A multidisciplinary team, led by Dr. Marietta Stadler from the School of Life Course Sciences, has been awarded £1.25 million by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to investigate an eating disorder where people with type 1 diabetes deliberately take too little insulin to try and control their weight.

In the late 1950s, the treatment for fractures involved three to four months in hospital in plaster-casts and traction. Recovery was slow, and up to 70% of patients experienced reduced mobility upon recovery.
The Brazilian Jiu jitsu knee-mount position can decrease blood flow in major limb arteries and may help control bleeding after injury, according to a small proof-of-concept study.
The new clinical review provides the most comprehensive treatment guidelines for severe atopic dermatitis (eczema). A team of investigators from the University of Colorado College of Nursing at CU Anschutz Medical Campus and National Jewish Health has identified comprehensive guidelines for managing severe atopic dermatitis (AD), the most common form of eczema.
New research from North Carolina State University and the University of South Florida finds significant flaws in recently released forensic software designed to assess the age of individuals based on their skeletal remains. The researchers report that, on average, the software's age estimates are off by more than 14 years.
A survival prediction model for patients with bone metastases arising from lung cancer would be highly valuable. The objective of the study was to develop and validate a nomogram for assessing the survival probability of patients with metastatic lung cancer receiving radiotherapy for osseous metastases.
In American women, breast cancer is the most common cancer and the second-leading cause of cancer death. While routine screening helps to detect breast cancer, existing technology frequently identifies suspicious lesions that turn out not to be cancer. In fact, up to 80% of the biopsies performed reveal the suspicious areas are not cancerous.
The jury has returned, and the verdict is in: If you treat dry eye disease with a protocol that includes purified fish oil, your patients will feel better. Seriously. It says so right there in the results section of the DREAM study.
Scientists have managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish for the first time. The breakthrough engineering technology, outlined in a new study published today in Nature, dramatically advances research of vascular diseases like diabetes, identifying a key pathway to potentially prevent changes to blood vessels—a major cause of death and morbidity among those with diabetes.
The holidays, winter weather, and the flu season have all prompted a blood shortage, the American Red Cross warns. The organization said today it had about 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations than needed during Christmas and New Year's.
Chaos in bodily regulation can optimize our immune system according to a recent discovery made by researchers at the University of Copenhagen's Niels Bohr Institute. The discovery may prove to be of great significance for avoiding serious diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
A mechanism which drives leukemia cell growth has been discovered by researchers at the University of Sussex, who believe their findings could help to inform new strategies when it comes to treating cancer. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a devastating blood cancer with around 3,000 new cases annually in the UK.
