Autoantibodies in Silicosis Patients: Silica-Induced Dysregulation of Autoimmunity

By |2020-07-15T16:07:37+00:00July 15th, 2020|

Abstract Silica particles cause silicosis (SIL) and represent one of the most typical environmental and occupational substances that induce autoimmune disorders among the exposed population. Anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), anti-Sjögren’s-syndrome-related antigen A (SS-A), anti-centromere protein B (CENP)-B, and anti-scleroderma (Scl)-70 autoantibodies were examined in SIL and compared with those in healthy volunteers (HV) and patients with [...]

Prenatal regenerative fetoscopic interventions for congenital anomalies

By |2020-07-15T16:07:36+00:00July 15th, 2020|

Abstract Fetal intervention has progressed in the past two decades from experimental proof-of-concept to practice-adopted, life saving interventions in human fetuses with congenital anomalies. This progress is informed by advances in innovative research, prenatal diagnosis, and fetal surgical techniques. Invasive open hysterotomy, associated with notable maternal-fetal risks, is steadily replaced by less invasive fetoscopic alternatives. A [...]

Coronavirus and Risk Analysis

By |2020-07-15T16:07:35+00:00July 15th, 2020|

George Santayana wrote “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The coronavirus disease (COVID‐19) pandemic has revealed many failures in different countries and systems that have combined to yield lethal consequences. Such failures, as well as actions in ongoing responses, contain elements that many members of the Society for Risk Analysis [...]

Distinct type 2-high inflammation associated molecular signatures of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps with comorbid asthma

By |2020-07-15T16:07:34+00:00July 15th, 2020|

Abstract Background Patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) and comorbid asthma have more severe disease and are difficult to treat. However, the molecular endotypes associated with CRSwNP with comorbid asthma (CRSwNP + AS) are not clear. This study aimed to investigate the characteristics of type 2 inflammation and the molecular signatures associated with CRSwNP + AS.   [...]

New sensor may soon test for coronavirus and flu simultaneously

By |2020-07-15T16:07:33+00:00July 15th, 2020|

The novel coronavirus has been compared to the flu almost from the moment it emerged in late 2019. They share a variety of symptoms, and in many cases, an influenza test is part of the process for diagnosing COVID-19. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin are now developing a new sensor that can tell [...]

Israeli researchers provide evidence microdosing cannabis relieves pain

By |2020-07-15T16:07:33+00:00July 15th, 2020|

The researchers published their findings in the European Journal of Pain, providing the first scientific evidence that microdosing can be applied medical cannabis solution. Israeli pharma-tech company Syqe Medical recently conducted a clinical trial in which they found evidence that inhaling “extremely low and precise doses” of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the principal psychoactive component in cannabis [...]
