Loss of Y Chromosome A Cause of Earlier Death in Men?
A new study published in Science outlines how a loss of the Y chromosome as men age could have harmful effects on health and reduce lifespan. The research, led by scientists at the University of Virginia (UVA) School of Medicine, may also provide an explanation for why women typically live longer than men.
AI Diagnoses Pre-Cancerous Growth Associated With Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Researchers have developed a new AI model that can diagnose and classify neoplastic lesions in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
Regular Pancreatic Cancer Screening for High Risk Individuals Pays Off
Researchers have conducted a multicenter study showing that surveillance programs for people at high risk of developing pancreatic cancers can help detect precancerous conditions and cancers early.
New Roadmap for Integrating Unchartered Genes Into Genome Databases
In a study, 7,200 segments of the human genome that are virtually unexplored have been brought together and a roadmap for integrating them into genome databases has been presented.
Infection Can Increase a Baby’s Sensitivity to Pain
Researchers have discovered that infection can increase a baby’s sensitivity to pain, which may last longer than the infection.
Study Identifies Child Cancer Patients Most at Risk of Serious Infections
New research has identified the child cancer patients at greatest risk of developing life-threatening infections, in a crucial step towards the development of an early diagnostic test.
Exposure to Phthalates Linked to Preterm Birth
Pregnant women who were exposed to multiple phthalates during pregnancy had an increased risk of preterm birth, according to new research by the National Institutes of Health.
Why Is It So Challenging for Humans To Have a Baby?
A research essay published in PLoS Biology suggests that “selfish chromosomes” identified in mammals could explain why so many human embryos are lost early in pregnancy.
Neuronal Changes That Help Fine Visual Discrimination Learning Are Identified
Scientists have discovered the neuronal changes that occur during learning to improve discrimination of closely related visual images.
Whole Exome Sequencing Helps To Predict If a Patient Will Respond to Cancer Immunotherapy
Researchers have developed an approach using whole exome sequencing to predict whether cancer patients will respond to immunotherapy.
