(American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev) After studying more than 43,000 deliveries at Soroka over 24 years (1991-2015), researchers found that 17.5 percent of mothers who had an episiotomy during their first delivery required repeat procedures, while only 3.1 percent of those who did not have an episiotomy the first time required one.
(University of California - Riverside) Glial cells surround neurons and provide support -- not unlike hospital staff and nurses supporting doctors to keep operations running smoothly. These often-overlooked cells, which include oligodendrocytes and astrocytes, are the most abundant cell types in the central nervous system. But these cells do more than support neurons. They also actively influence ...
(Indiana University) Researcher-entrepreneurs Terry Loghmani, Sohel Anwar and Stanley Chien of IUPUI have developed an instrument system called Quantifiable Soft Tissue Manipulation. QSTM integrates an accelerometer, force sensors, a gyroscope and software to compute the force and motion parameters during manual therapy to treat soft-tissue injuries. The information can be displayed on a laptop co...
(Princeton University) In 2013 and 2015, devastating outbreaks of ZIKA captured world attention. The virus is often transmitted from wild animals -- probably non-human primates -- via mosquitos to humans. This is the first comprehensive study to investigate which mammal species may host the ZIKA virus (ZIKV). 'We systematically tested the ability of ZIKV to infect cells from humans, great apes, N...
(University of Basel) Researchers at the University of Basel's Biozentrum have developed a method for tracing the movement of proteins within the cell. They tagged proteins with tiny nanosensors, so-called nanobodies, which enable the scientists to live track and trace the proteins' pathway through the cell. The method described in the current issue of PNAS is suitable for a wide range of research...
(University of California - Santa Barbara) Oceanographic campaign plunges into 'twilight zone' to investigate how the ocean's food web sequesters carbon
(University of Nebraska-Lincoln) Researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have devised a new LiDAR-based approach for automatically and efficiently gathering data about a plant's phenotype: the physical traits that emerge from its genetic code. The approach could allow researchers to better compare crops that have been bred or genetically engineered for specific traits - ideally those t...
(DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) Scientists have captured the most information yet about proteins within a single human cell, giving scientists one of their clearest looks yet at the molecular happenings inside a human cell. The team detected on average more than 650 proteins in each cell -- many times more than conventional techniques capture from single cells.
(Duke University) Local conservation actions can significantly boost coral's resilience to, and recovery from, climate-induced thermal bleaching by reducing other energy-sapping stresses the coral faces, a Duke-led study finds. Scientists found they could reduce the extent of bleaching by half if they removed or reduced populations of coral-eating snails from affected reefs. The coral's recovery f...
(Drexel University) More than 100 experts will convene to discuss the emerging field of research, which aims to design systems for safer, more efficient operations and to advance the understanding of the relationship between the brain and everyday human tasks.
(Stellenbosch University) People whose knees have been affected by osteoarthritis, also known as the 'wear and tear' arthritis, often have to get knee implants to repair the damage. But if a knee implant does not fit the specific individual, it could lead to soft tissue damage, collapsing of the underlying bone, loosening of the implant and an increased likelihood of joint pain after an operation....
(Abzed) Below is a summary of the new and recent research discussed at this conference.
(University of Melbourne) The size of farms in China is a key contributor to the overuse of agricultural chemicals, and as a result they may be too small to be environmentally sustainable, a new study has found.
(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) Researchers at Los Alamos and partners in France and Germany are exploring the enhanced potential of carbon nanotubes as single-photon emitters for quantum information processing. Their analysis of progress in the field is published in this week's edition of the journal Nature Materials.
(AcuraStem, Inc.) AcuraStem, a fast-growing and innovative biotech company located in Monrovia, California, has been awarded a 3.7 million dollar Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Fast-Track grant (#R44NS105156) by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to continue research for the development of a small molecule therapeutic, 'AS2015', focused on treating patie...
(Purdue University) Communication could step beyond reading a cellular phone screen with a new technique by Purdue College of Engineering researchers to learn and read messages through a person's sense of touch.
(Arizona State University) An ASU research team focused on measuring the stiffness, bending, twisting and viscosity of individual cells -- focused on a breast cancer cell line -- using all of the most state-of-the art technology at their disposal. How both healthy and cancerous cells respond to this environment -- and whether there are key differences that can be identified for future diagnostic a...
(University of California - Riverside) UCR researchers have discovered two new Ediacaran era fossil animals. Their names honor President Barack Obama and Sir David Attenborough.
(American College of Chest Physicians) The American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) announces a new partnership with Medscape focused on supporting physicians in addressing the challenges of diagnosing and treating moderate to severe asthma.
(American College of Chest Physicians) To help enable stronger communication and understanding between the clinician and patient, the CHEST Foundation, the charitable foundation of the American College of Chest Physicians, Allergy & Asthma Network and American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) have partnered to launch a new digital, interactive Shared Decision Making Tool.
(University of Erlangen-Nuremberg) A new Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio 241 'Immune-epithelial communication in inflammatory bowel diseases' is due to commence its research at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) in July 2018. In conjunction with the Charité hospital in Berlin, doctors and biotechnologists at FAU will be conducting research in order to better unders...
(Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care) Canadian researchers are recruiting older adults across Toronto and Montreal to explore the benefits of different types of brain training and lifestyle interventions for two clinical trials.
(Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) New review in the journal Clinical Nutrition finds that plant-based diets improve cardiometabolic risk factors in those with type 2 diabetes.
(Columbia University Irving Medical Center) Researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) have developed a highly innovative computational framework that can support personalized cancer treatment by matching individual tumors with the drugs or drug combinations that are most likely to kill them.
(CytoReason) New data published in Nature Biotech, represents the largest ever analysis of immune cell signaling research, mapping more than 3,000 previously unlisted cellular interactions, and yielding the first ever immune-centric modular classification of diseases.
