Evidence from a meta-analysis suggests that there are sex differences in risk factors for mortality after myocardial infarction (MI), providing information that should inform prediction models to improve risk assessment for men and women.
A combined analysis of immunohistochemical and genomic data for ovarian cancer reveals that PTEN loss is a common and prognostic driver event
Thyroid hormone levels are elevated in children conceived by in vitro fertilization (IVF) with fresh embryo transfer (ET) compared with frozen ET, suggesting that frozen ET could reduce the risks of thyroid dysfunction in children born after IVF.
New research suggests that microbial communities living on an individual’s pubic hairs could be used as a ‘fingerprint’ to trace their involvement in sexual assault cases.
Longshanks mice, a line of laboratory mice specially bred for longer hind-limbs, showed a substantial increase in limb length over just 14 generations despite restraints caused by genetic correlations with body mass, which did not increase.
Malaria continues to present significant health burden in Africa, but there is still controversy in how to estimate this; here Robert Snow argues that statistical measures should be used to assess the burden and inform control strategies.
Jamie's Ministry of Food, Australia results in improvements in participants' food and cooking attitudes and knowledge, food purchasing behaviors and social interactions within the home environment, sustained six months after the program.
Sequencing of three crocodilian genomes reveals that they host a wide range of ancient endogenous retroviruses, including a new class (ERV4) common to crocodilians and turtles.
A new analysis, utilising new phylogenetically diverse sequences produced by the Avian Genome Consortium, shows that diversification of beta keratin genes has been crucial in the evolution of feathers and the resulting adaptation of birds into multiple niches.
Evidence from a systematic review suggests clinical practice guidelines on diagnosing and treating hyponatremia offer inconsistent recommendations and are of varying methodological quality, indicating the need for greater consistency.
