New guidelines proposed for prosthetic leg technology in international sporting events to prevent competitive advantage.

People who live where there are high levels of air pollution have an increased risk of dying prematurely. Air pollution levels in Gothenburg have, however, decreased by half in the past few decades.

Nine out of 10 preschool children with autism still have major difficulties within the autism field at school age, despite having received early intervention. A majority of the parents stated that the children do not receive sufficient support at school. New research has explored these issues in a…

Rare genetic changes strongly increase the likelihood that a child will have higher bone density, but only in girls, pediatric researchers have found. Because childhood and adolescence are critical periods for bone formation, these gene variants play an important role in increasing bone strength…

So-called millennials consider their generation the most narcissistic ever. Older generations agree—but think the narcissism goes even beyond what millennials admit.

New research has highlighted the potential for the emergence of a new form of Ebola virus. A team examined the differences between Ebolaviruses that cause severe disease in humans and the Reston virus that does not.

Researchers have developed and validated a novel computational modelling method for the assessment of the patient-specific progression of osteoarthritis in the knee joint by using MRI data.

Leading scientists have identified an important gene that is associated with cleft lip and palate. Experts say the discovery is a step closer to understanding how this birth defect arises, and will help in the development of medical approaches to prevent the disfiguring condition.

Despite the rates of hospital deaths in England declining, nearly two-thirds of people aged 85 and over, and more than half of people aged 95 and over still die in hospital, new research has found.

Fifty years of drug policies aimed at restricting and criminalizing drug use and minor possession have had serious detrimental effects on the health, well-being and human rights of drug users and the wider public, according to a major new report.

If a patient is ill and takes drugs for that illness, these drugs often lead to further illnesses and complications. This affects millions of people throughout the world. An international research team is studying how to prevent this problem.

NOW Health Group, Inc. recalls products due to mislabeling.

Two new gene modification methods have been developed: lsODN (long single-stranded oligodeoxynucleotide) and 2H2OP (two-hit two-oligo with plasmid). These methods use CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) -Cas systems and ssODN (single-stranded oligodeoxynucleotide).

The conflict between science and religion may have its origins in the structure of our brains. To believe in a supernatural god or universal spirit, people appear to suppress the brain network used for analytical thinking and engage the empathetic network. When thinking analytically about the…

A common genetic defect in beta cells may underlie both known forms of diabetes, new research has found. Thanks to our genetic make-up, some of us have beta cells that are tough and robust, while others have beta cells that are fragile and can't handle stress. It is these people who develop…

Refugees traveling across countries in Europe must have better access to tuberculosis (TB) diagnostics and treatments in order to prevent a rise in new cases of the disease, according to experts.

Researchers have validated their Sterile Box, a mobile, solar-powered facility to sterilize surgical instruments in low-resource settings.

Only a fraction of those infected with the bacterium that causes TB ever develops symptomatic illness. Now, an international team of researchers has identified biological markers in the blood of latently infected people that may lead doctors to a way to predict who is at high risk of developing…

New research shows patients with a history of chest discomfort due to coronary artery disease -- a build up of plaque in the heart's arteries -- who are subsequently diagnosed with depression are much more likely to suffer a heart attack or die compared with those who are not depressed.

Female cardiologists are less likely than their male counterparts to get married and have children and more likely to face challenges related to child care, family leave policies and professional discrimination, according to a new study.

Chest pain and shortness of breath are the most common symptoms reported by both women and men with suspected heart disease, a finding that is in contrast to prior data.

Research shows why a team needs a range of talent levels to be most successful.

In a proof-of-concept study, researchers show that genetically engineered green bottle fly larvae can produce and secrete a human growth factor -- a molecule that helps promote cell growth and wound healing.

Whether the call to action is to support an important cause, save a life, or offer monetary support, new research shows it's the personal connection of giving that makes the giver feel more generous. This giving of oneself, from a signature to blood, increases feelings of generosity and in turn,…

Adding a digital health tool to traditional cardiac rehabilitation appears to help people recovering from a heart attack lose significantly more weight in a relatively short period of time, according to new research.
