Researchers link sedentary behavior to thinning in brain region critical for memory
This study does not prove that too much sitting causes thinner brain structures, but instead that more hours spent sitting are associated with thinner regions, researchers said. In addition, the researchers focused on the hours spent sitting, but did not ask participants if they took breaks during this time.The researchers next hope to follow a group of people for a longer duration to determine if sitting causes the thinning and what role gender, race and weight might play in brain health related to sitting.IMPACTMedial temporal lobe thinning can be a precursor to cognitive decline and dementia in middle-aged and older adu...

Achieving Success in Emerging Markets
In developed countries, the quality of medicines is consistently good – regardless of whether a medicine is an original formulation or generic – due to long-standing and strict quality regulations. However, this is not always the case in emerging markets, where access to reliable, quality medicines has been inconsistent historically.The situation is changing, and many emerging markets are implementing stricter guidelines. In 2017, the World Health Organization said one-in-ten medicines in low-and middle-income countries were found to be substandard or falsified, an improvement on one-in-four in 2007.Beyond qual...

Reflections on Big Data in Healthcare: Exploring Emerging Roles
In the NNLM Big Data in Healthcare: Exploring Emerging Roles course, we asked participants, as they progressed through the course to consider the following questions: Do you think health sciences librarians should get involved with big data in healthcare? Where should librarians get involved, if you think they should? If you think they should not, explain why. You may also combine a “should/should not” approach if you would like to argue both sides. NNLM will feature responses from different participants over the coming weeks. Written by: Nicole Montgomery, MISLT, AHIP, Librarian, Assistant Professor, CoxHealt...

Intraoral scan bodies in implant dentistry: A systematic review
ConclusionsISBs are complex implant-positioning-transfer devices that play an essential role in the digital workflow and fabrication of accurately fitting implant-supported restorations. With scanner technology rapidly evolving and becoming more widespread, future studies are needed and should be directed toward all parts of the digital workflow when using ISBs. By understanding the basic components of ISBs and how they relate to digital scanning and CAD-CAM technology, more emphasis may be placed on their importance and usage in the digital workflow to ensure accurate transfer of implant position to the virtual and analog...

The Medical Device Behind the Discovery of a New Human Structure
What on Earth is this thing? That is the question David Carr-Locke, MD, and his colleagues asked when they discovered a microanatomical network of interconnected spaces, filled with fluid and lined by collagen with a unique arrangement, that appears to be present throughout the body. Whether or not this network is actually a newly discovered human organ is debatable. What is clear, however, is that this discovery is very widespread throughout the body and contains a lot of fluid, said Carr-Locke, clinical director of the Center for Advanced Digestive Care at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian...

Inhibiting metabolism found to be effective in treating aggressive form of lung cancer
FINDINGSResearchers from UCLA and Long Beach Memorial Medical Center have found that two targeted therapies could be more effective if used in combination to treat squamous cell carcinomas of the lung. The two drugs, MLN128 and CB-839, individually target the metabolism of key nutrients glucose and glutamine, respectively, prohibiting the cancer from switching metabolic gears between glucose (a simple sugar) and glutamine (an amino acid) to tap vital sources of energy. This switch enables the cancer cells to adapt their metabolism and evade treatments.BACKGROUNDNon-small cell lung cancer makes up about 85 percent of all lu...

ConclusionSuperimposition of digital models is useful to analyse tooth movement in the three planes of space, presenting advantages over the method of cephalogram superimposition. It seems feasible to superimpose digital models in the lower arch in patients without growth by using a coordinate system based on the palatal rugae and occlusion. The described method aims to advance the difficult procedure of superimposing digital models in the mandibular arch, but further research is nonetheless required in this field.
