  • Machine learning models help clinicians identify people who need advanced depression care August 20, 2019
    Researchers have created decision models capable of predicting which patients might need more treatment for their depression than what their primary care provider can offer. The algorithms were specifically designed to provide information the clinician can act on and fit into existing clinical workflows.
  • New hydrogels show promise in treating bone defects August 20, 2019
    Bioengineers and dentists have developed a new hydrogel that is more porous and effective in promoting tissue repair and regeneration. Once injected in a mouse model, the new hydrogel is shown to induce migration of naturally occurring stem cells to better promote bone healing. Current experimental applications using hydrogels and stem cells introduced into the […]
  • Studying organ crosstalk leads to a deeper understanding of sepsis August 20, 2019
    Sepsis, a complex systemic response to infection leading to organ failure, is generally studied at the level of individual organs; this research has hinted at altered metabolic changes. A new study takes a two-pronged approach and investigates for the first time the metabolic changes across affected organs in a large animal model of sepsis and […]
  • Examining the link between caste and under-five mortality in India August 20, 2019
    In India, children that belong to disadvantaged castes face a much higher likelihood of not living past their fifth birthday than their counterparts in non-deprived castes. Researchers examined the association between castes and under-five mortality in an effort to help reduce the burden of under-five deaths in the country.
  • The meat allergy: Researcher IDs biological changes triggered by tick bites August 20, 2019
    Researchers have identified key immunological changes in people who abruptly develop an allergic reaction to mammalian meat, such as beef. The work is an important step in developing a treatment for the strange allergy triggered by tick bites.
  • Shedding light on the reaction mechanism of PUVA light therapy for skin diseases August 20, 2019
    Physical chemists have clarified which chemical reactions take place during PUVA therapy. The therapy involves light-induced damage to the DNA of diseased cells.
  • Skeletal shapes key to rapid recognition of objects August 20, 2019
    In the blink of an eye, the human visual system can process an object, determining whether it's a cup or a sock within milliseconds, and with seemingly little effort. It's well-established that an object's shape is a critical visual cue to help the eyes and brain perform this trick. A new study, however, finds that […]
  • Low levels of vitamin D in elementary school could spell trouble in adolescence August 20, 2019
    Vitamin D deficiency in middle childhood could result in aggressive behavior as well as anxious and depressive moods during adolescence, according to a new study of school children in Bogotá, Colombia.
  • Multi-tasking protein at the root of neuropathic pain August 20, 2019
    Neuropathic pain is a chronic condition resulting from nerve injury and is characterized by increased pain sensitivity. Although known to be associated with overly excitable neurons in the spinal cord, the mechanisms leading to chronic pain are poorly understood. Researchers have now shown that expression of a protein called FLRT3 in the spinal dorsal root […]
