Petri dish shows what bathroom hand dryer blows on hands
Nichole Ward, who appears to work in some sort of scientific lab in Carlsbad, California, took to Facebook last week to share the troubling results of an experiment.
Authors: Kamstra R, Pilon D, Lefebvre P, Emond B, Joshi K Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare treatment patterns and Medicaid spending between schizophrenia patients initiating once-monthly paliperidone palmitate (PP1M) and oral atypical antipsychotics (OAA) within four comorbid populations: cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. METHODS: Five-state Medicaid data identified comorbid adults with schizophrenia initiating PP1M or OAA (index) from 09/2009 balanced with inverse probability of treatment weighting. Chi-squared and t-tests compared index antipsychotic (AP) exposure (no gap>90 ...
Authors: Yakoob J, Abbas Z, Khan R, Tariq K, Awan S, Beg MA Abstract Introduction An association of Helicobacter pylori and common protozoal parasites in patients with abdominal discomfort and chronic diarrhoea is unclear and may be pathological. Materials and methods One hundred and sixty-one patients with diarrhoea were compared to 114 age and sex matched controls. Stool samples were examined by microscopy and DNA extracted for PCR with specific primers for H. pylori and protozoal parasites Blastocystis sp., Entamoeba sp. (Entamoeba histolytica, Entamoeba dispar and Entamoeba moshkovskii) and Giardia duodenalis (...
Authors: Amr KS, Abdelmawgoud H, Ali ZY, Shehata S, Raslan HM Abstract BACKGROUND: Macrovascular complications are the main cause of morbidity and mortality among the diabetic patients. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a family of small non-coding RNAs, play vital roles in the regulation of blood glucose level and the concurrent cardiovascular complications of type 2 diabetes. We hypothesized that plasma miR-126 and miR-210 are linked to coronary artery disease (CAD) in these diabetes patients. METHODS: Fasting blood samples were collected from 20 healthy volunteers and 100 patients with diabetes (54 patients without CAD an...
CONCLUSIONS: Combined NLR and CRP could be used as a novel, simple, low-cost, non-invasive test for SBP diagnosis. PMID: 29452544 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Zhao J, Guo N, Zhang L, Wang L Abstract INTRODUCTION: CA125 has poor sensitivity and low specificity for detecting early ovarian cancer. Serum ferritin is elevated in many malignancies. We evaluated the performance of ferritin alone and in combination with CA125 as a diagnostic tool to detect epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). METHODS: CA125 and ferritin were detected in the serum of 50 healthy control (HC), 50 women with benign gynaecological conditions and 124 women with EOC. The relationship between serum ferritin and CA125 and each of the clinicopathological parameters was assessed, and their diagnos...
KEEPING fit in older age helps stave off Alzheimer ’s disease, according to research. Scientists have discovered that bursts of exercise, such as a bike ride or a brisk walk, boost “white matter” tissue found deep within the brain.
