Outcomes of non-operatively treated elbow ulnar in professional baseball players

Posted: 13 Jul 2019 07:39 AM PDT

Professional baseball players with a low-grade elbow injury that occurs on the humeral side of the elbow have a better chance of returning to throw and returning to play, and a lower risk of ulnar collateral ligament surgery than players who suffered more severe injuries on the ulnar side of the elbow.

Over-conditioning kills: Non-traumatic fatalities in football is preventable

Posted: 13 Jul 2019 07:39 AM PDT

Most non-traumatic fatalities among high school and college football athletes do not occur while playing the game of football, but rather during conditioning sessions which are often associated with overexertion or punishment drills required by coaches and team staff, according to new research.

Coping strategy therapy for family dementia carers works long-term

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 05:06 PM PDT

A program of therapy and coping strategies for people who care for family members with dementia successfully improves the carers' mental health for at least a six-year follow-up, finds a new study.

Salt intake in China among highest in the world for the past 4 decades

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 05:06 PM PDT

Salt intake in China is confirmed to be among the highest in the world, with adults over the past four decades consistently consuming on average above 10g of salt a day, which is more than twice the recommended limit, according to new research.

Pairing targeted drugs for breast and lung cancer could overcome treatment resistance

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 05:06 PM PDT

Targeted drugs for breast and lung cancer could be used together to overcome resistance to treatment in several different tumour types, a new study shows. Scientists discovered that when the breast cancer drug palbociclib was combined with the lung cancer drug crizotinib, the two-drug combination was significantly more effective against cancer cells in the laboratory than either drug used on its own.

Sheaths drive powerful new artificial muscles

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 11:13 AM PDT

Over the last 15 years, researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas and their international colleagues have invented several types of strong, powerful artificial muscles using materials ranging from high-tech carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to ordinary fishing line. In a new study published July 12, 2019 in the journal Science, the researchers describe their latest advance, called sheath-run artificial muscles, or SRAMs.

Patterns in DNA reveal hundreds of unknown protein pairings

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 11:13 AM PDT

Researchers have now found a new way to extract useful information out of sequenced DNA. By cataloging subtle evolutionary signatures shared between pairs of genes in bacteria, the team discovered hundreds of previously unknown protein interactions. This method is now being applied to the human genome to seek new insights into how our proteins interact.

New vaccine strategy boosts T-cell therapy

Super-charging a treatment for leukemia also makes it effective on solid tumors.

New CRISPR platform expands RNA editing capabilities

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 11:13 AM PDT

The new system, dubbed RESCUE, allows RNA edits to be made that were not previously possible.

Area of brain linked to spatial awareness and planning also plays role in decision making

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 11:13 AM PDT

Neuroscientists show that the posterior parietal cortex (PPC), an area of the brain often associated with planning movements and spatial awareness, also plays a crucial role in making decisions about images in the field of view.

For malnourished children, new therapeutic food boosts gut microbes, healthy development

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 11:13 AM PDT

A new type of therapeutic food, specifically designed to repair the gut microbiomes of malnourished children, is superior to standard therapy in an initial clinical trial conducted in Bangladesh. Researchers have undertaken a new approach for addressing the pressing global health problem of childhood malnutrition. Their approach focuses on selectively boosting key growth-promoting gut microbes using ingredients present in affordable, culturally acceptable foods.

High-risk pregnancy: The interferon effect

Posted: 11 Jul 2019 11:13 AM PDT

Scientists have identified a new cellular mechanism that alters placental development, potentially causing serious complications during pregnancy. The mechanism is linked with the production of interferon, a molecule produced in response to infection, especially viral infection.
