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 Fibromyalgia: Pain out of control (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Feeling like we have a degree of control makes us tolerate pain better. In the case of fibromyalgia, however, this simply doesn't work. A study provides clues as to why.
Published Antidepressants used for chronic pain on the rise, but are they effective? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research has found some antidepressants may be effective in treating certain chronic pain conditions, but others lack convincing evidence on their effectiveness.
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 Study analyzes brain changes associated with juvenile fibromyalgia (via sciencedaily.com)
Analyzing the brain changes that occur in the first stages of juvenile fibromyalgia could help to better understand the pathophysiology of this syndrome.
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 Abnormal thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy may increase the risk of preschool boys’ behavioral problems (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy may predict preschool boys' emotional and behavioral problems, according to a new study.
Published One in five future thyroid cancers linked to excess weight (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The prevalence of obesity has doubled in Australia in the last two decades. As a result, overweight and obesity will likely be associated with 10,000 thyroid cancers in the next decade.
Published Discovery raises possibility of new medication for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have for the first time demonstrated it's possible to use a synthetic thyroid hormone to regulate a gene implicated in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.
Published 'Where does it hurt?' predicts chronic pain outcomes, study shows (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Pain distribution as reported on a body map, on its own, can be used to assign patients to distinct subgroups that are associated with differences in pain intensity, pain quality, pain impact and clinically-relevant three-month outcomes, according to a new study.
Published Thyroid cancer now diagnosed with machine learning-powered photoacoustic/ultrasound imaging (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A research team performs machine learning-powered photoacoustic/ultrasound imaging for thyroid cancer classification.
Published Air pollution during pregnancy may affect growth of newborn babies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Maternal exposure to air pollution during pregnancy has often been linked to adverse effects on the health of the newborn. However, there are very few studies on the subject. A study has just concluded that the stages most sensitive to air pollution are the early and late months of pregnancy.
Published Fibromyalgia likely the result of autoimmune problems (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research has shown that many of the symptoms in fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) are caused by antibodies that increase the activity of pain-sensing nerves throughout the body. The results show that fibromyalgia is a disease of the immune system, rather than the currently held view that it originates in the brain.
