There are dozens of studies, innovations, and research findings released everyday by institutions and clinics across the world. Here’s a look at some of the other notable health reports from May 24.
Polymersomes efficiently deliver siRNA to treat breast cancers in preclinical model
Eugenia Kharlampieva, Ph.D., and Eddy Yang, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Alabama at Birmingham have demonstrated a 100-nanometer polymersome that safely and efficiently carries PARP1 siRNA to triple-negative breast cancer tumors in mice.
COVID Vaccine Trial Locations Infuenced in Vaccine Efficacy Results
A new study by a University of Arkansas information systems researcher and his colleague at the University of Waikato in New Zealand shows that COVID vaccine trials conducted in geographic locations with low infection rates had higher efficacy results, compared to trials in locations with high infection rates.
May/June 2022 Annals of Family Medicine tip sheet
A new study published in Annals of Family Medicine examined general practitioners’(GP) understanding of appropriate ultrasound use versus how early adopters actually use it in their practices.
New gene identified in arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy
Researchers from the group of Eva van Rooij used advanced sequencing technology to better understand the heart disease arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, in which heart muscle tissue is replaced by fat cells.
Continuity of Primary Care Reduces Hospitalizations in People with Chronic Kidney Disease
People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) require three- to eight-times higher levels of acute care than the general population for comorbidities such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Aging (Aging-US) Sponsors Systems Aging Gordon Research Conference
Aging (Aging-US) is sponsoring the Systems Aging Gordon Research Conference, “Systemic Processes, Omics Approaches and Biomarkers in Aging,” from May 29 to June 3, 2022, at the Grand Summit Hotel at Sunday River in Newry, Maine, USA.
Even in the operating room, team chemistry matters, study finds
But happiness and excitement may be overrated, at least where performance is concerned, suggests new research from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.
Capturing cortical connectivity close-up
New research from the University of Pittsburgh shows that generating detailed maps is indeed possible with a new imaging method that offers high contrast and high spatial resolution.
High Social Vulnerability Predicts Worse Long-Term Outcomes After Traumatic Injury
A team of investigators led by Juan P. Herrera-Escobar, MD, MPH, of the Brigham’s Center for Surgery and Public Health, found that living in an area with higher social vulnerability is strongly associated with worse mental and physical health outcomes after a traumatic injury.
Stepped wedge cluster randomized trials present advantages, challenges in comparison to other research methodologies for primary care practice improvements
The Stepped Wedge Cluster Randomized Trial is a research methodology that has been growing in popularity, particularly for pragmatic implementation and dissemination trials.
While the fetal clock develops, mom’s behavior tells the time
During fetal development, before the biological clock starts ticking on its own, genes within the fetus’s developing clock respond to rhythmic behavior in the mother, according to a new study publishing May 24th in the open-access journal PLOS Biology by Alena Sumová and colleagues of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.
Data contradict fears of COVID-19 vaccine effects on pregnancy and fertility
New experiments conducted in mice add to mounting evidence in opposition to a popular claim that COVID-19 vaccination during early pregnancy may cause birth defects or fetal growth problems.
