    Abstract This study uses testosterone levels in the blood, prenatal testosterone levels, and testosterone receptor levels to see if testosterone effects love style. They found that low testosterone is associated with Eros, Ludus, Pragma, and Mania love styles. Receptor levels had no correlation with love style. AimsThis study aims to see if testosterone levels have an effect on love styles. IntroductionThere are three primary love styles: Eros, Ludus, and Storge. Eros is passionate and romantic ...

    Significance    According to sexual science, homosexual men statistically have more older brothers than heterosexual men (fraternal birth order effect). The authors of this paper found interest in studying human sexual orientation because of its social controversy and the lack of a known biological reason. Researchers look to examine the relationship between a maternal immune response and a protein involved in male brain development to begin looking for an explanation for the fraternal birth ord...

    AbstractYilong et al. have developed a method to classify the variation of segments of the genome due to rearrangement of different segments. Method is based on sequencing data sourced from the Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes (PCAWG) consortium, comprising of 2,658 whole genome cancer samples across 38 tumour types. Sixteen signatures of structural variation have been identified. Deletions and translocation of genome segments occur with characteristic lengths and locations. A variety of gen...

    Abstract Recent news indicates that Dexamethasone may reduce mortality of severe COVID-19 patients only. COVID-19 infection has been shown to cause multi organ disease caused by autoimmune degradation of the lungs. This lung damage is caused by uncontrolled release of proinflammatory cytokines. In order for the body to best the infection, a coordinated attack from T and B cells is required. However, Dexamethasone is an immunosuppressant that would limit the damage from inflammation but inhibit t...

    Abstract Although there is a growing body of research that suggest sex differences in health outcomes of COVID-19, it is not understood whether immune responses to COVID-19 differ based on sex. In this study, the researchers evaluated sex differences in virus levels, SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies, cytokines, and blood phenotype in COVID-19 patients with mild to moderate disease. The researchers found that male patients had more innate immune response activation, with higher cytokine and chemoki...

    Abstract     The physiological and behavioral effect of micro/nano plastics on marine life has been documented. However, there is a severe lack of studies on the effect of micro/nano plastic on mammals. Recent studies show the toxicological effects as a result of micro/nano plastic ingestion in mammals. Future studies should address the effects of short and long term exposure of microplastic to animal models. The accumulation of micro/nano plastic occurs in mammals, but the long term consequence...

    AbstractCmr-β is a kind of CRISPR-Cas complex that recognizes RNA and executes a multicomponent immune response against genetic elements related to infection. In this study, the researchers explain how the structure of Cmr-β relates to its function, revealing how binding RNA regulates the Cmr2 subunit of the complex. Using cryoelectron microscopy (cryo-EM), the researchers were able to take pictures of the subunit’s unique structure and captured it in different stages of its immune response. Bin...

    Abstract Patients with chronic skin diseases and scarring were treated with CBD ointment to test if CBD is effective against these issues. CBD improved the condition of the skin, and can be used safely to treat those with chronic skin conditions Aims This study aims to see if CBD ointment can help safely minimize the effects of chronic skin diseases and scarring. Introduction Eczema, psoriasis, skin infections, and autoimmune disorders are common skin issues that can affect people of all ages. E...

    AbstractIn this study, the researchers wanted to understand the relationship between race, trends in the safety and quality of obstetric services, and trends in maternal and neonatal mortality. They calculated indicators of hospital quality and patient safety as well as maternal and neonatal mortality by race using data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2000 to 2009. They explored differences between black and white women for these factors, adjusted for age, comorbidities, and geographi...

    Aims This study aims to compare ECMO as treatment for COVID-19 induced ARDS versus other methods of treatment. Introduction COVID-19 can cause acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute lung failure in severe cases. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a potential for these severe patients. In a study done on MERS patients in 2012, the mortality rate and ICU stay were both smaller for patients treated with ECMO. But with COVID-19, the opposite seems to be true. Results 4 studi...
