Gunshot violence is the leading cause of death among 10- to 24-year-old African American males and the second leading cause of death among 10- to 24-year-olds males overall in the United States. A new study is the first to outline the details of how an individual's location and activities influence…

Religion can be a 'lynchpin' for achieving widespread global action on climate change, suggests a new article. The study found people around the world were willing to act on climate change, by both reducing their carbon footprints and supporting government action, to promote a more caring and moral…

Evidence-based data indicate that left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have saved many lives. However, starting in 2011 device failures due to clots forming inside these pumps (pump thrombosis) appeared to rise dramatically. There is some indication that these failures may now be declining, but…

Graphene oxide could be used to make super strong dental fillings that don't corrode, according to a new study. Research suggests we chew around 800 times in an average meal; that's almost a million times a year. We put our teeth under huge strain, and often require fillings to repair them.…

Detailed 'fingerprints' of a class of surface receptors that have proven highly useful for drug development have been created for the first time. These detailed 'fingerprints' show the surprising complexity of how these receptors activate their binding partners to produce a wide range of signaling…

The development of a reusable microfluidic device for sorting and manipulating cells and other micro/nano meter scale objects will make biomedical diagnosis of diseases cheaper and more convenient in regions where medical facilities are sparse or cost is prohibitive.

How fast elderly people walk may be related to the amount of amyloid they have built up in their brains, even if they don't yet have symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, according to a study.

Charisma may rely on quick thinking, according to new research. The research shows that people who were able to respond more quickly to general knowledge questions and visual tasks were perceived as more charismatic by their friends, independently of IQ and other personality traits.

Several studies have demonstrated that the primary active constituent of cannabis, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, induces transient psychosis-like effects in healthy subjects similar to those observed in schizophrenia. However, the mechanisms underlying these effects are not clear. A new study shows…

To better understand and address a number of neurological disorders, we need a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that regulate neuronal communication. A new study has revealed an important function of a class of presynaptic proteins previously implicated in neurological disorders in…

Mothers of healthy weight during their first pregnancy who gain even a moderate amount of weight (around 6 kg in a woman of average height) between their first and second pregnancies increase the risk of their baby dying in its first year of life, according to new research.

Researchers have identified an accessible, non-invasive way to identify patients at risk for progression of kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease is a condition in which damaged kidneys cannot filter blood as well as healthy kidneys. Currently, it is estimated that over 10 million individuals…

Individuals with depression are more than twice as likely to have hospitalizations that might be preventable with timely outpatient medical care, a Danish study finds. Preventable hospitalizations included exacerbations of common chronic conditions, such as diabetes and congestive heart failure,…

A potential new approach to fertility preservation for young cancer patients has been discovered, which addresses concerns about beginning cancer treatment immediately and the possibility of reintroducing cancer cells during the fertility preservation process.

Cancer cells that lie 'snoozing' in the skeleton can be awakened by changes in the bone that surrounds them, scientists have shown. In a world first, researchers have used state-of-the-art microscopy techniques to watch cancer cells sleep within living bone over a period of months. They show that…

Over 30 face transplants have been performed to date, but little is known about the long-term outcomes of recipients. A new study reveals that faces, when transplanted, change their appearance based on the bone structure of the recipient, and they seem to age at an accelerated rate.
