According to a study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, of all the opioid medication prescriptions that are distributed annually in the US, more than half are for patients diagnosed for mental illness such as depression and anxiety.
A new study has offered insights into the association between night shift work and increased cancer risk, as well as pointing towards a potential solution.
We would normally divide the additive manufacturing technology into seven different groups. Whilst they all focus on building layer by layer, the way in which those layers are constructed varies according to the different type of additive manufacturing technology that's being used.
In a new medical breakthrough, reported in the journal Ophthalmology, doctors have successfully implanted magnets within a patient’s eyes to correct a condition called “nystagmus” also called “dancing eyes”.
It is now much easier than before to do a complete DNA sequencing of patients to look at all the three billion letters that make up a person’s genetic code or genome. DNA sequencing prices have fallen and it could soon be a part of routine medical tests experts suggest.
A new report published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine shows evidence supporting three interventions for cognitive decline and dementia—cognitive training, blood pressure management for people with hypertension, and increased physical activity, which might slow down cognitive decline and the onset of dementia.

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.

Antibiotic resistance is happening in hospitals quite frequently. Probably the main place where resistant organisms and pathogens are acquired is in intensive care units (ICUs).

The mTOR pathway is probably the main pathway in humans and other animals that drives growth. That is, the accumulation of mass and adding mass to make an organism bigger by both making more cells, and making cells grow and become bigger.

Traditionally, we use biopsies to try to predict how cancer spreads. There are a number of molecular markers that are used, but biopsy is a limited approach. Now, the current trend is to use liquid biopsy, which is basically a blood sample.
