I would like all the women folk and young girls on the other side of the screen to read this article published in the magazine Popular Science.

UTIs are one of the common problems that we all have come across. Also, we know that in recent times the antibiotic resistance of the microbial community has dreaded the medical fraternity in some or the other way.  Research has been done that claims that antibiotics have made UTIs to treat a bit difficult. Bacteria being resistant to antibiotics do not flush out completely leading to re-occurrence of the infection, that is, the recurrent UTIs (RUTI). But anti biotic use is not only the sole reason behind RUTIs. There are other reasons too that are cited in the article. Follow the link below.

Investigators at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver have cracked down the first gene mutation linked to the occurrence of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS is a neurodegenerative disorder wherein  the immune system attacks the myelin sheath of the nerves which eventually hinders the flow of information between brain and the body. The brain and the spinal cord are majorly affected.

The researchers found a missense mutation of the NR1H3 gene from the families with multiple cases of MS and concluded it to be one of the major reasons for the decreased myelin sheath production.
