Molecular testing has been launched into the stratosphere because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Clinical laboratories around the world have invested billions of dollars not only in test kits for SARS-CoV-2, but in new instruments, staff, and other resources to support the enormous volume of testing required.
The results of this landmark study could also revolutionize the development of new drug targets.
In a recent study conducted in mice, novel hydrogen peroxide producing bandages with electrical/chemical properties (electro-chemical bandages or e-bandages), under the control of wearable voltage devices, reduced methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) biofilm bacteria present in the wound by 99 percent after 2 days of treatment.
This third-generation sequencing tool may simplify genetic sample processing and decrease analysis time.
Eating disorders are often misunderstood as lifestyle choices gone awry or oversimplified as the unfortunate result of societal pressures. These misconceptions obscure the fact that eating disorders are serious and potentially fatal mental illnesses that can be treated effectively with early intervention.
Providing online access to critical mental health support enables 360-degree approach to diabetes management beyond medication
Researchers synthesized and evaluated the antitumoral (against several cancer cell lines) and antiviral [against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)] properties of 3-spiro-indolin-2-ones.
Genetic and clinical research reveals new type of macular dystrophy, a cause of central vision loss.
Healthcare fraud abuses erode the integrity and trust patients have with those in the healthcare industry.
Recent research has validated the hallmarks of healthy dietary patterns, such as the inclusion of vegetables, fruit, and whole grains, as well as the avoidance of processed foods. However, confusion and controversies persist. In fact, contemporary dietary recommendations barely account for the host gut-microbiome interactions with dietary patterns.
