New insights on mosquitoes that spread disease

The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) is a highly invasive species and a vector of multiple pathogens including various viruses, such as chikungunya, dengue, and Zika. A new Medical and Veterinary Entomology study that evaluated the relationship between the mosquito's presence and habitat variables at a small scale provides important information for planning effective prevention and control campaigns. When investigators examined mosquito populations on Mallorca Island off the coast of Spain, they found that Ae. Albopictus presence was negatively associated with altitude, probably due to greater human presence at low altitudes near the coast. Moreover, Ae. albopictus presence was positively...

Groups say Medicare discounts threatened in opioids bill

Consumer and health care groups are scrambling to block what they say is a move by the pharmaceutical industry to commandeer must-pass opioids epidemic legislation as a vehicle for rolling back drugmaker discounts to Medicare beneficiaries with high prescription costs. Republicans said Friday nothing has been decided in behind-the-scenes discussions. But Henry Connelly, a spokesman for House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, called the effort a "Republican attempt to hijack a bipartisan effort on opioids funding to ram through a multibillion-dollar handout to Big Pharma." The House and Senate are working on major legislation to combat the opioids epidemic by focusing...

Regular bedtime improves sleep quality

Washington: Not only does a regular bedtime improve sleep quality, it is just as important for heart and metabolic health among older adults, finds a study. In a study of 1,978 older adults, researchers at Duke Health and the Duke Clinical Research Institute found people with irregular sleep patterns weighed more, had higher blood sugar, higher blood pressure, and a higher projected risk of having a heart attack or stroke within 10 years than those who slept and woke at the same times every day. Irregular sleepers were also more likely to report depression and stress than regular sleepers, both...

Why people need to be more honest with each other

Washington: Have you ever told a half-truth to avoid an awkward social situation or to keep the peace? Most people value the moral principle of honesty. At the same time, they frequently avoid being honest with people in their everyday lives. A new research from the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business explored the consequences of honesty in everyday life and determined that people can often afford to be more honest than they think. In the paper, "You Can Handle the Truth: Mispredicting the Consequences of Honest Communication," Chicago Booth Assistant Professor Emma Levine and Carnegie Mellon University's Taya...

Scientists say genomic study could help cure diabetes

Washington: Turns out, the study of all genes at the DNA, mRNA, and proteome levels, as well as the cellular or tissue level or simply the Genomic study can help cure type 2 diabetes. Most patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes are treated with a "one-size-fits-all" protocol that is not tailored to each person's physiology and may leave many cases inadequately managed. A new study by scientists at Harvard University indicated that inherited genetic changes may underlie the variability observed among patients in the clinic, with several pathophysiological processes potentially leading to high blood sugar and its resulting consequences.
