New combination treatment targets pre-leukemia stem cells

Your body's blood cells are manufactured by hematopoietic stem cells in bone marrow. But just as regular, mature cells can become cancerous, so too can stem cells. When hematopoietic stem cells mutate in specific ways, the result can be damaged stem cells that create a type of pre-leukemic condition known as myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS. On its own, MDS is a chronic condition that results in symptoms like anemia. In early stages, MDS can usually be managed with supportive care. However, as the disease progresses, about one in three cases of high-risk MDS will evolve into acute myeloid leukemia (AML),...

Here's why you dread brainstorming at work

The nature of work is changing. In today's fast changing and interconnected world many companies operate in highly competitive international environments. Technological advances can happen almost on the spot and information can flow through a globalised network in a split second. And while this can set the pace for the development of many firms, it can also contribute to increasingly complex problems that organisations must face. Many companies, such as Google or Pixar, adapt to this stark reality by emphasising the role of job-related creativity in sustaining organisational viability. What's more, corporations are increasingly interested in workgroups and teams to...

The video games that improve kids' social skills

Video games that are specifically designed to test and improve children's social and emotional skills could enable parents and teachers to spot issues and help children improve their behaviour and performance at school as well as in later life. Imagine racing through a virtual labyrinth against an alien and losing. Given the chance to rerun the race – which you don't know is stacked against you – or quit, how many times would you try again? The answer for most children is four or five, according to Dr Daniel Peña, a clinical psychologist at Alava Reyes, a psychology centre in...

Death doulas can fill care gaps at the end of life

With continual advances in modern medicine, we're enjoying longer lives. As the population ages, and particularly as many people are living longer with cancers and chronic diseases, end-of-life care is adapting and changing. People who are approaching the end of their lives will usually spend some or most of their time at , requiring care and support to do so. Family members might not always be available to provide this care. When they are, the process can be rewarding, but it can also be challenging and complex, often leading to a for the carer. Gaps in our are starting to...

Can't exercise? A hot bath may help improve inflammation, metabolism, study suggests

Hot water treatment may help improve inflammation and blood sugar (glucose) levels in people who are unable to exercise, according to a new study. The findings are published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology. Physical stress such as exercise can cause the short-term elevation of inflammatory markers. After exercise, the level of an inflammatory chemical (IL-6) rises. In a process called the inflammatory response, this activates the release of anti-inflammatory substances to combat unhealthily high levels of inflammation, known as chronic low grade inflammation. Recent research has shown that raising body temperature augments the , which has...

New research aims to help improve uptake of hepatitis C testing

New research published in Scientific Reports shows persisting fears about HIV infection may impact testing uptake for the hepatitis C Virus (HCV). HCV infects the liver. If left untreated, it can cause serious and potentially life-threatening damage to the liver over many years. Today, with the help of modern treatments it's usually possible to cure the , and most people with it will have a normal life expectancy. An estimated 1 percent of the world population is chronically infected with HCV. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has set the global target of eliminating HCV infection as a major by 2030....

Adults on the autism spectrum prescribed mental health drugs without diagnoses

Adults on the autism spectrum are being prescribed mental health drugs in instances where there is limited supporting evidence to do so. This was one of the findings of a UNSW-led study that looked at the use of psychotropic medication – or medication for – by adults on the . The research, which used data collected by The Cooperative Research Centre for Living with Autism (Autism CRC)'s Australian Longitudinal Study of Adults with Autism (ALSAA), found that 14 per cent of mental health medications were being taken by adults on the without a relevant diagnosis. First author on the study,...
