Kisspeptin administration can boost sexual responses in people with hypoactive sexual desire disorder
The hormone kisspeptin could be used to treat women and men distressed by their low sexual desire, according to two new studies.
A recent study from UiB shows that elevated plasma methylmalonic acid predicts increased risk of acute myocardial infarction and mortality in patients with suspected or verified coronary heart disease.
In their evolutionary battle for survival, viruses have developed strategies to spark and perpetuate infection. Once inside a host cell, the Ebola virus, for example, hijacks molecular pathways to replicate itself and eventually make its way back out of the cell into the bloodstream, where it can spread further.
A National Institutes of Health research group with extensive experience studying ebolavirus countermeasures has successfully developed a vaccine against Sudan virus (SUDV) based on the licensed Ebola virus (EBOV) vaccine.
For the first time, researchers have discovered that prostate cancer can be killed by targeting a single enzyme, called PI5P4Kα.
If you live near a busy road, it may increase your stress levels and affect your sleep. When we are under stress and sleep poorly, we may be at a higher risk of developing tinnitus.
There is currently no drug for treating non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which affects many people with type 2 diabetes and which can result in other serious liver diseases.
A recent study discusses the safety profiles and immunogenicity of the nasal BBV154 COVID-19 vaccine in healthy adults.
A protocol for the systematic review of previous publications to determine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals with fibromyalgia.
Are plasma levels of axonal damage and neuronal degeneration makers altered in COVID-19 patients without major neurological manifestations?
A recent study evaluated whether plasma levels of NfL, T-tau, and GFAP changed in SARS-CoV-2-infected patients with or without major neurological manifestations.
This study evaluated the effect of preferred music, as opposed to disliked music, on the perception of pain and pain tolerance in healthy volunteers.

A new paper, which appears on the bioRxiv* preprint server, describes the investigation of all French mink farms towards the end of 2020. This was to maximize the chances of identifying SARS-CoV-2 infection in these animals at any time over the past year.
A new study in PLoS ONE aimed to analyze the variables associated with in-hospital mortality in COVID-19-positive cancer patients who were presented to the ED.
Researchers briefly outlined how viral infections trigger endocrinopathies in humans.
Researchers describe the development and utility of this COVID-19 research collection and analysis platform.
A recent study examines how mass gatherings in Hong Kong were associated with the local transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
Researchers discuss the role of a surfactant-mediated inflammatory response employed by human lungs against SARS-CoV-2.
Researchers explored plants as an extensive resource of molecules with potential therapeutic action against SARS-CoV-2 and debunked misconceptions.
Researchers explore a mutational signature related to molnupiravir in SARS-CoV-2 sequencing datasets.
