Age Matters Behind the Wheel – but Not How You Might Expect

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A UCLA study explored the relationship between new drivers' skills to age, gender and playing organized sports or video games. The results suggest all novice drivers should undergo mandatory training, not just teenagers. Age: Among males, the older the student, the worse his driving skills score.

Study Shows Need for Early Support Among People with Uveal Melanoma

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers found that nearly all people diagnosed with uveal melanoma had a number of unmet psychological and health information needs, particularly during the first three months after their diagnoses. The study is the first prospective, longitudinal approach to examine supportive care needs among patients with this disease, and suggested more acute needs among people with uveal melanoma than people with other cancers.

Antidepressant Response Within Hours? Experts Weigh Evidence on Ketamine as Fast-Acting Treatment for Depression in Harvard Review of Psychiatry

Wolters Kluwer Health: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

Recent studies suggest that ketamine, a widely used anesthetic agent, could offer a wholly new approach to treating severe depression—producing an antidepressant response in hours rather than weeks. Two reviews of recent evidence on ketamine and related drugs for treating depression appear in the Harvard Review of Psychiatry, published by Wolters Kluwer.

Descriptive Phrases for How Often Food Should Be Eaten Helps Preschoolers Better Understand Healthy Eating

Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior

Approximately one in four preschoolers in the US are overweight or obese, and poor nutrition in early childhood has enduring consequences to children’s cognitive functioning. Preschool, therefore, is a critical period for children to begin to make their own dietary decisions to develop life-long healthy eating habits. A new study published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior found that preschoolers who learned how to classify food as healthy or unhealthy were more likely to say they would choose healthy food as a snack.

Updated Data Confirms a Durable 75 Percent Overall Response Rate, by Blinded Independent Review, of Larotrectinib in Adults and Children with Tumors Harboring TRK Fusions

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Larotrectinib, a highly selective TRK kinase inhibitor, shows rapid, potent, and durable efficacy in both adult and pediatric patients with solid tumors that harbor TRK fusions, regardless of tumor type or patient age, according to results from three clinical trials published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The landmark data support the foundation of precision oncology by creating a treatment option for a genetically defined cancer while continuing to validate the concept that comprehensive molecular profiling should be strongly considered in people of all ages with advanced solid tumors.
