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.
Humans are not just pumping iron in the gym, or not just oxygenating muscle cells, which keeps those muscles healthy, powerful, and developing—a process known as hypertrophy—that is defined as an increase in muscle mass, caused by an increase in muscle cell size.
After tumors are surgically removed, a novel biodegradable gel increases the immune system’s capacity to keep cancer away.
A new study led by researchers at University of Utah Health details a novel mechanism that infectious bacteria use to quickly adjust to environmental stress. The discovery could help explain why certain types of common infections-;such as urinary tract and bloodstream infections like sepsis- are hard to get rid of.
Hormones or chemical messengers link to cell membrane receptors to tweak how the cell responds, creating a metaphorical interaction and traffic network on the surface of cell membranes inside human body.
Years of toil in the laboratory have revealed how a marine bacterium makes a potent anti-cancer molecule.
Scientists have precisely studied the skin’s resistant barrier layer, producing the most thorough molecular map of its form to aid in the creation of novel skin products and treatments.
Melanoma patients receiving therapy that helps their immune system kill cancer cells respond to treatment differently depending on the types of microbes in their gut, and new research suggests the microorganisms hindering therapy have more influence than the beneficial ones.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the human microbiome – the collection of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live on and within us – significantly contributes to our health.
A University of South Florida Health (USF Health) preclinical study offers molecular insight into how activated protein C (APC) may improve aging patients' tolerance to reperfusion injury – a potentially adverse effect of treatment for ischemic heart disease.
Could a new paradigm in digital health treat blinding disorders and possibly also be a conduit for treating other parts of the brain? A multi-disciplinary team of world-renowned researchers at USC are exploring this exciting possibility.
According to a recent research, enhancing the expression of one gene in cells that help the brain’s neurons, shields neurons in mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease.
A research team at the Medical University of South Carolina led by Carol Feghali-Bostwick, Ph.D., reports in the Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight that the E4 peptide reverses fibrosis, or scarring, in human and mouse tissues by activating an antifibrotic pathway that is common to all organ systems.
Driving up the immune response at the site of a cancer tumor with nanotechnology may help enhance immunotherapy treatments in advanced stages of the disease, new research in mice suggests.
New research from RCSI has demonstrated the significant role that an irregular body clock plays in driving inflammation in the body's immune cells, with implications for the most serious and prevalent diseases in humans.
A research collaboration has found that cancer invasion and migration in mice can be inhibited by controlling the stiffness of the cell membrane.
Neuroinflammatory diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and traumatic brain injury, have been linked to deposits of a tough protein known as fibrin, derived from the blood clotting factor fibrinogen.
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.
