Children who were exposed to higher levels of air pollution during the third trimester of their mother's pregnancy had a higher risk of elevated blood pressure in childhood, according to new research in the American Heart Association's journal Hypertension
The researcher has developed a new protein, which is important for the genetic stability of our cells. It may be significant for the development of new drugs against genetically determined diseases like cancer, sterility, and premature aging. All of our cells contain genetic material, DNA, which controls the activity of the cells. If the genetic material is damaged, cancer cells may develop. Therefore, many proteins and enzymes are responsible for stabilizing and protecting our DNA against permanent damage and mutations.

A new study determines that very few depression patients receive the treatment once known as 'shock therapy,' which today uses far milder electrical impulses than decades ago.

Its findings could inform depression care decisions by insurers and policymakers, as well as conversations between doctors and patients. The study was published in JAMA Psychiatry.

According to a new national analysis, drug-resistant staph infections continue to be deadlier than those that are not resistant and treatable with traditional antibiotics, but treatment costs surprisingly are the same or slightly less
Researchers team has developed a hypothesis, the interleaving of REM and non-REM sleep might facilitate creative problem-solving in different but complementary ways. Sleep is known to be important for creative thinking, but exactly how it helps and what role each sleep stage REM and non-REM plays remains unclear. The study was published in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences.
