Researchers at the University of Oulu in Finland have discovered novel genes and mechanisms that can explain how a genomic variant in a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs11672691 influences prostate cancer aggressiveness. Their findings also suggest ways to improve risk stratification and clinical treatment for advanced prostate cancer

A new study suggests that the As Safe as Possible (ASAP) intervention programme appears to help lessen the incidence of postdischarge suicide attempts among adolescents hospitalized for suicidality.
Researchers have shown that some tumors use not one but two levels of protection against the immune system. Knocking out one level boosted the protective effects of the second and vice versa.

A new drug-delivery technology which uses red blood cells (RBCs) to shuttle nano-scale drug carriers, called RBC-hitchhiking (RH), has been found to dramatically increase the concentration of drugs ferried precisely to selected organs
The collaborative study by researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology has developed a new technique to decode motor intention of humans from Electroencephalography (EEG). This technique is based on the well-documented ability of the brain to predict sensory outcomes of self-generated and imagined actions utilizing so-called forward models
Researchers have found that missing out on a good night’s sleep can leave you more likely to become depressed or suffer from bipolar disorder. The largest study of its kind put movement monitors on 91,000 people to track activity levels and survey levels of happiness. The findings, published in the journal Lancet, show being too active at night and inactive in the day was linked to lower mood.
For the first time, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Imperial College London, with international collaborators, have determined that Kawasaki Disease (KD) can be accurately diagnosed on the basis of the pattern of host gene expression in whole blood.
In metastatic breast cancer, prognosis and treatment are largely influenced by estrogen receptor (ER) expression of the metastases. However, little is known about ER expression across metastases throughout the body and surrounding normal tissue
The incredible amount of genetic diversity in parasites means humans are often infected with multiple strains, which could make infections worse and increase the prevalence of the parasite over time, according to a new study.
The European Psychiatric Association Section of Suicidology and Suicide Prevention reflects on the emergency department as a site for suicide risk management and prevention.
