A research team at Tufts University revealed that good microbes in gastrointestinal tract could prevent liver inflammation, the major symptom of NAFLD. When the research was conducted on a mice model, they identified two key metabolites produced by the bacteria namely I3A and TA, which could ultimately reduce the severity of NAFLD.
A research team led by Dr. Beatrice Nardone, research assistant professor of dermatology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, discovered that daily consumption of aspirin could significantly increase the risk for melanoma (skin cancer) in men, compared to women.
At present, hearing loss could be diagnosed only by hearing tests such as audiogram. But it was impossible to detect at an earlier stage itself. Similarly, it was equally challenging to detect vertigo where several expensive and time-consuming imaging tests are used.
Recently in an annual meeting of ARVO (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology) which had taken place in Hawaii, Sylentis – the pharma company belonging to PharmaMar Group and a pioneer in RNAi research, had presented the positive results from the clinical studies on tivanisiran therapy against dry eye syndrome.
The heart cells are operated by Researchers from University of California San Diego School of Medicine in the US through the simple technique of shining a light and changing its intensity. The growth of the cells is facilitated through a material called graphene converting light into electricity and creating a relatively greater conducive environment than dished made from standard plastic or glass
A research study from the scientists at the National Institutes of Health and the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB) discovered that there was a connection between the genes that code for hair color and the genes that signal infection in the body. This study had revealed a reason as to why some people’s hair turn grey in response to an illness.
By getting inspired by dental reconstruction techniques, scientists from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden reported a new method where acute bone fractures would be treated with a biocompatible adhesive patch providing rigidity of dental resin composites with an extraordinary bonding strength of self-etching primer. The entire procedure would take five minutes to complete.
Antibiotics play a major role in the medical field in order to eliminate the pathogens. Nowadays, the overutilization of antibiotics seems to be an upcoming disaster which not only leads to pollution via pharmaceutical wastes, but it had also increased the risk of antibiotic resistance.
