Boys who have considerable weight gain between childhood and puberty, double the risk of having asthma as an adult, and for future offspring

In the brain, as in business, connections are everything. To maintain cellular associates, the outer surface of a neuron, its membrane, must express particular proteins proverbial hands that reach out and greet nearby cells.
And, like a creepily long handshake, surface molecules can overstay their welcome: A protein that lingers too long on the membrane may compromise the connections, or synapses, between cells.
ViewRay Inc. announced that Acibadem Maslak Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey has begun treating patients with ViewRay's MRIdian Linac. The MRIdian Linac is the first system to combine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance and linear accelerator radiation delivery.
The ALSAM Foundation recently invested an additional $2 million to continue the Therapeutic Innovation Grants Program at the CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The funding supports the second phase of grants for projects focused on drug discovery and development.
A new cell culture platform allows researchers to observe never-before-seen behaviors of live cancer cells under the microscope, leading to explanations of long-known cancer characteristics. The easy-to-produce platform developed by Hokkaido University researchers offers cancer cells micro-scale attachment sites that elicit never-before-seen behaviors highly relevant to cancer's clinical properties.
The observation of these behaviors shed light on the mechanisms behind well-known properties of pancreatic cancer, one of the most lethal malignant tumors, and may lead to the identification of new treatment targets.
Exposure to pollution at key stages of pregnancy may result in significant increases in newborn total thyroxine (T4) concentrations, with early and mid-pregnancy found to be windows of risk, according to a new study
Globally, the healthcare industry is seeing a transformational shift in the use of next-generation technologies like big data, cloud computing, predictive analytics, mobility, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The objective is to leverage the vast amounts of clinical, operational and financial data at the disposal of hospitals, insurance companies, and even in the hands of patients to drive efficiencies, improve quality of care, minimise risks and move towards a care delivery model that is truly 'value-based.'
A long trip to space involves facing several dangerous elements. Astronauts can be felled by radiation, develop health problems owing to a lack of consistent sleep, or become psychologically damaged by spending a long time in isolation.
NASA is working on countermeasures to mitigate the risk that these hazards pose to astronauts, as the agency explained in a recent five-part series on “Houston, We Have A Podcast.” Read on to learn more about the dangers that astronauts face, and what NASA is doing about them.
The taller you are, the more likely you are to develop varicose veins, according to a study led by Stanford University School of Medicine researchers that examined the genes of more than 400,000 people in search of clues to what causes this common but little-understood condition
On 11 September 2018, HealthMap noted a news- media report of a mystery disease in Kanchanrup Municipality of Saptari in Nepal. The original report specified 3 deaths and 400 affected, presenting with high fever, cough, joint pain, headache, and muscle cramps within the last 15 days of the report.
More information on the source of illness, other symptoms, confirmation of case count, and disease identification were sought through the EpiCore system’s Request for Information (RFI).
French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday unveiled plans to make France's health care system, considered one of the best in the world, more efficient and sustainable for the next 50 years.
Babies exposed to higher levels of organochlorine compounds in the womb go on to have worse lung function in childhood, according to new research presented today (Tuesday) at the European Respiratory Society International Congress
