According to an allergist, most people who believe they're allergic to this common antibiotic may not be allergic at all. In fact, 10 years after a mild reaction to the drug, up to 90 percent of people will have outgrown a penicillin allergy.

Researchers have demonstrated the utility of new brain tumor imaging tool in the surgeon's hand. This research largely focuses on new means to incorporate imaging methods to view cells of brain tumors with a hand held instrument that a neurosurgeon can use to visualize the individual cells during…

Eating together could help people with dementia avoid dehydration and malnutrition, new research shows. Researchers looked at mealtime interventions including changing the color of the plate, increasing exercise, waitress service, playing different types of music, singing, doing tai-chi, and…

There is some truth to the claim by parents of children with ADHD that their children have more difficulty falling asleep and that they sleep more poorly than other children, new research indicates.

Substantial differences have been observed in the way human heart cells respond to e-cigarette smoke and conventional cigarette smoke. Researchers have investigated how the same type of cells as those found in the arteries of the heart, known as human coronary artery endothelial cells (HCAEC),…

A new synthetic method has been developed for producing molecularly designed polymer membranes that has the potential to make chemical separation processes up to two orders of magnitude more efficient than using conventional membranes.

Do animals have a unique ability to comfort people, or are they just distractions from social pain?

Research suggests people are momentarily happier when drinking alcohol -- but that over longer periods, drinking more does not make them more satisfied with life.

An international team of researchers has developed a completely new type of drug carrier for targeted delivery to the sick organ -- the gel nano-capsules with a double shell.

Researchers have discovered that the human brain suppresses the sensory effects of the heartbeat. They believe that this mechanism prevents internal sensations from interfering with the brain's perception of the external world. This mechanism could also have something to do with anxiety disorders.

Primary care practices in a large California Medicaid managed care plan offering teledermatology had an increased fraction of patients who visited a dermatologist compared with other practices, according to an article.

Among patients experiencing some symptoms of depression, the use of a web-based guided self-help intervention reduced the incidence of major depressive disorder over 12 months compared with enhanced usual care, according to a study.

An estimated 30 percent of outpatient oral antibiotic prescriptions in the US in 2010-2011 may have been inappropriate, findings that support the need for establishing a goal for outpatient antibiotic stewardship, according to a study.

Disease can cause the cornea, the clear dome-shaped layer that covers the front of the eye, to gradually weaken until pressure in the eye causes it to bulge and leads to vision problems. A corneal transplant may eventually be necessary as the condition, known as keratoconus, progresses. However, a…

People who think they live in diverse neighborhoods are less likely to be accepting of minority ethnic groups, an international research project has found.

Researchers have assessed whether chemoradiotherapy improves overall survival of patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer controlled after four months of gemcitabine-based induction chemotherapy, and assessed the effect of erlotinib on survival. Gemcitabine and erlotinib are drugs used to…

A team of researchers has developed a pocket instrument capable of perceiving radio signals from 50 MHz to 6 MHz and storing this information in a non-volatile memory. After collecting and storing the information, the system assesses the daily exposure of a person to electromagnetic radiation.

Researchers report the first documentation that suppressing a key cell-signaling pathway in a rat model of Parkinson's disease reduces pathogenesis. Oral administration of AZD1480 -- one of the JAK/STAT pathway inhibitors generally known as Jakinibs -- lessened the destructive inflammation and…

Recently developed cures for hepatitis C virus will create new opportunities for people with other liver diseases to receive transplanted livers, say researchers.

The way we drive could help us understand how animals make their way, new research has found. The work sheds light on how our brains process what we see when at the wheel, as well as giving important insights into why animals take particular paths of travel.

A novel way of synthesizing a promising new antibiotic has been identified by scientists. By expressing the genes involved in the production of pleuromutilin in a different type of fungus, the researchers were able to increase production by more than 2,000 per cent.

Persons with the serious disorder ALS, can have a genetic mutation that causes the protein SOD1 to aggregate in motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. Researchers at have discovered that, when injected into mice, the SOD1 aggregation spreads rapidly leading to ALS.

Recent research offers new ideas for curbing unethical behavior by those with power -- it all depends on how people in power think about their power. In a series of three experiments, the authors demonstrated that activating prescriptive expectation, or what others believe people should do, leads…

Early intervention is the key to the best treatment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which affects about 1 in 70 children. Unfortunately, most children are not diagnosed until about age 4, when communication and social disabilities become apparent. A new blood biomarker that may aid in earlier…

The first recommendations on multimodality imaging assessment of prosthetic heart valves have been published. Heart valve replacement is performed using mechanical or biological prostheses. It is estimated that by 2050, some 850,000 prosthetic heart valves will be implanted every year in western…
