Health Factors Significantly Affected Women's Risk of Injury

Women who suffer from depression, anxiety, and fatigue are more likely to be injured at work, according to a new study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine led by researchers from the Colorado School of Public Health's Center for Health, Work & Environment on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. The study found that these health factors significantly affected women's risk of injury but not men's risk.

Elevated Troponins at Sepsis Predicts Mortality in CV Disease

Elevated levels of troponin I by high-sensitivity assay (hs-TnI) may predict mortality over the next 2 weeks, but not over the longer term, among patients with sepsis when measured during the first four days of an intensive care unit (ICU) stay, a new study suggests.

The results are from a prospective cohort study that excluded people with clinically apparent causes of troponin release.

Motion Capture-like Technology: Proteins fold into certain shape tracked

In many modern animated movies, the trick to achieving realistic movements for individual characters and objects lies in motion-capture technology. This process often involves someone wearing a tracking suit covered in small, colored balls while a camera captures the position of those colored balls, which is then used to represent how the person is moving. The paper was published in Biophysical Journal.
