Restoring blood flow may be best option to save your life and limb

(American Heart Association) Amputation for severe blockages in the lower limbs has a lower survival rate than other treatment options that restore blood flow. Treatment options to restore blood flow to the lower limbs are less expensive than amputation.

Model way to protect trees

(Rothamsted Research) New research unravels the dynamics of tree production, economics and variability in demand to show how to reduce the risks of importing such damaging forest pests and diseases as oak processionary moth and ash dieback.

Eating breakfast burns more carbs during exercise and accelerates metabolism for next meal

(University of Bath) New research published in the American Journal of Physiology suggests that eating breakfast could 'prime' the body to burn carbohydrates during exercise and more rapidly metabolise foods after working out.

Baycrest co-created Virtual Brain joins flagship neuroscience initiative in Europe

(Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care) The Virtual Brain (TVB), an international brain-mapping platform co-developed by Baycrest researchers, has become part of one of the largest European research enterprises to advance neuroscience, medicine and computing. Through TVB's international partners at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Berlin Institute of Health, the platform will be integ...

Common Wifi can detect weapons, bombs and chemicals in bags

(Rutgers University) Ordinary WiFi can easily detect weapons, bombs and explosive chemicals in bags at museums, stadiums, theme parks, schools and other public venues, according to a Rutgers University-New Brunswick-led study. The researchers' suspicious object detection system is easy to set up, reduces security screening costs and avoids invading privacy such as when screeners open and inspect b...

How ugly marital spats might open the door to disease

(Ohio State University) Married people who fight nastily are more likely to suffer from leaky guts -- a problem that unleashes bacteria into the blood and can drive up disease-causing inflammation, new research suggests.

When mixing granular matter, order among disorder

(Northwestern University) Researchers find mixed and non-mixed regions among tumbled granular particles, providing a new understanding of how sand, concrete, and paint mix.

Media registration: Cancer Immunotherapy Conference in New York

(American Association for Cancer Research) The Cancer Research Institute (CRI), the Association for Cancer Immunotherapy (CIMT), the European Academy of Tumor Immunology (EATI), and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) will sponsor the fourth International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City, Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 2018.

Scientists get new tool to track new pathogen killing frogs

(University of Central Florida) An undergraduate researcher has developed a method to screen frogs for an infectious disease that has been linked to mass die-offs of frogs around the world. Thanks to her method, scientists will be able to track the disease and try to figure out why it is triggering the deaths.

Snake fungal disease alters skin microbiome in eastern Massasaugas

(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) In the first study of its kind, researchers characterized the skin microbiome of a population of free-ranging snakes to begin to understand how the animals' environmental microbial community may promote disease resistance as well as how it may be disrupted by infection.

Lipid droplets play crucial roles beyond fat storage

(University of Rochester) Lipid droplets were long thought of merely as formless blobs of fat. But a study by Michael Welte of the University of Rochester, and his colleagues, describes how lipid droplets regulate certain proteins involved in gene expression. The research has implications for understanding what helps embryos survive and how we look at lipid-related diseases like obesity.

Scientists pinpoint brain networks responsible for naming objects

(University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston) Scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) have identified the brain networks that allow you to think of an object name and then verbalize that thought. The study appeared in the July issue of BRAIN. It represents a significant advance in the understanding of how the brain connects meaning to words and wi...

Research brief: UMN researchers use green gold to rapidly detect and identify harmful bacteria

(University of Minnesota) Researchers from the University of Minnesota (UMN) have developed a method to screen and identify harmful or antibiotic-resistant bacteria within one hour using a portable luminometer.

Societies recommend policies to retain, increase ranks of ID physician scientists

(Infectious Diseases Society of America) Improved compensation, expanded mentorship and training opportunities, and concrete measures to improve workforce diversity are all needed to address attrition from the ranks of physician scientists specializing in infectious diseases, and to ensure that the next generation of that work force is sufficient to bring quests for new life-saving treatments and ...

Doctors may be able to enlist a mysterious enzyme to stop internal bleeding

(Scripps Research Institute) An enzyme can boost platelet production may work as a future therapeutic.

Healthy fat cells uncouple obesity from diabetes

(Baylor College of Medicine) Researchers have identified possible ways to uncouple obesity from co-morbidities such as heart disease and insulin resistance.

SMURF1 provides targeted approach to preventing cocaine addiction relapse

(University at Buffalo) A class of proteins that has generated significant interest for its potential to treat diseases, has for the first time, been shown to be effective in reducing relapse, or drug-seeking behaviors, in a preclinical study.

Immune cells in the brain have surprising influence on sexual behavior

(Ohio State University) Immune cells usually ignored by neuroscientists appear to play an important role in determining whether an animal's sexual behavior will be more typical of a male or female.

Light-engineered bacterial shapes could hold key to future labs-on-a-chip

(eLife ) Scientists have used light patterns to control the swimming speed of bacteria and direct them to form different shapes.

Substances associated with bee ferocity are discovered

(Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) Chemical compounds identified by Brazilian researchers may explain why less aggressive bees become ferocious. Study is published in Journal of Proteome Research.

Byproducts of 'junk DNA' implicated in cancer spread

(University of California - San Diego) UC San Diego biologists and their colleagues have revealed that enhancer RNAs play a significant role in cancer dissemination. The researchers found that eRNAs have a direct role in the activation of genes that are important for tumor development. This role is facilitated by the ability of eRNAs to directly interact with BRD4, a protein known as a cancer diss...

NSF awards grant to Portland State for state-of-the-art instrument

(Portland State University) Portland State University investigators from the Departments of Chemistry and Biology have received a $350,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for a state-of-the-art liquid chromatography coupled mass spectrometer.

Workplace bias differs for single versus married parents, UA research finds

(University of Arizona) Single moms aren't penalized at work in the same way married mothers are, new University of Arizona research suggests. At the same time, single dads don't benefit in the workplace the way that married fathers do.
