New study lends more evidence that it's better to be shaped like a pear as opposed to an apple -- with weight around the abdomen.

Three studies involving 228 centers looking at the effects of the three treatments in people at intermediate risk of, but without, clinical heart disease have recently been conducted.

Researchers have developed an inexpensive, ultraportable balance board called BTrackS that provides fast, objective feedback on an athlete's balance disruption following a suspected concussion. Results from the team's first concussion detection study have revealed that it's about twice as effective…

New findings from large-scale studies of more than 3.6 million people who underwent screening for cardiovascular disease reveals that a person's age and gender affects the prevalence of certain types of peripheral vascular diseases (PVD), and that diabetes is a major risk factor for developing…

A new culture system that tests the role of chemical exposure on the developing mammary gland has found that bisphenol A (BPA) directly affects the mammary gland of mouse embryos. The study show that these changes to embryonic mammary tissue occur at a dose comparable to that of humans'…

Doctors have devised a test which could help them predict which women going through menopause will lose bone faster than average, new research reports.

Among reproductive-age women, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) as well as overweight and obesity are independently linked with asthma, new preliminary research from Australia suggests.

Scientists created a prosthetic ovary using a 3-D printer -- an implant that allowed mice that had their ovaries surgically removed to bear live young.

Many ultraviolet (UV)-filtering chemicals commonly used in sunscreens interfere with the function of human sperm cells, and some mimic the effect of the female hormone progesterone, a new study finds.

A Paleolithic-type diet may help obese postmenopausal women lose weight, improve their circulating fatty acid profile and lower their future risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease, new research reports.

Most people lose, gain and maintain their weight inconsistently, and those who lose the most weight are most likely to keep it off and keep losing, new research reports.

Having too little thyroid hormone in the blood -- even in the low-normal range -- raises the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, especially in people with prediabetes, a new study in nearly 8,500 people finds.

A large breakfast containing whey protein may help manage type 2 diabetes, new research from Israel reports.

A new study finds that the diabetes drug liraglutide leads to weight loss by acting on an area of the brain that controls attention and possibly making desirable foods less rewarding.

A new scientific statement advises clinicians to avoid using compounded hormone medications to treat menopausal symptoms, female sexual dysfunction and other hormone conditions.

Children with autism spectrum disorder are still being diagnosed later than they should be, meaning they are not getting access to specialist services early enough, warn medical experts in the UK.

A gene therapy has been developed that programs a type of immune cell called T regulatory cells (Tregs) to protect transplanted tissues from rejection by the patient's immune system, report scientists.

The use of peripheral nerve blocks (PNBs) is associated with better outcomes following hip and knee replacement, according to a study. Researchers compiled data on more than one million joint replacement patients who received a PNB in addition to general anesthesia or epidural anesthesia. Those who…

Every cell in the body has two genomes, one from the mother and one from the father. Until now, researchers have lacked the tools to examine -- in a single cell -the exact readout from each genome to make RNA. Using a new technology that allows researchers to do just that, an interdisciplinary team…

Researchers discovered which region of the brain helps us use boundaries to navigate.

Women with a preference for more intelligent partners are less likely to show interest in male-dominated fields such as math and science, according to a newly published study.

Researchers describe, for the first time, an association between a defective myogenic response of blood vessels in the retina and early, accelerated development of retinopathy in patients with type 1 diabetes. The findings may lead to the development of targeted therapies to delay or prevent the…

Researchers have new findings on fragile X, an autism-linked genetic disorder. Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is an inherited cause of intellectual disability, especially among boys. It results in a spectrum of intellectual disabilities ranging from mild to severe, as well as physical characteristics,…

The genomes of two distinct strains of the virus that causes the common lip cold sore, herpes simplex virus type 1, have been identified within an individual person -- an achievement that could be useful to forensic scientists for tracing a person's history. The research also opens the door to…

Removing a brain tumor is a delicate task, if not done properly it can have catastrophic consequences, such as brain damage, motor impairment or failure in controlling a vital organ function. In order to make this work more precise scientists have designed a "smart scalpel" that determines whether…
