In the hours and days after a traumatic brain injury, inflammation inside the brain can accelerate to the point that more damage occurs, says a scientist working to better understand whether interventions like cannabinoids can improve patient...
Dr. Guangyu Wu is dissecting the molecular homing that enables a nascent protein to ultimately find its way to the surface of a cell as a mature receptor type that helps us taste, smell and even regulate our mood and immunity.
Painless magnetic stimulation of nerves that regulate muscles in the anus and rectum appears to improve their function and dramatically reduce episodes of fecal incontinence, a debilitating problem affecting about 10% of the population...
In the face of a multipronged front to drive blood pressure up, including a high-salt diet, females are better able to keep their pressure down by increasing levels of a T cell that selectively dials back inflammation, scientists say.
Traditional stroke treatments like clot-dissolving tPA and surgical removal of big clots in the brain are good choices as well when the stroke results from SARS-CoV-2 infection, investigators report.
Investigators at the Medical College of Georgia and Augusta University Health System are exploring the potential of magnetic stimulation to help assess its efficacy and safety.
A stroke appears to create a sticky situation inside the blood vessels of the brain that can worsen damage days, even months later, scientists report.
Like a swarm of construction workers in the aftermath of a destructive storm, cargo-filled, nanometer-sized spheres arrive on the scene following an acute kidney injury.
MCG scientists hope non-invasive and better tests that measure a gene variant commonly found in bladder cancer could help improve patient outcomes.
For the first time, scientists have described the body’s natural mechanism for temporarily protecting the powerhouses of kidney cells when injury or disease means they aren’t getting enough blood or oxygen.
Lipid that aids normal skin turnover may help psoriasis.
