Using technology to quit smoking makes it easier

The researchers said that most previous studies were based on smokers reporting how often they smoke while the new system tracks the sensor’s smoke activity more closely.   A new study found that smoking cessation technology can be a lot easier. Case Western Reserve University researchers have developed a new system that detects tobacco movements, sends text messages and motivational messages to help users quit smoking.   They used portable sensor technology to develop an automatic warning system that helps people quit smoking. The smartphone application initially limited to operating…

Antibodies that fight Ebola viruses are now a reality

Ebola virus disease was first reported in Central Africa in 1976; it has the potential to cause massive bleeding. The mortality rate is about 50%. The virus is transmitted by contact with contaminated body fluids, including blood and semen.   Finally, antibodies against three of the major Ebola viruses were developed. Researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center have come one step closer to developing a highly effective antibody treatment against these viruses that cause deadly diseases in humans.   The researchers found that the isolation of two potent monoclonal antibodies…

New study finds physical activity can reduce cancer risk

The study showed that a one-point increase in the WCRF / AICR score was associated with a 12% reduction in overall cancer risk; 14% less breast cancer and 12% less prostate cancer.   Healthy eating and non-alcoholic physical activity can help reduce the overall risk of cancer and reduce the risk of breast, prostate and colon cancer. Researchers from the American Association for Cancer Research have analyzed nutritional values that have shown the greatest benefit of a diet that reduces alcohol and reduces cancer risk.   The researchers estimated that…

New genes linked to childhood nephrotic syndrome identified

Most patients develop a corticosteroid-responsive nephrotic syndrome that responds to steroids and immunosuppressants and goes into remission, but at least 20% of the cases are resistant strains that occur repeatedly in adulthood.   Nephrotic syndrome in childhood is one of the most common chronic kidney diseases in children. A Japanese research team led by Professor Kazumoto Iijima, associate professor Kandai Nozu and Tomoko Horinouchi, identified a group of genes that are closely linked to the development of the infantile nephrotic syndrome.   Also known as nephrosis, the infantile nephrotic syndrome…

Bio markers to prevent stillbirth detected

The researchers found biomarkers to predict the signs of fetal death in the first trimester, including a fifth previously unknown blood substance called verruculotoxin.   New biomarkers found in maternal blood could help doctors stop the baby’s death, researchers said. Lead author David Wishart said, “When we started to analyze the blood of women with dead children and compare them to healthy women, we found that there was a chemical difference, which suggests that we predict the birth of dead babies and possibly prevent it. “   Using a mass…

Childhood Blindness Gene Discovered

After analyzing the genomes of each member of a consanguineous family with affected children, geneticists have identified pathogenic mutations in a new gene, MARK3 as a cause.     Our genome consists of 20,000 genes that can all cause disease. Researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, working in collaboration with scientists from Pakistan and the US, have investigated a recessively inherited disorder that destroys the eye and blindness in children.     After analyzing the genomes of each member of a consanguineous family with affected children, geneticists have…

Connection between smell and memory uncovered

The findings provide a new perspective on the visualization of the senses in memory and may explain why the loss of the ability to feel was recognized as an early symptom of Alzheimer’s disease.     A mechanism has been discovered that allows the brain to create vivid sensory memories. Neurobiologists at the University of Toronto have highlighted how rich sensory memories are created and stored in our brains. By using odor as a model, the results offered a new perspective on how the senses are represented in memory and…

Talking therapy not beneficial for schizophrenia treatment: Study

The study shows that cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy (CBTP) has only marginally and only temporarily improved the functioning of people with schizophrenia.   According to a study, speech therapy has no utility for improving quality of life and reducing stress in people with schizophrenia.   The findings, published in the journal BMC Psychology, showed that cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis (CBTP) had only a slight transient improvement in the functioning of people with schizophrenia.   “With almost zero effect size, there is no indication that CBTP improves the quality of life of…

P2X4 receptor helps in curing multiple sclerosis

In a recent study, this microglial receptor has been shown to increase its anti-inflammatory potential to reduce multiple sclerosis damage and, above all, to stimulate the body’s repair response.   A receptor called P2X4 increases the repair response of the body when it comes to multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that attacks and destroys a structure called the “myelin sheath” whose integrity is essential to the proper functioning of the brain and spinal cord.   In a recent study, this microglial receptor has been shown to increase…
