A study includes of international research team, they have identified the new gene regions in young people who have already developed type 1 diabetes or who have started making antibodies against their insulin-producing cells, often a precursor state to the full-blown disease that leads to a lifetime of insulin therapy. This study is published in the Journal of Autoimmunity.

A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Digestive Disease and Sciences showed the results of using the Genetic Analysis (GA)-map™ Dysbiosis Test for identifying IBS patients who respond to the FODMAP diet and thus receive symptom relief.
A collaborative study of a cancer target protein reveals unusual relation between binding site flexibility and drug-target lifetime. The results, published in Nature Communications, suggest a new strategy for drug discovery. The research was done in the framework of the Kinetics for Drug Discovery K4DD consortium, supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative.
In a new study, researchers have developed a noninvasive tuberculosis test for people for whom such assessments have previously been difficult, i.e., people who don't have HIV. The researchers' test detects active tuberculosis infections from urine samples.
Methods from optogenetics and machine learning should improve treatment options for stroke patients. Researchers from Heidelberg University have developed a computer vision technique to analyze the changes in motor skills that result from targeted stimulation of healthy areas of the brain. Movements recorded with a video camera are automatically analyzed to monitor the rehabilitation process and evaluate and adjust the optogenetic stimulation.
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are at increased risk of serious infections, myocardial infarction (MI), and coronary heart disease (CHD), according to a study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
According to a report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many parents still regularly risk their babies' lives as they put them to bed. Analyzing data from the states, the CDC found that parents continued to practice unsafe habits that have been associated with sleep-related infant deaths , including sudden infant death syndrome ( SIDS ).
In a study published in Nature Cell Biology, the Researchers from the Genomic Instability and Cancer Laboratory at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) have identified a key role for EXD2 in protein production in the mitochondria, the cellular organelles responsible for the majority of energy generation.
According to a new study published in the issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, patients with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) are at risk of progressing to multiple myeloma or a related cancer—even after 30 years of stability.
Scientists in the US have found that regular infusions of blood plasma from young donors are safe to explore as a treatment option for people living with Alzheimer's disease. The results from the PLASMA trial, short for Plasma for Alzheimer's Symptom Amelioration, are presented at Clinical Trials Alzheimer's Disease Conference in Boston.
