Researchers compare a large cohort of transcriptomic dataset maps of gene regulation by SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Vaccination data from Puerto Rico strongly supports COVID19 booster shots

Mon, 10/25/2021 - 03:38
In a recent study, researchers from the U.S. examined the vaccine effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 infections in Puerto Rico.

Study findings may lead to new treatments to fight deadly C. difficile infections

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 09:06
A University of California, Irvine-led study suggests that the glucosyltransferase domain (GTD) is an ideal molecular target for therapeutic interventions for Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI). These findings may lead to new treatments to fight this deadly disease.

Research shows a link between infants' sleep and weight

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 08:56
Infants who sleep longer through the night and with fewer interruptions may be less likely to become overweight during their first six months of life, according to a study published in the journal SLEEP.

Breastfeeding may positively impact postmenopausal women's cognitive performance

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 08:53
A new study led by researchers at UCLA Health has found that women over the age of 50 who had breastfed their babies performed better on cognitive tests compared to women who had never breastfed.

Health care costs for people with rare diseases have been underestimated, study shows

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 08:29
A new, retrospective study of medical and insurance records indicates health care costs for people with a rare disease have been underestimated and are three to five times greater than the costs for people without a rare disease.

Nurses experience suicidal ideation in greater numbers than other workers

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 00:51
Mayo Clinic researchers report that nurses in the U.S. experience suicidal ideation in greater numbers than other general workers and those who do are less likely to tell anyone about it. The findings appear in the American Journal of Nursing.

Specific amino acid supplementation could prevent the development of dementia

Dementia- a condition involving the extreme loss of cognitive function- is caused by a variety of disorders, including Alzheimer's disease.

Gene therapy strategy against Angelman syndrome shows early promise

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 00:23
Scientists at the UNC School of Medicine have reported in the journal JCI Insight encouraging early tests of a gene therapy strategy against Angelman syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disorder that features poor muscle control and balance, hard-to-treat epilepsy, and intellectual disabilities.
