The purpose of this research was to determine which caregiver-training program (CTP) was most beneficial to caregivers. Two types of CTPs, a behavior management program and a social skills program, were implemented. The effects of the CTPs on attitude toward asking for help, attitude about using adult day care, are caregiving burden were explored. Thirty-three caregivers volunteered to participate. Of the caregivers, the majority were female spouses (n = 22), 76% were over age 60, and 68% had some college education. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of two CTPs or a control group. Pretest was completed during the first phase of the training program. Both CTPs met for six sessions. The control group received no training. The posttest was conducted 1 month after completion of the CTPs. Differences between the three groups were analyzed by using ANOVA. No differences were observed between groups. Six of the subjects chose the alternate training program when given the opportunity for further training. Caregivers who participated in both CTPs experienced a decrease in objective burden and a more positive attitude toward asking for help and using adult day care.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
