More women - especially younger women - are testing positive for marijuana use during pregnancy in Northern California, according to a new study. The research letter, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, analysed the results of urine tests administered during standard prenatal care of 280,000 women enrolled in the Kaiser Permanente Northern California health-care system.
New research has identified a mechanism in the body that appears to act as a kind of internal bathroom scale, registering body weight and telling the brain to reduce or increase food intake as necessary.
A University of Hawai'i Cancer Center researcher has identified how some cancer cells are made to move during metastasis. The research provides a better understanding of how cancer spreads and may create new opportunities for cancer drug development.
How the brain is able to store memories over long periods of time has been a persistent mystery to neuroscientists. In a new study, researchers from the Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity (CINPLA) at the University of Oslo show that long-lived extracellular matrix molecules called perineuronal nets are essential for distant memories.
Analysts and investors think Perjeta’s end-of-the-year indication may not be as lucrative as they once hoped. The FDA green-lighted the drug in tandem with giant Herceptin and chemo for HER2-positive, post-surgery breast cancer patients with a high risk of recurrence.

A 10-month-old boy born without an immune system has been confined to his sanitized home his entire life and only leaves for doctor's visits. Sebastian Romero was diagnosed with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) at two weeks old, a rare genetic disorder known as 'bubble boy' disease that left him with no infection-fighting cells.
About half of all cases of deafness are caused by genetic defects. So it’s no surprise that the emerging gene-editing technique CRISPR-Cas9 is being examined closely for its potential to prevent hearing loss in people who inherit those genes. Scientists at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute are among those looking to deploy CRISPR in genetic deafness—and they have their first evidence that their technique may hold promise.
New US research has found that being married may have a protective effect for patients who have suspected or confirmed heart disease, with those who are unmarried, divorced, or widowed all at a higher risk of death than married patients.
