High Levels of PFOA Found in Mid-Ohio River Valley Residents From 1991 to 2013

New research from the University of Cincinnati (UC) reveals that residents of the Mid-Ohio River Valley had higher than normal levels of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) based on blood samples collected over a 22-year span. The exposure source was likely from drinking water contaminated by industrial discharges upriver. This is the first study of PFOA serum concentrations in U.S. residents in the 1990s.

Experimental Therapy for Immune Diseases Hits Achilles Heel of Activated T cells

JordanPNAS_ActivatedTCellsEXT.jpg

Immune diseases like multiple sclerosis and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis unleash destructive waves of inflammation on the body, causing death or a lifetime of illness and physical impairment. With safe and effective treatments in short supply, scientists report in PNAS Early Edition (Proceeding of the National Academy of Science) discovery of an experimental treatment that targets an Achilles heel of activated immune cells – killing them off and stopping autoimmune damage.

DAWN Trial Results Demonstrate Dramatic Reduction in Disability From Stroke Up to 24 Hours of Onset

Results from the DAWN stroke trial provide compelling evidence that selected patients suffering a major ischemic stroke recovered significantly better with mechanical retrieval of the blood clot with medical therapy compared with medical therapy alone when initiated past the current guidelines of within 6 hours and up to 24 hours of the stroke.

Year-Round Flu Vaccinations Promote Healthier Infants in Subtropics

Vaccinating pregnant mothers year-round against flu in the resource-challenged region of subtropical Nepal reduced infant flu virus infection rates by an average of 30 percent, increased birth weights by 15 percent and resulted in babies having less influenza, according to a study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases. An international research team says expanding year-round flu vaccinations during pregnancy would also benefit children in other tropical and subtropical parts of the world.

Children Following Deported Parents Face Educational Roadblocks

Children who go to Mexico to live with a deported parent can encounter a host of struggles, including social isolation and difficulty in school because they can’t read and write in Spanish. The children, who may have never been to Mexico, experience a difficult transition and often are held back in their new schools.
