The mechanisms of aging increase susceptibility of the distal lung epithelium to influenza infection and delay the emergence progenitor cells during the lung repair process contributing to the severity of the infection in the elderly.
Using transcriptomic and other genomic data it is possible to predict a subject’s reduction in cholesterol levels in response to statins
Hans-Christoph Diener and colleagues discuss screening methods for atrial fibrillation (AF) and call for immediate research into self-administered AF screening techniques using mobile technology which may aid the detection of pulse irregularities.
Women who have an abortion experience less intimate partner violence (IPV) than women who are denied abortions, indicating that policies to restrict abortion provision may put both women and children at increased risk of violence.
A new method for studying cancer heterogeneity and subclonality through identification of epigenetic loci affected by the clonal evolution
Aromatic turmerone increased the number of neural stem cells in cell culture and adult rat brains in vivo, suggesting it would make a promising drug candidate for neural regeneration.
Peter Robinson discusses approaches to sharing genomic data without infringing patient confidentiality, such as ClinVar, DECIPHER and a recent federated structure.
Against the background of relentlessly spreading infection and a receding prospect of an end to the epidemic, Thomas Hoenen and Heinz Feldmann argue the case for (and against) the use of experimental therapies and vaccines
Improving current peer review processes is a topic of much debate; here Philip Stahel and Ernest Moore highlight why these changes are necessary and discuss how innovations in peer review can ensure the quality of published research, while reducing burden on reviewers.
Variation of fasting plasma glucose is a predictor of ischemic stroke in type 2 diabetic patients, indicating that preventative strategies should aim to minimize glucose variation to prevent stroke in these patients.

BioMed Central news
Biomaterials Research has now fully launched with BioMed Central and has published its first articles
We are pleased to announce that Biomaterials Research has now fully launched with BioMed Central and has published its first articles. Supported by the Korea Research Foundation, it was founded in 1996 as the official journal of the Korean Society for Biomaterials. An electronic archive of back content can be found here.
Biomaterials Research covers the interdisciplinary fields of biomaterials research, including novel biomaterials, cutting-edge technologies of biomaterials synthesis and fabrication, and biomedical applications in clinics and industry. Topics include, but are not limited, to functional biomaterials; drug and gene delivery systems; tissue engineering; nanomedicine and bio-imaging.
Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology is now accepting submissions.
Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology (NPEP) will provide a venue for researchers and clinicians interested in the applications of electrophysiological techniques for probing basic electrophysiological aberrations in neuropsychiatric disorders.
Led by Editor-in-Chief Dr Nash Boutros (University of Missouri-Kansas City), NPEP will span basic neuroscience theory, technology and methodology, as well as clinical research and practice, with a focus on moving electrophysiology laboratory findings from the bench to bedside. The journal is supported by an expert Editorial Board, and is the latest addition to our portfolio of psychiatry journals.
Cerebellum & Ataxias has now fully launched
We are delighted to announce that Cerebellum & Ataxias has now fully launched with BioMed Central and published its first articles. It is the sister journal to The Cerebellum (published by Springer), and is devoted to cerebellar research and cerebellar disorders, including scientific reports and clinical cases of the numerous forms of ataxias.
Neurovascular Imaging is now accepting submissions
Neurovascular Imaging will provide a venue for researchers and clinicians interested in neurovascular imaging techniques in health and disease, allowing for the comparison and juxtaposition of different imaging modalities, and research into the use of imaging techniques in the study, diagnosis and long-term clinical assessment of neurovascular disorders and their pathological mechanisms.
