Published Can preeclampsia be prevented? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Preeclampsia is a mysterious condition that occurs in about one of 10 pregnancies without any early warning signs. After 20 weeks or more of normal blood pressure during the pregnancy, patients with preeclampsia will begin to experience elevated blood pressure and may also have increased levels of protein in their urine due to hypertension reducing the filtering power of the kidneys. Prolonged hypertension due to preeclampsia can lead to organ damage and life-threatening complications for mothers and fetuses.
Published Researchers caution diabetes patients' use of fitness video games (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The authors of a new study are warning people with type-1 diabetes to use fitness video games with caution. The study has found that 'exergames' can change people's perceptions of how fatigued they are -- which is potentially harmful for those with the condition.
Published High altitude training shows promise for patients ahead of surgery (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Simulated high altitude could help older patients at risk of health complications related to surgery, a new study has found.
Published Children who play baseball risk elbow injury (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Youth baseball players are prone to elbow pain and injuries, including repetitive overuse changes and fractures, based on the maturity of their bones, according to a new study.
Published Brain waves usually found in sleep can protect against epileptic activity (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Slow waves that usually only occur in the brain during sleep are also present during wakefulness in people with epilepsy and may protect against increased brain excitability associated with the condition, finds a new study.
Published Early body contact develops premature babies' social skills (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Skin-to-skin contact between parent and infant during the first hours after a very premature birth helps develop the child's social skills. The study also shows that fathers may play a more important role than previous research has shown.
Published AI may aid in diagnosing adolescents with ADHD (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Using artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze specialized brain MRI scans of adolescents with and without attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), researchers found significant differences in nine brain white matter tracts in individuals with ADHD.
Published Common headaches tied to neck inflammation (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have identified objective evidence of how the neck muscles are involved in primary headaches, according to a new study.
Published Are healthy foods automatically sustainable, too? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Perceptions about sustainability and healthy food choices are closely linked, a new study shows.
Published Mindfulness-based intervention shows promise for PTSD in cardiac arrest survivors (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A novel pilot study incorporating mindfulness into exposure therapy shows promise for reducing symptoms of post-traumatic stress in cardiac arrest survivors. One in three survivors of cardiac arrest survivors develop PTSD, increasing their risk of mortality, yet no specific treatment has been developed for this population.
Published Drugs already licensed could be trialled to potentially treat secondary brain cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The largest review of papers for brain cancer that has spread from the lungs has found abnormalities in the brain cancer and for which licensed drugs could be clinically trialed to find out if they could treat the disease. The research also found genetic differences between smokers and non-smokers.
Published Eye-safe laser technology to diagnose traumatic brain injury (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have designed and developed a novel diagnostic device to detect traumatic brain injury (TBI) by shining a safe laser into the eye.
Published Researchers find connections between neuroinflammation and Alzheimer's disease (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Investigators revealed how genetic changes in certain types of brain cells may contribute to the inflammatory response seen in Alzheimer's disease.
Published Stronger thigh muscles may prevent knee replacement surgery (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Stronger quadriceps muscles, relative to the hamstrings, may lower the risk of total knee replacement, according to new research. Researchers said the findings could inform strength-training programs for people with advanced arthritis in the knee.
Published New framework for using AI in health care considers medical knowledge, practices, procedures, values (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Health care organizations are looking to artificial intelligence (AI) tools to improve patient care, but their translation into clinical settings has been inconsistent, in part because evaluating AI in health care remains challenging. In a new article, researchers propose a framework for using AI that includes practical guidance for applying values and that incorporates not just the tool's properties but the systems surrounding its use.
Published Child care centers aren't a likely source of COVID-19 spread, study says (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Parents who send their children to child care can breathe a little easier. New research shows that children in daycare were not significant spreaders of COVID-19.
Published Testosterone hormone therapy for transmasculine individuals is safer than previously thought, researchers find (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A common concern about gender-affirming hormone therapy for transmasculine people is the risk of red blood cell volume changes and erythrocytosis, a high concentration of red blood cells, with the use of prescribed testosterone. However, researchers have found that testosterone treatment may be safer than previously reported.
Published AI may spare breast cancer patients unnecessary treatments (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new AI (Artificial Intelligence) tool may make it possible to spare breast cancer patients unnecessary chemotherapy treatments by using a more precise method of predicting their outcomes, reports a new study. AI evaluations of patient tissues were better at predicting the future course of a patient's disease than evaluations performed by expert pathologists.
Published Early-stage stem cell therapy trial shows promise for treating progressive MS (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
An international team has shown that the injection of a type of stem cell into the brains of patients living with progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) is safe, well tolerated and has a long-lasting effect that appears to protect the brain from further damage.
Published Stem cell-based treatment controls blood sugar in people with Type 1 diabetes (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
An innovative stem cell-based treatment for Type 1 diabetes can meaningfully regulate blood glucose levels and reduce dependence on daily insulin injections, according to new clinical trial results. The therapy aims to replace the insulin-producing beta cells that people with Type 1 diabetes lack. Dubbed VC-02, the small medical implant contains millions of lab-grown pancreatic islet cells, including beta cells, that originate from a line of pluripotent stem cells.
