Researchers have developed an implantable, biofuel-powered sensor that runs on sugar and can monitor a body's biological signals to detect, prevent and diagnose diseases.
Females are born with a finite number of eggs that come from a much larger pool of millions of precursor cells. New research shows how cells that have experienced DNA damage are removed from this pool, so only the highest quality oocytes can become eggs.
Chronic back pain is the number one cause of years lived with disability worldwide. Medical researchers have now identified three novel genetic variants associated with chronic back pain.
Scientists find that high levels of a hormone called FGF23 are linked to changes in brain structure. They are associated with structural changes in the brain's frontal lobes.
Scientists have determined one of the ways in which cancers in remission can spring back into action. This knowledge has inspired a new treatment idea designed to prevent cancer recurrence and metastasis.
Injections of corticosteroids directly into the eye are superior to those placed adjacent to the eye for treating uveitic macular edema, one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States, a new research study has found.
A new study could contribute to the development of alternatives to treat muscle weakness and atrophy. An article describes how rats subjected to an aerobic exercise routine preserved their muscle's contractility properties and their autophagic system's memory even after having a sciatic nerve injury induced.
A study has documented for the first time widespread inflammation in the brains of patients with the poorly understood condition called fibromyalgia.
Women in late pregnancy during darker months of the year may have a greater risk of developing postpartum depression once their babies are born. This is consistent with what is known about the relationship between exposure to natural light and depression among adults in the general population.
We feel the benefit of kind acts regardless of whether they are altruistic or strategically motivated.
