May 3, 2018 A novel PET tracer developed by Korean researchers can visualize joint inflammation and could provide early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, a common autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of joints and can lead to deformity and dysfunction. The study is reported in the featured basic science article in The Journal of Nuclear […]Continue Reading ...
April 26, 2018 Skin cancer survivors know firsthand that the disease is most treatable when detected early, so they’re more likely to be vigilant about skin exams —and new research shows that such vigilance pays off. After studying more than 900 cases of melanoma reported through the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, researchers found that men […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: King’s College London Dentists can play a key role in the detection of health conditions including anorexia nervosa, bulimia and Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD), according to research from King’s College London. The data, published in the British Dental Journal, found that many of the medical conditions that result in the erosion of tooth enamel, […]Continue Reading ...
TUESDAY, April 3, 2018 — Alcohol consumption early in pregnancy may be a risk factor for the development of gastroschisis in neonates, according to a study published recently in the Journal of Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine. Jean R. Goodman, M.D., from the Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill., and colleagues conducted a case-control study […]Continue Reading ...
MONDAY, April 2, 2018 — Women who began puberty early are more likely to be overweight, a new study reports. Specifically, the earlier they had their first period, the more apt women were to have a higher body mass index (BMI), which is an estimate of body fat based on weight and height. Researchers at […]Continue Reading ...
May 8, 2018 High levels of cytoskeleton-associated protein 4 (CKAP4) have been identified in the blood of patients with lung cancer. In a novel study in The American Journal of Pathology investigators found that CKAP4 levels were significantly higher in patients with lung cancer than in healthy individuals. They further determined that CKAP4 levels are […]Continue Reading ...
May 3, 2018 When a baby is taken from its mother for even a brief period early in life, this traumatic event significantly alters the future, adult function of the brain, according to a new animal model study from the School of Science at IUPUI. These changes in the brain are similar to disturbances in […]Continue Reading ...
April 25, 2018 Early childhood caries, a form of severe tooth decay affecting toddlers and preschoolers, can set children up for a lifetime of dental and health problems. The problem can be significant enough that surgery is the only effective way to treat it. Recently researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine […]Continue Reading ...
April 16, 2018 Early life stress, sleep disturbances and alterations in neuronal plasticity have been associated with depression, yet the relation between these factors and depression remain poorly understood. In her doctoral dissertation, M.Sc. Olena Santangeli from University of Helsinki explored the interconnection between depression and sleep disturbances, starting from early stage of development. Possible […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: University of Glasgow Chromosomal loop signatures found in blood samples obtained in early rheumatoid arthritis could identify patients that will not respond adequately to ‘anchor’ treatment drug methotrexate. New University of Glasgow research, published in the Journal of Translational Medicine, investigated whether differences in genomic architecture, as defined by a chromosome conformation signature (CCS) […]Continue Reading ...
April 5, 2018 Like childhood cancers, early life epilepsies represent many rare disorders with diverse underlying causes. Unlike childhood cancers, little has changed in the outcomes of early life epilepsies in the past few decades, despite advances in diagnostic technologies and availability of new treatments. Following recommendations in the U.S., specialty treatment for early life […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Girls who start puberty earlier are more likely to be overweight as adults, finds new research from Imperial College London. The researchers say their findings, published today in the International Journal of Obesity, strengthen existing evidence of a link between the onset of puberty and a woman’s body mass in adulthood. […]Continue Reading ...
