Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, causing more deaths than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for roughly 85% of lung cancers. Elderly Lung Cancer Patients Undergoing Radiation Have Lower Incidence of Esophagitis A large proportion of…


Fish is a good source of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids which may help to remove metabolites, including amyloid-beta peptides which is one of the factors that lead to Alzheimer’s, finds a study conducted by researchers from the University of Macau. To make this discovery, scientists first used transgenic fat-1 mice, which express high endogenous Omega-3…


About 11 million United States children have special health needs. Half of them – 5.6 million – receive at least 5.1 hours per week in medical care at home. U.S. families provide nearly $36 billion annually in uncompensated medical care at home to children who have special health care needs, such as muscular dystrophy and…


A new way that could lead to dramatic reductions in human cholesterol levels has been discovered by Brandeis University scientist. Senior Brandeis research scientist Daniel Perlman was issued a U.S. patent (number 8,460,738) on the new process. Phytosterols in plants and cholesterol molecules in animals are highly similar and when both are dispersed together they…


Rad4 is a protein involved in DNA repair. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI) have demonstrated how Rad4 scans the DNA in a unique pattern of movement called “constrained motion” to efficiently find structural faults in DNA. The findings, reported in the journal Molecular Cell,…


Risk of stroke due to resistant hypertension increased by 35% in women and 20% in elderly Taiwanese patients, suggests a research presented at ESC Congress today by Dr Kuo-Yang Wang from Taiwan. The findings suggest that gender and age should be added to the risk stratification of resistant hypertension to enable more appropriate treatment decisions….


Although the purpose of the chemical ultraviolet (UV) filters is to reduce the amount of the sun’s UV rays getting through the skin by absorbing UV, some UV filters are rapidly absorbed through the skin. UV filter chemicals reportedly have been found in human blood samples and in 95% of urine samples in the U.S.,…


The Endocrine Society issued a Clinical Practice Guideline recommending continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) as the gold standard of care for adults with Type 1 diabetes. The guideline, titled “Diabetes TechnologyContinuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion Therapy and Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Adults: An Endocrine Society Clinical Practice Guideline,” was published online and will appear in the November…


Psychosis, a mental condition, is characterized by a break from reality during which an individual may experience delusions and hallucinations. While schizophrenia is best known for episodes of psychosis, it is also marked by chronic neurocognitive deficits, such as problems with memory and attention. A multi-site cognition study led by psychologists at Beth Israel Deaconess…


Condoms made from a native grass of Australia can make sex safer and is expected to be much cheaper than already available ones. Researchers from the University of Queensland’s Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) have developed thin condoms by extracting nanocellulose from a grass called spinifex. ‘Condoms manufactured from latex with added nanocellulose…
