New paper published in Psychopharmacology by researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch shows frustration is additional factor that can lead to addiction escalation.
A school-based cavity prevention program involving nearly 7,000 elementary school students reduced cavities by more than 50 percent, according to a study led by researchers at NYU College of Dentistry.
Black Americans are often skeptical about the nation's health care system, a result of systemic racism. A new survey finds that Black Americans have a high level of vaccine hesitancy and mistrust of COVID-19 vaccines, including among Black health care workers.
A new review published by Wiley in the journal Advanced Genetics analyzes disparities in experience and treatment of sickle cell disease.
Mass comms researchers from the University of Kansas conducted a study to see what makes people susceptible to fake health news. They found the credentials of the author and how the info is written make little difference in how people assess health news, but that social media efficacy and labeling of potentially false info makes people think more critically about what they're reading.
By analyzing blood samples from individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2, researchers in Singapore have begun to unpack the different responses by the body's T cells that determine whether or not an individual develops COVID-19. The study, published today in the Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM), suggests that clearing the virus without developing symptoms requires T cells to mount an efficient immune response that produces a careful balance of pro- and anti-inflammatory molecules.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC or Δ-THC) is a psychoactive cannabinoid that can be found in hemp-containing foods. Above a certain intake, the substance can have undesirable health consequences, such as mood swings and fatigue.
The results of a new Danish study by researchers from iPSYCH show that the amount of green space surrounding children's homes has influence for the risk of developing ADHD. The study is so far the largest of its kind.
Scientists modified the existing SIR class pandemic prediction model. The model becomes more accurate, as the reduction of individuals in contact during the pandemic is objectively present in society. Moreover, the modification creates the possibility for scenario modelling.
Assessing a drug compound by its activity, not simply its structure, is a new approach that could speed the search for COVID-19 therapies and reveal more potential therapies for other diseases. This action-based focus -- called biological activity-based modeling (BABM) -- forms the core of a new approach developed by National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) researchers and others.
