Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a fast-progressing, highly lethal illness that poses significant threat to global public health when not contained. The current outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as of February 26, 2019, has
2nd Annual Conference on Pediatric Nursing and Healthcare scheduled during June 17-18, 2019 in Dubai, UAE which aims to keep you updated with the best and most advanced practices in the field of pediatrics, nursing and health.
Substrate phosphoswitching: a novel way to regulate enzymatic activity by phosphorylation of its substrate
Cells sense a vast variety of signals by receptors that are distributed on their surface. This perception transduces internal physiological responses using signal pathways, a cascade of protein interacting to bring a change in the cell behavior.
Aspen trees grow abundantly and extensively across the forests of the northern hemisphere. They are early succession species that can quickly establish after fires or storms, and they also support a high biodiversity. While the biodiversity associated
Antibiotic resistance poses a major health issue worldwide. There has never been a greater need for new anti-microbials which are natural, active on multiple organisms and ideally beneficial to the patient. Bacteria such as E-Coli, Staphylococcus aureus
Dialectical behavior therapy is a cognitive theory-based intervention that has previously demonstrated effectiveness in treating a range of behavioral disorders. However, DBT can be challenging to implement in community-based settings. Little guidance is available on models to
Cholesterol is the most abundant lipid of the mammalian plasma membrane. It is well known that cholesterol influences membrane biophysical properties and regulates the activity of multiple types of ion channels, including K+ channels. The reported mechanisms
Neurogenesis is a process of birth of newborn neurons from neural stem cells (NSCs). It is a complex, multistep process which involves NSC proliferation, differentiation, migration, maturation and integration of newborn neurons into existing neuronal circuitry. Continuous
You have 100,000 km of plumbing (blood vessels) in your body. What then keeps them from leaking? This essential work is carried out by tiny cells called platelets, which are able to form a plug to stop
Heart failure means that the heart is not pumping blood as well as it should. The weak pumping function of the heart causes blood to back up into the blood vessels around the lungs causing cough and
The needs of carers of blood cancer survivors: are there differences between Australia rural and urban dwellers?
As cancer treatments are increasingly delivered on an outpatient basis, the burden on partners, relatives and friends or support persons increases. Such people play a critical role in helping cancer patients manage their care. This can take
Autoimmune blistering diseases occur when one’s own immune system attacks the skin and mucous membranes (such as your mouth) forming blisters. This group of diseases including pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, mucous membrane pemphigoid, and pemphigoid
Posted by Josh Miller The majority of diets come and go, and if you’ve tried as many as I have with less than great results, then you often wonder why you would bother with all the effort.
Cells are the simplest functional unit of biological life. The basic components of cells are taught in biology classrooms across the globe, but despite being widely studied, cells still contain mysteries. Recently, scientists have rediscovered the existence
The four major brain-specific cell types in the brain are: (i) neurons, which transmit and process information via electrical signals, (ii) oligodendrocytes, which insulate neuronal axons with fatty sheets called myelin to ensure fast and complete electrical
Human bones are often thought to be static tissues because of their hard structure. However, in addition to mineral they also contain collagen. This combination gives your bones flexibility in adapting to exercise. Adult bones can respond
The o-chlorophenol is a typical chlorophenol that is extensively used in synthesizing fungicides, preservatives, herbicides, and insecticides. As a highly toxic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic substance that poses serious ecological threats, o-chlorophenol has been listed as a priority
