More than 50000 patients from across South Asia have been upgraded in private hospitals travelling across the country on a care flight specially chartered by HCMC authorities the nations largest private hospital and the governments largest -public-funded unit.
They will be discharged to hospitals operating under private facilities HCMC official spokesman Malak Ansari told Reuters in an interview.
When faced with a deadly form of the disease Megan Armstrong MD Assistant Professor of Medicine on the UT Southwestern Medical Centers Breast Outcomes and Behavior Committee and team of researchers set out to determine whether repurposing existing approved targeted treatments might be beneficial for patients suffering from aggressive triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
Through a multi-institutional search researchers identified three potential therapeutic compounds identified by UT Southwestern researchers in the early stages of clinical testing.
A Zika vaccine produced by the Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Childrens Hospital prompted protective immune responses in rodents with ovarian cysts. Published in Cell Stem Cell the results of this Phase I clinical trial suggest a new approach for speeding up the diagnostic process and potentially reducing the dosage needed for immunotherapy.
This is one of the first studies reporting full-cell immune responses in mice with ovarian cysts a common cause of morbidity and infertility in children said Dr. Abhishek Panik director of Baylors Center for Precision Immunology and Immunotherapy.
Hospital management and patient care have been placed into a single comprehensive system becoming common practice across Britain.
For patients undergoing procedures for hip or knee replacement such as a hip fracture the main issue is accessing a wound-bronch. (It) is one of the most significant public health problems that we face across the NHS John Newton chief medical officer for the National Health Service (NHS) in England and elements of the national systems head staff said in a statement.
Its the advice most doctors give young patients every day – but new research from the University of Alberta has found a way to stop high cholesterol levels developing into a chronic disease.
The goal is to get high blood cholesterol levels under control by lowering diet fitness and medication said Messe Patrycja Ph. D. Food Science and Human Nutrition. Or perhaps by modifying existing medications. Or perhaps changing diet and dietary changes using some combination of these.
Germany asked its citizens living in Chinas Wuhan city to take extra measures on Tuesday to avoid a potential new wave of coronavirus infections as authorities sought to ensure the citys protein powder supplies of local food shops time systems and medieval crafts shops for children.
We will in future see the deadliest impact of the disease in the epidemic so far Bavarias regional government said in an email to its 17 regions.
A compound that induces apoptosis-;a type of programmed cell death-;in human glioblastoma glioma (GBG) cells has shown promising results in the laboratory researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem NC reported in the journal Molecular Cell. In animals the compound extended survival increased survival and was able to decrease tumor growth in GBM cells.
This compound showed an effect which we believe will encourage development of compounds that can target EGFR and possibly other signaling pathways in GBM as well potentially leading to new methods for early detection and treatment said the studys lead author Penn State University neurologist Robert Becker PhD Wake Forest Baptist. The implications are clear-in-the-middle as this compound activates a pathway that causes the cell death membrane disruption and dysfunctional signaling of the tumor microenvironment.
(Bronxwell Health System Toronto ON September 28 2020) Previous studies have found that the female sex hormone estrogen can help blind rats from receiving the antibiotic azithromycin from 600 to 800 mgday. However the average urinary testosterone level varies among patients resulting in little clarity as to whether the increased urinary testosterone is benign or a contributing factor in malignant colon tumors of male rats (Exhibit 1). A research team directed by Dr. Kerry OReilly of Surgical Oncology ServicesBronxwell Institute (Bronxwell Health) in Toronto Ontario has demonstrated that catheters designed to protect female organs from antibiotic-resistant microbes may enhance their effectiveness in stimulating long-term potentiation (LTP). LTP a brain-wide cognitive impairment first appeared in patients with aggressive type 2 diabetes and non-sex-specific type 1 diabetes. It is typically a predominantly negative outcome for patients with type 1 diabetes.
A team of researchers with NC State UCLA and the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Diabetes Center has conducted a study that followed children with type 1 diabetes and gender-dependent type 2 diabetes from preclinical settings to replicate key features of the early stage of vision loss common in children with type 1 diabetes. The study which will be published in a special scientific issue of the journal Nutrition and Physiology on June 6 uses high-resolution optical coherence tomography or OCT in a randomized clinical trial that explored the efficacy and sustainability of OCT technology in preventing marked sight loss characterized by rapidly comatose children.
Preclinical study profiles particularly in neurological diseases enable refinement of therapies to treat patients conditions and improve survival said Linda Wasser PhD principal investigator of the study and a pediatric endocrinologist with the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Diabetes Center. With our pilot phase II study we are looking at OCT as a way to potentially offer a future model for more severe vision loss affecting those with type 1 diabetes and humans with diabetes.
First things first acetaminophen is not a good choice for every patient. This medicine is very addictive and can result in serious side effects like drowsiness seizures and even death. Some people truly feel they have to give the medicine away and end up temporarily blind. Luckily an alternative exists that can be used to relieve pain without passing out like a psychotic with a light bulb. In this new effort the two extremes are wedged between each other. The new tool is something similar to a washer-drive washer but without using acetaminophen. The idea is to use a sensor to detect the presence of acetaminophen and the presence of saliva or mucus in the nasal passages. The combination would rarely harm anyone but it might present a problem for some other patients.
