Washington [US], July 28 (ANI): It is commonly assumed that cities are detrimental to mental health but recent empirical research covering several US cities predicts lower depression rates in larger cities.
Washington [US], July 27 (ANI): The findings of new research conducted on monkeys revealed that T cells are not critical for the recovery of primates from acute COVID-19 infections. Their depletion does not induce severe disease, and T cells do not account for the natural resistance of rhesus macaques to severe COVID-19.
Washington [US], July 27 (ANI): Researchers at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center believe that studying tags, or modifications to cell-free DNA (cfDNA), might lead to a better understanding of how to assess, and possibly modulate, treatment approaches for cancer and other diseases.
New Delhi [India], July 26 (ANI): Doctors at a Gurugram hospital have successfully implanted a custom-made 3D printed hip implant, said to be the largest in India, on a 60-year-old Tanzanian patient who had a damaged pelvic bone.
Delaware [US], July 26 (ANI): During a recent study, scientists developed a new indicator for monitoring danger to the world's rainforests, which have been losing the capacity to cycle carbon and water.
New York [US], July 26 (ANI): During a new multinational observational study, two types of drugs that are recommended as the first treatment for high blood pressure patients were found equally effective in improving cardiovascular outcomes. But the study pointed out that the more popular type causes slightly more side effects.
Washington [US], July 25 (ANI): Small and seemingly specialized, the brain's locus coeruleus (LC) region has been stereotyped for its outsized export of the arousal-stimulating neuromodulator norepinephrine.
Washington [US], July 25 (ANI): Findings from a new study led by researchers at Washington State University have solved a small piece of that puzzle, bringing scientists one step closer to solving the mystery of aging.
New Delhi [India], July 25 (ANI): Doctors recently treated a 51-year-old patient suffering from a recurrent chemo-resistant carcinoma in his trachea by using a Y-shaped tracheal stent. The patient had a few days or weeks to live but stenting prolonged life.
