A survey found that fewer than half of California pharmacies provided antibiotics and opioids disposal instructions meeting U.S. FDA guidelines, and just 10 percent followed the FDA’s preferred recommendation to take back unused medications from their customers.
一道本不卡免费高清A skin-lightening cream from Mexico has been found to have had a devastating effect on the central nervous system due to its highly toxic mercury levels, according to a UCSF-led report on a patient who remains unable to care for herself months after ceasing use of the product.
A drug that once helped obese adults lose weight, but was withdrawn from the market due to heart risks, may be safe and effective for children with a life-threatening seizure disorder called Dravet syndrome.
E-cigarette use significantly increases a person’s risk of developing chronic lung diseases like asthma, bronchitis, emphysema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to new UC San Francisco research, the first longitudinal study linking e-cigarettes to respiratory illness in a sample representative of the entire U.S. adult population.
一道本不卡免费高清Children and young adults with pediatric cancer are less likely to be alive five and 10 years following diagnosis if their health insurance is public, compared to those with private insurance.
Patients with ambiguous neurological symptoms, but no diagnosis, frequently go from specialist-to-specialist over a protracted period of time. The new clinic’s goal is to fast-forward the time lapses between appointments by enabling pre-diagnostic screening and expert consultations to take place in a single visit.
一道本不卡免费高清Problem drinkers are more likely than teetotalers and moderate drinkers to take benzodiazepines. When taken by heavier drinkers, benzodiazepines may heighten the risk for overdoses and accidents as well as exacerbate psychiatric conditions.
一道本不卡免费高清After phages infect bacteria, they construct an impenetrable “safe room” inside of their host, which protects vulnerable phage DNA from antiviral enzymes. This compartment, which resembles a cell nucleus, is the most effective CRISPR shield ever discovered in viruses.
一道本不卡免费高清The California Department of Health Care Services has approved the use of a screening tool for Medi-Cal patients that helps pediatricians identify Adverse Childhood Experiences that can lead to increased health risks in patients. It is the only tool of its kind to qualify for pediatric Medi-Cal payments.
一道本不卡免费高清UCSF scientists found that an early-life window of immune tolerance available to a normally harmless bacterial species is firmly closed to another, often pathogenic species — one that is a leading cause of drug-resistant skin infections in the U.S. and occasional source of “flesh-eating” necrosis.
Neuroscientists discovered how the listening brain scans speech to break it down into syllables. The findings provide for the first time a neural basis for the fundamental atoms of language and insights into our perception of the rhythmic poetry of speech.
Using standard animal model of Down syndrome, scientists were able to correct the learning and memory deficits associated with the condition with drugs that target the body’s response to cellular stresses.
In a breakthrough with important implications for the future of immunotherapy for breast cancer, UCSF scientists have found that blocking the activity of a single enzyme can prevent a common type of breast cancer from spreading to distant organs.
With a $106 million gift from the Weill Family Foundation, UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, and the University of Washington have launched the Weill Neurohub to speed the development of new therapies for diseases and disorders that affect the brain and nervous system.
Adolescents and young adults with anorexia nervosa whose weight is in the healthy, overweight or obese ranges face similar cardiovascular and other health complications as their counterparts with low BMI.
In what is believed to be one of the first analyses of frequent emergency department users to include integrated medical, behavioral and social service data, a new UCSF study comprehensively examined these patients’ use of both medical and nonmedical services.
UC San Francisco and the Translational Research Institute for Space Health are co-sponsoring the inaugural Space Health Innovation Conference to advance research and scientific understanding of how space travel impacts health.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic is dominated by unusual gene mutations not often observed in previously studied CF populations. Majority of Dominican patients had no detectable mutations at all in the gene that is thought to drive 95 percent of CF cases.
UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland is leading a consortium of more than 60 agencies across five states to establish a West Coast Center of Excellence in Pediatric Disaster Care, aimed at improving emergency pediatric disaster-response capabilities throughout the region.
一道本不卡免费高清A workplace ban on the sale of sugar-sweetened beverages led to a 48.5 percent average reduction in their consumption and significantly less belly fat among 202 participants in a study by researchers at UCSF.
An algorithm developed by scientists at UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley did better than two out of four expert radiologists at finding tiny brain hemorrhages in head scans—an advance that one day may help doctors treat patients with TBI, strokes and aneurysms.
一道本不卡免费高清Research team has detected the immunological remnants of a common seasonal virus in spinal fluid from dozens of patients diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis (AFM). The findings provide the clearest evidence to date that AFM is caused by an enterovirus (EV) that invades and impairs the central nervous system.
The UCSF scientists who identified the two known human genes that promote “natural short sleep” have now discovered a third, and it’s also the first gene that’s ever been shown to prevent the memory deficits that normally accompany sleep deprivation.
一道本不卡免费高清The National Institutes of Health has awarded a five-year, multi-investigator research grant expected to total more than $63 million to Mayo Clinic and UC San Francisco, to advance treatments for frontotemporal lobar degeneration.
