July 25, 2018 The initial findings of the ANRS CLEAC study coordinated by Pierre Frange (Hôpital Necker – AP-HP), help define the immunological and virological benefits of early antiretroviral therapy in HIV-infected children living in France. The results of this study will be presented by Florence Buseyne (Oncogenic Virus Epidemiology & Pathophysiology Team – Institut […]Continue Reading ...
July 20, 2018 Edith Cowan University (ECU) researchers have developed the world’s first blood test capable of detecting melanoma in its early stages, a breakthrough that will save thousands of lives, as well as millions of dollars for the health system. In a trial involving 105 people with melanoma and 104 healthy controls, the blood […]Continue Reading ...
July 17, 2018 Childhood adversity permanently alters the peripheral and central immune systems, increasing the sensitivity of the body’s immune response to cocaine, reports a study by researchers at the IRCCS Santa Lucia Foundation and University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy. The study, published in Biological Psychiatry, showed that exposure to psychosocial stress early in […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, July 11, 2018 — Early introduction of solids is associated with significantly longer sleep and less-frequent waking for infants, according to a study published online July 9 in JAMA Pediatrics. Michael R. Perkin, Ph.D., from the University of London, and colleagues conducted a population-based randomized trial involving 1,303 exclusively breastfed 3-month-old infants. Participants were […]Continue Reading ...
June 25, 2018 Chemical compounds produced by the bacteria in our gut could be used to spot the early stages of liver disease, according to new research. The findings, published in the journal Nature Medicine, hint at the potential for chemical by-products produced by the microbes living inside us to be used as early warning […]Continue Reading ...
June 4, 2018 A test that analyzes free-floating DNA in the blood may be able to detect early-stage lung cancer, a preliminary report from the ongoing Circulating Cell-Free Genome Atlas (CCGA) study suggests. The findings, from one of the first studies to explore whether sequencing blood-borne DNA is a feasible approach to the early cancer […]Continue Reading ...
May 25, 2018 Bottom Line: Most premature infants, who are at risk for sepsis but who may not have a culture confirmation of infection, continue to receive early antibiotics in the first few days of life, a finding that suggests neonatal antibiotic stewardship efforts are needed to help clinicians identify infants at lowest risk for […]Continue Reading ...
May 16, 2018 Researchers from the Wolfson Faculty of Chemical Engineering at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have developed an integrated system for early diagnosis of diseases using wearable monitors. Able to continuously monitor physiological indicators without disturbing the user, the system can repair itself in the event of a tear or scratch, and receives […]Continue Reading ...

July 17, 2018 White adolescent boys experiencing early puberty are at higher risk for substance use than later developing boys, a new Purdue University study finds. “The earlier your first sip of alcohol or that you try other kinds of drugs, the more likely you are to go on to develop lifelong addiction and problems […]Continue Reading ...
June 29, 2018 Researchers at Indiana University have found early evidence that tiny snippets of genetic material called microRNA may help with early detection of conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. The study, published June 18 in Nature Scientific Reports, found that changes in microRNA are detectable in mice long before they start to show symptoms […]Continue Reading ...
June 18, 2018 The results of a study presented today at the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology (EULAR 2018) report that obesity in women and current smoking in men were the strongest predictors of not achieving remission in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) within a year. Although early identification and aggressive treatment of RA improves outcomes, […]Continue Reading ...

May 15, 2018 Do metastatic cancer tumors “break bad” or are they “born bad”? This question is an essential mystery in cancer early detection and treatment. Lacking a clear answer, patients are given the same aggressive therapies when small, abnormal clusters of cells are discovered early, even though they might well be harmless. In a […]Continue Reading ...
May 10, 2018 A study conducted by researchers at The University of Kansas Cancer Center has found that early, ongoing screening of lymphatic function and immediate patient-administered therapies are highly effective in improving outcomes for women at high risk for breast cancer related lymphedema. Lymphedema is a condition that can happen when breast cancer surgery […]Continue Reading ...
