Ayurveda is one of the oldest healing systems to have evolved in India. It not only helps to cure psychological, cardiac, respiratory diseases but also deals in a number of dermatological diseases. Ayurveda today is widely used as an effective solution for hair care as it helps maintain the color, luster and strength of the hair, without the use of chemical based harmful hair care products.
In recent years, Streptococcus pneumoniae has rapidly acquired resistance to several available drugs. This has prompted scientists to look for potential drug targets in the genome of the pathogen.Over the years, various studies have indicated that a set of genome sequences called potential G Quadruplex motifs (PGQs) are present in the regulatory regions of the genome of different organisms and they form unique structures called G Quadruplexes, which influence various biological processes like DNA replication, recombination, and gene expression through the genes where they are located.
The too often long road to diagnosis presents one of the greatest challenges affecting the health, survival, well being and indeed the very identity of people affected by a rare disease and their families, Yann Le Cam, CEO of Eurordis Rare Diseases Europe and Global Commission co chair, said in a statement. This report identifies concrete policy and technical actions, mobilizing diverse actors to build on genetic and digital cutting edge advances. The report zeroes in on three main ideas, including empowering patients and families, equipping frontline providers and reimagining genetic consultations.
Patients receiving hormone therapy as part of their gender transition treatment have an elevated risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including heart attacks, strokes and blood clotting, researchers say. Researchers determined and compared the incidence of CVD cases in the transgender population with that reported in the general population. The study showed that transwomen individuals, assigned male sex at birth but with female gender identity, receiving hormones as part of their transition had more than twice as many strokes as women and nearly twice as many strokes as men. In addition, there were five times as many blood clotting among transwomen than women and 4.5 times more than men. Heart attacks occurred at more than twice the rate among transwomen than women. On the other hand, transmen those assigned female sex at birth but had male gender identity and received hormones had a more than three fold rise in heart attack risk compared with women, said the study, published in the journal, Circulation. "In the light of our results, we urge both physicians and transgender individuals to be aware of this increased cardiovascular risk," said Nienke Nota, researcher at the Amsterdam University Medical Center in the Netherlands. "It may be helpful to reduce the risk factors by stopping smoking, exercising, eating a healthy diet and losing weight, if needed before starting therapy, and clinicians should continue to evaluate patients on an ongoing basis thereafter," suggested Nota. For the study, the researchers included 3,875 individuals who had received hormone treatment 2,517 transgender women received estrogen, with or without androgen suppressors, and 1,358 transgender men received testosterone as part of their transition.

IBM Watson Health and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard are expanding their partnership to help clinicians better predict the possibility of serious cardiovascular diseases. By working with genomics, clinical data and AI, IBM and the Broad Institute hope this three year project will help provide doctors with tools to tap into the potential of genomics data, and better understand the intrinsic possibility an individual has for a certain disease. Equipped with this knowledge, health professionals can potentially intervene and help to reduce this risk.This initiative will incorporate population based and hospital based biobank data, genomic information, and electronic health records to build upon and expand the predictive power of polygenic scoring, otherwise known as genetic risk scoring. IBM and the Broad Institute are aiming to build algorithms that can pinpoint and learn from trends in these data points, and then indicate a potential predisposition to certain health conditions. The project will also plan to make insights and tools widely available to the research community, including methods to calculate an individual 's risk of developing common diseases based on millions of variants in the genome.
Researchers have developed a new software that could spot potentially lethal heart diseases and may lead to improvements in prevention and treatment, says a new study.The software ElectroMap which measures electrical activity in the organ, is a new open source software for processing, analysis and mapping complex cardiac data.
Khammam: The government will carry out an exercise to control non communicable diseases (NCDs) in the district. Before that a survey is being done of NCD patients.
Researchers reporting in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases say they have successfully developed a novel vaccine candidate capable of inducing protective immunity against the mosquito borne Mayaro virus. Mayaro virus (MAYV) is classified in the Semliki Forest virus antigenic complex and shares similarities with the alphavirus Chikungunya virus and the flavivirus Dengue virus.
There are very few people in the USA who on a daily basis like to do exercise and not surprisingly these are the only people who don;t and won;t have any major diseases. Recently The American Health Association said that more than 121 million people living the US have heart related diseases and the number be more than expected. The way people are living their daily life is causing them many problems than they know and that;s why now almost half of America is diagnosed with heart problems. Hypertension and blood pressure are one of the significant heart related diseases which are causing tremendous obstacles to the ordinary citizen of this country. Because recently the health organization said people living in between 20 to 60 have high blood pressure problems. High blood pressure is one of the primary reason behind most of the heart related issues.Cardiovascular disease is one of the top causes of deaths in America because reports say that more than 840000 dies every year because of it. Analysts think that the number of people dying because of the cardiovascular disease has increased by 40000 in the last two years and it 's not slowing down. Health experts said they are not shocked by that number because they think problems like diabetes, obesity is the main reason behind so many deaths of people. People need to change their lifestyle if they don 't want to get such type of disease because not following a healthy routine invites such kind of health conditions.
The study, published in the Anesthesia academic journal, shows that DNA repair gene expression is lower at baseline among night workers and further decreases after acute sleep deprivation, which supports the postulation that night workers demonstrate impaired DNA repair. Are You Infertile? The Reason Could Possibly Be Stress, Expert Speaks. The findings showed that people who are required to work overnight demonstrate 30 per cent higher DNA breaks as compared with those not required to work overnight, and this DNA damage is further increased by over 25 per cent after a night of acute sleep deprivation.
The global population faces diverse health challenges, ranging from serious virus outbreaks and drug resistant bacteria, to the increase in non communicable diseases like obesity and heart disease.While some parts of the world have limited access to vaccines, patients in other regions are reluctant to use them, partly because of the anti vaccine movement.Another area of huge concern is the toll that pollution and climate change take on health.The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified 10 of the biggest threats to world health in 2019. WHO policymakers have devised a new 5 year strategic plan to address these problems, which aims to improve the lives of up to 3 billion people worldwide.The following 10 major dangers are among the most serious health threats facing the world.
