Neonatal pig hearts can heal from heart attack

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
Researchers have discovered that the hearts of newborn piglets have one remarkable ability. They can almost completely heal themselves after experimental heart attacks. This regenerative capacity is short-lived -- disappearing by day three after birth, and this is the first time the ability regrow heart muscle has been shown in large mammals, the researchers report in the journal Circulation. This research has impactful clinical implications, says UAB researcher Jianyi 'Jay' Zhang, M.D., Ph.D.

Long-term efficacy of AAV5-based gene therapy to treat day blind sheep with achromatopsia

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
A study of a large animal model of achromatopsia caused by a mutation in the CNGA3 gene that was treated with a single injection of CNGA3 gene therapy delivered using an AAV5 vector revealed findings reported long-term follow-up findings that show promise for the efficacy and safety of this therapeutic approach.

Better statistical methods to understand gene interactions leading to cancer development

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
Research led by Hui-Yi Lin, PhD, Associate Professor of Biostatistics at LSU Health New Orleans School of Public Health, has developed another novel statistical method for evaluating gene-to-gene interactions associated with cancer and other complex diseases.

Mizzou program significantly reduces delay in autism diagnosis

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
A new study on the effectiveness of ECHO Autism shows that the program significantly reduces diagnostic wait times for young children at highest risk for autism and saved families an average of 172.7 miles in travel for diagnosis.

Play-doh helps plant research

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
You know that smell of fresh cut grass? It's a cry for help plants use when under attack.

Optimizing airport flight patterns take a toll on human health

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
Health costs associated with noise from changing flight patterns over populated urban landscapes far outweigh the benefits of reduced flight times, according to a new study. The researchers used flights from LaGuardia airport that have historically flown over Flushing Meadows and the U.S. Tennis Center in Queens - known as the TNNIS route -- as a case study to explore the trade-offs between more efficient flight routes and suffering on the ground.

Tropical Depression Leepi was nearing landfall in southern South Korea on Aug. 15, when NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite flew overhead.

The origin of off-taste in onions

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
Chopping onions is usually associated with watery and stinging eyes. But after the onions are diced and the tears are dried, the vegetable pieces can sometimes develop an unpleasant bitter taste. Now, one group reports in ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that they have identified previously unknown compounds causing this off-taste.

Magnetic antiparticles offer new horizons for information technologies

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
Nanosized magnetic particles called skyrmions are considered highly promising candidates for new data storage and information technologies. Now, physicists have revealed new behaviour involving the antiparticle equivalent of skyrmions in a ferromagnetic material. The researchers demonstrated their findings using advanced computer simulations that can accurately model magnetic properties of nanometre-thick materials. The results are published in Nature Electronics.

Our perceived birth status can affect our adult relationships

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
Birth status and knowledge about it play a role not only in parents' but also children's lives -- affecting their attachment and mental representation into adulthood.

Protein droplets keep neurons at the ready and immune system in balance

EurekAlert! - Mar, 08/14/2018 - 22:00
