Induction heating can completely change the energy budget of an exoplanet and even melt its interior. In a study published by Nature Astronomy an international team led by the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences with participation of the University of Vienna explains how magma oceans can form under the surface of exoplanets as a result of induction heating.

Study Shows How Nerves Drive Prostate Cancer

In a study in today’s issue of Science, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore Medicine, report that certain nerves sustain prostate cancer growth by triggering a switch that causes tumor vessels to proliferate. Their earlier research—which first implicated nerves in fueling prostate cancer—has prompted Montefiore-Einstein to conduct a pilot study testing whether beta blockers (commonly used for treating hypertension) can kill cancer cells in tumors of men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Non-Opioid Treatment Substantially More Effective Than Opioids for Migraine Headache in Emergency Department, New Research Finds

New data from researchers at Montefiore Health System shows that patients seeking care for migraine in the emergency department experience better pain relief from the non-opioid treatment intravenous (IV) prochlorperazine along with diphenhydramine, compared to the frequently used opioid treatment IV hydromorphone.
