FAU researchers have now discovered that so-called TRM cells (shown in yellow) presumably cause flare-ups in chronic inflammatory diseases such as Morbus Crohn or ulcerative colitis. Credit: Universitätsklinikum Erlangen/Sebastian Zundler Patients affected by the chronic inflammatory bowel diseases morbus Crohn and ulcerative colitis often suffer from flare-ups, which damage intestinal tissue. Despite advances in treating […]Continue Reading ...
The latest findings from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study indicate that people suffering chronic inflammation during middle age show a greater decline in cognitive function as they get older. Sklemine Kirill | Shutterstock When the body sustains an injury, it raises an acute inflammatory response to fight off infection and promote healing. This […]Continue Reading ...
FRIDAY, Feb. 1, 2019 — Instead of popping a painkiller, a little mindful yoga might go a long way toward easing longstanding pain, a new study suggests. The review of 21 clinical trials involving nearly 2,000 people looked at the effects of two drug-free options for chronic pain: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and a program […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Older patients with a diagnosis of chronic sinusitis—a disease of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses that often persists over many years—have a unique inflammatory signature that may render them less responsive to steroid treatment, according to a new study published by Vanderbilt researchers.

DNA testing can identify a genetic culprit in about 10 percent of adults with chronic kidney disease and impacts treatment for most of them. A new study has found that genes cause about 1 in 10 cases of chronic kidney disease in adults, and identifying the responsible gene has a direct impact on treatment for […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers from the Virginia Tech School of Neuroscience are teaming with the University of California San Diego and the U.S. National Institutes of Health to develop a drug — now in its earliest stages — that can treat certain types of chronic pain without the addictive consequences of opioids. The drug compound, known as ML351, […]Continue Reading ...
Using an animal model of chronic stress, researchers at The Ohio State University have shown that the immune cells of the brain, called microglia, hold unique signatures of chronic stress that leave the animal more sensitive to future stressful experiences, evident by increased anxiety and immune responses. Eliminating microglia so that these “stress memories” could […]Continue Reading ...
Mass. General study finds that blocking IL-33/Treg axis prevents development of skin and colon cancer in mice with chronic inflammation A Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) research team has identified interaction between two elements of the immune system as critical for the transformation of a protective immune response into chronic, cancer-promoting inflammation. In their report published […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Mindfulness meditation is a promising option for easing chronic pain, finds a pooled analysis of the available data, published online in the journal Evidence Based Mental Health. It can lessen the severity and impact on daily life of chronic pain as well as the accompanying distress, the findings indicate. This is […]Continue Reading ...
Sensyne Health plc (“Sensyne”), the British Clinical AI technology company, today announces a three-year collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Big Data Institute (BDI) to establish a world-leading research alliance to develop and evaluate the use of clinical artificial intelligence (clinical AI) and digital technology to understand the complexities of chronic disease. No financial terms […]Continue Reading ...
In a representative sample of the German population, older age, obesity, and depressive disorder were associated with experiencing chronic hip pain. In the Musculoskeletal Care study of 2,515 adults, 4.9 percent reported chronic hip pain and an additional 1.5 percent reported chronic hip pain that was disabling. Hip pain affected 1-5 sites in 47 percent, […]Continue Reading ...
Picture by ‘Hannah’, a young person with chronic pain. Credit: Abbie Jordan., Author provided Adolescence can be a difficult but exciting time, when young people make discoveries and decisions about their futures, and develop a sense of who they are and their place in the world. But for young people with chronic pain – that […]Continue Reading ...
Dec 3 2018 A major compound in soil organic matter degrades chronic wasting disease prions and decreases infectivity in mice, according to a study published November 29 in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens by Judd Aiken of the University of Alberta, and colleagues. CWD infectivity is shed from infected deer and released from deer carcasses. […]Continue Reading ...
Advances in treating cancer, heart disease and other major health conditions in recent decades have extended life spans for millions of people. However, chronic kidney disease is an outlier, with cases accelerating at a faster pace than all other noninfectious diseases, according to a study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and […]Continue Reading ...
