Study reveals underestimated heat risks in climate change, highlighting challenges for aging population
Study in 'Nature Communications' presents a new model integrating physiological factors to more accurately predict human survivability and livability under heat stress due to climate change.
Obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular metabolic diseases and neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia.
Researchers investigate the neural patterns of patients with PTSD while listening to narratives that depicted their own memories.
Study reveals significant discrepancies in the labeled and actual cannabidiol content in various commercial products, highlighting a major quality control issue.
Nanotechnology could enhance traditional Chinese medicine delivery, promising improved clinical outcomes
This review in the Journal of Nanobiotechnology explores how nanotechnology enhances the delivery of traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs), overcoming challenges like poor solubility and limited bioavailability. Nanocarriers like liposomes and nanoparticles improve TCM delivery, offering greater therapeutic effectiveness and reduced side effects, but face challenges in biocompatibility and stability for clinical use.
The study published in PNAS reveals that emotions create identifiable maps of bodily sensations, consistent across different cultures and races. Using a novel method named "embody," researchers found that subjective emotional experiences are linked to specific bodily changes, providing insights that could aid in understanding and treating mood disorders like depression and anxiety, which alter standard emotional processing.
The increased legalization of cannabis over the past several years can potentially increase its co-use with alcohol. Concerningly, very few studies have looked at the effects of these two drugs when used in combination.
When women with diabetes become pregnant, they face not only the typical challenges of pregnancy and impending parenthood, but also a scary statistic: they're five times more likely to have a baby with a congenital heart defect.
Social media use is associated with risky health behaviours in young people including increased alcohol, drug and tobacco use, anti-social behavior, risky sexual behaviors and gambling, finds a review of the latest evidence published by The BMJ today.
The impact of implementing a high sensitivity assay for cardiac troponin I on long term outcomes in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome
Researchers from the United Kingdom evaluated the use of a high-sensitivity assay to measure cardiac troponin I and its impact on myocardial infarction (MI) risk or other long-term outcomes such as death at five years in individuals with suspected acute coronary syndrome.
Sustainable dietary modeling and formulation in the animal-to-plant-based dietary (PBD) transition.
Researchers examined the impact of the growth in internet technology on psychological well-being and overall mental health.
Vaccination with recombinant zoster vaccine (RZV) prevents Herpes Zoster (HZ) infection.
New study provides convincing evidence of the essential role of cylicins in sperm development and fertility
Researchers investigated the Role of Cylicins in Spermiogenesis and Male Fertility in Mice and Humans through Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR)/ CRISPR-associated protein 9 (Cas9) Gene Editing.
The association between plant-based diet index (PDI), unhealthful PDI (uPDI), and healthful PDI (hPDI) and weight loss.
Can a transdiagnostic, blended ecological momentary intervention improve self-esteem in youth with low self-esteem and prior exposure to childhood adversity?
A new study in JAMA Psychiatry reports on the results of a four-year randomized clinical trial (RCT) comparing usual care alone or coupled with SELFIE, a form of EMI, in young people with a history of adversity during childhood.
Existing scientific data on the effects of vitamin K (VK) on bone health and elucidated the underlying mechanisms.
How many fast-food joints do you come across throughout your day and what does that have to do with your health? A lot, says Abigail Horn, a lead scientist at USC's Information Sciences Institute (ISI).
Study finds top three classes of medications more effective than ibuprofen for treating migraine attacks
For many people with migraine, it can be difficult to find a treatment that is effective and reliable, and information on how medications compare to one another is lacking.
Actively monitoring abnormal cells (lesions) that line the cervix rather than removing them straight away is associated with an increased long term risk of cervical cancer, suggests a study published by The BMJ today.
