Paul S. Viviano, President and CEO, Urges Americans to Reject the Proposed Senate Health Care Bill and Support Medicaid for Children and Families

ANDERSON_PAVILION_072711.jpg

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) opposes any changes to Medicaid funding that harm children and their families. The Senate's version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), called the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), risks the health care coverage of millions of American children and families.

Women and their physicians are largely uneducated when it comes to females and heart disease, putting women’s health and lives at greater risk, a new study out today shows. The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, shows that 45 percent of U.S. women are not aware that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women.

Study Sheds Light on How Bacterial Organelles Assemble

Scientists at Berkeley Lab and Michigan State University are providing the clearest view yet of an intact bacterial microcompartment, revealing at atomic-level resolution the structure and assembly of the organelle's protein shell. This work can help provide important information for research in bioenergy, pathogenesis, and biotechnology.

In experiments at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, scientists were able to see the first step of a process that protects a DNA building block called thymine from sun damage: When it’s hit with ultraviolet light, a single electron jumps into a slightly higher orbit around the nucleus of a single oxygen atom.

New Biomarker Assay Detects Neuroblastoma with Greater Sensitivity

Investigators at The Saban Research Institute of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles have developed and tested a new biomarker assay for quantifying disease and detecting the presence of neuroblastoma even when standard evaluations yield negative results for the disease.
