Using sex-specific scores on memory tests may change who gets diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) by 20 percent, with possibly more women and fewer men being diagnosed, according to a study published in the October 9, 2019, online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. Mild cognitive impairment, a precursor to dementia, is when […]Continue reading »
A reconfigurable “body-on-a-chip” model could transform drug development by simultaneously measuring compound efficacy and toxicity, for both target cells and other organs, such as the heart and liver. These findings, published in Science Translational Medicine, demonstrate the ability of a body-on-a-chip model to truly revolutionize biomedical research and personalized medicine through more accurate and efficient preclinical testing without the use […]Continue reading »
My cum is crystal clear and despite months of trying, my girlfriend can’t get pregnant. It has always been clear and not white. I read this could be due to low sperm count. Do I need to undergo fertility tests or is clear ejaculation normal?
Thanks for your question. Pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) that is released before a guy climaxes is often clear. However, ejaculate or semen (cum) that’s released during orgasm is typically thick, whitish, gray or slightly yellow in color, and slightly transparent (you can see through it). It also feels a bit sticky. It’s interesting though because once semen leaves a guy’s penis, it […]Continue reading »
Researchers from Queen’s University Belfast, in collaboration with the University of Bristol, are leading a cutting-edge project, named the “MONARCH” study, that could benefit eye disease patients whilst saving both time and money within the NHS. The MONARCH study aims to investigate if patients with an eye condition called wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) could test their vision at home, […]Continue reading »
New results from a long-running trial to identify which new drugs or combinations of drugs are most effective in which types of breast cancer, show that two genomic tests are bringing the era of truly personalised medicine ever nearer. Professor Laura van ‘t Veer, leader of the Breast Oncology Program at the University of California San Francisco, USA, told the […]Continue reading »
Bipolar affective disorder (BPAD) affects around 2% of the world’s population, leaving them with bouts of severe depression and episodes of what is commonly referred to as “mania”. A range of drug treatments are available, but choosing the right medication, or range of medications, can be a struggle – sometimes spanning many years. But new research aims to shorten this […]Continue reading »
