A study published by the journal Environmental Science and Technology shows that excess emissions — which occur with plant shut-downs, start-ups and malfunctions, and not just in connection with natural disasters — can make serious contributions to overall air pollution. Only three states — Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma — systematically track and report excess emissions and make the data public.
A retrospective multicenter study revealed that the significant risk factors for SSI occurrence were open injury, advanced age, incision cleanliness II-IV, high-energy injury, more experienced surgeon level, higher BMI, chronic heart disease, history of allergy, and preoperative neutrophil count > 75%.
The researchers from the University of Liverpool and Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology, identifies the specific cellular process that helps cancer cells damaged as a result of proton beam therapy, repair themselves. The study was published online in The Red Journal.

When patients experience biochemical recurrence, the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level rises. However, there is no visual evidence of disease on conventional scans. A new study presented at the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (GUCS) shows that adding an imaging agent (18F-fluciclovine) to the positron-emission tomography (PET)/CT scans provides more information, and this has a substantial impact on clinical decisions for such patients.
Increasing evidence has linked autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with dysfunction of brain cerebellum, but the details have been unclear. In a new study published in Molecular Psychiatry , at Boston Children's Hospital used stem cell technology to create cerebellum cells known as Purkinje cells from patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). The lab-grown cells showed several characteristics that may help explain how ASD develops at the molecular level.
