    DNR orders guide treatment decisions

    Patients with a do-not-resuscitate (DNR)-Comfort-Care order receive fewer aggressive treatment interventions after initiating the DNR order, suggesting that clear indication of medical care requirements for DNR patients ensures appropriate treatment.

    Mind control in zombie ants

    Parasitic Ophiocordyceps fungi, who turn their ant hosts into ‘zombies’, can infect and kill multiple ant species but only manipulate behaviour in their specific host species; this could be related to the metabolites they secrete.

    No molecular link between measles and IBD

    Homology exists between measles antigens and intestinal proteins, but antibody reactivity is not significantly greater in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients than healthy controls, providing further evidence against a link between measles and IBD.
