A study of the the first clean cookstove intervention in India financed through the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism found expected benefits from newer, more 'efficient' stoves -- based on their performance in lab tests -- did not materialize in the field.
A new study has shown that a new class of drug candidates developed at The Scripps Research Institute increases bone mass by expanding bone formation (deposition of new bone) and bone turnover (a normal process of replacement of old bone).
Clues that point toward new risk mechanisms for developing Parkinson's disease are hiding in some unusual spots, according to a study published today in Scientific Reports.
New model provides a fresh perspective that can sharpen research aimed at pinning down lithium's biochemical targets and guide design of new treatments of mood disorders that are as effective as lithium but with fewer side effects.
A new study by researchers at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that lifestyle modification programs modeled on diabetes prevention programs (DPP) trials not only achieved weight reduction, but also additional metabolic benefits -specifically, reductions in blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
Today during the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery's (SNIS) 13th Annual Meeting, SNIS President Donald Frei, M.D., announced that the Penumbra 3-D Trial successfully met the primary trial endpoints, demonstrating non-inferiority in safety and efficacy of Penumbra 3-D Revascularization Device, when used with Penumbra System aspiration devices compared to Penumbra System aspiration devices alone.
With a shortage of donor organs, Mayo Clinic is exploring therapeutic strategies for patients with debilitating liver diseases. Researchers are testing a new approach to correct metabolic disorders without a whole organ transplant. Their findings appear in Science Translational Medicine.
Researchers investigated the effects of sole-source light-emitting diodes (LEDs) of different light qualities and intensities on growth, morphology, and nutrient content of three species of Brassica microgreens. As light intensity increased, plants' hypocotyl length decreased and percent dry weight increased (regardless of light quality). Nutrient content in all three species decreased as light intensity increased. The study provides information to assist growers with decisions regarding lighting practices for production of microgreens based on market needs.
In a cross-sectional analysis published online today in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers looked at the association between habitual nut consumption and inflammatory biomarkers among 5,013 men and women participating in two ongoing prospective cohort studies.
Humans rely on boundaries like walls and curbs for navigation, and Johns Hopkins University researchers have pinpointed the areas of the brain most sensitive to even the tiniest borders.
