This randomized clinical trial of 71 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) tested a wearable behavioral intervention deployed on Google Glass and worn by children at home to reinforce facial engagement and emotion recognition to improve social behavior.
Traditional print books may have an edge over e-books when it comes to quality time shared between parents and their children, a new study suggests.
Dr. Andrew Dauber, a pediatric endocrinologist, guides two poster presentations and an oral abstract at ENDO 2019. This research forms a case study about using genomics and electronic health records to screen and diagnose severe growth disorders. In some cases, this has led to further testing -- WES, microarray samples -- and to the discovery of novel variants for height disorders.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals present in household dust promote the development of fat cells in a cell model and could contribute to increased growth in children relative to their age, according to research to be presented Monday, March 25, at ENDO 2019, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in New Orleans, La.
Teens who sit for hours watching TV, using the computer or playing video games while eating unhealthy snacks are at increased risk for a group of risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, according to research to be presented Monday, March 25, at ENDO 2019, the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society, in New Orleans, La.
New research suggests a hormone released from fat tissue is critical in the development of obesity-related asthma and may be a target of future treatments for the disease. The findings will be presented Saturday, March 23 at ENDO 2019, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in New Orleans, La.
Among first-time users of a new insulin pump that automatically delivers insulin to people with type 1 diabetes, nearly one-fifth stopped using the device, primarily because of difficulties meeting the technical demands system, researchers say. Results of a real-world study of the hybrid closed loop insulin pump (Medtronic MiniMed 670G) will be presented Sunday at the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in New Orleans, La.
Scientists have harnessed powerful data analysis tools and three-dimensional studies of genomic geography to implicate new risk genes for osteoporosis, the chronic bone-weakening condition that affects millions of people. Knowing the causative genes may later open the door to more effective treatments.
In a first, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and the Magee-Womens Research Institute have reported in a non-human primate model that immature testicular tissue can be cryopreserved, and later be used to restore fertility to the same animal.
Pitt scientists find a viral anti-vaccination Facebook campaign wasn't 'all about autism,' but instead centered on four distinct themes.
