This study, published this week in eLife, provides new evidence that hormonal levels during the first few weeks following birth can have a long-term impact on lifespan, mortality risks and health status in old age.
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have developed a one-step affinity chromatography method for protein purification that they claim is up to 100 times better than existing techniques at achieving high-yield, high-purity, high-activity purification (HHH) of even the most challenging of proteins.
Why do some K-12 students — and schools — excel while others struggle? Socioeconomics, race and even nutrition can play a role, but UAB Honors College students are finding no easy answers for education inequality. Discover how the topic inspired them to partner with kids in Greensboro to help bridge the divide.
“The Life’s Simple 7, an approach used by the American Heart Association to monitor [CV] health, can also be used to monitor high [BP] risk in African Americans, a major risk factor for [CVD],” John N. Booth III, MS, a PhD student in the department of epidemiology at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, said in a press release. “We found that even small improvements in [CV] health can reduce risk for developing high [BP].”
Ronald M. Lazar is the new director of the Brain Institute and the Evelyn F. McKnight Endowed Chair for Learning and Memory in Aging in the Department of Neurology.
“The data suggest these untrained employees may be relying on untrained peers in the event of an emergency, leaving employees with a false sense of security that someone in the workplace will be qualified and able to respond, when that is clearly not the case,” Michael Kurz, MD, co-chair of the AHA’s Systems of Care Subcommittee and associate professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine in the department of emergency medicine.
Co-medication with anti-emetics may reduce the incidence of MTX-induced nausea and behavioral therapies may reduce the occurrence of anticipatory nausea, Sonja Falvey, MD, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and colleagues reported in a review published in Pediatric Rheumatology.
It is not a good time to be a pain patient, says Mark Bailey, D.O., Ph.D., a pain specialist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. It's not a good time to be a pain doctor, or a pharmacist either, he says. The nation is dealing with an opioid epidemic, and the field of pain management has gotten very complicated.
Nitesh Saxena, Ph.D., associate professor in the UAB College of Arts and Sciences Department of Computer and Information Sciences, and Ph.D. student Ajaya Neupane and former master's student Md Lutfor Rahman, found that a person who paused a video game and logged into a bank account while wearing an EEG headset was at risk for having their passwords or other sensitive data stolen by a malicious software program.
Researchers suggest that brainwave-sensing headsets, also known as EEG or electroencephalograph headsets, need better security after a study reveals hackers could guess a user’s passwords by monitoring their brainwaves.
