In a hospital, what you can't see could hurt you. Healthcare facilities continue to battle drug-resistant organisms such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) that loiter on surfaces even after patient rooms have been cleaned and can cause new, sometimes-deadly infections. But a new…

A team of bioengineers is working to reduce blood clots caused by platelet activation in ventricular assist devices (VADs) implanted in advanced heart failure patients. Previously, the team re-engineered the VAD's high-speed rotors to eliminate more than 90% of platelet activation and clotting. The…

Some studies suggest that as much as 85 per cent of investment in biomedical research is wasted. Examples of waste include the non-publication of research, failure to share data and instances where the results of research are untranslatable to the benefit of patients or the efficiency of health…

More than half of workers who reported symptoms of depression did not perceive a need for treatment, according to a study that investigated barriers to mental health care experienced by workers and the resulting impact on productivity.

By drawing on seismology, researchers have just developed a noninvasive brain imaging method using MRI that provides the same information as physical palpation. They say that it may be possible to use this procedure in medical diagnosis.

Bioengineers have developed a mathematical algorithm that can "see" your intention while performing an ordinary action like reaching for a cup or driving straight up a road -- even if the action is interrupted.

Crime in Los Angeles dropped dramatically when the Los Angeles Police Department deployed officers based on crime predictions made by a mathematical model, a team of scholars and police department colleagues reports today. The mathematical model would be effective in cities worldwide, the…

The protective role played by a little-known protein complex, SMC 5/6, in cancer and aging has been revealed by new research. These results emphasize, once more, the relationship between these two pathological processes.

Most female mammals give birth and care for their offspring, while the males often breed with multiple partners and play little role in parenting once the mating is over. Yet researchers have had a hard time pinpointing where, exactly, in the brain these differences between the sexes are located…

The influence of our social networks can be a powerful motivator to encourage more physical activity, say researchers in a new report. What this new study reveals is that these same positive behavior signals are also powerful in our online networks, and can be harnessed for the social good. This…

In a study exploring racial bias and how people use their mind's-eye image of an imagined person's size to represent someone as either threatening or high-status, researchers found that people envisioned men with stereotypically black names as bigger and more violent.

Head injury patients do not benefit from a therapy that involves cooling their bodies to reduce brain swelling, research has found. Doctors say the therapy may increase patients' risk of death and disability and should not be used to treat traumatic brain injuries.

When it comes to treating blood cancers like leukemia and lymphomas, new research shows that a half-matched donor bone marrow transplant may be just as good as a full match, in the first apples to apples type comparison of its kind.

For younger women with early-stage, noninherited breast cancer on one side, a unilateral, or single, mastectomy leads to a slightly higher quality of life and lower costs over the next 20 years compared with contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM), according to new study results.

In about one in 20 cancer cases, the doctor can confirm that the patient has cancer -- but cannot find the source. These patients then face the prospect of a long wait with numerous diagnostic tests and attempts to locate the origin of the cancer before starting any treatment. Now, researchers have…

Immunobiologists have discovered Kidins220/ARMS in B cells, and demonstrate its functions. B lymphocytes, also known as B cells, are the only cells to produce antibodies, which the immune system needs to fight off foreign intruders like pathogens in order to protect the human body.

British scientists have been funded to develop a gel that will match many of the biological structures of human breast tissue, to advance cancer research and reduce animal testing.

Wastewater contains remnants of antimicrobial agents and a variety of pathogenic bacteria. It has therefore been generally assumed that wastewater treatment plants are the ideal location for pathogenic bacteria to develop new resistance genes. New research challenges the common perception that…

Progeria is a premature aging disease. Children suffering from progeria die at an average age of 14 to 15 years, often from heart attacks and strokes. So far, there is no cure for the disease, and though researchers identified the abnormal protein behind the disease – progerin – the exact way in…

Exposure to testosterone therapy over a five-year period was not associated with an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer, shows a new population-based study. Further, risk of high-grade prostate cancer did not increase according to the total number of testosterone injections.

The most effective prescription drug used to quit smoking initially helps women more than men, according to a study, which found that varenicline, marketed as Chantix, was more effective earlier in women, and equally effective in women and men after one year.
