Washington [US], August 8 (ANI): For unknown causes, men have greater rates of most cancers than women. A recent study suggested that the cause may be underlying biological sex differences rather than behavioural differences relating to smoking, alcohol consumption, food, and other factors.
Vienna [Austria], August 8 (ANI): Researchers discovered that the incidence of second primary lung cancer ranged from 4 per cent for the overall cohort of lung cancer patients to 8 per cent for those undergoing surgery for stage IA illness, according to data from the National Lung Screening Trial.
Adelaide [Australia], August 8 (ANI): Scientists have discovered a direct link between low levels of vitamin D and high levels of inflammation, providing an important biomarker to identify people at higher risk of or severity of chronic illnesses with an inflammatory component.
Washington [US], August 7 (ANI): Girls and boys might be more vulnerable to the negative effects of social media use at different times during their adolescence, say an international team of scientists.
Georgia [US], August 7 (ANI): The upcoming deadline that is stressing you out at work may really be beneficial to your brain, even if it feels like an anvil is hovering over your head, revealed recent research from the Youth Development Institute at the University of Georgia.
Brussels [Belgium], August 7 (ANI): Menopause before the age of 40 is associated with an increased risk of heart failure and atrial fibrillation, according to a study (ESC). The study included almost 1.4 million women, and the risk of atrial fibrillation and new-onset heart failure increases with younger menopausal ages.
Daejeon [South Korea], August 4 (ANI): The US Food and Drug Administration recently approved Aduhelm, a monoclonal antibody that targets amyloid beta (A), as the first Alzheimer's disease treatment (AD). Its impact on cognitive improvement, however, is controversial.
Georgia [US], August 7 (ANI): According to a new big study undertaken by researchers at the American Cancer Society, smoking and older age are the two most important risk factors associated with a relative and absolute five-year likelihood of developing any cancer (ACS).
Washington [US], August 7 (ANI): Scientists have found that elevated blood levels of an amino acid called homocysteine correlate strongly with the severity of an advanced form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. They also found vitamin B12 and folic acid could be used to prevent and/or delay disease progression.
Cambridge [UK], August 6 (ANI): Implantable insulin-releasing devices show potential as an alternate method of treating diabetes without insulin injections or cannula insertions. However, one barrier that has precluded their usage so far is that the immune system attacks them after implantation, generating a thick layer of scar tissue that limits insulin release.
Washington [US], August 6 (ANI): New research using genome editing technology has allowed scientists to create a model and assess a gene mutation associated with neuropsychiatric disorders in humans. The study has revealed how the mutation functions in the brain and affects anxiety and sociality.
Rochester [Monroe], August 6 (ANI): Kidney stones are associated with cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and chronic kidney disease in addition to being excruciatingly painful. If you've already had a kidney stone, your chance of getting another one within five years rises by 30 per cent, according to recent research.
Washington [US], August 5 (ANI): A team of scientists describe a series of studies designed to determine the relationship among insulin, fats and the vascular system and identified a new pathway in which the cells lining the blood vessels - called endothelial cells - drive the body's metabolism.
Tokyo [Japan], August 5 (ANI): Our cognitive and emotional processes depend heavily on monoamine neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Their evolutionary ancestors were metazoans, and while related genes' functions have remained mostly unchanged over time, genetic variation within and between species has been found to significantly affect animal mental traits like sociality, aggression, anxiety, and depression.
Washington [US], 5 August (ANI): According to a recent study, the Covid-19 pandemic had a negative impact on children's mental health, as many pediatric patients who suffered from headaches during the pandemic have experienced more frequent pain and worsening anxiety issues.
