Research in the emergency room helps predict organ failure in critically injured patients
Testing blood samples within the first two hours of injury could help predict which critically injured patients are more likely to develop multiple organ failure, according to an early study led by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The finding that there is a specific immune response to trauma shortly after injury could also help with the development of new therapies.

Novel therapeutic approach against genetic forms of Schizophrenia
Research led by the University of Glasgow has made a breakthrough in developing a possible future treatment of schizophrenia and related psychiatric conditions. Studies currently show that people with a hereditary form of schizophrenia, or a subset of the general schizophrenic population, are deficient in the brain protein DISC1, an important multi-function ‘scaffolding' protein vital to key brain functions.

Bacteria passed between generations benefit you more than others
When bacteria are passed vertically, straight from mother to offspring, they tend to be much better for their hosts than if they are transmitted via the environment (horizontally). e.g. a light-producing bacteria that helps the squid defend against predators. Image credit: C. Frazee, and contributed by M.

Concerns over side effects of statins stopping stroke survivors taking medication
Concerns over side effects of statins stopping stroke survivors taking medication
Negative media coverage of the side effects associated with taking statins, and patients' own experiences of taking the drugs, are among the reasons cited by stroke survivors and their carers for stopping taking potentially life-saving drugs, according to research published today. These findings have highlighted the need for an open, honest dialogue between patients and/or their carers, and healthcare professionals Anna De Simoni Individuals who have had a stroke are at risk of a second stroke, which carries a greater risk of disability and death than first time strokes.

Studies begin on first Huntington’s disease sheep imported to UK
Scientists at the University of Cambridge will this week begin studying sheep that have been genetically modified to carry the mutation that causes Huntington's disease. The sheep are believed to be the first Merinos to have been imported into the UK from Australia for about 50 years. Even though we've known for decades now exactly which genetic mutation causes Huntington's disease, we're arguably still no nearer a cure - the best we can do is manage the symptoms Jenny Morton Huntington's disease affects more than 6,700 people in the UK.
