Zinc is an essential mineral that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Zinc is also found in many cold lozenges and some over-the-counter drugs sold as cold remedies.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that mothers to continue breastfeeding for two years or beyond.
A new study has found that a highly antibiotic-resistant strain of the superbug MRSA – methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus – has emerged in livestock in the last 50 years, probably due to widespread antibiotic use in pig farming.
Eating a larger proportion of protein while dieting leads to better food choices and helps avoid the loss of lean body mass, according to a Rutgers study.
Researchers reviewed nanoparticles (NPs) as next-generation whitening agents for teeth.
Investigators from the Women's Guild Lung Institute at Cedars-Sinai have discovered that zinc, a common mineral, may reverse lung damage and improve survival for patients with a deadly age-related condition known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are often particularly difficult to treat because the pathogens have developed resistance to common antibiotics.
Zinc-filled oysters are often linked to improved libido and sexual activity, and now scientists at Flinders University are calling for more serious investigations into how marine organism compounds can help human fertility.
The Age-Related Eye Disease Studies (AREDS and AREDS2) established that dietary supplements can slow progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the most common cause of blindness in older Americans. In a new report, scientists analyzed 10 years of AREDS2 data.
Researchers demonstrate how copper NPs can potentially be incorporated into filters, PPE, facemasks, and clothing to effectively inactivate SARS-CoV-2.
Scientists review the current research on how changes in diet can affect infection with SARS-CoV-2.
A new study aimed to describe the roles of certain specific mutations in SARS-CoV-2 strains, with respect to their ability to conformationally stabilize S-protein structure resulting in enhanced receptor-binding domain ACE2 binding.
A six-year study of nearly 100,000 women in Botswana has provided new evidence that relatively inexpensive daily diet supplementation of iron, folic acid and vitamin supplementation in pregnancy can reduce complications at birth.
In a recent study posted to the medRxiv* preprint server, researchers applied deep learning methods and identified genetic variants linked to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2)-caused mortality.
A new study explores the effects of diet on COVID-19 outcomes.
In a recent study published in Diabetes, researchers assessed the direct and indirect effects of SARS-CoV-2 on human pancreatic islets.
Researchers revealed that native FokI relaxation might be induced, resulting in FokI-assisted digestion of DNA duplexes and DNA/RNA hybrids.
A new study discusses possible mechanisms of long COVID in children and how they might relate to their dietary intake of important vitamins and elements.
Scientists have discovered a new generation of angiotensin receptor blockers that may be used to treat coronavirus disease 2019.
Researchers performed high-throughput evolutionary analyses of genes encoding 334 SARS-CoV-2 viral-interacting proteins of modern humans, primates, and bats.
Hybrid material helps ferry genetic cargo to target cells. An emerging type of material called a metal-organic framework(MOF) could help improve the delivery of genetic material for treating disease.
