Children who develop Type 2 diabetes are at high risk to develop heart, kidney and eye problems faster and at a higher rate than people who acquire Type 2 diabetes as adults, a new study has found. "Once these kids have Type 2 diabetes, they seem to be at very high risk for early complications when compared to adults," Jane Lynch, M.D., professor of pediatric endocrinology in the School of ...
Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has said that despite being back in the pursuit of the Ashes, he is viewing cricket in a new light following his daughter's battle with cancer. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, although the Ashes journey is the greatest adventure for an Australian cricketer and normally fills his mind for most of the time, however, Haddin had even considered retirement ...
A new study has found that maintaining a heart healthy lifestyle may also help protect chronic kidney disease patients from developing kidney failure and early death. The findings suggest that patients with kidney disease should be encouraged to improve their heart health. Paul Muntner, PhD (University of Alabama at Birmingham) and his colleagues used the American Heart Association's recently ...
A known difficulty in fighting influenza (flu) is the ability of the flu viruses to mutate and thus evade various medications that were previously found to be effective. Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have shown recently that another, more promising, approach is to focus on improving drugs that boost the body's natural flu killer system. Emergence of new influenza strains, ...
Doctors have been able to successfully treat a 2.5-year-old boy who had suffered from cardiac arrest and brain damage, putting him in a vegetative state, using his own cord blood containing stem cells. The symptoms improved significantly; over the following months, the child learned to speak simple sentences and to move. "Our findings, along with those from a Korean study, dispel the long-held ...
It Came From Outer Space [DVD]
The "it" in It Came From Outer Space is a meteor-shaped spaceship that crashes in the desert outside a small community in Arizona. Actually, the spaceship crashes twice on-screen, once within the first few seconds of the film to give it its explosive title card, and then again within the narrative proper. Having been shot originally in polarized 3-D, it's no small surprise that the filmmak ... ...
Using your tablet or smartphone before bed can suppress quality sleep, thus putting you at risk for health problems, a new study suggests. If you want to improve your sleep, researchers advise shutting off your tablet well before bedtime. Nighttime exposure to LED rays illuminating from tablets, computers, TVs, and smartphones can disrupt your body's natural rhythms, and raise your risk for ...
University of East Anglia scientists have made a breakthrough in breast cancer research which shows how some enzymes released by cancerous cells could have a protective function. Their research revealed that an enzyme called MMP-8 (matrix metalloproteinase-8) could be acting as a locator to the immune system, which then becomes activated to attack tumours. It was originally thought that the ...
Scientists have proved that the H7N9 influenza virus is efficiently transmitted when animals are in close contact-defined in the study as touching, coughing and the exchange of bodily fluids. David Kelvin, PhD, a senior scientist at the Toronto General Research Institute and Professor at the University of Toronto, noted that the study was designed to give them clues about the transmission of ...
Scientists at the National Institutes of Health report have discovered that a small molecule released in the spinal cord of a mouse triggers a process that is later experienced in the brain as the sensation of itch. The small molecule, called natriuretic polypeptide b (Nppb), streams ahead and selectively plugs into a specific nerve cell in the spinal cord, which sends the signal onward through ...
Scientists have come up with a non-invasive and more effective way to detect oral cancer, says a study. The imaging technique, which is detailed in the Journal of Biomedical Optics, has been developed by Kristen Maitland, assistant professor at the department of biomedical engineering of Texas Aamp;M University. The non-invasive system combines two separate technologies -- confocal microscopy ...
We must define the nature and scope of this struggle, or else it will define us. Neither I, nor any President can promise the total defeat of terror. What we must do is dismantle networks that pose a direct danger.

Cincinnati SunCincinnati Sun – City of Cincinnati News
The Cincinnati Sun is essentially a local Cincinnati newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Cincinnati, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Cincinnati, Ohio, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Cincinnati Sun.
University of Cincinnati researchers have identified a number of biomarkers for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which could help with earlier diagnosis and intervention in those who have not yet shown symptoms.
This finding was made possible by using the Department of Defense Serum Repository (DoDSR).
The DoDSR is a biological repository operated by the U.S. Department of Defense and contains over 50 million human serum specimens, collected primarily from applicants to and members of the U.S. uniformed services.
This discovery, the first of its kind and led by UC's Bruce Yacyshyn, MD, is being presented via podium presentation by staff from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Digestive Disease Week 2013, being held May 18-21 in Orlando, Fla.
"With collaborators from Walter Reed, we were able to identify all of the active duty service men and women who developed IBD and then used the repository to go back and look at various biomarkers to see what each person had in common," said Yacyshyn, a professor of medicine at the UC College of Medicine and UC Health gastroenterologist.
IBD is a group of inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. The main types of IBD are Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis; inflammatory bowel diseases are considered autoimmune diseases in which the body's own immune system attacks elements of the digestive system. ...
