy […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, July 25, 2018 — Prolonged use of opioid painkillers before total knee or hip replacement may greatly increase a patient’s risk of repeat surgery and hospitalization, a new study says. Opioid use should be considered yet another risk factor for surgeons and patients to consider before elective joint replacement, wrote lead researcher Dr. Hue […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, March 28, 2018 — An immune system response may reveal presence of the deadly Ebola virus before symptoms appear, researchers report. Currently, there’s no way to diagnose Ebola until symptoms show up, which can occur anytime between 2 and 21 days after exposure to the virus, the researchers explained. But by the time symptoms […]Continue Reading ...
October 4, 2017 Researchers are 3D printing replica human vertebrae which act and feel like real bone tissue to help train spinal surgeons before they go into live operations. A project led by Nottingham Trent University aims to give trainee surgeons the “tactic knowledge” of how it feels to partly remove or drill into vertebrae […]Continue Reading ...
