False-negative COVID-19 test results may lead to false sense of security
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

A new article calls attention to the risk posed by overreliance on COVID-19 testing to make clinical and public health decisions. The sensitivity of reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing and overall test performance characteristics have not been reported clearly or consistently in medical literature, the article says.

Guidance on treating COVID-19 patients with signs of acute heart attack
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

Much remains unknown about COVID-19, but many studies already have indicated that people with cardiovascular disease are at greater risk of COVID-19. There also have been reports of ST-segment elevation (STE), a signal of obstructive coronary artery disease, in patients with COVID-19 who after invasive coronary angiography show no sign of the disease.

Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

Not quite planets and not quite stars, brown dwarfs are cosmic in-betweeners. Learning about their atmospheres could help us understand giant planets around other stars.

New study shows how oxygen transfer is altered in diseased lung tissue
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has developed tiny sensors that measure oxygen transport in bovine lung tissue.

Strongest predictors of menhaden growth in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

A damaged fertilized egg sends signal that helps mother live a longer healthy life
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

There is plenty of scientific evidence that the health of a mother can impact the health of her child. Now a new study flips that relationship around: Researchers have discovered the health of the fertilized embryo determines the functional health of the mother, which has implications for healthy aging, stress resilience and suppression of protein damage. Essentially, a bad egg does good by protecting the mother from cellular stress, ensuring she lives longer and is healthy enough to produce the next generation.

Long-living tropical trees play outsized role in carbon storage
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

A group of trees that grow fast, live long lives and reproduce slowly account for the bulk of the biomass -- and carbon storage -- in some tropical rainforests, a team of scientists says. The finding that these trees, called long-lived pioneers, play a much larger role in carbon storage than previously thought may have implications in efforts to preserve forests as a strategy to fight climate change.

Making sense of scents: 3D videos reveal how the nose detects odor combinations
Posted on Thursday April 09, 2020

Every moment of the day we are surrounded by smells. Odors can bring back memories, or quickly warn us that food has gone bad. But how does our brain identify so many different odors? And how easily can we untangle the ingredients of a mixture of odors? Scientists have taken an important step toward answering these questions, and the secret lies inside the nose.
