Aesthetic treatments based on botulin toxin affect the perception of emotions, new research shows. The consequence of having Botox injected, scientists explain, depends on a temporary block of proprioceptive feedback, a process that helps us understand other people's emotions by reproducing them on…

Women with early-stage breast cancer for whom chemotherapy was indicated and who used dietary supplements and multiple types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) were less likely to start chemotherapy than nonusers of alternative therapies, according to new research. This is one of the…

Inhibiting autophagy, the process cells use to degrade large intra-cellular cargo, effectively blocks tumor cell migration and breast cancer metastasis in tumor models. Metastasis is responsible for 90 percent of cancer deaths. There are approved drugs that can disrupt autophagy.

Mitochondria are the energy-generating batteries of cells, but they also perform other critical functions, including protecting cells against calcium overload, a significant cause of cell death in certain cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Underlying this safety mechanism is a protein…

A sleeping pancreas releases less insulin, but how much insulin drops each night may differ from person to person, suggests a new study. Up to 30 percent of the population may be predisposed to have a pancreas that's more sensitive to the insulin-inhibiting effects of melatonin. People with this…

Depression is a disorder that involves changes in coordinated networks of hundreds of genes across key brain circuits, according to a study. Researchers show through their work how tweaking gene networks can affect susceptibility to depression.

Gene expression is the process by which genetic information is used to produce proteins, essential for cells to function properly. It takes place in two steps (first the transcription, then the translation), considered to be two independent processes until now. Today, microbiologists provide…

Investigators have uncovered a "weekend effect" contributing to the worsening availability of donor kidneys in the United States. They found that kidneys that would normally be made available for transplantation were less likely to be procured from donors over the weekend (89.5% on the weekend vs.…

A research team has developed a method, called SLENDR, that allows precise modification of neuronal DNA in living samples. Using their new technique, the research team was able to reliably label two different proteins with distinct colors at the same time in the same cell. The researchers used a…

Taking calcium and vitamin D can help prevent broken bones in older women. However, this benefit may be cancelled out by an increased risk of heart attack and stroke, say researchers.

Abortion rates have declined significantly over the last 25 years in developed countries and are at a historic low. But in developing countries, where many abortions are unsafe, rates have remained level, highlighting the urgent need for better access to modern contraception (eg, hormonal pill,…

Two linked papers shed new light on the relation of alcohol and diet with breast cancer and heart disease. The first study reports that high fruit consumption during adolescence may be associated with lower breast cancer risk, while the second study finds that increasing alcohol intake in later…

Crowdsourcing has brought us Wikipedia and ways to understand how HIV proteins fold. However, most tasks have proven resistant to distributed labor, at least without a central organizer. Now a researcher has designed crowdsourcing frameworks that combine the best qualities of machine learning and…

New research leads to a screening test for patients on blood thinners to reduce the risk for a blood clot or stroke that's as easy as an in-home diabetes test.

Septic or infectious arthritis of the knee and Lyme disease have similar symptoms in children but require different immediate treatment to ensure optimal recovery. A new study identifies four symptoms that are predictive of septic arthritis when the condition presents itself in a child's knee -- an…

A combination of two compounds found in red grapes and oranges could be used to improve the health of people with diabetes, and reduce cases of obesity and heart disease. The find has been made by researchers who now hope that their discovery will be developed to provide a treatment for patients.

Gaze following in monkeys develops in a way that's nearly identical to humans, suggesting that the behavior has deep evolutionary roots, new research shows.

By studying an orphaned domain considered disordered by others, researchers may have found the key to possible drug therapies for nervous system diseases and inflammatory processes.

Treating high-risk hospitalized patients for sleep apnea may decrease the frequency of emergency rescues from hospital personnel, known as rapid response events, new research suggests.

American culture, as depicted in movies, magazines and advertising, places great emphasis on how women look, with the ideal often being unrealistic and unachievable for most women. One researcher studies body image in relation to women's physical, mental, and sexual health. According to her…

Scientists have shown that not all conventional Zika virus molecular diagnostic tests are sufficiently reliable. Diagnosing Zika viruses reliably is of major importance--for both patients and further research on the spread of the virus. The Zika virus is currently spreading in Central and South…

Up to now, research into pollen allergies has largely focused on allergens. Upon contact with the nasal mucous membrane, however, pollen releases a host of other substances. A team of researchers has investigated effects of these substances. It emerged that non-allergenic components have a…

A synthetic sugar-based molecule activates the immune system and could serve as a vaccine against C. difficile bacteria, say scientists. The discovery may pave the way for developing inexpensive and effective vaccines and drugs against the illness.

For the first time, science has shown a direct link between continued marijuana use during pregnancy and pre-term birth. The results show that once all other major risk factors have been accounted for, continued marijuana use through to 20 weeks' gestation is independently associated with a…

International remittances have poverty and inequality-reducing effects in Sub-Saharan Africa, new research suggests. The results suggest that a 10% increase in remittances as share of gross domestic product (GDP) will lead to a 1.2% decline in the number of people living on less than US$1.25 per…
