A new study has found a link between the number of push-ups a person is able to do and the risk of cardiovascular disease. The findings show that middle-aged men who are able to complete 10 push-ups could reduce their risk of heart attack and stroke by as much as 97 percent. g-stockstudio | Shutterstock […]Continue Reading ...
In recent years, an overwhelming body of clinical evidence has firmly established the HIV Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) concept as scientifically sound, say officials from the National Institutes of Health. U=U means that people living with HIV who achieve and maintain an undetectable viral load—the amount of HIV in the blood—by taking and adhering to […]Continue Reading ...
A new cancer drug that uses a ‘Trojan horse’ approach to enter cancer cells and destroy them from within has shown promising results across six different forms of cancer. Dmitriy Rybin | Shutterstock The new treatment succeeded in significantly improving survival among a minority of patients with cancers that other drugs had failed to treat. […]Continue Reading ...
Patients with Parkinson’s disease can voluntarily control β waves in their deep brain, representing a new approach toward managing disease-related brain activity Parkinson’s disease is associated with abnormal beta wave activity in the subthalamic nucleus (STN), but a direct connection between this activity and movement difficulties has not yet been established. A study group at […]Continue Reading ...
Feb 6 2019 University of Toyko creates world’s first high-throughput image-based cell sorter Cell sorting plays a fundamental role in molecular biology, pathology, immunology and virology research. It requires the ability to rapidly search through and sort out cells based on their unique chemical features and shapes. Conventional methods are limited in uncovering these differences, […]Continue Reading ...
Computational method helps scientists examine microbes at a larger, more comprehensive scale than previously possible During the Zika virus outbreak of 2015-16, public health officials scrambled to contain the epidemic and curb the pathogen’s devastating effects on pregnant women. At the same time, scientists around the globe tried to understand the genetics of this mysterious […]Continue Reading ...
For reasons that are unclear, schizophrenia patients have fewer connections between the neurons in the brain. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, and Massachusetts General Hospital, USA, have now succeeded in creating human cell models that show that there is an excessive degradation of connections in the brain of these patients, and they have been able […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 30 2019 Chromatrap® has entered into a partnership with Covaris to offer a highly scalable and simple ChIP workflow enabling researchers to easily isolate protein-DNA complexes for downstream applications, such as ChIP-Seq, ChIP-qPCR, Next-generation sequencing (NGS), and Mass Spectrometry (MS). Preparing samples for Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) has traditionally been a multi-step, time-consuming, and error-prone […]Continue Reading ...
Older people who were newly diagnosed with depression had a slower walking speed and a shorter step length compared with those without depression in a recent Journal of the American Geriatrics Society study. Gait parameters and mental health both have significant impacts on functional status in later life. The study’s findings suggest that gait problems […]Continue Reading ...
Feb 8 2019 Functional B-1 cells derived from mouse embryonic stem cells are capable of long-term engraftment and secrete natural antibodies after transplantation in mice, researchers report February 7 in the journal Stem Cell Reports. Scientists are interested in B-1 cells generated from pluripotent stem cells because they could be tested as a therapeutic for […]Continue Reading ...
Community-developed blueprint of worm metabolism holds promise for greater understanding of aging What can worms tell us about human aging? A lot more than you’d think; as research led by the Babraham Institute but involving researchers from multiple disciplines drawn together from across the world has shown. In a cluster of papers, the latest of […]Continue Reading ...
Registered researchers will have rapid access to an “unprecedented scale” of clinical research data through the new Common Infrastructure for National Cohorts in Europe, Canada and Africa (CINECA), launched today. Simon Fraser University professor Fiona Brinkman, the initiative’s Canadian lead, says the project will not only accelerate disease research but will also help to advance […]Continue Reading ...
The heart’s motion is so powerful that it can recharge devices that save our lives, according to new research from Dartmouth College. Using a dime-sized invention developed by engineers at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, the kinetic energy of the heart can be converted into electricity to power a wide-range of implantable devices, […]Continue Reading ...
In an ongoing study exploring walking for health across the adult lifespan, University of Massachusetts Amherst kinesiology researchers found that walking cadence is a reliable measure of exercise intensity and set simple steps-per-minute guidelines for moderate and vigorous intensity. Catrine Tudor-Locke, professor of kinesiology, and postdoctoral researchers Elroy Aguiar and Scott Ducharme concluded that for […]Continue Reading ...
Engineers at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a new noninvasive technique for simulating repairs to the heart’s mitral valve with levels of accuracy reliable enough for use in a clinical setting. Mitral valve (MV) disease is one of the most common valve-related heart conditions, newly diagnosed in 5 million Americans each year. […]Continue Reading ...
