The Mediterranean diet can improve your mind, as well your heart, shows a new study.

It is known that people who have attempted suicide have ongoing inflammation in their blood and spinal fluid. Now, a collaborative study shows that suicidal patients have a reduced activity of an enzyme that regulates inflammation and its byproducts.

Researchers developed a computational algorithm to analyze 'Big Data' obtained from tumor samples to better understand and treat cancer.

Are lower levels of physical activity among African-American teens related to hair care? A new study has centralized itself around this very question.

Previous research has found that bisphenol S (BPS), a chemical used in the manufacture of plastic bottles and other products, is as harmful to the reproductive system as bisphenol A (BPA), which BPS replaced. Research suggests that BPS can damage a woman's eggs - and at lower doses than BPA.

In a tumor's pre-clinical stages, certain immune cells can recognize changes that make these cells behave as cancerous cells and attempt to launch an immune attack. However, the T cells that are recognizing these 'driver' mutations in the tumor are rapidly turned off and then permanently silenced,…

Scientists have discovered the mechanism of the platelet programmed cell death, resulting in acceleration of the blood coagulation process by a factor of 1,000 to 10,000.

An evolutionary historian has determined that the region of origin of ancestors contributes to descendants' risk of developing certain medical conditions.

Scientists have proposed a solution to the puzzle of how our immune system scales its response to any threat to our health to make it 'just right.' Their ideas could support a range of medical research. While T-cells usually move around the body, when an infection occurs, they slow down and…

Researchers have found that the expansion of Medicaid insurance coverage in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act did not increase hospital emergency department visits, as was widely predicted by policymakers and researchers.

In a new study, researchers describe a new system that permits database queries for genome-wide association studies but reduces the chances of privacy compromises to almost zero.

For patients with the most common type of noninvasive breast cancer, routine testing for estrogen and progesterone receptors in tissue taken at the first 'needle' biopsy is both unnecessary and wasteful, according to results of a study.

Scientists have now have a high-resolution view of exactly how the experimental therapy ZMapp targets Ebola virus. The new study is also the first to show how an antibody in the ZMapp 'drug cocktail' targets a second Ebola virus protein, called sGP, whose vulnerable spots had previously been…

Older adults are better at interpreting the correct slope of a hill than young adults, which researchers believe is because of greater life experience.

A racial disparity has been found in opioid prescriptions for emergency department visits for non-definitive pain-related conditions, say authors of a new report.

They're two of the biggest mysteries in Parkinson's disease research -- where does the disease start? And how can it be stopped early in the process?

Genetic research is a valuable tool in understanding diseases and their prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. However, significant obstacles limit the clinical use of this knowledge to all groups. Genetic applications in healthcare must advance in a way that reduces racial and ethnic disparities.

A refill synchronization program -- in which patients were able to receive all refills at the same time -- increased medication adherence by more than 10 percent in some patient subgroups, new research shows.

Autonomous adenomas are the most common benign tumors of the thyroid gland. Mutations in two genes account for around 70 percent of the cases. Scientists have now discovered another key trigger.

Nearly one-third of the adult population worldwide had hypertension in 2010. For the first time in history, high blood pressure is more common in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries. Three-quarters of the world's adults with hypertension live in low- and middle-income…

Researchers have identified a new potential target for drugs to prevent type 2 diabetes. A new paper shows that blocking a cellular glucose sensor in muscle improves insulin responsiveness.

Two months ago, NCCIH released a new Strategic Plan that emphasizes which areas of research on complementary and integrative health are of strategic interest to the Center─including those designated as high-priority.

Basic information on the traditional Chinese medicine practice, cupping.

Many types of cancer are caused by gene mutations in the signalling pathways that control cell growth, such as the hedgehog signalling pathway. A new study now surprisingly shows that in colon cancer hedgehog signalling has a protective function.

A new study found that when husbands and wives get more sleep than on an average night, they are more satisfied with their marriages, at least the following day.
