In a study published today in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, based on patients' awareness of their memory problems, researchers have identified a useful method to predict who won't develop Alzheimer's disease. People who were not aware of their memory loss, a condition called anosognosia, were more likely to progress to Alzheimer's disease and those who were aware of memory problems were unlikely to develop dementia.

In a new study, researchers have evaluated standardised template feasibility for lung cancer MDTs, which provided clinical information and treatment recommendations to general practitioners (GPs).
Johns Hopkins researchers developed a way to successfully deliver nano-sized, platinum-based chemotherapy drugs to treat a form of bladder cancer called nonmuscle-invasive that is found in the lining of the organ and has not invaded deeper into bladder tissue. The tiny drug-infused particles, they say, potentially offer a less toxic clinical alternative to standard chemotherapy delivered intravenously or through a catheter inserted into the bladder.
A new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shown that experimental diabetes drugs can make cancer cells more vulnerable to traditional chemotherapy agents, and such combinations should be explored to potentially improve outcomes for cancer patients.
The lead author Dr. Daniel Velazquez-Villoria of POVISA Hospital and colleagues wrote, Subfoveal neurosensory retinal detachment may occur in association with pan-FGFR inhibitors treatment for metastatic cancer. Isolated subfoveal lesions and longer persistence of SRF (subretinal fluid) are features that may help in differentiating this entity from MEK retinopathy.
A new study presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium showed that younger women with operable breast cancer are increasingly likely to choose bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction instead of breast-conserving surgery, regardless of their response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
Richard Serna, an associate professor of psychology addressed the acute need for professionals trained in the most effective treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder. Early treatment is critical in addressing intellectual delays and disabilities, as well as in heading off behavioral problems.
Welfare technology is helpful in managing the day-to-day lives of the children who require attention and care.The research project Erre mulig? (Is it possible?), coordinated by SINTEF, has been looking into the application of welfare technology for children with these diagnoses.
Developing new antiretroviral (ARV) drugs and using technology for early diagnosis are among steps needed to sustain momentum in fighting HIV/AIDS and ending the disease as a public health threat by 2030, UNAIDS said in a report.
A new study, published in the Journal of Biomechanics , examines what may cause chronic back pain in runners and the exercises to help prevent it. The study findings suggest that they runners with weak deep core muscles are at higher risk of developing low back pain. And, unfortunately, most people's deep core muscles are not nearly as strong as they should be.
According to a new study published in American Journal of Critical Care (AJCC), critical care nurses who practice in healthy work environments (HWEs) report less moral distress and higher job satisfaction. The results increase the call for hospitals and healthcare organizations to improve the work environment and address barriers to practice.
In new research published in Nature Communications, the scientists have identified that high ADAR1 levels linked to decreased survival rates using a database of multiple myeloma patient samples and information. The team determined that blocking the enzyme reduces multiple myeloma regeneration in experimental models derived from patient cancer cells.
