NovaCast is a device that prevents infections, ulcers and even amputation of limbs, is ten times lighter than the traditional material and allows a good ventilation.

The benefit of plasma genotyping to predict treatment benefit in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is confirmed in three studies.

Greek dancing improves the jumping ability of elderly patients with heart failure, according to new research.

Patients with epidermal growth factor receptor expressing advanced squamous non-small-cell lung cancer benefit most from necitumumab added to gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy, according to a subgroup analysis from the SQUIRE trial.

Using cutting-edge imaging technology, biologists have determined that uncontrolled fluctuations (known at "noise) in the concentration of the vitamin A derivative Retinoic acid (RA) can lead to disruptions in brain organization during development.

The expected odds of children having a genetic condition which causes learning difficulties and tumors have been dramatically cut, thanks to a recent genetic analysis.

Throughout our cells, materials are continuously transported via tiny packets called vesicles. This process is called intracellular trafficking and it is crucial for the normal functioning of cells. An optogenetic system inhibits intracellular membrane vesicle trafficking, scientists report.

Over the past 10 years, the volume and rate of biomedical research has increased dramatically, leading to a rapid growth in biomedical knowledge. However, this knowledge is currently fragmented across countless resources. Scientists have integrated biomedical data into Wikidata, a public, editable…

Why are black older adults at higher risk of repeat hospital admission after a heart attack? Treatment at hospitals with higher rates of missed nursing care may be a contributing factor, reports a study.

Research examining gynecologic cancers that poorly respond to therapy shows genomic profiling can help identify alternate and targeted treatments, report scientists.

Infertility is a silent problem that obese men have to face. This is a health issue that deserves attention from policymakers and the media, suggest experts in a new article.

Protective mastectomies that preserve the nipple and surrounding skin prevent breast cancer as effectively as more invasive surgeries for women with a genetic mutation called BRCA that raises their risk of developing breast cancer, a multi-institution study has found.

For those who stutter, a simple conversation can be a frustrating experience. The mechanism that underlies stammering is unclear, although a telltale genetic mutation was recently pinpointed as the culprit. How this mutation causes fits and starts in speech is unknown, but researchers from…

In this blog post, Dr. Emmeline Edwards previews the sessions that NCCIH will offer at the International Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health in May 2016.

An analysis comparing the individual differences between over 40 strains of Zika virus has identified significant changes in both amino acid and nucleotide sequences during the past half-century. The data support a strong divergence between the Asian and African lineages as well as human and…

Cardiology researchers have identified molecular ties between the growth of cancer cells and heart cells that suggest existing cancer drugs may be able to help those with enlarged heart cells -- a condition that can lead to heart attacks and stroke.

Mothers' milk guides the development of neonates' gut microbiota, nourishing a very specific bacterial population that protects the child. Now a team of researchers has identified the compound in the milk that supplies this nourishment, and has shown that it can be obtained from cow's milk, which…

Thousands are bitten by rattlers and other venomous snakes each year, and a new treatment may serve as a "bridge" to buy time until medical care is available.

There may be a new way to change the damaging course of Huntington disease, researchers report. They have shown that reducing the aberrant accumulation of a particular form of the mutant Huntingtin protein corresponds to improvement in symptoms and neuroinflammation in HD mice.

There may be long-term benefits to simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation versus kidney transplantation alone, new research suggests.

In the area of nano photonics, scientists for the first time succeeded in integrating a laser with an organic gain medium on a silicon photonic chip. This approach is of enormous potential for low-cost biosensors that might be used for near-patient diagnosis once and without any sterilization…

A small, implantable device that delivers chemotherapy drugs directly to pancreatic tumors has been developed by scientists. This thin, flexible film could also be adapted to treat other hard-to-reach tumors, according to the researchers.

Researchers have developed the treatment program called Impulsive Lifestyle Counselling, which helps substance abusers who also suffer from impulsive and criminal behavior.

Standard treatment for prostate cancer can include chemotherapy that targets receptors on cancer cells. However, drug-resistant cancer cells can emerge during chemotherapy, limiting its effectiveness as a cancer-fighting agent. Researchers have proven that a compound initially developed as a…

The ZIKA virus can be transmitted sexually, a new study has confirmed. The ZIKA virus, a member of the Flavivirus family, is almost exclusively transmitted to humans by Aedes mosquitoes. Although Zika infection usually causes mild symptoms, it can be responsible for severe neurological…
