Early MRI May Lower Costs for Prostate Cancer Treatment

A diagnostic MRI followed by one of three MRI-guided biopsy strategies is a cost-effective method to detect prostate cancer, according to a new study out of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.

Exposure to BPA Potentially Induces Permanent Reprogramming of Painted Turtles’ Brains

16951400157_9b52603a1e_z_1.jpg

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that is used in a variety of consumer products, such as food storage containers, water bottles and certain resins. In previous studies, Cheryl Rosenfeld, an investigator in the Bond Life Sciences Center, along with other researchers at the University of Missouri, Westminster College and the Saint Louis Zoo, determined that BPA can disrupt sexual function and behavior in painted turtles. Now, the team has identified the genetic pathways that are altered as a result of BPA exposure during early development.

Penn Medicine Researchers Identify Biomarkers That May Predict Cognitive Impairment in New Parkinson’s Disease Patients

DanielWeintraub.jpg

New biomarkers identified by a research team in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania could help predict which Parkinson’s disease patients will suffer significant cognitive deficits within the first three years of their diagnosis. The results of the analysis from the international Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) are published this week in the open-access journal PLoS ONE.

Current Stimulation May Keep Visual Neurons Alive After Injury – but at a Cost

In a study published in Scientific Reports, researchers from Magdeburg University (Germany) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong report that for rats and mice, repetitive transorbital alternating current stimulation (rtACS) may help preserve visual neurons from cell death after injury.

For Parents, ‘Empty Nest’ Is Emotional Challenge

While “empty nest syndrome” is not a formal clinical diagnosis, most psychiatrists agree it’s a legitimate emotional moment when a young adult leaves home and the parents are faced with an empty bedroom—and silence.

Scientists Show How Defects in Blood-Brain Barrier Could Cause Neurological Disorder

Scientists for the first time have assembled a "disease in a dish" model that pinpoints how a defect in the blood-brain barrier can produce an incurable psychomotor disorder, Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome. The findings point to a path for treating this syndrome and hold promise for analyzing other neurological diseases.

Basis of ‘Leaky’ Brain Blood Vessels in Huntington’s Disease Identified

By using induced pluripotent stem cells to create endothelial cells that line blood vessels in the brain for the first time for a neurodegenerative disease, University of California, Irvine neurobiologists and colleagues have learned why Huntington’s disease patients have defects in the blood-brain barrier that contribute to the symptoms of this fatal disorder.

Sick Kids Live Longer, but Brain Function May Suffer

Hundreds of thousands of children with chronic illnesses who used to die are now surviving their disease and treatment—which is amazing. But their brains are being damaged in the process of keeping them alive. This first ever research quantifies the IQ impact of six main illnesses and looks and the common threads that connect them. It also takes next steps on how psychologists can team up with surgeons/oncologists, etc. to help treat kids and their parents, so they can thrive in school and life.

Diagnostic Biomarkers in Saliva Show Promise in Recognizing Early Alzheimer’s Disease

Beaumont Research Institute investigators are hopeful that their study involving small molecules in saliva will help identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
