Almost 20% of children and adolescents used prescription medications in 2013 to 2014, and 8.2% of concurrent users of prescription medications in 2009 to 2014 was at risk for a potentially major drug-drug interaction (DDI), according to a study published in the September issue of Pediatrics.

An intraoperatively placed airway device is well tolerated and maintains nasal patency after rhinoplasty and nasal reconstruction without increasing the risk of incisional dehiscence, researchers in California say.
Nearly half of residents report burnout during their second year of residency, and 1 in 7 reports regretting their career choice, according to a prospective study published online today in JAMA.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital investigators have unraveled the origins and identified mutations associated with a perplexing form of acute leukemia. The landmark study appears today as an advance online publication in the journal Nature and lays the foundation for more effective treatment of patients with high-risk cancer.
Identifying and reducing diagnostic errors in the intensive care unit (ICU) should be a top priority. The study was published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society. Researchers highlighted the problem of diagnostic error in the ICU and discussed areas that warrant further exploration.
Ever since astronauts began going to space for extended periods of time, it has been known that long-term exposure to zero-gravity or microgravity comes with its share of health effects. These include muscle atrophy and loss of bone density, but also extend to other areas of the body leading to diminished organ function, circulation, and even genetic changes.
For this reason, numerous studies have been conducted aboard the International Space Station (ISS) to determine the extent of these effects, and what strategies can be used to mitigate them. According to a new study which recently appeared in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, a team of NASA and JAXA-funded researchers showed how artificial gravity should be a key component of any future long-term plans in space.
There are several types of cancer that start to provide symptoms from a very early stage. While breast cancer patients have witnessed a lump on their breast area, people suffered from skin cancer have seen unusual moles or any unusual spot that changes color on their bodies. But, symptoms of head and neck cancers usually cannot be seen from outside.
Biochemists have achieved a major goal in biology: seeing at near atomic detail the smallest protein ever visualized by the technique whose development won the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry. Until now, this method has not worked with the small proteins inside cells.
UCLA biochemists have achieved a first in biology: viewing at the near-atomic detail the smallest protein ever seen by the technique whose development won its creators the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry.
That technique, called cryo-electron microscopy, enables scientists to see large biomolecules, such as viruses, in extraordinary detail. The research is published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
