Around 700 child deaths that occur in England each year might be avoided by reducing deprivation, finds a new NHS England-funded report published today [13 May]. The University of Bristol National Child Mortality Database (NCMD)-led analysis identified a clear association between the risk of death and level of deprivation for children in England, for all categories of death except cancer.
Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) affects between one and two of every 10,000 new-born babies. This genetic disease leads to the formation of benign tumours which can massively impair the proper functioning of vital organs such as the kidneys, the liver and the brain.
The chance of us finding brook lamprey or brown trout in our brooks and rivers again in a few years is particularly small. An international study led by KU Leuven shows that we are only taking baby steps with the policy currently in force.
A large-scale randomised trial of annual screening for ovarian cancer, led by UCL researchers, did not succeed in reducing deaths from the disease, despite one of the screening methods tested detecting cancers earlier.
New research has identified various flaws in the security of Wi-Fi connections. Attackers could take advantages of these weaknesses to get access to private data. New security updates were announced yesterday.
The advance, researchers say, is like the discovery of the Rosetta stone and could eventually lead to new treatments for diseases The advance, researchers say, is like the discovery of the Rosetta stone and could eventually lead to new treatments for diseases UCLA life scientists have identified six "words" that specific immune cells use to call up immune defense genes — an important step toward understanding the language the body uses to marshal responses to threats.
