Appropriate and acceptable health checks for people experiencing homelessness can help reduce long-term physical and mental stresses, a new study shows.
Traditional Chinese medicine reduces severity of radiation-induced gastrointestinal mucositis in rats
For tens of thousands of Australians who receive radiotherapy as part of their cancer treatment, mucositis is a serious side effect that may cause inflammation, ulcers, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain and bloating.
Researchers describe the association between the consumption of ultraprocessed foods and chronic medical conditions.
Researchers at the University of Chicago have found that the number and severity of pressure ulcers suffered by Medicare residents in U.S. nursing homes is substantially underreported, leading to unreliable data that many consumers use to determine where to receive long- or short-term care.
Scientists report that gestational exposure to low levels of bisphenol A may induce structural alterations in some fetal brain regions.
Researchers summarize the available knowledge on FODMAPs and suggest that they can play a role in the prevention and treatment of diabetes.
Sometimes too much of a good thing is not good at all. Inhibiting the function of the PD-1 protein, which blocks immune function, has shown high therapeutic efficacy in cancer immunotherapy.
Older adults with atrial cardiopathy (a major, often undetected cardiac cause of stroke) may be at increased risk of developing dementia, according to new research led by Johns Hopkins Medicine.
A stretch of DNA that hops around the human genome plays a role in premature aging disorders, scientists at the Salk Institute and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia have discovered.
Specific factors may affect physical and mental quality of life among people with multiple sclerosis
Quality of life is a measure of a person's level of comfort, health and happiness. For people with multiple sclerosis (MS), a new study has found there are specific factors that may affect a person's physical and mental quality of life.

Research identifies unique vulnerabilities in ALT cancers that can serve as novel therapeutic targets
In a study recently published in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, a team of researchers led by C. Patrick Reynolds, M.D., Ph.D., director for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine Cancer Center, sought to expand upon his lab's previous research that showed ALT tumors identified by a biomarker known as C-circles share a common biology that confers vulnerabilities to be exploited for cancer therapy.
In a new study, researchers described ecological firewalls (EFWs) to contain synthetic microbes.
