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.
The results obtained are encouraging and the researchers could make headway in a multifunctional cell therapy system to treat inflammatory bowel disease.
TESTA Analytical Solutions e.K reports how the internationally respected Department of Chemistry at the University of Helsinki is using its BI-200SM light scattering goniometer for physicochemical characterization of polymers.
Anti-inflammatory substances based on components of human cells could one day improve treatment in patients. Researchers at the Institute of Pharmacy at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a method for producing those substances with controlled quality.
Over the past few months, a number of drugs have been under investigation to treat COVID-19 without well-established safety or data to support these claims.
A new study offers a better understanding of the properties of important proteins found inside the ciliary membrane.
University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists have discovered that a majority of back-pain patients they tested who were taking opioid painkillers produced anti-opioid antibodies.
Every year in the United States, about 800,000 people experience a stroke. Many are left with neurological complications such as paralysis on one side of the body, speech and language problems, vision issues, behavioral changes, and memory loss.
Diabetes, obesity and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are all common diseases that can lead to serious health implications.
For menopausal women who have difficulty sleeping, it might be because of chemicals in the environment.
A UB study published in the journal Neurotherapeutics has validated a new pharmacological target for Alzheimer's disease.
In their quest to find new drugs to treat deadly diseases, scientists study millions of molecules at high speed at the same time. Often it is enzymes that are investigated as targets in these 'high-throughput' screenings.
Critically ill COVID-19 patients who received a single dose of a drug that calms an overreacting immune system were 45% less likely to die overall, and more likely to be out of the hospital or off a ventilator one month after treatment, compared with those who didn't receive the drug, according to a new study by a team from the University of Michigan.
An international team of researchers has analyzed how SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, hijacks the proteins in its target cells.
The SARS-CoV-19 virus initially has a limited capability to invade, attacking only one intracellular genetic target, the aryl hydrocarbon receptors (AhRs).
In the U.S., someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds, and yet researchers have not had a model that fully mimics what occurs in the human heart after a heart attack.
A USC School of Pharmacy-led team has engineered a new, faster way to make drugs that precisely target malignant cells - while leaving healthy tissue undamaged - that could lead the way to better treatments for numerous types of cancer.
A team of scientists from Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina has developed a novel flow cytometry technique that can, for the first-time, quantify protein production in T-cells.
Insilico Medicine announces the publication of a new research paper titled "Molecular Generation for Desired Transcriptome Changes With Adversarial Autoencoders" in Frontiers in Pharmacology.
For the past 70 years, the best indicator of life expectancy for a patient with glioblastoma (GBM) -- the most common and the most aggressive brain cancer -- has simply been age at diagnosis.
Researchers from North Carolina State University and Collaborations Pharmaceuticals have created a free-to-use database of 14,000 known macrolactones - large molecules used in drug development - which contains information about the molecular characteristics, chemical diversity and biological activities of this structural class.
