Weight Loss People Have Different Behavioral And Physiological Responses To Food

According to a study, the researcher examined that successful weight loss maintainers have different behavioral and physiological responses to food than people with obesity and their lean counterparts. The findings indicate that a reduced physiological response to highly palatable foods such as pizza, and reduced sensitivity towards "winning" foods, may help explain why some individuals are able to successfully lose weight in the long-term.

Antibiotic Use and Asthma Flare-up

Unnecessary antibiotic use in adults hospitalized for asthma exacerbation without lung infection is common and associated with increased length of stay and risk for antibiotic-related diarrhea, with no apparent benefit, a new study shows.

Most Of Us Count On More Time Dodging The Dementia Bullet

New research about "cognitive life expectancy"  how long older adults live with good versus declining brain health shows that after age 65 men and women spend more than a dozen years in good cognitive health, on average. And, over the past decade, that time span has been expanding. They have chances to develop cognitive impairment or dementia in their life-span.

World Needs More Than One Ebola Vaccine, Study Finds

In the life-and-death race to make the first effective vaccine against Ebola, one company – Merck – seems bound to win. But others drugmakers, such as Johnson & Johnson and GlaxoSmithKline, are also in the running – and must stick with it even though they are unlikely to make a profit, experts say because the world needs more than one Ebola vaccine.

New Method For Finding Disease-Susceptibility Genes

According to a new study, the researcher has presented a novel statistical algorithm, capable of identifying potential disease genes in a more accurate and cost-effective way. This algorithm has also been considered as a new promising approach for the identification of candidate disease genes, as it works effectively with less genomic data and takes only a minute or two to get results. The study was published in Nucleic Acids Research.

Transmission Electron Microscope Measures The Structure Of A Material

Researchers have found a way to harness the power of Transmission Electron Microscope(TEM), which is used to measure the structure of a material at the highest possible resolution determining the 3-D position of every individual atom. Understanding the microscopic structure of a material is key to understanding how it functions and its functional properties. Advances in fields like materials science have increasingly pushed abilities to determine these features to even higher resolutions.
