Published Exposure to dioxins can worsen thyroid function (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Exposure to dioxins can negatively impact thyroid function, according to a study presented Thursday at ENDO 2023, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in Chicago, Ill.
Published Boosting the body's anti-viral immune response may eliminate aging cells (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Aging cells express a protein that is produced by human cytomegalovirus and is targeted by certain immune cells in the body. Harnessing the immune response to this protein could have multiple health benefits during aging.
Published Scientists see anti-aging potential in an invasive weed (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The fruit of the cocklebur plant, which grows worldwide and is often considered a noxious weed, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components that could make it useful as a skin protectant, according to new research.
Published Simple laser treatments may help prevent nonmelanoma skin cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a study of patients with a history of facial keratinocyte carcinoma, 20.9% of those treated with nonablative fractional lasers experienced a subsequent keratinocyte carcinoma, compared with 40.4% of patients who did not receive laser treatment.
Published In cells, UV-emitting nail polish dryers damage DNA and cause mutations (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The ultraviolet nail polish drying devices used to cure gel manicures may pose more of a public health concern than previously thought. Researchers studied these ultraviolet (UV) light-emitting devices, and found that their use leads to cell death and cancer-causing mutations in human cells.
Published Scars mended using transplanted hair follicles (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers have found that hair follicle transplants can promote scar rejuvenation by altering their architecture and genetic makeup.
Published Researchers develop painless tattoos that can be self-administered (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have developed low-cost, painless, and bloodless tattoos that can be self-administered and have many applications, from medical alerts to tracking neutered animals to cosmetics.
Published Researchers produce nanodiamonds capable of delivering medicinal and cosmetic remedies through the skin (via sciencedaily.com)
A novel approach provides an innovative solution to overcoming two major challenges in delivering medicinal and cosmetic remedies through the skin. Combining techniques in nanotechnology and optics, researchers produced tiny (nanometric) diamond particles so small that they are capable of penetrating skin to deliver these remedies. Next, they created a safe, laser-based optical method that quantifies nanodiamond penetration into the various layers of the skin and determines their location and concentration within body tissue in a non-invasive manner -- eliminating the need for a biopsy.
Published Microneedling beats chemical peels for acne scar treatment (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Chemical peels are a common treatment for acne scars, but a new study finds that microneedling is significantly more effective for patients with dark skin.
Published Researchers examine link between pesticides and thyroid cancer risk in Central California area (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In single pollutant models and within a 20-year period, 10 out of 29 reviewed pesticides were associated with thyroid cancer, including several of the most widely used ones in the U.S. These included paraquat dichloride, glyphosate and oxyfluorfen.
Published Pralsetinib achieves tissue-agnostic benefits for patients with RET gene fusions (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The targeted therapy pralsetinib was well-tolerated and demonstrated high response rates in patients with RET gene fusions, regardless of tumor type.
Published People with low BMI aren't more active, they are just less hungry and 'run hotter' (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
To date most research on obesity has focused on studying those with a high body mass index (BMI), but a research group is now taking a different approach. The scientists looked at individuals with a very low BMI. Their findings reveal that these individuals are actually considerably less active than people with a BMI in the normal range, contrary to speculation that they have a metabolism that makes them naturally more active. Additionally, they eat less food than those with a normal BMI.
Published Thyroid problems linked to increased risk of dementia (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Older people with hypothyroidism, also called underactive thyroid, may be at increased risk of developing dementia, according to a new study. The risk of developing dementia was even higher for people whose thyroid condition required thyroid hormone replacement medication.
Published Chemical risk assessment not up to par, researchers say (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The current system of chemical risk assessment is inadequate and underestimates levels of flame retardants and other pollutants needed to cause harmful health effects, according to a recent analysis.
Published Scientists gain ground on rare congenital neurological disorder (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Two recent discoveries may help lead to new ways to treat patients with Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome (AHDS), a brain development disorder that causes severe intellectual disability and problems with movement.
Published Researchers adapt technology made for astronomical observations to biomedical imaging (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have captured images of multiple radionuclides in mice using astronomy technology.
Published Exposure to phthalates -- the 'everywhere chemical' -- may increase children's cancer risk (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research has linked phthalates, commonly called the 'everywhere chemical,' to higher incidence of specific childhood cancers.
Published Those with facial scars rate their own appearance more critically than surgeons and strangers (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Patients who undergo facial surgery think their surgical scars look worse than surgeons and independent observers do, according to a new study.
Published Newly discovered effect of toxic goiter on brain (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Toxic goiter affects the brain more than was previously known, a new study shows, and involves volume changes occurring in central parts of the brain. These findings are described as a key advance for a vulnerable group of patients.
Published New hair dyes avoid allergic reactions (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have developed a range of permanent hair dyes that avoid the allergenic properties of traditional formulations.
