More than 1 in 20 (nearly 3.3 million) children between the ages of 3 and 17 have a dizziness or balance problem, according to an analysis of the first large-scale, nationally representative survey of these problems in US children. Researchers found that prevalence increases with age, and girls…

RNA sequencing is uncovering emerging diseases in wildlife that other diagnostic tests cannot detect. Researchers used a technique called transcriptome sequencing to screen for blood-borne diseases in Madagascar's lemurs, distant primate cousins to humans. The animals were found to be carrying…

A group of scientists has created a neural network based on polymeric memristors -- devices that can potentially be used to build fundamentally new computers. These developments will primarily help in creating technologies for machine vision, hearing, and other machine sensory systems, and also for…

A new prognostic biomarker has been identified by researchers: the neuropeptide pro-NPY, which may help determine the risk of dying from prostate cancer. This particular type of protein is very specific to prostate cancer cells and could help identify whether newly diagnosed patients require…

Neuroscientists have investigated the effects of stress on the perception of scenes and faces. In a behavioral study, they compared the results of stressed participants with those of an unstressed control group. They were able to show that stress inhibits the perception of complex spatial…

It is the disappearance of a glycolipid from the bacterial cell envelope during evolution that may have considerably increased the virulence of tuberculosis bacilli in humans. Scientists have shown that this disappearance modified the surface properties of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, favoring its…

The safety of propranolol therapy in treating infantile hemangioma, a vascular tumor characterized by rapid growth during the first weeks of life, has been the focus of recent study. Severe forms require systemic therapy. Propranolol, a beta blocker, induces regression, but safety data have been…

Diabetic neuropathy is the leading cause of amputation due to foot ulcers, costing the U.S. alone more than $10 billion annually. Now, students have developed SenseGO, a machine-washable sock containing dozens of micro-fabricated pressure sensors. Changes in pressure are registered as electrical…

Two randomized trials examine if vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy would reduce the risk of asthma or persistent wheezing in offspring. Asthma often begins in early childhood and is the most common chronic childhood disorder. The incidence has increased during the last half-century in…

The US Preventive Services Task Force is recommending screening for depression in the general adult population, including pregnant and postpartum women, and that screening should be implemented with adequate systems in place to ensure accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and appropriate…

The brains of children who are obese function differently from those of children of healthy weight, and exhibit an "imbalance" between food-seeking and food-avoiding behaviors, researchers have found. Because of this, mindfulness, a practice used as a therapeutic technique to focus awareness,…

A study sheds new light on multiple sclerosis, specifically damage in the brain caused by the disease that may explain the slow and continuous cognitive decline that many patients experience. The findings show that the brain's immune system is responsible for disrupting communication between nerve…

A new class of small-molecule compounds has been discovered that researchers say are good candidates for development of novel targeted therapies in the treatment of leukemia and lymphoma. This new class of compounds drives cancer cells to suicide, the researchers report.

Documenting that it's never too late to quit smoking, a large study of breast cancer survivors has found that those who quit smoking after their diagnosis had a 33 percent lower risk of death as a result of breast cancer than those who continued to smoke.

Oral immunotherapy for peanut allergy induces early, distinct changes in immune T-cell populations that potentially may help researchers determine which people will respond well to the therapy and which immune mechanisms are involved in the response, a new study suggests.

Researchers have re-engineered a fluorescent probe into a powerful optogenetic photosensitizer that can be used to manipulate cells. The technology could help researchers better understand the role certain cells and proteins play in everyday function and disease, and could possibly be used as a…

Scientists have shown that complex human brain activity is governed by the same simple universal rule of nature that can explain other phenomena such as the beautiful sound of a finely crafted violin or the spots on a leopard. They have identified a link between the distinctive patterns of brain…

Researchers have located an important region for the visual processing of numbers in the human brain and showed that it is active in both hemispheres. The scientists published high resolution magnetic resonance recordings of this region.

Osteoporosis may have its origins in early life, but the consequences are not apparent until late adult life, report researchers. Osteoporosis is primarily characterized by a depletion of bone mineral mass, but when combined with alterations in bone architecture results in greater bone fragility…
