Community pharmacy, also known as retail pharmacy, is the most common type of pharmacy that allows the public access to their medications and advice about their health. Traditionally known as a chemist, it is the healthcare facility that is responsible for the provision of pharmaceutical service to a specific community group or region.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the most common neurodegenerative movement disorder, afflicting more than 10 million people worldwide and more than one million Americans. While there is no cure for PD, current therapies focus on treating motor symptoms and fail to reverse, or even address, the underlying neurological damage.
An artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology rapidly diagnoses rare disorders in critically ill children with high accuracy, according to a report by scientists from University of Utah Health and Fabric Genomics, collaborators on a study led by Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego. The benchmark finding, published in Genomic Medicine, foreshadows the next phase of medicine, where technology helps clinicians quickly determine the root cause of disease so they can give patients the right treatment sooner.
AZoLifeSciences speaks to researchers about their latest protein research, and how protein songs can be created from classical music.
Pairing a newly developed gel with immunotherapy that was delivered to post-surgical mouse brains with glioblastoma, a highly malignant and deadly cancer, improved the immunotherapy's effectiveness, report researchers from the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and colleagues.
Tiny synthetic particles known as dendrimers have been shown to avoid detection by our immune system and so could be used to develop a new system to deliver drugs into the body without triggering a reaction.
Rutgers Professor Lewis Nelson is available to discuss the dangers of people taking the livestock deworming drug ivermectin to try to treat COVID-19.
Zebrafish- small, fast-growing creatures who share many of the same genes as humans- are instrumental to many biologists, who find them uniquely well suited for studying a wide range of questions, from how organisms develop to how the nervous system drives behavior.
Albumin activates a proton channel which allows sperm to penetrate and fertilize an egg and white blood cells to secrete large amounts of inflammatory mediators.
If the genome is considered the recipe for life, then base pairs represent the individual ingredients. DNA is made up of these chemical structures, and every living thing on the planet has just four of them.
New research, headed by scientists from Washington State University, has revealed a protein that could be crucial for enhancing treatments after a heart attack.
Researchers have discovered a gene, OTUD7A, that impacts the development of Ewing sarcoma, a bone cancer that occurs mainly in children.
Antibiotics used to treat common bacterial infections may potentially be used to treat human illnesses such as cancer, at least theoretically.
Scientists from the UK's University of Bath explore racemases - an important type of enzyme that is linked to certain cancers and other life-threatening diseases while also being critical to cell function - in a paper published in the prestigious journal Chemical Society Reviews. The scientists also propose new strategies for finding drugs that neutralize these enzymes.
MUSC Hollings Cancer Center researchers are exploring the use of peptide carriers for the delivery of small RNA drugs as a novel treatment for cancer. The team's recent work, published online March 19 in the Molecular Therapy - Nucleic Acids journal, lays the foundation for developing a clinically relevant peptide carrier RNAi-based drug treatment strategy for human oral cancer.
The pivotal role played by the APP protein in Alzheimer’s disease is well known.
The 57 Valencian high school students who participated in the SWICEU team’s “En busca de nuevos Fleming” project present their findings.
AZoLifeSciences speaks to researchers from the University of Bath about their latest research that led to the development of a device that can detect 'spice'.
For a long time, James McKerrow, MD, PhD, dean of the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of California San Diego, has investigated neglected tropical diseases, which are chronic, disabling parasitic infections mainly affecting the poor and underserved communities in developing nations.
A new substance could improve the treatment of persistent cancers. Researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the University of Greifswald have developed a new inhibitor that makes drug-resistant tumor cells respond again to chemotherapy.
Statistical modeling developed by Oregon State University researchers has confirmed that changes to melanoma patients' gut microbiome led them to respond to a type of treatment capable of providing long-term benefit.
