World AIDS Day: Educational Breakthrough

Friday, November 30th, 2007

Tomorrow is World AIDS Day and instead of “barraging you with [another set of] statistics, gruesome photos, or heart-wrenching stories” (quote credit to Mr. Casnocaha), I want to alert you to something we prefer here - solutions, problem solving, technology, and creative thinking. Piya Sorcar, a doctoral student in Stanford’s Learning, Sciences & Technology Design program has used her considerable skills to figure out how to reach the minds of children in devleoping countries when it comes to HIV/AIDS education.

More Gray Matter in Autistic Children’s Brains

Friday, November 30th, 2007

(Ivanhoe Newswire) – More gray matter in the brains of children with autism could help scientists better understand the disease.

New research from North Shore-Long Island Jewish Men’s health System in Bethpage, New York used a new imaging technique to study autistic children. It found more gray matter in the areas of the brain that control social processing and learning by observation.

“Our findings suggest that the inability of autistic children to relate to people and life situations in an ordinary way may be the result of an abnormally functioning mirror neuron system,” lead author Manzar Ashtari, Ph.D., Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, was quoted as saying.

Blocking a Gene could Reverse Aging Skin

Friday, November 30th, 2007

(Ivanhoe Newswire) – Blocking just one gene could lead to new anti-aging treatments for the skin.

Researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine found blocking a single gene, called NF-êB, can reverse aging in the skin of mammals. They used a transgenic mouse model to test the effect of blocking the gene in the basal layer of the mouse epidermis. Two weeks later, both the global gene expression profile and the tissue characteristics of the aged skin were rejuvenated to that of a young animal.

“Here we show that aging in mouse skin can be reversed by blocking a single gene… These findings suggest that aging is not just a result of wear and tear, but is also the consequence of a continually active genetic program that might be blocked for improving human (more…)

New MRSA, New Threat?

Friday, November 30th, 2007

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — While the hospital “superbugs” like MRSA may have been widely identified, new strains of the virus are spreading within communities and may pose a greater Men’s health threat.

According to researchers, lesser-known strains of the community associated MRSA virus are more powerful and easily spread between people. They say these new strains have been found in people with little to no reason to have MRSA, meaning they have not been in a hospital recently and are not looking after people with the infection.

New Mammography Technique Better at Detecting Cancer

Friday, November 30th, 2007

(Ivanhoe Newswire) – A new breast imaging technique could significantly reduce the number of women who have to go back for more tests after a routine screening mammography.

A new report from Emory University shows stereoscopic digital mammography reduced false-positive findings by 49 percent compared to standard digital mammography and reduced missed lesions by 40 percent.

1,093 patients at increased risk for breast cancer have enrolled in the trial as of July, 2007. Each had a standard digital mammography screening and a stereoscopic digital exam which were read by different radiologists.

High Blood Pressure May Worsen Alzheimer’s

Friday, November 30th, 2007

(Ivanhoe Newswire) – Not only does high blood pressure raise your risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or aneurysm, it can also worsen the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

A new study from the University of Pittsburgh finds hypertension reduces blood flow in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

“This study demonstrates that good vascular Men’s health is also good for the brain,” study co-author Oscar Lopez, M.D., University of Pittsburgh, was quoted as saying. “Even in people with Alzheimer’s disease, it is important to detect and aggressively treat hypertension and also to focus on disease prevention.”
