The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care recommends against using a screening tool to identify developmental delay in children aged 1 to 4 years who have no apparent signs or parental concerns, according to a new guideline.

Subjects in one of the first real-time, fully automated, Twitter-based smoking intervention programs – Tweet2Quit -- were twice as successful at kicking the habit as those using traditional methods, new research has found.

Communities of viruses can be transferred during fecal transplants, according to a study. Fortunately for patients who use this procedure, the viruses found to be transmitted in this study appear to be harmless to humans.

An optimized approach for determining prescribed medication associations within a high-volume pharmacy environment has been developed, which experts say could save money and time.

A technique has been developed to observe cell to cell interaction at the nanoscale under micro-fluid conditions. They have successfully applied the technique to the study of blood vessel inflammation, a condition that sets the stage for heart disease, the number one cause of death in the US and…

Smoking drastically alters the oral microbiome, the mix of roughly 600 bacterial species that live in people's mouths, a new study has found. The researchers say their analysis is the most comprehensive to date to examine the effects of smoking on the make-up and action of bacterial species in the…

Abnormal cells in the early embryo are not necessarily a sign that a baby will be born with a birth defect such as Down's syndrome, suggests new research carried out in mice. Scientists show that abnormal cells are eliminated and replaced by healthy cells, repairing -- and in many cases completely…

Scientists have succeeded in decoding a sugar molecule and clarifying a mechanism linked to muscular dystrophy. Their discovery has potential implications for muscular dystrophy treatment.

Take-home naloxone should be an additional standard of care for prevention of heroin overdose death, say scientists. The study estimates that naloxone successfully reversed heroin overdose in 96 to 99% of cases.

A novel investigation of how enzymatic reactions can direct the motion and organization of microcapsules may point toward a new theory of how protocells -- the earliest biological cells -- could have organized into colonies and thus, could have ultimately formed larger, differentiated structures.

A cocktail consisting of lime, stevia and beta-glucans can help make a tasty fruit beverage that is both low in sugar and high in fiber, according to a study, adding nutritional value and promote the sensory experience of the juice.

Bicycle helmets can reduce the risk of concussions by 54 percent, and drastically cut the risk of skull fractures, according to a study. To assess the impact on the brain, the researchers compared results of simulations with CT images, in which bleeding was evident in the brains of the crash…

Salmonella Typhimurium DT104 is an aggressive type of bacteria, which is particularly problematic because it has developed resistance to a number of antimicrobials and has been able to quickly spread throughout the world. Using new technology, a research team has been able to trace the bacteria…

A new clue has been found that may help fight acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the most common form of cancer of the blood and bone marrow, and an aggressive type of cancer. The findings open a new door to treating the disease more effectively.

A crucial development has been made in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). A research team has demonstrated in an animal model that, following treatment with a specially synthesized plant peptide (cyclotide), there is no further progression of the usual clinical signs of multiple sclerosis.

Researchers have published the results of a clarifying research study on the potential transmissibility of Alzheimer's disease. Although the protein associated with Alzheimer's disease, amyloid-?, might be transmissible under very unusual circumstances, this does not go along with a transmission of…

Viruses aren't always bad. In fact, scientists can harness the capabilities of some viruses for good—modifying the viruses to carry drug molecules, for example.

Increasing the total dose of radiation to patients with non-metastatic prostate cancer does not improve their long-term outcomes, according to a new study.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises consumers not to purchase or use ENVY BP for weight loss.

The annual economic cost of the nearly 16,000 premature births linked to air pollution in the United States has reached $4.33 billion, according to a new report.

Researchers have announced the development of a vaccine that protects against multiple strains of both seasonal and pandemic H1N1 influenza in mouse models.

The idea to improve humans and to optimise procreation emerged long before genetic engineering. As far back as the 18th century, concepts did exist that appear unthinkable from the modern perspective.

Documents can be skimmed 60% faster than presently and with higher recall, using a newly developed technique.

Children with Cushing syndrome may be at higher risk for suicide as well as for depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions long after their disease has been successfully treated, according to a study.

"Autistic people are cold and feel no empathy." True? It is a pervasive stereotype, but when analyzed through the lens of science, reality turns out to be quite different. According to a study, when autistic people are placed in 'moral dilemma' situations, they show an empathic response similar to…
