Human balance is known to decline with age, and an international team of researchers has provided new evidence around whether this particular ability can serve as an indicator for risk of disease and death. The study involving more than 1,700 subjects found a disproportionate rate of death among those unable to complete a 10-second balance test, with the authors suggesting such an examination cou
A pair of new studies have homed in on key biomarkers that could help identify, at the point of initial infection, those most at risk of developing long COVID. The studies suggest a combination of immune biomarkers and acute symptoms can be used to predict a person’s likelihood of long COVID.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Coronavirus (COVID-19), Virus, Chronic, T
A new study has proposed that a simple retina scan could indicate whether a person is at risk of early death. The research found the greater the gap between a person’s chronological age and retinal age the higher their risk of dying.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Eye, Diagnostic devices, Test, Deaths, Health, New Atlas Audio
As people get older, the intervertebral discs in their spine tend to deteriorate, some of which end up being surgically replaced with implants. A new patient-specific spinal model, however, could help determine how successful such surgery will be.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Florida Atlantic University, Spinal, Implant, Simulations, 3D Printing
Earlier detection of dementia could open up far more effective ways to treat and manage the condition, and one place scientists are increasingly turning to for warning signs is the blood. A new study has further broadened the possibilities in this area, pinpointing a set of molecules the authors describe as a "harbinger" of the condition two to five years ahead of onset, and may even provide new
Advances in artificial intelligence promise to open up all sorts of possibilities when it comes to health care, and analyzing medical images for signs of trouble is already proving to be a great strength of the technology. Scientists at Cambridge University have demonstrated a new type of machine learning algorithm they say can detect structural changes in the brain that are indicative of early d
Why do some people benefit from some types of exercise more than others? Scientists investigating this question have demonstrated how profiles of certain proteins in the blood can predict a person's "trainability." The work not only sheds new light on the way the human body responds to physical activity, but paves the way for personalized exercise regimes that could prove far more effective for i
A robust proof-of-concept study has found it may be possible to predict a person’s risk of dying more than a decade in advance by analyzing their gut bacteria composition. The research points to a novel microbial signature that was associated with an increased risk of mortality across a 15-year follow-up period.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Gut Bacteria, Microbi
Impressive new research led by a team from the Stanford University School of Medicine has discovered a set of biomarkers that can predict when a pregnant woman will go into labor several weeks in advance. It's hoped the breakthrough findings can be translated into a predictive blood test within the next few years.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Pregnancy, Baby, Th
With psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy on the cusp of broad clinical approval in the United States, there is a new pressing need to understand exactly which patients may be best suited to this novel treatment and which patients are most at risk of adverse reactions.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Genetics, Psychology, Psychedelic Medicine, Features is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
