Researchers Create Model of Anorexia Nervosa Using Stem Cells

An international research team, led by scientists at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, has created the first cellular model of anorexia nervosa (AN), reprogramming induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from adolescent females with the eating disorder.

The Academy for Eating Disorders Expresses Concern About the Impact of Proposed ACA Replacement Bill on Access to Treatment for Eating Disorders

The Academy for Eating Disorders (AED) adds its voice to the serious concerns raised by the American Psychiatric Association, the American Medical Association, and other major health care organizations about the proposed replacement for the Affordable Care Act. The proposed replacement bill threatens to aggravate the already difficult environment for obtaining care for individuals with eating disorders and other mental illnesses.

Most Atrial Fibrillation Patients Don’t Get Preventive Drug Before Stroke

More than 80 percent of stroke patients with a history of atrial fibrillation either received not enough or no anticoagulation therapy prior to having a stroke, despite the drugs’ proven record of reducing stroke risk, according to a Duke Clinical Research Institute study.

Scientists Predict Crime Knowledge States in the Human Brain

Scientists and lawyers speak different languages, but there is common ground. Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists working in a multi-institutional team with legal authorities have discovered that brain imaging can determine whether someone is acting in a state of knowledge about a crime.
