USC scientists say Alzheimer's could be diagnosed earlier if scientists focus on an early warning within the brain's circulation system. That's important because researchers believe that the earlier Alzheimer's is spotted, the better chance there is to stop or slow the disease.

The SR101 N-(3-[18F]Fluoropropyl) sulfonamide ([18F]SRF101) is a Sulforhodamine 101 (SR101) derivative that was previously synthesized by our group. The fluorescent dye SR101 has been reported as a specific marker of astroglia in the neocortex of rodents in vivo
Gay and bisexual men are getting tested and using medications to prevent HIV transmission more than ever, with UNSW researchers recording an encouraging major shift towards new forms of prevention thanks to government-funded access programs.
An MRI scan often generates an ocean of data, most of which is never used. When overlooked data is analyzed using a new technique developed at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, they surprisingly reveal how many and which brain cells are present—and show where cells have been lost through injury or disease.
Compared with intramuscular pethidine, use of intravenous remifentanil patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) in labor reduces the proportion of epidural conversions, according to a study published in the Aug. 25 issue of The Lancet
New high-resolution maps pinpoint areas across Africa with concentrations of child deaths from diarrhea and show uneven progress over 15 years to mitigate the problem.
The hospice in Owen Sound is like most others in Canada appear to be they don’t perform assisted deaths, the president of the provincial association representing the hospice palliative care sector said Thursday. The issue was raised by Owen Sound resident Bob Hope. He questioned why the hospice in Owen Sound doesn’t allow assisted deaths there.
Alex Hector is a former board member and now executive director of Residential Hospice of Grey-Bruce Inc., which runs Chapman House hospice in Owen Sound. He and a board member, Dr. Hazel Lynn, said in interviews Thursday the board’s decision in 2016 and now not to allow assisted deaths but to facilitate them elsewhere when requested is philosophical.
Primary liver transplantation is associated with better long-term survival than is biliary-enteric drainage (BED) in infants with biliary atresia, according to a new study.
When mothers use marijuana during the first 12 years of their child's life, their cannabis-using children are more likely to start at an earlier age than children of non-using mothers, according to a new study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine
Scientists from the UNC School of Medicine discovered that the anti-inflammatory protein NLRP12 normally helps protect mice against obesity and insulin resistance when they are fed a high-fat diet.
The researchers also reported that the NLRP12 gene is underactive in people who are obese, making it a potential therapeutic target for treating obesity and diabetes, both of which are risk factors for cardiovascular disease and other serious conditions.
By using a larval zebrafish model, Dr. Du Jiulin's lab at the the Institute of Neuroscience and Zunyi Medical College revealed that two commonly used intravenous anesthetic drugs, propofol and etomidate, suppress the excitability of locus coeruleus neurons via synergic mechanisms thus inhibiting presynaptic excitatory inputs and inducing membrane hyperpolarization of these cells.
For many men and women with high blood pressure, lifestyle interventions can reduce the need for antihypertensive medications, a secondary analysis of the ENCORE study suggests.
