Washington [US], April 18 (ANI): According to a new study, maintenance of good oral health is more important than the use of antibiotics in dental procedures for some heart patients to prevent a heart infection caused by bacteria around the teeth.
Baltimore (Maryland) [US], April 18 (ANI): A recent study has pointed out that slurred speech, poor coordination, and sedative effects of drinking too much alcohol may actually be caused by the breakdown of alcohol products produced in the brain and not the liver as scientists currently think.
Tokyo [Japan], April 18 (ANI): A new species of large, tropical centipede of genus Scolopendra has been discovered by researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University and Hosei University in Okinawa and Taiwan.
New York [US], April 17 (ANI): Researchers at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine recently conducted a study on rats which suggested that the chemical which protects nerve cells also slows glaucoma, the leading cause of irreversible blindness.
Washington [US], April 17 (ANI): The findings of a large study on children discovered evidence that behavioural problems in kids who snore might be related to changes in the structure of their brain's frontal lobe.
Cincinnati (Ohio) [US], April 16 (ANI): University of Cincinnati researchers have found a newer, more effective treatment for the disease Pompe that could become the new standard of care for the rare condition.
Colorado [US], April 16 (ANI): According to a new assessment published today in the medical journal Lancet there is consistent, strong evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, is predominantly transmitted through the air.
Washington [US], April 16 (ANI): An imaging agent allows scientists to better visualize Enterobacterales infections in patients, helping to address pathogens that can be life-threatening and frequently resist antibiotics.
New York [US], April 16 (ANI): A study of 29 ferrets, which have been shown in laboratory studies to be susceptible to SARS-CoV-2, in a home with constant exposure to two human adults with symptomatic disease, one of whom was confirmed to be infected with SARS-CoV-2, finds no evidence of viral transmission from humans to ferrets; additional genetic sequence analysis suggested that ferrets possess genetic factors that confer resistance to SARS-CoV-2 infection, according to the authors.
Atlanta [US], April 15 (ANI): The findings of a new study by physicists at Emory University suggest that the dynamics of the neural activity of a mouse brain behave in a peculiar, unexpected way that can be theoretically modeled without any fine-tuning.
New Delhi [India], April 14 (ANI): A recent analysis by a team of German researchers that compared more than 30 state-of-the-art climate models from all around the world found that if global warming continues unchecked, summer monsoon rainfall in India will become stronger and more erratic in the coming years.
Washington [US], April 14 (ANI): A new research has suggested that an oral drug currently used in the clinical setting to treat neuromuscular diseases could also help prevent a common form of skin cancer caused by damage from ultraviolet-B radiation from the sun.
Washington [US], April 14 (ANI): The human scream signals more than fear of imminent danger or entanglement in social conflicts. Screaming can also express joy or excitement. For the first time, researchers have demonstrated that non-alarming screams are even perceived and processed by the brain more efficiently than their alarming counterparts.
Washington [US], April 13 (ANI): A team led by University of Minnesota researchers have discovered that deep-sea bacteria dissolve carbon-containing rocks, releasing excess carbon into the ocean and atmosphere. The findings will allow scientists to better estimate the amount of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, the main driver of global warming.
Brighton [UK], April 12 (ANI): Researchers during a recent study found that common foxgloves brought to the Americas have rapidly evolved to change flower length in the presence of a new pollinator group, hummingbirds.
