Blue-backed fish oil helps reduce patients’ anxiety—Japan research

TOKYO -- Blue-backed fish oil is effective at helping ease patients' anxiety with certain mental diseases and cardiac infarction, among other diseases, researchers of the National Cancer Center Japan have announced. Blue-backed fish such as sanma saury and mackerel contain rich omega-3 fatty acids. According to the research team, some effects are seen when those with such diseases take 2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day for about three months. One and a half sauries contain that amount. There are some types of omega-3 fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that decrease neutral fat in blood.

PVL Open Conference: Lady Eagles on acid test

A new-look Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles squad will get their first test before the UAAP wars when they take on seasoned club teams in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. New head coach Oliver Almadro, who replaced resigned Tai Bundit after UAAP Season 80, will get his baptism of fire handling arguably the country’s most popular college team in the tournament slated to begin on September 22. After missing out on the UAAP Finals for the first time after six straight appearances, Almadro will begin the Lady Eagles’ rebuilding process together with holdovers from last season’s team. Graduating veteran Bea de Leon and seasoned middle blocker Maddie Madayag are back to lead Ateneo. Kim Gequillana is also back after sitting out the last UAAP season due to an ACL injury. New recruits setter Jaja Maraguinot, sister of former Ateneo open spiker Jho, and Vanessa Gandler will also be put under the microscope as they try to live up to the hype and expectations of Lady Eagles fans.

Low levels of omega-3s during pregnancy linked to higher risk of preterm birth

New research has found that pregnant women who have low levels of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in their first and second trimesters may have a higher risk of early preterm birth. The study, by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, United States, and Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen, Denmark, set out to examine the relationship between the blood plasma levels of omega-3 fatty acids (which can be obtained from fish, seafood and fish oil supplements) while pregnant and the subsequent risk of early preterm birth. It has already been hypothesized that a high intake of two of these long-chain omega-3 fatty acids ---eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (EPA+DHA) -...Keep on reading: Low levels of omega-3s during pregnancy linked to higher risk of preterm birth.....»»

Scientists in Germany improve malaria drug production

BERLIN --- Scientists in Germany who developed a new way to make a key malaria drug several years ago said Wednesday they have come up with a technique to make the process even more efficient, which should increase global access and reduce the cost. The new procedure refines a method developed in 2012 at the Max Planck Institute to use the waste product from the production of artemisinin, which is extracted from a plant known as sweet wormwood, to produce the drug itself. That involved a new machine that could convert about 40 percent of the waste acid into artemisinin itself, producing more of the drug from what had in the past been discarded. The new procedure uses the plant'...Keep on reading: Scientists in Germany improve malaria drug production.....»»
