Overweight, obese children at increased risk of developing surgical site infectios, study shows

Overweight and obese children are at the highest risk for the most common complications from surgery, an infection at the site of the surgical procedure. This according to a new study, recently published in the medical journal, Surgical Infections. [More]
New strategy may bring us one step closer to "fountain of youth”

New strategy may bring us one step closer to "fountain of youth”

It's an exciting time to be an elderly mouse. Researchers believe that by removing senescent cells (cells with a persistent damage response), which naturally accumulate with age, senior rodents can regrow hair, run faster, and improve organ function. [More]

Lactate component responsible for anti-tumor effects of plasma medicine, research shows

Lactate component responsible for anti-tumor effects of plasma medicine, research shows

Physical plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, together with solid, liquid, and gas, and can be completely or partially ionized (thermal/hot or non-thermal/cold plasma, respectively). [More]
Novel plasma medicine with anti-tumor effect discovered

Novel plasma medicine with anti-tumor effect discovered

Nagoya University researchers develop cold plasma-activated Ringer's solution for chemotherapy. The solution has anti-tumor effects in vitro and in vivo that derive from the lactate component. [More]

Geisinger physicians report opioid therapy to be ineffective in treating chronic pain

Geisinger physicians report opioid therapy to be ineffective in treating chronic pain

A new study by a pair of Geisinger Health System physicians reports that the use of opioid therapy to treat chronic pain is not only ineffective, it can actually increase the likelihood of more harmful consequences, including death. [More]
Applying quantitative microscopy to live cells

Applying quantitative microscopy to live cells

Microscopy's got a long history. It was developed about 350 years ago for scientists to visualize things they could discern, but not describe. The two pioneers of microscopy were Antoine van Leeuwenhoek, who developed the first microscope and soon after the renowned scientist, Robert Hooke. [More]

Research shows cellular component may play vital role in how lung cancer spreads

A cellular component known as the Golgi apparatus may play a role in how lung cancer metastasizes, according to researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center whose findings were reported in the Nov. 21 online issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation. [More]
Opioid exposure may impact healing in patients with chronic wounds

Opioid exposure may impact healing in patients with chronic wounds

Patients with chronic wounds who never receive opioids heal faster than those who do receive the drugs, according to a new study by George Washington University (GW) researcher Victoria Shanmugam, M.D. [More]
Researchers create detailed blueprint of how the body transports zinc to maintain good health

Researchers create detailed blueprint of how the body transports zinc to maintain good health

Zinc is essential for wound healing, for vision, for DNA creation, for our senses of taste and smell, even for sexual health. But despite its importance, scientists have never fully understood the mechanism that moves the mineral through the body - until now. [More]
