A new study reports a potential new treatment for seizures which often occur in children with genetic metabolic disorders and people with liver failure.
Food neophobia, the extreme hesitation to try new foods, is associated with increased risk of developing chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Administering a cocktail of amino acids to mice models of TBI, researchers improved sleep disturbances caused by the brain injuries.
The current national death rate among those infected with coronavirus is 1.3%. The comparable rate of death for seasonal flu is 0.1%. The study estimates that if the same number of people are infected with COVID-19 by the end of the year as are infected with flu, roughly 33.5 million people in 20018-19, almost 500,000 people will die as a result of coronavirus infection. However, COVID-19 is more infectious than the seasonal flu. Current conservative estimates suggest 20% of the US population will be infected by the end of 2020, leading to a possible 1.2 million deaths.
Researchers administered antibiotics to rats for two weeks, depleting their gut microbiome. They then administered oxycodone. Compared to rats given only the opioid, those given the antibiotics had profound changes in how their brains responded to the pain killers.

Scientists studying a rare genetic disorder have identified a molecular pathway that may play a role in schizophrenia, according to new research. The findings may one day guide researchers to new treatment options for people with schizophrenia - a devastating disease that affects approximately 1 percent of the world's population.
Women, especially minority women, from states with more restrictive reproductive rights have a greater risk of delivering a low-weight baby and face more health disparities than women who reside in states with fewer restrictions on reproductive rights.
Vaping e-cigarettes modulates the oral microbiome and increases the abundance of pathobionts. The aerosols in vaping products alter the host response, prompting gum inflammation and making epithelial cells in the mouth susceptible to infection.
