Researchers refine guidelines for pediatric brain injuries
(University of Washington Health Sciences/UW Medicine) There are no guideliInnes on whether a noninvasive method of measuring carbon dioxide from patients' exhalations, known as end-tidal capnography, is as effective as drawing blood through a child's artery.This study published in JAMA found that measuring the carbon dioxide level through an artery is still the most accurate diagnostic for pediatric brain trauma.

Children with mild asthma can use inhalers as needed
(Washington University School of Medicine) A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis supports evidence that children with mild asthma can effectively manage the condition by using their two inhalers -- one a steroid and the other a bronchodilator -- when symptoms occur. This is in contrast to the traditional method of using the steroid daily, regardless of symptoms, and the bronchodilator when symptoms occur. The as-needed use of both inhalers is just as effective for mild asthma as the traditional protocol, according to the investigators.

Researcher discovers gene mutation that contributes to addiction
(University of Oklahoma) A researcher at the OU College of Medicine, William R. Lovallo, Ph.D., recently published one of the field's few studies focused on how a person's genes contribute to addiction. Lovallo's research showed that a tiny genetic mutation can put people at higher risk for alcohol or drug addiction.

Physiological mechanisms leading to enterovirus opening revealed
(University of Jyväskylä - Jyväskylän yliopisto) Enteroviruses are one of the most common human pathogens leading to high number of acute and chronic infections worldwide. The physiological events leading to successful enterovirus infection are still poorly understood. Researchers at the Nanoscience Center at the University of Jyväskylä and at the University of Helsinki have found significant new information concerning the role of Albumin and ions in host cell vesicles that promote genome release and efficient infection. The research was published in the Journal of Virology in August.

ALS drug grant to spur drug discovery at Northwestern
(Northwestern University) Two Northwestern University scientists have received a $3.1 million NIH grant to investigate drug therapies for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS.) One of the scientists, Richard Silverman, is the inventor of Lyrica. Initial results with his new compounds are quite promising. They may have broader applications for other neurodegenerative diseases.

Wearable sensors detect what's in your sweat
(University of California - Berkeley) A team of scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, is developing wearable skin sensors that can detect what's in your sweat. In a new paper, the team describes a sensor design that can be rapidly manufactured using a "roll-to-roll" processing technique that essentially prints the sensors onto a sheet of plastic like words on a newspaper. The sensors can provide real-time measurements of sweat rate, and electrolytes and metabolites in sweat.

UMN researcher decodes the brain to help patients with mental illnesses
(University of Minnesota Medical School) Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the United States experience mental illness in a given year. Severe mental illnesses cause the brain to have trouble dealing with cognitively effortful states, like focusing attention over long periods of time, discriminating between two things that are difficult to tell apart, and responding quickly to information that is coming in fast.

Does the judicial system give justice to assaulted EMS first responders?
(Drexel University) Violence toward first responders is widespread and can face a felony charge in Pennsylvania, yet new research shows that victims often feel they do not receive legal justice. Now a study of victim cases and interviews with district attorneys in Philadelphia offers three solutions to help educate first responders and legal professionals to participate constructively in the legal system intended to prevent incidents from occurring and deliver justice.
