New treatment for HPV-associated oropharynx cancer leads to excellent disease control, less side effects
Mayo Clinic researchers have found that a new, shorter treatment for patients with HPV-associated oropharynx cancer leads to excellent disease control and fewer side effects, compared to standard treatment.
Novel obesity treatments such as modulation of the gut microbiome and gene therapy are underutilized and could help fight the obesity epidemic, according to a new manuscript published in the Endocrine Society's journal, Endocrine Reviews.
Good sleep can be hard to come by. But a new study finds that if you can make up for lost sleep, even for just a few weekend hours, the extra zzz's could help reduce fatigue-induced clumsiness, at least in how you walk.
More than a year-and-a-half after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the scientific community is still feeling the effects of the vastly disruptive event -; and may for many years to come.
Broccoli, olives and chamomile could help in the fight against Covid, University of the West of Scotland (UWS) research has revealed.
Non-pharmaceutical interventions reduce likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 infection following high-risk exposure
Researchers have been investigating the efficacy of many of the non-pharmaceutical interventions applied and exploring the theory that mask use results in less severe symptoms in individuals infected with SARS-COV-2.
Researchers from Oregon State University have developed a system to assess the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to bind to ACE2 orthologs.
A new study has addressed these gaps in knowledge regarding the uptake of COVID-19 vaccines among essential workers.
The main objective of the study was to determine the rates of in-person schooling and understand the school-based mitigation measures that were modified over the semester.
Study: Understanding the reasons behind vaccine hesitancy is key to boosting global uptake of immunization
Exploring complex reasons behind hesitancy for new vaccinations and better education for healthcare professionals is key to boosting global uptake of immunization against diseases and viruses including Covid-19, a study shows.
An international research group led by the Centenary Institute has developed a world first genetic risk score (GRS) test able to identify patients at high-risk of developing alcohol-related cirrhosis.
A new preprint exploits big data to come up with some answers as to the incidence, treatment, and impact on healthcare systems of long covid.

The latest round of the REACT-1 study indicates SARS-CoV-2 continues to spread among children.
Bronchial asthma causes symptoms such as wheezing and cough due to chronic airway inflammation, but there is no fundamental treatment for it, leaving a desire for new prevention and treatment methods.
In a paper recently published in the journal Science Translational Medicine by Bordt et al. (October 19th, 2021), maternal SARS-CoV-2 infections are studied with particular regard to maternal-fetal antibody transfer and virus-induced placental interferon responses, finding a sexually dimorphic response that results in lesser antibody transfer to the male fetus.
Researchers in the United States have conducted comprehensive profiling of humoral immune responses in pregnant, lactating, and non-pregnant women following coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccination to probe differences in vaccine-induced immunity.
An international team of researchers, led by University of Houston Cullen Endowed Professor of biomedical engineering Mario Romero-Ortega, has progressed electroceutical research for treatment of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and sepsis.
A new study posted to the medRxiv* preprint server explores environmental surveillance of elementary school settings for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) through wastewater and surface samples monitoring. The researchers demonstrated that 93% of the COVID-19 cases in public elementary schools could be identified using this method.
A new study shows that system-level changes to the way cancer care is delivered can also eliminate Black-white disparities in survival from early-stage lung and breast cancer.
