Study debunks ‘myth’ that strenuous exercise dampens immunity

New research overturns a myth that has persisted for nearly four decades - that competing in endurance sports, like this weekend's London Marathon, suppresses the body's immune system and makes competitors more susceptible to infections.

Researchers discover blood biomarkers that may help detect, confirm mild traumatic brain injury

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, Georgetown University and the University of Rochester have found that specific small molecules in blood plasma may be useful in determining whether someone has sustained a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), commonly known as a concussion.

CPRIT awards $2 million grant to push forward breast cancer research in West Texas

A $2 million grant from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas will allow Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso to create a new lab focusing on breast cancer, pushing forward breast cancer research in West Texas.

Scientists identify gene responsible for evolution of recombination rates

Genetics is a crapshoot. During sexual reproduction, genes from both the mother and the father mix and mingle to produce a genetic combination unique to each offspring. In most cases, the chromosomes line up properly and crossover. In some unlucky cases, however, "selfish DNA" enters the mix, causing abnormal crossovers with deletions or insertions in chromosomes, which can manifest as birth defec...

Unhealthy diet damages the development of immature fat cells, study shows

24 hours. This is all it takes for a so-called precursor fat cell to have its 'epigenetic recipe' on how to correctly develop into a mature fat cell, reprogrammed.

Researchers find crucial links between dopamine and avoidance behavior

Scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have for the first time found direct causal links between the neurotransmitter dopamine and avoidance – behavior related to pain and fear.

Study findings could open new possibilities for treating cancer with adenovirus

Adenovirus is a common virus that causes infectious diseases of the respiratory tract, eyes and gastrointestinal tract in humans and animals. Researchers at Umeå University study molecular mechanisms of infection in order to understand how adenovirus causes disease.

Normal weight people with fat belly may have more chance of heart problems

Belly fat, even in people who are not otherwise overweight, is bad for the heart, according to results from the Mayo Clinic presented today at EuroPrevent 2018, a European Society of Cardiology congress.

Meditation could help reduce anxiety levels and some heart health risk factors

It sounds like a late-night commercial: In just one hour you can reduce your anxiety levels and some heart health risk factors. But a recent study with 14 participants shows preliminary data that even a single session of meditation can have cardiovascular and psychological benefits for adults with mild to moderate anxiety.

Scientists find link between soil metals and cancer mortality

Spanish epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between esophageal cancer and soils where lead is abundant, lung cancer and terrains with increased copper content, brain tumor with areas rich in arsenic, and bladder cancer with high cadmium levels.

Study shows connection between muscular strength and brain health

A study of nearly half a million people has revealed that muscular strength, measured by handgrip, is an indication of how healthy our brains are.

EPFL becomes part of Chan Zuckerberg’s project to develop Human Cell Atlas

"The automated single-cell analysis pipeline is a software tool that catalyzes interdisciplinary work as it allows non-expert labs to engage in high-level genomic research that otherwise would require significant computational expertise," explains Professor Bart Deplancke, director of a lab at EPFL's Institute of Bioengineering.

New imaging technology to effectively screen for colorectal cancer among young adults

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the country. While the rates of colorectal cancer among patients older than 50 years old has decreased in recent years due to screening, it has increased by 22 percent among those under the age of 50, which could place a burden on the health care system over the next decade.

Evolutionary history of tumor helps predict severity of prostate cancer

Findings from Canadian Prostate Cancer Genome Network (CPC-GENE) researchers and their collaborators, published today in Cell, show that the aggressiveness of an individual prostate cancer can be accurately assessed by looking at how that tumor has evolved. This information can be used to determine what type and how much treatment should be given to each patient, or if any is needed at all.

Study reveals surprising insights into RNA-binding proteins

A host of special molecules called nuclear RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), when misplaced outside the nucleus, form the harmful clumps seen in several brain disorders, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

New CRISPR tool allows DNA editing outside of the cell

Researchers have developed a cell free method of gene editing, which uses a new version of the CRISPR tool that can edit DNA outside of the cell. This technique could revolutionize cancer care.

Experimental compound reduces destructive inflammation to improve stroke outcome

An experimental compound appears to improve stroke outcome by reducing the destructive inflammation that can continue months after a stroke, scientists report.

Walking fast lowers risk of hospitalization in heart patients, shows study

Faster walking patients with heart disease are hospitalized less, according to research presented today at EuroPrevent 2018, a European Society of Cardiology Congress, and published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

BD introduces new informatics and automation solutions for clinical laboratories

BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, today introduced several new informatics and automation solutions for clinical laboratories, which may play a critical role in the fight against infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance.

Novel gold nanoparticle technology could guide cancer treatment in real-time

A new blood test using gold nanoparticles could soon give oncologists an early and more accurate prognosis of how cancer treatment is progressing and help guide the on-going therapy of patients.

DePuy Synthes announces clinical results related to use of CORAIL Hip System Femoral Stems

DePuy Synthes, part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, announced today clinical results associated with the use of its CORAIL Hip System Femoral Stems.

Consumption of protein supplements with meals may provide better weight control

A new systematic review of available evidence appearing in Nutrition Reviews, published by Oxford University Press, indicates that consuming protein supplements with meals may be more effective at promoting weight control than consuming supplements between meals in adults following an exercise regimen.

Excelitas Technologies launches new powerful LED light source for fluorescence microscopy

Excelitas Technologies Corp., a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, today introduced its X-Cite XYLIS light source for fluorescence microscopy.

New initiative launched to support goals of Human Cell Atlas

Uri Laserson, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics and Genomics Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and collaborators have been awarded one of 85 grants announced today from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative DAF (CZI), an advised fund of Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

Conrad N. Hilton Foundation awards $1.9 million grant to tackle global water and sanitation challenges

Good intentions are not the same as good results - as much as half of all water and sanitations systems in developing countries fail after five years.
