Early intervention can help children with autism to develop their communication skills. Credit: www.shutterstock.com, CC BY-ND Research suggests children can be reliably diagnosed with autism before the age of two. It also shows that many of the behavioural symptoms of autism are present before the age of one. These behaviours include decreased interest in social […]Continue Reading ...
Each year, around the world, about 15 million babies are born prematurely, arriving three or more weeks early and facing a wide variety of health problems. In most cases, doctors don’t know why a pregnancy has ended early. But thanks to the industrious work of Stanford’s top obstetricians, neonatologists, geneticists, microbiologists, immunologists, epidemiologists, health policy […]Continue Reading ...
Young children experiencing deprivation and neglect in institutional settings have impaired memory and executive functioning at ages 8 and 16 compared with peers placed early in quality foster homes, report investigators at Boston Children’s Hospital. The study, interpreting the latest findings from the randomized controlled trial, the Bucharest Early Intervention Project (BEIP), was published today […]Continue Reading ...
Home News Professional Early Classification Predicts One-Year Trauma Outcomes FRIDAY, Jan. 4, 2019 — During early recovery, patients with orthopedic trauma can be classified into risk and protective clusters that help to predict 12-month functional and health outcomes, according to a study published online Dec. 19 in JAMA Surgery. Renan C. Castillo, Ph.D., from the […]Continue Reading ...
Nova Southeastern University (NSU) researchers recently discovered that by testing the level of NER (nucleotide excision repair) gene expression, pediatric oncologists can determine the likelihood of early relapse (less than three years) in their acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients. This is a critical finding because NER gene expression levels can now help guide doctors in […]Continue Reading ...

Women are roughly twice as likely as men to develop depression, anxiety and other stress-related problems, including difficulty with attention, and new research from Brown University neuroscientists sheds light on the biological reasons why. Studying mice whose mothers had inadequate supplies to make nests — a model for early-life stress in humans — the researchers […]Continue Reading ...
It may be tempting for parents or coaches to urge young children to specialize in one sport early on to help maximize their chance at making it to the big leagues, but that might not be the best path to success. In a study that looked at the sports histories of professional and collegiate ice […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers from The University of Western Australia have conducted a study that has found young women who start having periods early and often have a high body mass index are more prone to cardiovascular problems later in life such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. More than 800 young women from […]Continue Reading ...
New research shows that a simple non-invasive hearing test early in life could predict the diagnosis of autism. The results of this study, titled ‘Structural and Functional Aberrations of the Auditory Brainstem in Autism Spectrum Disorder’, is published in the latest issue of the The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association (JAOA). Autism could be […]Continue Reading ...
A noninvasive hearing test may assist with early detection and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders, according to research published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. The authors note a strong connection between auditory dysfunction and autism, suggesting that hearing issues identified at birth can be a clue to monitor the child for autism. […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Women who are overweight or obese have up to twice the risk of developing colorectal cancer before age 50 as women who have what is considered a normal body mass index (BMI), according to new research led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. In the United States, overall […]Continue Reading ...
New study demonstrates association between prenatal exposure to famine and early reproductive aging Previous studies have demonstrated that fetal malnutrition can lead to adult chronic disorders such as type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease. A new study out of China now suggests that it also can lead to early menopause and premature ovarian failure. […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have used organoid culture techniques to create a cellular model of the early stages of the placenta. It is hoped that this will further our understanding of the initial stages of pregnancy and the etiology of various reproductive disorders. This is a confocal image of a trophoblast organoid stained […]Continue Reading ...
