    A recent review of published research indicates that hearing their mother’s voice can benefit the health of preterm infants.The review included 15 studies with 512 infants from 2000 to 2015. Hearing the maternal voice, either recorded or live, was linked with the physiologic and behavioural stabilisation of preterm infants, with fewer cardiorespiratory events. There is insufficient evidence to evaluate long-term effects, however.“Preterm infants’ state becomes more stable when mothers talk and...

    Providing pedometers, with and without providing step targets, to individuals with rheumatoid arthritis increased activity levels and decreased fatigue in a recent study.In control patients who did not receive pedometers, average daily steps declined and there was no significant change in fatigue.The findings are important because fatigue can have a significant impact on quality of life for individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, but effective and feasible treatments are limited.“Because...

    The currently licensed seasonal trivalent influenza vaccines contain 15 micrograms of viral hemagglutinin protein per strain for adults, and up to 60 micrograms for elderly individuals; however, due to recent shortages, reducing these doses would be highly desirable. A recent study has found that significant dose sparing is possible with the use of whole virion vaccines and aluminium adjuvants, without compromising safety.Whole virion vaccines contain whole virus, not just...

    A new review of published research indicates that the oxytocin system—a key player in social reward and stress regulation—is profoundly affected by opioid use. Therefore, it may be an important target for developing medications to treat opioid addiction and to prevent relapse.“Social withdrawal is one of the key factors that can predispose people to heroin addiction but is also a consequence of drug use,” said Dr. Alexis Bailey, senior author of the British Journal of Pharmacology review. “...

    A recent study found that women with overactive bladder who received antimuscarinics were 38% more likely to be diagnosed with depressive disorder within the next 3 years than those who did not receive antimuscarinics. Although antimuscarinics can significantly depress bladder contractions and improve symptoms by blocking muscarinic receptors, studies have found that several unwanted side effects frequently occur when patients with overactive bladder receive the drugs.“This population-based...

The incidence of rectal cancer in men increased by 18% and in women by 13%. In those aged 50–79 years, there was a reduction in incidence per decade of proximal, distal, and rectal cancers in both sexes. In...
