In the study, UC San Francisco scientists exposed a common genetic cause of aggressive meningiomas, which could help doctors detect such dangerous cancers earlier and lead to new therapies aimed at curing these difficult-to-treat tumors

Using a revolutionary new brain-mapping technology recently developed at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), an international team of scientists led by Professor Anthony Zador has made a discovery that will force neuroscientists to rethink how areas of the cortex communicate with one another
A single bout of exhaustive exercise performed right before taking a dose of olanzapine could be a way to protect against drug-induced hyperglycemia, a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports reports.
The present study is first of its kind in children, Kehler and her colleagues at the Vanderbilt Eye Institute are all set to conduct a trial to study the effectiveness of atropine drops in slowing the progression of myopia
As part of comprehensive maternal and fetal care, prenatal micronutrient supplements should be considered as "uniquely effective first steps in decreasing risk for future psychiatric and other illnesses in newborn children," says the review of research
Researchers from the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions studied the use of nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and looked at new strategies to reduce NRTIs side effects and at the potential for a long-acting delivery system.
In the present study, a hormone-free women's contraceptive with no side effects is one promising use for a new technique developed by researchers to tighten up the mucous membrane – the body’s first line of defense in protecting its inner lining
A study determined that the wall that surrounds bacteria to shield them from external assaults has long been a tantalizing target for drug therapies. Indeed, some of modern medicine's most strong antibiotics disarm harmful bacteria by disrupting the proteins that build their protective armor. The study was published in Nature.
A new study published in the journal Hepatology revealed that a gut microbiome metabolite known as 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl) lactate correlated significantly with liver fibrosis and demonstrated a shared gene-effect with hepatic steatosis and fibrosis.
Diuretic therapy—commonly given to extremely preterm infants to help them overcome respiratory problems—appears to offer no benefit for this purpose, according to an analysis by researchers at the National Institutes of Health.
Surprisingly, infants in the study who received diuretic therapy were more likely to require respiratory support, compared to extremely preterm infants with similar respiratory problems who did not receive the therapy. The study is published in the Journal of Pediatrics.
A new study published in the journal The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology suggest that use of day-case large-volume paracentesis for patients with liver disease at the end of life is associated with lower costs, reduced pressure on acute hospital services, and a lower probability of dying in hospital compared with unplanned care, highlighting the importance of advance planning of care for both patients and health-care systems.
