Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Chronic Illness Today's Healthcare

Chronic fatigue syndrome: Number of patients is expected to double due to long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic      (via     Original source 

The number of ME/CFS patients is expected to rise drastically due to long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Scientists have now identified possible biomarkers that could improve the diagnosis and treatment of long-lasting and debilitating fatigue.

Exposure to Agent Orange damages brain tissue in ways similar to Alzheimer's disease      (via     Original source 

Agent Orange, an herbicide used during the Vietnam War, is a known toxin with wide-ranging health effects. Even though Agent Orange has not been used for decades, there is increasing interest in its effects on the brain health of aging veterans. A new study reveals the mechanisms by which Agent Orange affects the brain and how those processes can lead to neurodegenerative diseases. The research shows that exposures to Agent Orange herbicidal chemicals damage frontal lobe brain tissue of laboratory rats with molecular and biochemical abnormalities that are similar to those found in early-stage Alzheimer's disease.

Turning back the clock on photoaging skin      (via     Original source 

A new study examines dermal injections and their impact on skin aging.

Clinical trial shows rheumatoid arthritis drug could prevent disease      (via     Original source 

A drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis could also prevent the disease in individuals deemed to be at risk.

Non-invasive techniques to detect skin cancer      (via     Original source 

A study has demonstrated that the appearance of ageing skin looks noticeably different compared to younger skin, when examined under polarized laser light. The scientists believe that their new finding could pave the way for new, non-invasive light-based techniques to detect diseases, including cancer, in older individuals. This could significantly enhance early-stage treatment options for various skin conditions.

Protein modifications key influencers in neurodegenerative diseases      (via     Original source 

Exploring the post-translational modifications of a key protein in Parkinson's disease, researchers uncover potential pathways for future therapies in neurodegenerative diseases in general.

Scientists debunk role of 'junk cells' in fight against malaria      (via     Original source 

Researchers have discovered a previously unknown ability of a group of immune system cells, known as Atypical B cells (ABCs), to fight infectious diseases such as malaria. The scientists say ABCs could also be key to developing new treatments for chronic autoimmune conditions such as lupus.

Analysis of biological networks helps explain the complexity of multiple sclerosis      (via     Original source 

An international study has used a computational biology tool that, by analyzing a multitude of biological data from multiple sclerosis patients ranging from genetic information to the whole organism, reveals the relationship between elements of different biological scales and improves our knowledge and the diagnosis of the disease.

New PET tracer detects inflammatory arthritis before symptoms appear      (via     Original source 

A novel PET imaging technique can noninvasively detect active inflammation in the body before clinical symptoms arise, according to new research. Using a PET tracer that binds to proteins present on activated immune cells, the technique produces images of ongoing inflammation throughout the body, such as rheumatoid arthritis. This makes it easier for physicians to correctly diagnose and treat patients.

Heart organoids simulate pregestational diabetes-induced congenital heart disease      (via     Original source 

An advanced human heart organoid system can be used to model embryonic heart development under pregestational diabetes-like conditions, researchers report. The organoids recapitulate hallmarks of pregestational diabetes-induced congenital heart disease found in mice and humans. The findings also showed that endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and lipid imbalance are critical factors contributing to these disorders, which could be ameliorated with exposure to omega-3s.

Pharmacological inhibitor protects nerve cells in ALS disease      (via     Original source 

A new pharmacological inhibitor can intervene in a central cell death mechanism that is responsible for the death of motor neurons and hence important for the progression of the motor neuron disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Neurobiologists examined a neuroprotective molecule that belongs to a novel drug class. It is able to inhibit the interactions of certain proteins and has been successfully tested in a mouse model of ALS and in brain organoids of ALS patients.

Researchers make progress toward developing blood tests for psychiatric and neurological disorders      (via     Original source 

Researchers used genetic material from human blood and lab-grown brain cells say they have made progress in developing a blood test to identify disease-associated changes in the brain specifically linked to postpartum depression and other psychiatric and neurological disorders.

Stress influences brain and psyche via immune system      (via     Original source 

Chronic stress affects the immune system and the brain. Researchers now show that a particular enzyme found in cells of the immune system enters the brain under stress. In mice, it causes them to withdraw and avoid social contact. This newly discovered connection between body and mind in stress-related mental illnesses could lead to new treatments for depression.

The unexpected long-term consequences of female fertility      (via     Original source 

The constant remodeling of the organs of the female reproductive tract during the reproductive cycle leads to fibrosis and chronic inflammation over the years. Scientists have now uncovered these unexpected long-term consequences of female reproductive function in mice.

Discovery may enable an effective long-term lupus treatment      (via     Original source 

Researchers have worked out how to fix a defect that causes lupus, and hope their discovery will offer effective long-term treatment.

Doctors have more difficulty diagnosing disease when looking at images of darker skin      (via     Original source 

Doctors do not perform as well diagnosing skin diseases when the patient has darker skin, according to a new study. The researchers found assistance from artificial intelligence could improve doctors' accuracy, but those improvements were greater in patients with lighter skin.
