In a new study, researchers at The Ohio State University estimate algal blooms at two Ohio lakes cost Ohio homeowners $152 million in lost property value over six years. Meanwhile, a related study suggests that algae is driving anglers away from Lake Erie, causing fishing license sales to drop at least 10 percent every time a bloom reaches a moderate level of health risk.

Multicolor MRIs Could Aid Disease Detection

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have developed a method that could make magnetic resonance imaging—MRI—multicolor. Current MRI techniques rely on a single contrast agent injected into a patient’s veins to vivify images. The new method uses two at once, which could allow doctors to map multiple characteristics of a patient’s internal organs in a single MRI. The strategy could serve as a research tool and even aid disease diagnosis.

Researchers report encouraging preclinical results as they pursue elusive therapies that can repair scarred and poorly functioning heart tissues after cardiac injury. Scientists from the Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute inhibited a protein that helps regulate the heart’s response to adrenaline, alleviating the disease processes in mouse models and human cardiac cells. Their data publishes Aug. 22 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

When drug users go online for the first time to buy opioids, they aren’t looking for the widest selection or the best prices for their illicit purchases, a new study suggests. Researchers found that first-time drug buyers who visited one marketplace on the “darknet” cared only about finding trustworthy sellers.

How a Chemo Drug Can Help Cancer Spread From the Breast to the Lungs

The very same treatment that thwarts breast cancer has a dark side – it can fuel the spread of the disease to the lungs. Researchers at The Ohio State University found clues to why it happens, opening up the possibility of interfering with the medication’s downsides while preserving its cancer-fighting properties in breast tissue.
