According to a study published online in the Journal of Personalized Medicine, fitness activity trackers measure heart rates precisely but not the number of calories burned.
Scientists at the Scripps Translational Science Institute (TSRI) have mapped the entry of the Zika virus into the US by analysing its DNA. Miami was found to be a hot spot for transmission of Zika.
Cluster headaches are probably the most painful types of pain a human can suffer and it is for no small reason that this condition is also sometimes referred to as suicide headache.
One of the most widely used techniques in molecular biology is polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a method used to amplify small sections of DNA or RNA in a sample by adding primers, nucleotides, DNA polymerase and other reagents.
A study published online in the journal Heart found that regular consumption of chocolate may be associated with a lower risk of developing irregular heart rhythm, atrial fibrillation (heart flutter).
During this period, there was a revival of the Classical medicine of Ancient Greece and Rome, particularly the ideas of the Greek philosopher Hippocrates and the Roman physician Galen of Pergamon.

Cataract is a clouding of the lens within the eye and affects tens of millions of people. At present, there is no cure for cataract, and consequently the only available method to treat cataract is by surgical removal.
Choroideremia (CHM) is a rare genetic eye disease that affects the retina, which is the area at the back of the eye that processes all we see into signals that are sent to the brain via the optic nerve.
Scientists have been working hard to bring about a time in the future when we can grow “an eye in a dish” and use it for transplantation to restore the vision of someone who is blind, and they are not as far off as you might think.

ALS is a neurodegenerative disease in which motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. As ALS progresses, neurons are unable to send impulses to muscles, making voluntary muscle movement difficult, including standing, walking and sitting, as well as speaking and swallowing.
