Type 2 diabetes diagnosis in youth leads to increased health complicat... - Eureka Alert NEW!
(NIH/National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases) Teens and young adults with type 2 diabetes develop kidney, nerve, and eye diseases -- as well as some risk factors for heart disease -- more often than their peers with type 1 diabetes in the years shortly after diagnosis. The results are the latest findings of the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study, published Feb. 28 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

(University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus) A new report published in the Feb. 28 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association points to a significantly higher burden of diabetes-related complications in adolescents and young adults with type 2 diabetes compared to type 1 diabetes, with greater health complications in minority youth.
NeuroVision announces participation in landmark Alzheimer's A4 study - Eureka Alert NEW!
(Johns Hopkins Medicine) In a rigorous study of tumor tissue collected from 125 patients with aggressive brain cancers, researchers at Johns Hopkins say they have found no evidence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and conclude that a link between the two diseases, as claimed by earlier reports, likely does not exist.
New report assesses VA's airborne hazards and open burn pit registry - Eureka Alert NEW!
(Public Relations Pacific LLC) NeuroVision Imaging LLC ('NeuroVision') today announced its participation in a new substudy with investigators at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine (UC San Diego) and the University of Southern California (USC) to be part of the landmark Anti-Amyloid Treatment in Asymptomatic Alzheimer's (or 'A4') clinical trial. The purpose of the A4 study is to test whether a new investigational treatment that may reduce beta-amyloid accumulation in the brain can also slow memory loss caused by Alzheimer's disease.
(National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine) Inherent features of registries that rely on voluntary participation and self-reported information make them fundamentally unsuitable for determining whether emissions from military burn pits in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations in Southwest Asia caused health problems in service members who were exposed to them, says a new congressionally mandated report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Mammography trends show improved cancer detection, more biopsies - Science Daily 1 hour ago
Planets are thought to form in the disks of dust and gas found around young stars. But astronomers have struggled to assemble a complete theory of their origin that explains how the initial dust develops into planetary systems. A team now think they have the answer, with their simulations showing the formation of 'dust traps' where pebble-sized fragments collect and stick together, to grow into the building blocks of planets.
The shift from film to digital technology appears to have improved cancer detection rates for diagnostic mammography, but also has increased the abnormal interpretation rate, which may lead to more women undergoing biopsies for benign conditions, according to a new study.

Netflix CEO: co-workers were affected by Trump travel ban - AP NEW!
I knew Yooka-Laylee was inspired by Banjo-Kazooie, but until I played it last week Iâ€™d underestimated the extent. Itâ€™s uncanny.You know how some people are convinced the Berenstain Bears used to be known as the Berenstein Bears, except we all fell into a parallel universe and somehow the past has changed? Or that Oscar Mayer is spelled Oscar Meyer? The â€śMandela Effect,â€ť the internet calls this phenomenon.Well, in some parallel universe â€śBanjo-Kazooie,â€ť the Nintendo 64 classic about a bear and the bird who rides in his backpack, was actually Yooka-Laylee, the very similar story of a chameleon and his bat-friend. And then I guess in 2015 someone from our universe fell into that other world, stole a Yooka-Laylee cartridge, and brought it back here.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Chinese phone maker Meizu might be better known in the U.S. for its patent fights with Apple than the Android phones it makes, but the company is slowly building a name for itself. And while it didnâ€™t unveil a new phone at Mobile World Congress this year, it did bring something far more interesting: a charging breakthrough.Like other Android handsets, Meizuâ€™s phones have featured its proprietary mCharge system for years. The most recent version promised to fill up about a quarter of the battery in just 10 minutes, but version 4.0 blows away those estimates (and our expectations). According to Meizu, the 11V/5A charging connectorÂ â€śboasts a maximum power of 55W for an accelerated full charge time of just 20 minutes,â€ť making it the fastest system around.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
