Will UK Public Approval of Whole Genome Sequencing for Newborn Screenings Lead to National Rollout?
There are still a number of critical questions that need to be answered before WGS becomes a staple of neonatal care in the NHS. What are its benefits? What are the costs involved? What potential ethical issues does it incur?
The Neuroscience of... Birth
Our new series, The Neuroscience of… explores how the brain orchestrates the critical events and behaviors of human life. In this article, we take a look at the numerous changes affecting a mother’s brain before and after birth, and then consider why so little research has been conducted on the brain during birth.
A Potential New Treatment Target for Eczema
A new study suggests that the common inflammatory skin condition eczema may stem from poorly regulated sex hormones.
Diabetes Medications Linked to Glaucoma Prevention
According to a study, a popular class of medications called GLP-1R agonists may also protect against glaucoma in diabetic patients.
“Original” SARS-CoV-2 Antibodies Don’t Bind Well to New Variants
People infected with the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 early in the pandemic produced a consistent antibody response, making two main groups of antibodies to bind to the spike protein. However, a new study has found that those antibodies don’t bind well to newer variants.
Why We Need To Investigate Menstrual Changes After COVID-19 Vaccination
Technology Networks interviewed Dr. Victoria Male to learn more about the plausible link between COVID-19 vaccines and menstrual cycles, and what kind of research she would like to see in this space. Male also discussed why a lack of conversation surrounding menstruation may lead individuals to conceal information in this context.
Making Vaccines Accessible to All: A Conversation With UNICEF
Technology Networks spoke with UNICEF about the challenges in achieving vaccine equality, what factors contribute to low immunization rates, how we can work to make vaccines available to marginalized communities and the consequences of vaccine inequality.
Memories of Cancer: What the Extracellular Matrix Can Tell Us About Cancer and How To Combat It
Chronic inflammation has long been linked to cancer, especially the most lethal and untreatable types. But the details of this mysterious relationship have also long defied scientific elucidation – until now.
