In a recent study published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics, researchers estimate the risk of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) in Denmark. MIS-C is a severe manifestation of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in children and adolescents. Study: Risk and Phenotype of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Vaccinated and
Research led by Drs. Yuhai Zhao and Walter J Lukiw at the LSU Health New Orleans Neuroscience Center and the Departments of Cell Biology and Anatomy, Neurology and Ophthalmology, reports for the first time a pathway that begins in the gut and ends with a potent pro-inflammatory toxin in brain cells contributing to the development

Behavioral scientists have long researched how to help children cope with extreme adversity – such as poverty or exposure to violence. Yanping Jiang, a researcher at the Rutgers Institute for Health, thinks she’s found the answer in rural China. Building on previous studies of children in China whose parents are living with HIV or have
Gender-diverse youth are at an increased risk of suicide and depression, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the prevalence of gender diversity is largely unknown-;especially in rural areas, where studies of the topic are rare. To fill that knowledge gap, researchers at West Virginia University-; along with their colleagues at the
In a recent study published in Nature, researchers explored the mechanisms underlying the bactericidal action of teixobactin at an atomic level. Study: Teixobactin kills bacteria by a two-pronged attack on the cell envelope. Image Credit: nokwalai/Shutterstock Background There have been increasing concerns over antimicrobial resistance; therefore, developing antibiotics with novel mechanisms is essential for microbial
Hong Kong is reducing the amount of time travelers will need to serve hotel quarantine, from seven days down to three starting Friday. “The seven-day quarantine hotel arrangement will be changed to three days in a quarantine hotel, plus four days of home medical surveillance,” Chief Executive John Lee said at a press conference Monday.
The immune boosting benefits of a tuberculosis vaccine can be seen in infants more than one year after vaccination, according to a new study. The research, led by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) and published in Science Advances, has shown how the BCG vaccine, developed to prevent the risk of tuberculosis, can produce a
Investigators at Cedars-Sinai and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have identified a component in the intestine that plays a critical role in repairing damaged tissue. Scientists found that endothelial cells in the lymphatic vessels produce molecules that are essential for the maintenance and regulation of stem cells and tissues in the intestine. These

A clinical trial is only as powerful as its participants. For years, researchers have struggled to fill clinical trials and enroll sufficiently diverse groups of patients for results to reflect the broader population, in part because of stringent guidelines on who can participate. In an effort to include a larger and more diverse population, an

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego have joined a nationwide study to better understand the long-term impact of COVID-19 on patients in the United States across all demographic groups. The $1.15 billion, four-year study, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is called the RECOVER
Researchers from the National Institutes of Health have developed a three-dimensional structure that allows them to see how and where disease mutations on the twinkle protein can lead to mitochondrial diseases. The protein is involved in helping cells use energy our bodies convert from food. Prior to the development of this 3D structure, researchers only
Following Friday’s much stronger-than-anticipated nonfarm payrolls report for July, the 10-Year Treasury yield jumped to more than 2.8% and the stock market began pricing in a higher probability that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates by 75 basis points at its September meeting.
