They may have made America their new home, but immigrants whose children have special medical needs appear to be having trouble finding a true 'medical home' for their child, a new study finds.

Among older men with heart attack, heart failure or pneumonia, hospitalization at Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals, compared with hospitalization at non-VA hospitals, was associated with lower 30-day all-cause mortality rates for heart attack and heart failure, and higher 30-day all-cause…

In contrast to enduring stories about extraordinarily high rates of alcohol misuse among Native Americans, researchers have found that Native Americans' binge and heavy drinking rates actually match those of whites. The groups differed regarding abstinence: Native Americans were more likely to…

A new way of mapping the collection of RNA read-outs that are expressed by a cell's active genes has been devised to shed additional light on the role of RNAs in cells. These 'dark' variations in RNA likely have roles in gene regulation across tissues, development, and in human diseases. The team…

Scientists have for the first time been able to identify the origins of some severe disease-causing mutations within the testicles of healthy men. This discovery will help our understanding of how certain serious genetic disorders can occur in the offspring of healthy parents, who do not themselves…

Researchers have successfully identified how certain genes can contribute towards a person's susceptibility to stress fracture injuries. This research provides a platform for further research into providing a personalized health approach to this common sports injury.

In injured mouse intestines, specific types of bacteria step forward to promote healing, scientists have found. Potentially, some of these microbes could be exploited as treatments for conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, they say.

Health plan members who accessed their health information online and received timely alerts about potential gaps in care were more likely to receive preventive tests and screenings than those who did not use the service, a large study has demonstrated.

Researchers have determined how a protein that helps cells fight viruses can also cause genetic mutations that lead to cancer. The research shows how the expression of a protein causes mutations to accumulate in actively replicating DNA. The work is complemented by studies from other researchers…

Minimal metabolic side effects have been documented after continuous, long-term treatment with encapsulated rapamycin in a marmoset (monkey) model. Results lead to new research grant to study efficacy.

Head and neck cancers that test positive for the herpes papilloma virus (HPV) are known to respond more favorably to radiation therapy than those that test HPV-negative, but an explanation for these differences has remained elusive.

Most clinical studies have shown that renal denervation—a procedure that disrupts the nerves in the kidneys and prevents them from relaying signals—can treat drug-resistant hypertension, although a number have shown the procedure to be ineffective. A new study supports that renal denervation can…

Children play an important role in ensuring that they are cared for by adults by using physical and cognitive cues. But what's more important in how they influence adults and elicit their nurturing spirit? Is it their physical features or what they say?

Barley can rapidly improve people's health by reducing blood sugar levels and the risk for diabetes, a recent study shows. The secret lies in the special mixture of dietary fibers found in barley, which can also help reduce people's appetite and risk for cardiovascular disease.

Scientists have sequenced the genome of the tick that transmits Lyme disease, the most common vector-borne illness in North America.

Proposals to restrict access to ketamine by making it a "Schedule I" drug would have a major impact on the availability of anesthesia and surgery in low- to middle-income countries (LMICs)—where ketamine is often the only general anesthetic drug available, according to experts.

Reducing the number of men who go to prison could help curb the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections in a community. A new computer model suggests that reducing incarceration in a community may also reduce the number of sexual partners men and women have, therefore reducing the…

Babies born to mothers exposed to air pollution from traffic during pregnancy have an increased risk of developing asthma before the age of six.

Meaningful and Internet-based activities promote experiences of participation in society and are important for healthy aging. In a new dissertation, occupational therapists are shown to promote participation, reduce experiences of loneliness and strengthen seniors' social network using an…

Aneuploid cells—that is to say those with an abnormal number of chromosomes—are found in most human tumors. A study on the fly Drosophila reveals how surviving aneuploid cells favour tumor development.

Our favorite foods could be made healthier thanks to a new technique which has identified harmful bacterial molecules in certain processed foods such as burgers and ready meals. The study identifies a particular kind of contaminating molecule known as 'pathogen-associated molecular patterns'…

A simple change in diet could boost vitamin D levels for millions of Americans suffering from Type 2 diabetes, according to new research.

Researchers have sequenced the genetic blueprint of one of the most prolific pathogen-transmitting agents on the planet -- the Lyme-disease-spreading tick (Ixodes scapularis) that bites humans. The findings could lead to advances in not only disrupting the tick's capacity to spread diseases but…
