Researchers at the University of Malta have found a possible reason for the ongoing and often debilitating symptoms experienced by long COVID-19 patients.
In a study by neuroscientists from the University of California, Irvine, older adults were exposed to a fragrance in their bedrooms for two hours every night for six months. The results were impressive – the participants saw a 226% increase in cognitive capacity compared to the control group. This technique is non-invasive and easy to…
A recent study by researchers at George Washington University has found that lead exposure during pregnancy or childhood increases the likelihood of engaging in criminal behavior as an adult. Prior research has already established a link between lead exposure and criminal behavior at the population level. However, this is the first review to examine the…
Scientists at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have discovered what they believe to be the central mechanism behind cognitive decline associated with normal aging.
A recent study has revealed a new, simpler way of controlling mosquito-borne diseases. The study found that targeting only the very bottom of a room’s walls with insecticide can eliminate most mosquitoes, which can help to reduce the spread of diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika virus.
According to a study led by a researcher from the Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), the United States could have prevented 1.1 million deaths in 2021 if it had mortality rates similar to other wealthy nations.
Prof. Lewis Halsey and his team at the University of Roehampton, UK have conducted research to determine the upper critical temperature (UCT) for human survival. The researchers found that the resting metabolic rate, which measures the energy the body consumes just to keep functioning, can be higher when people are in hot and humid conditions.
Researchers led by Lund University in Sweden have assisted microbiologists in Ukraine in investigating bacterial resistance among the war-wounded patients treated in hospitals. The results, which were recently published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, reveal that many of the patients were affected by bacteria that exhibited an extremely high level of antibiotic resistance.
The ASTAR Infectious Diseases Labs (ASTAR ID Labs) and the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) researchers have published a study in the Journal of Medical Virology, that shows that the extended inflammation observed in COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized is reduced to healthy levels within two years of the first infection.
A study by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, found that DNA can fold into complex, three-dimensional structures that mimic the functions of proteins.
