Targeting sitting time, rather than physical activity, is the most effective way to reduce prolonged sitting, according to the first comprehensive review of strategies designed to reduce sitting time.
New research suggests that young infants benefit from hearing words repeated by their parents. With this knowledge, parents may make conscious communication choices that could pay off in their babies' toddler years and beyond.
As high schools across the country continue to reduce physical education, recess, and athletic programs, a new study shows that regular exercise significantly reduces both suicidal thoughts and attempts among students who are bullied.
Results from the first phase 3 HIV study to enroll only women show improved safety and efficacy of the drug Stribild over multi-pill antiretroviral drug regimens.
Researchers show that the introduction of both pneumococcal conjugate vaccines and rotavirus vaccines led to the rapid and dramatic reduction in hospital burden of both winter diarrhea and respiratory infections within <5 years post introduction of the vaccines.
Research comparing clinical outcomes between patients receiving nafcillin and cefazolin for treatment of methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) bacteremia shows that overall treatment failure rate among patients receiving cefazolin was no worse than nafcillin, and significantly fewer adverse effects were documented for those receiving cefazolin.
Researchers have succeeded in developing a vaginal silicone ring that delivers molecules that act on both HIV and herpes virus.
Scientists have uncovered the mechanisms which embryonic stem cells employ to inhibit virus expression. The groundbreaking discovery could potentially advance stem cell therapeutics and diagnostics.
New research reveals the potential benefits of harnessing the energy created from salinity gradients, with impacts across climate change, fossil fuel reliance and the global desalination industry.
Researchers report that a patient's microbial diversity, even before they start cancer treatment, can be linked to risk of infection during induction chemotherapy.
Researchers distilled thousands of pages of government and industry reports and hundreds of news stories, focusing on the run-up to the Fukushima disaster and found that a cascade of errors led to the accident.
Computer science researchers have created an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can solve SAT geometry questions as well as the average American 11th-grade student, a breakthrough in AI research.
Astronomers have found evidence for a new intermediate-mass black hole about 5,000 times the mass of the sun. The discovery adds one more candidate to the list of potential medium-sized black holes, while strengthening the case that these objects do exist.
For the first time, researchers have developed an inexpensive, secure method to prevent mass credit card fraud using existing magnetic card readers. The novel technique -- called SafePay -- works by transforming disposable credit card information to electrical current and driving a magnetic card chip to simulate the behavior of a physical magnetic card.
More than half of people invited to take a new bowel cancer screening test didn’t take up the opportunity – even though it could stop them developing or dying from the disease, according to a report.
Scientists know that most cancer cells use glucose to fuel their uncontrolled growth and now an international team of researchers has identified a protein which if switched off could stop the disease in its tracks.
A new study describes the contribution of water to the three-dimensional structure of proteins that allows them performing their biological function.
Caregiving for an Alzheimer's patient is especially burdensome for spousal and family caregivers who at the time of their near and dear one's Alzheimer's diagnosis suffer from depressive symptoms, according to a study. The study analyzed the psychological stress of family caregivers during a three-year period following the Alzheimer's diagnosis.
Researchers have created a synthetic material out of 1 billion tiny magnets. Astonishingly, it now appears that the magnetic properties of this so-called metamaterial change with the temperature, so that it can take on different states; just like water has a gaseous, liquid and a solid state. This material made of nanomagnets might well be refined for electronic applications of the future - such as for more efficient information transfer. A synthetic material - created from 1 billion nanomagnets - assumes different aggregate states depending on the temperature: the so-called metamaterial exhibits phase transitions, much like those between steam, water and ice.
Nearly a quarter of teenagers in England and Wales who have had an abortion have been pregnant before, according to new research.
