According to a study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, women who are pregnant or who want to get pregnant will want to avoid diets that reduce or eliminate carbohydrates , as they could increase the risk of having babies with neural tube birth defects ill . The study findings were published in the journal Birth Defects Research
A new method to create synthetic neurons allows researchers to investigate how the human brain makes metabolic building blocks essential for the survival of all living organisms. A new study describes a core enzyme involved in the synthesis of these building blocks, called purines, and how the enzyme might change during infection by herpes simplex virus. An early version of the paper describing the enzyme appears online in Jan. 2018 in the Journal of Neurochemistry, and a paper describing the neuron-like cells appeared in Dec. 2017 issue of the Journal of Virology.
A new Project Research Openness for Validation with Empirical Data (PROVEDIt) database that can help to bring more reliability to the interpretation of complex DNA evidence. The database will help reduce the risk of misinterpreting the profile. PROVEDIt database is published in the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics.
In a study, researchers examined observational study of Children with Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS), characterized principally by abnormal fusion of 2 or more cervical vertebrae, may have many additional congenital anomalies. The overall prevalence of otolaryngologic manifestations among patients with KFS has not been previously characterized.
Researchers at deCODE genetics demonstrate that parental genes, both those that are transmitted to the child and those not transmitted, can affect the child's fate through their impact on the parents and the kind of nurturing they provide. The researchers call this phenomenon "genetic nurture." The study findings were published in the Science.
People on welfare can earn more money in their jobs — and potentially leave the program — if the trauma they have faced since childhood is addressed, Drexel University research shows.
According to a study, researchers examined renal Transplantation and Malignant Melanoma, Solid organ transplantation, although lifesaving for patients with end-stage renal, liver, or heart disease, requires chronic immunosuppressive therapy that increases the risk for cancer, including lymphoma and skin cancer.
The discovery of a new toxin in a strain of Enterococcus is raising scientific eyebrows. Isolated from cow feces sampled at a South Carolina farm, the bug was unexpectedly found to carry a toxin resembling the toxin that causes botulism. The finding was reported in the journal Cell Host and Microbe .
Researchers evaluated the safety, survival and anti-tumour activity of tumour-specific T cells rendered resistant to transforming growth factor β (TGFβ), in patients with Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) positive lymphoma. The study outcomes appear in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
In a new study published in the issue of Science Translational Medicine, researchers have developed a simple, swallowable test (>90% sensitive) for early detection of Barrett's esophagus that offers promise for preventing deaths from esophageal adenocarcinoma.
