Researchers from the California Institute of Technology have developed "erasable" magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents that can blink off on command with ultrasound technology, thereby revealing their location in the body.

According to a study, researchers estimated that women have previously experienced a heart attack have twice the risk of later myocardial ischemia provoked by mental stress when compared to men with a similar history. The samples of 418 individuals and found that impaired microvascular function in response to mental stress was responsible for the increased risk of ischemia, or obstructed blood flow to the heart, in women. The study was published in Circulation.
A tissue-engineered model with the potential to study cancer metastasis has been developed by researchers at the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. The model, reported in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering, better reflects the environment in and around tumors that have metastasized.
A team of researchers led by the University of Missouri has employed a mouse model exhibiting diabetic retinopathy symptoms that could lead to future translational research studies
A study described a key signalling protein in Huntington's disease which shows deleterious effects on heart function, going beyond the disease's devastating neurological impact. By adjusting protein levels affecting an important biological pathway, the researchers improved heart function in experimental animals, shedding light on the biology of this fatal disease. The study was published in Cell Reports.
Researchers from the University of Oregon used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to find clues for understanding differences in behavior among those with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental delays. The evidence may help plot a roadmap to boost kids' communication and social skills, and better manage their emotions and behavior.
According to the new research at Denmark, scientists explained that insulin and other treatments for type 2 diabetes do not impair bone metabolism
A study evaluates the biochemical indices during typical preseason training in wrestling athletes. Although regular training introduces the desired changes in athletes’ metabolism towards optimal final performance, literature is rarely focusing on the metabolic responses off-competition.
Previously, there have been concerns that brachytherapy for locally advanced cervical cancer might increase the risk, although the treatment itself is associated with better survival. However, a new study presented at the ESTRO 37 conference from two large international trials shows that intracavitary and interstitial (IC/IS) brachytherapy is safe and does not increase the risk of ureteral stricture.
Scientists from Bar-Ilan University in Israel, together with colleagues from Boston University, have discovered that brief arousals are probably triggered by the intrinsic electrical noise from wake-promoting neurons (WPN) in the brain, which is linked to Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
