  • Imaging technique shows progress Alzheimer's disease
    Using ‘Raman’ optical technology, scientists can now produce images of brain tissue that is affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The images include the surrounding areas, already showing changes. ... Read more »
  • Neurobiology: The chemistry of memory
    Learning requires the chemical adaptation of individual synapses. Researchers have now revealed the impact of an RNA-binding protein that is intimately involved in this process on learning and memory formation and learning processes. ... Read more »
  • Highly charged molecules behave paradoxically
    Chemistry researchers have now discovered how certain small biomolecules attach to one another. The researchers’ study also overturns the standard picture – particles with the same electrical charge appear to be drawn together and not vice versa. The results may be important for the development of new drugs. ... Read more »
  • Key to regenerating blood vessels discovered
    A signaling pathway that is essential for angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels, has been discovered by researchers. The findings may improve current strategies to improve blood flow in ischemic tissue, such as that found in atherosclerosis and peripheral vascular disease associated with diabetes. ... Read more »
  • China's reversing emission flows revealed by research
    The flow of China's carbon emissions has reversed, according to new research. The study estimates the carbon implications of recent changes in the country's economic development patterns and role in international trade since the global financial crisis. ... Read more »
  • Glucocorticoids offer long-term benefits for patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy
    Glucocorticoids, a class of steroid hormone medications often prescribed to patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, offer long-term benefits for this disease, including longer preservation of muscle strength and function and decreased risk of death. ... Read more »
  • Four simple tests could help GPs spot pneumonia and reduce unnecessary antibiotics
    Testing for fever, high pulse rate, crackly breath sounds, and low oxygen levels could be key to helping GPs distinguish pneumonia from less serious infections, according to a large study. ... Read more »
  • New approach to tracking how deadly 'superbugs' travel could slow their spread
    Using a real-world outbreak as a test case, a team combined patient-transfer data and whole-genome sequencing to identify hotspots for transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. ... Read more »
  • Women prefer getting mammograms every year
    Women prefer to get their mammograms every year, instead of every two years, according to a new study. ... Read more »
  • One-size treatment for blood cancer probably doesn't fit all, researchers say
    Though African-American men are three times more likely to be diagnosed with a blood cancer called multiple myeloma, most scientific research on the disease has been based on people of European descent. That trend is problematic considering that African-Americans -- the most at-risk population for multiple myeloma -- have different... Read more »
