Can having a skin condition impact the quality of your life? Absolutely, claim researchers who have set out to find the best tool to measure the impact on patients.
Antibiotics can successfully help rid a patient of chronic urinary tract infection symptoms, according to a new clinical study. The research highlights the growing concern of many practitioners that the tests they rely on to diagnose urinary tract infections are inadequate.
Results from a new study indicate that, when performed appropriately, chemical peels can be a safe treatment option for people with darker skin.
A close examination of national health data indicate that the rate of biological aging appears to be more delayed for all Americans, but particularly for men, which may extend their lives. Researchers cite advancements in medicine as one possible reason for the deceleration.
Young, resting neural stem cells in the brains of mice store large clumps of proteins in specialized cellular trash compartments known as lysosomes, researchers have found.
Researchers have found a possible explanation for the difficulty in spatial orientation experienced sometimes by elderly people. In the brains of older adults, they detected an unstable activity in an area that is central for spatial navigation.
The absence of TTP, a protein critical to the control of inflammation, may lead to rapid and severe bone loss, according to a new study.
A group of older people who have exercised all of their lives, were compared to a group of similarly aged adults and younger adults who do not exercise regularly. The results showed that those who have exercised regularly have defied the aging process, having the immunity, muscle mass, and cholesterol levels of a young person.
Researchers have designed sugar molecules that block E. coli bacteria from binding to urinary tissues, allowing the bacteria to be washed out of the urinary tract. The compounds represent a step toward treating UTIs without antibiot...
People who live in areas where they are exposed to more of the sun's rays, specifically UV-B rays, may be less likely to develop multiple sclerosis (MS) later in life, according to a new study. Exposure in childhood and young adulthood may also reduce risk.
A dying worm experiences rigor mortis early in the death process, rather than after the main event as it is for humans, according to a new study.
A group of genes and genetic switches involved in age-related brain deterioration have been identified. The research found that changes to one of these genes, called Dbx2, could prematurely age brain stem cells, causing them to grow more slowly.
Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries may increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease earlier in life, according to a new study.
In addition to restoring the pre-pregnancy shape of the abdomen, abdominoplasty ('tummy tuck') surgery with muscle repair can improve back pain and urinary incontinence after childbearing, reports a new study.
People whose eyes show signs of small changes in blood vessels at age 60 may be more likely to develop thinking and memory problems by the time they are 80 than people with healthy eyes, according to a new study.
The prospects – and consequences – of ageing are of concern to us all, especially when considering the likelihood of developing wrinkles. They are not only a hallmark of ageing but also play a fundamental role in how we physically interact with many products and devices, from moisturiser cream and make up to razor and the fabrics of our clothes.
Our bodies are not just passively growing older.
Patients may score slightly lower on certain memory tests after having surgery and anesthesia.
Physicists have devised a new method of investigating brain function, opening a new frontier in the diagnoses of neurodegenerative and aging related diseases.
A research study demonstrates in mice the biological relevance of sex in the effects of accelerated ageing caused by a chronic treatment of D-galactose, a sugar found abundantly in milk and to a lesser extent in fruits and vegetables. Show More Summary
