Researchers Have Found Brain Cells That Die Due to Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder that causes uncontrollable or unintended movements, such as stiffness, shaking and difficulty with coordination and balance. The disorder’s symptoms worsen over time as the disease progresses, with patients finding it difficult to even talk and walk when the disease is in its advanced stages. Estimates show that almost one million individuals in America suffer from Parkinson’s disease.

Researchers Develop Models to Better Understand Brain Cancer Metastasis

When cancer cells spread to the brain, they lead to the formation of brain metastases. Metastases are the primary cause of mortality and morbidity linked to cancer. Researchers at Instituto de Medicina Molecular have developed models to study brain metastases, which may help to better understand cancer and find new treatment approaches that can be modified to fit the needs of every patient. For their study, the researchers gathered brain metastases from patients with cancer that arose from tumors located in other organs. They used these cells to generate ailment models that mimicked the illness of every patient. The scientists…

Study Finds Service Dogs Help Individuals with PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental health disorder brought on by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic or terrifying event. This condition may last a few months or even years, with triggers unearthing traumatic memories and causing intense physical and emotional reactions. To help manage the condition’s symptoms, patients are sometimes assigned a buddy dog to be their companion during their daily activities. For a long time, patients with post-traumatic stress disorder have argued that a buddy dog helped better their lives. However the lack of scientific evidence made it hard to substantiate these claims — until now. A new study…

U.S. Army Sued Over Discharging Soldiers with Substance-Abuse Issues

The U.S. Army is being sued for violating the Constitution as well as its own regulations and veterans’ rights by failing to give soldiers with drug and alcohol use disorders honorable discharges, which would have qualified them for federal benefits.

Study Finds Strong Link Between Hormone Drug, Growth of Brain Tumors

A new study has found that a drug that is commonly used to hormonally treat conditions such as prostate cancer, early puberty and excessive hair growth may be linked to a heightened risk of meningioma. The study was carried out by researchers at the University of Bristol who collaborated with researchers at the National University of Singapore and the University of Cambridge. The findings were published in “Scientific Reports.” Meningioma is a common type of brain tumor that is typically benign and slow growing.

New Study Sheds Light on Inflammation Linked to COVID-19

A new study has provided new insights into why the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is known to cause COVID-19, can sometimes fuels inflammation, which in turn causes serious illness. This research was led by scientists at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Its findings were published in the “Nature” journal. The researchers also discovered that the SARS-CoV-2 virus infects and kills specific cells in the immune system in the lungs and the blood. The elimination of these alarms is what triggers the immune system. In a news release, Professor Judith Lieberman, one of the leaders of the study, stated that…
