Researchers use MRI to predict recovery after spinal cord injury

...Since the severity of spinal cord compression is a predictor of outcome after SCI, this study suggests that MRI may predict which patients would benefit the most from decompressive surgery," Dr. Fehlings said. He added that MRI should be performed on all patients with acute SCI whenever feasible as it prov...

"The personality trait can be an important predictor of how individuals will respond to predictable and unpredictable changes in their environment and how well they cope with these changes", explains Bart Kempenaers. "If we want to understand the ecological and evolutionary importance of variation in p...

Sleep quantity affects morning testosterone levels in older men

"The results of the study raise the possibility that older men who obtain less actual sleep during the night have lower blood testosterone levels in the morning," said Penev. "Although t...

Gene signature assesses breast cancer outcomes

...und that the 70-gene signature was a more accurate predictor of disease outcomes than assessment with the Adjuvant Online! software. Moreover, statistical analysis indicated that most of the prognostic information provided by traditional risk classifiers was included in the gene classifier. The authors write...

Newly identified biomarker detects and regulates spread of brain tumors

Low-grade tumors are slow growing and show little abnormality, whereas high-grade tumors are highly abnormal and grow and spread quickly, making treatment more difficult. Patients with highly malignant astrocytomas typically have ...

'Signature' of chromosome instability predicts cancer outcomes

...y itself. This 25-gene signature was a significant predictor of clinical outcomes in a variety of cancers (breast, lung, medulloblastoma, glioma, mesothelioma and lymphoma). It could also differentiate between primary tumors and tumor metastases, and, in grade 1 and grade 2 breast cancer, distinguished the mor...

Viral genetic differences are possible key to HIV dementia

... neurotoxic variant of HIV, could we use that as a predictor of HIV dementia?" He says that such knowledge could also help care providers make "guided therapeutic decisions ?for example, the detection of particular viral genotypes may lead physicians to select for antiretroviral regimens that cross the blood-...

Alaska seal pup diet may hold key to decline of population

...Instead, the starting weight has been the critical predictor of whether the seal would add body mass and body fat, Polasek explained. Seals weighing less than 26 kilos (about 12 pounds) showed little progress in gaining weight and even lost blubber, regardless of which diet they were on. On the other hand, th...

MicroRNA gene that regulates lifespan found by Yale scientists

...r studying the genetics of aging, and an excellent predictor of genes that also control mammalian aging. To test their functions, they made mutants in both of these genes. Animals with a loss-of-function mutation in lin-4 had a lifespan that was significantly shorter than normal, suggesting that lin-4 prevent...

Past illegal blood donation in China linked to hepatitis C virus infection

...ling blood or plasma was the strongest independent predictor for HCV-positive findings. Receiving a blood transfusion was also independently associated with HCV; villagers who received blood transfusion had about 8 times the risk of HCV infection than those who had no history of blood transfusion. Among the 5...
