Everyone has suffered from it. It's ranged from mild to severe. It's a condition that's most-often described in a whisper. Diarrhea. Severe cases of diarrhea, however, are no joking matter. New research may offer patients suffering from acute cases new treatments that focus on intestinal microbial…

Wild-caught chimpanzees, who were orphaned and imported from Africa in their early infancy, exhibit an impaired social behavior also as adults. So far, long-term effects of early traumatic experiences on social behavior were known only for humans and socially isolated chimpanzees.

There is an urgent need to do more to recognize prenatal alcohol exposure at an early stage and to integrate better pathways for diagnosis, assessment and support. The importance of raising awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders is the focus of new research, as there are unclear protocols…

A new bat SARS-like virus has been discovered that can jump directly from its bat hosts to humans without mutation. However, researchers point out that if the SARS-like virus did jump, it is still unclear whether it could spread from human to human.

Scientists have provided proof that people infected by dengue virus but showing no clinical symptoms can actually infect mosquitoes that bite them. It appears that these asymptomatic people -- who, together with mildly symptomatic patients, represent three-quarters of all dengue infections -- could…

A condition known as 'post-hospital syndrome' (PHS) is a significant risk factor for patients who undergo elective outpatient surgery, a new study has found. PHS is defined as having been hospitalized during the previous 90 days. This first-of-its-kind study found that among patients with PHS, 7.6…

For the first time, researchers have discovered how electrical stimulation works for the treatment of bacterial infections, paving the way for a viable alternative to medicinal antibiotics. The researchers passed an electric current over a film of bacteria and in 24 hours killed almost all of a…

Human factors/ergonomics researchers examined the relationship between U.S. voting system usability and the polling station environment because these systems are so diverse and little is understood about the impact of one on the other. The study reveals that if environmental features and system…

An team of researchers developed a method that identifies up to twice as many proteins and peptides in mass spectrometry data than conventional approaches. The method can be applied to a range of fields, including clinical settings and fundamental biology research for cancer and other diseases. The…

New research findings show link a between colorectal cancer and melanoma drug treatment known as NT157. ancer is a highly complex disease in which the tumor recruits its surrounding tissue, as well as the immune system to support and promote its own growth. This realization explains why tumor…

Due to their rapid metastatic spread, pancreatic tumors are among the most aggressive types of cancer. Only three to five percent of patients have a survival rate of five years. A team of researchers has now established the basis for new therapeutic approaches. They report that in various…

A new study shows that a new test for prostate cancer is better at detecting aggressive cancer than PSA. The new test, which has undergone trial in 58,818 men, discovers aggressive cancer earlier and reduces the number of false positive tests and unnecessary biopsies.

Biologists currently culture and analyze stem cells as free-floating clusters, which contain an unknown mixture of stem cells and different populations of progenitor cells. Cells in the interior of the cluster often go unnoticed if they start differentiating prematurely, losing their "stemness."…
