Delivering medicines in psychiatry the transdermal way: application to autism

by Paul Whiteley in Questioning Answers

The real iron manPharmaceutical technology, and specifically the various research strategies looking at the way that medicines are delivered to the body, is probably not a topic high on most people's list of interests. This area is generally not 'sexy' research insofar as producing headlines about almost miracle interventions for condition X or label Y. Instead, we take for granted that the tablet or capsule we have been given has been formulated and tested or that the nicotine patch that you ma........ Read more »

Sharing genomic data to advance research

It can be used to identify disease-specific mutations and those associated with more complex conditions. However, as discussed previously on this blog, understanding the effect of a single mutation can be difficult without comparison between healthy and disease patient samples. Sharing patient data accumulated by private and academic........ Read more »

Surprising or contradictory health news stories encourage readers to be sceptical about science

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

The Kill or Cure website monitors the Daily Mail's attempt to "classify every inanimate object into those that cause cancer and those that prevent it". Like many other media outlets, the Mail is drawn to health news that is contradictory and/or surprising and a perusal of the Kill or Cure website shows that the paper has frequently reported that the same items, such as aspirin or beer, both cause and prevent cancer.Now a study published recently in Science Communication examines t........

Surgeon’s Learning Curve Endangers Living Kidney Donor

by Cristy at Living Donor 101 in Living Donors Are People Too

This recently published paper followed one surgeon as he performed 60 living donor nephrectomies. The first 30 were hand-assisted laparoscopic and the second 30 were pure laparoscopic. Here’s how his patients fared (emphasis mine):   Thirteen patients (43.3%) in the [hand-assisted] group experienced a total of 17 intraoperative errors, and 11 (36.7%) in the [pure …

Study uncovers dramatic cross-cultural differences in babies' sitting ability

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

Paediatricians' offices are often adorned with a developmental milestone chart for infants, and they always show the same "normal" age-typical progression, from sitting to crawling to walking. But these expectations (e.g. 25 per cent of infants achieve independent sitting by 5.5 months) are rather misleading because they're derived solely from research on Western babies conducted back in the 1930s and 1940s. A new study, published recently in the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, aimed to br........ Read more »
