Prolonged stress causes depression and behavioural issues

Neurons in a bow-shaped brain area get overactive after long stress exposure. Chronic stress clearly has an affect on our behaviour. It causes issues such as sadness, decreased interest in formerly pleasurable activities, and even PTSD. Researchers now have proof that persistent stress causes a subpopulation of neurons in the bow-shaped region of the brain […]

A mixture of inhalers delay the asthma progression

Analysis of a phase III trial revealed that a combination of beta2-adrenergic agonist and an inhaled corticosteroid stopped the lung disfunction and lessened severe symptoms for mild-to-moderate asthma. A combination of inhalers can help to slow the progression of asthma. The combination of albuterol and budesonide, an inhaled corticosteroid and a short-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist, slowed […]

Researchers have devised a better asthma prediction tool for kids

A simple screening tool based on cough, wheeze, and medication use flagged asthma risk in 3-year-olds with greater accuracy than standard strategies, researchers reported. The Childhood Asthma Risk Tool (CHART) outperformed specialists’ assessments and the modified Asthma Predictive Index (mAPI) for predicting asthma diagnosis by age 5 in one cohort and was validated for prediction […]

A study indicates an association between childhood asthma and hay fever

Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center found that the majority of school-aged children with asthma also reported having allergic rhinitis, popularly known as hay fever. Children with both asthma and hay fever had worse asthma outcomes, according to the study by Jessica Stern, M.D., an assistant professor in the departments of pediatrics and […]

When exposed to air pollution, women have a higher risk of damage than men

The findings were presented at the European Respiratory Society annual meeting, in Barcelona. Findings presented at medical meetings are considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal. Breathing in fumes from diesel exhaust may be more damaging to women than to men, a new Canadian study claims. “We already know that there are sex differences […]

With many different subtypes, paediatric obesity is a complicated illness

According to a study, 8 medical disorders are frequently detected in obese children in the United States. In the United States, almost one-third of kids are overweight or obese. According to a study by Elizabeth Campbell of Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and colleagues that was published in August 2022 in PLOS Digital Health, a […]

Fat cell proliferation is significantly influenced by circadian clocks

According to two studies conducted by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine, the circadian clocks that keep the body and its cells synchronised to the 24-hour day-night cycle are severely disrupted. Circadian rhythms are 24-hour cycles that are part of the body’s internal clock, running in the background to carry out essential functions and processes. One […]
