A new study finds that up to 10% of people with headaches also have facial pain. The study is published in the Aug. 21, 2019, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
A team of Tufts University engineers has developed a transistor made from linen thread, enabling them to create electronic devices made entirely of thin threads that could be woven into fabric, worn on the skin, or even (theoretically) implanted surgically for diagnostic monitoring. The fully flexible electronic devices could enable a wide range of applications that conform to different shapes and allow free movement without compromising function.
A small but concerning number of women are exposed to a commonly used MRI contrast agent early in their pregnancy, likely before many of them are aware that they're pregnant, according to a new study. The results support adherence to effective pregnancy screening measures to help reduce inadvertent exposures to these contrast agents during early pregnancy.
Inhaling a vaporized liquid solution through an e-cigarette, otherwise known as vaping, immediately impacts vascular function even when the solution does not include nicotine, according to the results of a new study.
Monitoring and tracking biological threats or epidemics require the ability to carry out tests in the field during austere situations. Expensive laboratory equipment is often unavailable in these settings, so inexpensive point-of-care technology is needed. Ordinary paper is often used, since it's cheap, portable and widely available. However, paper poses some problems that hinder its usefulness. In this week's Biointerphases, investigators report a technique that greatly improves the performance of paper-based point-of-care technologies.
A researcher at The University of Texas at Arlington has found that blood vessels within bone marrow may progressively convert into bone with advancing age.
Using ultrasonic tweezers, live imaging and a micro-mechanical substrate, NYU Tandon researchers found energy patterns in cellular allostasis that could predict the presence of disease.
The liver plays a vital role as a filter in the body. But what happens when it malfunctions? Researchers (Switzerland) teamed up to perform a detailed analysis of hepatic encephalopathy. The scientists were able to observe for the first time in a mouse model that a dysfunction of the liver provokes cerebral molecular disturbances in two weeks, even though no physical symptoms are apparent. Moreover, several molecules are concerned, including two that were previously unknown.
Interregional differences in somatic genetic landscape diversify prognosis in glioblastoma.
Increasing medications for blood pressure when discharging older patients from the hospital may pose a greater risk of falls, fainting and acute kidney injury that outweighs the potential benefits, according to a study by researchers at UC San Francisco and the affiliated San Francisco VA Health Care System.
