Treatable Condition Could Be Mistaken for Schizophrenia or Bipolar Disorder

Researchers at Houston Methodist believe that a significant number of people diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder may actually have a treatable immune system condition. A new research study could have a significant impact on the millions diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, including many homeless.

Video Game Improves Doctors’ Recognition and Triage of Severe Trauma Patients

Playing an adventure video game featuring a fictitious, young emergency physician treating severe trauma patients was better than text-based learning at priming real doctors to quickly recognize the patients who needed higher levels of care, according to a new trial. The game tackles the annual problem of 30,000 preventable deaths occurring after injury, in part because severely injured patients aren't promptly transferred to trauma centers.

Synchrony of Waves

Feature_SynchronyofWaves_WuMin.jpg

Researchers from the Mechanobiology Institute, Singapore at the National University of Singapore, report that endocytosis, which was previously thought to be a random process, actually occurs in a coordinated manner through collective dynamics. The work, led by Assistant Professor Wu Min, showed how a major endocytic pathway mediated by the protein clathrin, was found to commence with periodic traveling waves of clathrin, which were coupled temporally and spatially to downstream cortical actin waves. Clathrin endocytic waves were identified here as the upstream initiator of cortical actin waves.

Nanotexturing Creates Bacteria-Killing Spikes on Stainless Steel Surfaces

stainless-steel007.jpg

By using an electrochemical etching process on a common stainless steel alloy, researchers have created a nanotextured surface that kills bacteria while not harming mammalian cells. If additional research supports early test results, the process might be used to attack microbial contamination on implantable medical devices and on food processing equipment made with the metal.

Estudio De Mayo Clinic Descubre en Emoticones Un Medio Esperanzador Para Seguir La Calidad De Vida De Los Pacientes OncolóGicos

En los resultados presentados ante la Sociedad Americana de Hematología, los investigadores de Mayo Clinic descubrieron que los emoticones, en lugar de las tradicionales escalas de emociones, sirven para evaluar la calidad de vida física, emocional y general de los pacientes.
