Researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro) of McGill University examined the effects of aging on neuroplasticity in the primary auditory cortex, the part of the brain that processes auditory information

People who suffer with persistent asthma from a young age are more likely to leave school at 16 years old and those who make it to university are more likely to drop out early, according to new research. The research also suggests that when this group of children grow up, they are less likely to work in certain non-manual occupations such as police officer, clerk or foreman.
A Phase 3 trial of Dupixent (dupilumab; Sanofi and Regeneron) in adolescent patients found that monotherapy resulted in significant improvements in the signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis. The findings were presented at the recent European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress.
Dupixent is an interleukin-4 and interleukin-13 inhibitor and is currently approved to treat moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in adults whose disease is not adequately controlled with topical prescription therapies.
Nearly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. These irreversible brain disorders slowly cause memory loss and destroy thinking skills, eventually to such an extent that self-care becomes very difficult or impossible.
PAREXEL International Corporation, a leading innovator of global biopharmaceutical services, and Datavant, Inc., a healthcare technology company focused on enabling the secure de-identification and linking of healthcare datasets, today announced they are partnering to enhance clinical study design and operations, as well as the generation of real-world evidence.
As part of PAREXEL's focus on providing innovative scientific and clinical data strategies, the collaboration will enable the linking of healthcare data from a variety of real-world and clinical study data sources to improve drug development and commercialization processes.
Spaceflight-induced physiological deconditioning resulting from the decreased gravitational input decreased plasma volume, and disruption of regulatory mechanisms is a significant problem in returning astronauts as well as in normal aging.
Here we review the effects of a promising countermeasure on cardiovascular systems of healthy men and women undergoing Earth-based models of space-flight. This countermeasure is produced by a centrifuge and called artificial gravity (AG).
Numerous studies have determined that AG improves orthostatic tolerance (as assessed by various protocols) of healthy ambulatory men, of men deconditioned by bed rest or by immersion (both wet and dry) and, in one case, following spaceflight.
Diagnosing Alzheimer's disease can be difficult, as several other conditions can cause similar symptoms. Now a new brain imaging method can show the spread of specific tau protein depositions, which are unique to cases with Alzheimer's
For the first time it has been shown open water swimming could be an effective treatment for depression. A case study published in British Medical Journal Case Reports suggests open water swimming might help people with depression be able to give up their medication and live happier lives.
Women with ovarian or endometrial cancer who followed the ketogenic diet for 12 weeks lost more body fat and had lower insulin levels compared to those who followed the low-fat diet recommended by the American Cancer Society, according to a new study published by researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham
The consumption of foods with higher scores on the British Food Standards Agency nutrient profiling system (FSAm-NPS), reflecting a lower nutritional quality, is associated with an increased risk of developing cancer, according to a study published this week in PLOS Medicine.
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Geriatrics Society (AGS), with funding from The John A. Hartford Foundation, today unveiled one of the field's first suites of online tools to aid surgeons and related medical sub-specialists who care for older people.
