Note to Teens: Just Breathe

UCLA researchers have found that a workshop for adolescents that teaches skills to keep impulsive acts under control, is effective. Such impulsive behavior often leads to negative acts including substance abuse and violence.

Indiana University scientists have transformed mouse embryonic stem cells into key structures of the inner ear. The discovery provides new insights into the sensory organ's developmental process and sets the stage for laboratory models of disease, drug discovery and potential treatments for hearing loss and balance disorders.

Study Puts Troubling Traits of H7N9 Avian Flu Virus on Display

The emerging H7N9 avian influenza virus responsible for at least 37 deaths in China has qualities that could potentially spark a global outbreak of flu, according to a new study published today (July 10, 2013) in the journal Nature.

Researchers at Joslin Diabetes Center have discovered that when excessive PKC beta is found in the endothelium, the thin layer of cells that line blood vessels, atherosclerosis is exacerbated. Their findings could lead to treatments to reduce the risk of CVD in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Factors Influencing Delay in Breast Cancer Treatment Differ for African-American and White Women

The study used data from the Carolina Breast Cancer Study (CBCS) Phase III, a program of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Scientists found that among White women, household size and losing a job due to one's diagnosis were reasons for delay in treatment, while among African-American women, the type of treatment received influenced delay. Both African-American and white women experienced delay if they underwent immediate breast reconstruction following mastectomy. African-American women were more likely than white women to experience delay associated with this procedure (92.5 percent versus 60.6 percent).

Researchers Create Method to Rapidly Identify Specific Strains of Illness

Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and George Washington University (GWU) have developed a method to rapidly identify pathogenic species and strains causing illnesses, such as pneumonia, that could help lead to earlier detection of disease outbreaks and pinpoint effective treatments more quickly.

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have published one of the first laboratory studies of MDPV, an emerging recreational drug that has been sold as “bath salts.” The TSRI researchers found evidence that it could be more addictive than methamphetamine, one of the most addictive substances to date.

Tots Who Sleep Less Have More Behavior Problems, Says Study in Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics

Four-year-olds with shorter than average sleep times have increased rates of "externalizing" behavior problems, reports a study in the July Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, the official journal of the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

Stroke Recovery Theories Challenged by New Studies Looking at Brain Lesions, Bionic Arms

Stroke is the country’s leading cause of disability, leaving millions with residual arm and leg weakness. However, efforts have usually focused on stroke prevention and acute care. Now, two new studies suggest that stroke survivors left weakened or partially paralyzed may be able to regain more arm and hand movement even years after a stroke - information that clinicians may not know or pass on to their patients.
