Assessment of comatose patients through telemedicine efforts shown to be reliable
Reliable assessment of comatose patients in intensive care units is critical to the patients' care. Providers must recognize clinical status changes quickly to undertake proper interventions. But does the provider need to be in the same room as the patient, or can robotic telemedicine be used successfully to complete the assessment? According to a research study conducted at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona, published in Telemedicine and e-Health, the answer is yes. (2017-01-26)

Black holes are formed as a result of the most powerful explosions in the universe
Scientists from the Lomonosov Moscow State University have managed to register for the first time polarization of intrinsic optical radiation of gamma-ray bursts -- the most powerful and very short bursts in the Universe, which last for several tens of seconds. Under intrinsic radiation of gamma-ray bursts one understands optical radiation at the instant of explosion. Such observations pose an extremely complicated science-and-technology task since the explosion lasts less than several minutes. (2017-08-01)

Molecular motor myosin VI moves 'hand over hand,' researchers say
In the human body, hundreds of different types of biomolecular motors help carry out such essential tasks as muscle contraction, moving chromosomes during cell division, and reloading nerve cells so they can repeatedly fire. How these little proteins perform their duties is becoming clearer to scientists using an extremely sensitive measurement technique. (2004-08-31)

External brain stimulation temporarily improves motor symptoms in people with Parkinson's
People with Parkinson's disease tend to slow down and decrease the intensity of their movements even though many retain the ability to move quickly and forcefully. Now, scientists report evidence that the slowdown likely arises from the brain's 'cost/benefit analysis,' which gets skewed by the loss of dopamine in people with PD. In addition, their small study demonstrated that noninvasive electrical stimulation of the brain corrected temporarily improved some patients' motor symptoms. (2015-09-09)

Radiation therapy cuts low risk of recurrence in half for patients with good risk breast cancer
A subset of patients with low-risk breast cancer is highly unlikely to see cancer return following breast conservation surgery but can lower that risk even further with radiation therapy, finds a new long-term clinical trial report. These 12-year follow-up data from the only prospective, randomized trial to compare recurrence outcomes after treatment for low-risk ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be presented today at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
