Evidence from a meta-analysis suggests that high energy intake and low levels of dietary calcium and magnesium are associated with pre-eclampsia, indicating that strategies to prevent hypertensive disorders of pregnancy should focus on diet.
Epigenetics may explain how sex hormones in women could influence risk of asthma after puberty.
The 1918 influenza pandemic initially entered India via Bombay (now Mumbai) and over time, and with distance from the city, showed a pattern of speed deceleration and decreased overall virulence but with a prolonged epidemic wave.
The publicity surrounding actress Angelina Jolie’s decision to undergo genetic testing for the BRCA1 gene and subsequently a risk reducing mastectomy has resulted in an increase of referrals to clinics in the UK.
Peter Byass comments on new estimates for the global burden of liver cirrhosis mortality, highlighting the challenges of this analysis and discussing the ways in which the data could be used for risk-reduction strategies.
Liver cirrhosis caused over 1 million deaths in 2010, with the highest mortality rates in Egypt and Moldova, suggesting that cirrhosis is a significant global health problem and measures to reduce risk factors should be reinforced in specific countries.
Susy Yusung and Jonathan Braun comment on a modeling study suggesting no molecular mimicry between measles antigens and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), highlighting that the findings support the safety of pediatric MMR vaccines.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients undergoing outpatient protease-inhibitor-based triple therapy can find the treatment physically, emotionally and socially draining, and need systematic support from specially trained professionals in symptom management.

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.
