The negative health effects of consuming large amounts of fructose could impact several generations, according to researchers. The study found that when pregnant mice only drink water sweetened with fructose, a common sweetener in foods and beverages, their offspring have several more risk factors…

A traveling spike generator appears to move across the hippocampus and change direction while generating brain waves. The generator itself, however, produces no electrical signal. The speed of the waves most closely match those found in epilepsy and in healthy sleep and theta waves.

Exposure to chemicals found in everyday products could affect the amount of fat stored in the body, according to a study. Phthalates are chemicals found in everything from plastic products to soap to nail polish--they give plastic its bendy stretch.

For years, neuroscientists have puzzled over how two abnormal proteins, called amyloid and tau, accumulate in the brain and damage it to cause Alzheimer's disease. Which one is the driving force behind dementia? The answer: both of them, according to a new study.

CRISPRainbow, a new technology using CRISPR/Cas9 allows researchers to tag and track up to seven different genomic locations in live cells. This labeling system will be an invaluable tool for studying the structure of the genome in real time.

Researchers examined whether the DiaRem score, a validated score generated from data readily available could be used to predict patients for whom bariatric surgery will result in cure of type 2 diabetes. This score can be used to predict whether bariatric surgery will lead to short-term remission…

Assessing certain weight control practices and eating behaviors after bariatric surgery can significantly influence the amount of weight loss after surgery, according to a study.

To what degree does the excess rate of death in individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD) happen because of a predisposition in the person who develops AUD compared with the direct effect of the AUD itself?

The efficacy and safety of well-managed warfarin therapy in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation has been the focus of recent study. Atrial fibrillation is a strong independent risk factor for ischemic stroke.

Researchers have developed a new method to map and track the function of brain circuits affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in boys using brain imaging. The technique will provide clinicians and therapists with a physical measure of the progress patients are making with behavioral and/or…

There is no evidence to suggest that lasers pointed at airplane cockpits damage pilots' eyesight. But obviously if directed at critical moments, the dazzle from the beam and ensuing distraction could prove disastrous for crew and passengers, say leading eye specialists.

Even as Congress grapples with the White House on how to fund an emergency response to fight Zika virus, a new report warns that overall underfunding for development of lifesaving tools against neglected global diseases is putting the United States and the world at risk, and that emergency funding…

A child's risk for obesity or malnutrition may be tied to the mother's misperception of her child's weight, new research shows. A key to understanding this may lie in how she regards her own weight status. Researchers say the situation calls for healthcare providers to broaden their health care…

Loneliness and social isolation are linked to around a 30 percent increased risk of having a stroke or developing coronary artery disease -- the two leading causes of illness and death in high income countries -- finds an analysis of the available evidence, new research shows.

Cancer cells communicate with their environment through cell molecules that pass on signals to the inside of the cell. SI-2 is a potent small-molecule inhibitor to drug the undruggable steroid receptor coactivator-3.

Specific combinations of gut bacteria produce substances that affect myelin content and cause social avoidance behaviors in mice, report scientists.

Super Herbs is voluntarily recalling all bottles of SUPER HERBS, light green and dark green capsules to the consumer level after FDA laboratory testing found SUPER HERBS to contain sibutramine, desmethylsibutramine, and/or phenolphthalein.

Researchers present data and a simple statistical network model that describe an unanticipated property of newly formed, immature neurons in the dentate gyrus. The model resolves a seeming paradox in one of the most intriguing areas of the brain, how immature granule cells in the dentate gyrus…

How a glimpse of the other side changes those who make it back.

Researchers are developing a new drug to treat life-threatening lung damage and breathing problems in people with severe infections like pneumonia, those undergoing certain cancer treatments and premature infants with underdeveloped, injury prone lungs. Scientists report that a transcription factor…

Researchers examined tumor response and overall survival following administration of the antibody pembrolizumab among patients with advanced melanoma.

A new study by a marketing professor looks at the best ways to use analogies in marketing.

The American Academy of Neurology has updated its 2008 guidelines on the use of botulinum toxin for spasticity, cervical dystonia, blepharospasm and migraine headache, based on recent research.

Sticking to a healthy diet in the years after pregnancy may reduce the risk of high blood pressure among women who had pregnancy-related (gestational) diabetes, according to a study.

Experts have debuted their latest progress in precision prevention -- an in-the-works method to predict risk of colorectal cancer that integrates genetic, lifestyle and environmental risk factors.
