A warm-up program developed specially for children reduces soccer injuries by around 50%. Sports scientists from the University of Basel have reported these findings in the academic journal Sports Medicine. A total of 243 teams comprising around 3,900 children from four European countries took part in the study.

According to a study, researchers declared that the impression that foreign-born women in Sweden more often are excluded from gynecological cancer screening needs to be reconsidered. A study published in the journal PLOS One, makes it clear that foreign-born women participate to the same extent as women born in Sweden with a corresponding educational level and income.
A team led by scientists at Northwestern Medicine has discovered a new epithelial receptor for Epstein-Barr virus, according to a study published recently in Nature Microbiology.
Over 10,000 people in the U.S. are living with memory loss and other persistent neurological problems that occur after West Nile virus infects the brain. A new study in mice suggests that such ongoing neurological deficits may be due to unresolved inflammation that hinders the brain's ability to repair damaged neurons and grow new ones. When the inflammation was reduced by treatment with an arthritis drug, the animals' ability to learn and remember remained sharp after West Nile disease.
According to new research published in the International Journal for Quality in Health Care, the parents of paediatric patients might react more negatively to doctors who communicate uncertainty of diagnosis explicitly, such as directly stating they are unsure, as compared to doctors who use implicit language, such as discussing most likely diagnosis or providing several possible diagnoses under consideration.
According to this study, the heads of accident and emergency (A&E) departments of hospitals across England and Wales have warned Theresa May that more people are dying prematurely in the corridors of the A&E departments than before.

As the new study shows an experimental device could help quiet the phantom sounds by targeting unruly nerve activity in the brain. Results of the first animal tests and clinical trial of the approach resulted in a decrease in tinnitus loudness and improvement in tinnitus-related quality of life. This study got published in Science Translational Medicine.
The new study at Chalmers University of Technology now shows that there are potential technology-based solutions that can replace many of the metals with carbon nanomaterials, such as graphene. Scarce metals are found in a wide range of everyday objects around us. They are complicated to extract, difficult to recycle and so rare that several of them have become "conflict minerals" which can promote conflicts and oppression. This study is published in the Journal of Cleaner Production.
