CHOP-led research study identifies key target in treatment-resistant hemophilia A
Philadelphia, April 15, 2021–Researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have identified a key target that may be responsible for treatment failure in about 30% of patients with hemophilia A. The target, known as B cell activating factor (BAFF), appears to promote antibodies against and inhibitors of the missing blood clotting factor that is given to these patients to control their…

Most young people eager for COVID-19 vaccine, poll shows
As older teens and young adults become eligible for COVID-19 vaccination across the country, and younger teens await their turn, new survey data suggest a strong readiness that has grown since fall. But just as with older generations, a shrinking but still sizable minority of people age 14 to 24 say they’re not willing to get vaccinated, or that their decision will depend on safety. That makes it…

Want to be robust at 40-plus? Meeting minimum exercise guidelines won't cut it
Want to be robust at 40-plus? Meeting minimum exercise guidelines won’t cut it
Young adults must step up their exercise routines to reduce their chances of developing high blood pressure or hypertension – a condition that may lead to heart attack and stroke, as well as dementia in later life. Current guidelines indicate that adults should have a minimum of two-and-a-half hours of moderate intensity exercise each week, but a new study led by UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals…

Children's Hospital Los Angeles receives $6.1M to study treatment of youth anxiety
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles receives $6.1M to study treatment of youth anxiety
Anxiety disorders affect one in five youth. Generally, a child is treated with either cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or medication. But despite the high prevalence of anxiety, there is no study-based evidence to compare the success rate of medication versus CBT. Some success has been demonstrated with each treatment type but not all patients respond sufficiently to a given therapy. If a child…

ER visits for suicidal behavior declined during the first 8 months of pandemic, U-M study shows
ER visits for suicidal behavior declined during the first 8 months of pandemic, U-M study shows
While people may expect suicide rates to rise during a worldwide crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, a University of Michigan study suggests the onset of the pandemic and state of emergency executive orders likely did not increase suicide-related behavior in the early months of the outbreak. The report, led by U-M researchers Rachel Bergmans and Peter Larson, found that emergency room visits…

Australian researchers find new way to target deadly childhood cancer
Australian researchers find new way to target deadly childhood cancer
Research by Australian scientists could pave the way to a new treatment for a currently incurable brain cancer in children called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG. Affecting about 20 children in Australia each year, DIPG is a devastating disease with an average survival time of just nine months after diagnosis. The research, led by scientists at Children’s Cancer Institute and published…

Most differences in DNA binding compounds found at birth in children conceived by IVF not seen in early childhood, NIH study finds
Most differences in DNA binding compounds found at birth in children conceived by IVF not seen in early childhood, NIH study finds
Compared to newborns conceived traditionally, newborns conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) are more likely to have certain chemical modifications to their DNA, according to a study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health. The changes involve DNA methylation–the binding of compounds known as methyl groups to DNA–which can alter gene activity. Only one of the modifications…

New research shows how immune response to TB differs in babies
New research shows how immune response to TB differs in babies
The immune response to tuberculosis (TB) differs in adults and newborn babies due to the way immune cells use energy to kick into gear in a bid to kill the bacteria. This fresh discovery – just published in leading journal, Frontiers in Immunology – offers hope for improving treatments for what remains a deadly disease. TB is still one of the biggest infectious killers in the world and babies are…

Scientists identify severe asthma species, show air pollutant as likely contributor
Scientists identify severe asthma species, show air pollutant as likely contributor
Asthma afflicts more than 300 million people worldwide. The most severe manifestation, known as non-Th2, or non-atopic childhood asthma, represents the majority of the cases, greater than 85%, particularly in low-income countries, according to Hyunok Choi (https://health.lehigh.edu/faculty/choi-hyunok), an associate professor at the Lehigh University College of Health…

Habitual snoring linked to significant brain changes in children
Habitual snoring linked to significant brain changes in children
Children who regularly snore have structural changes in their brain that may account for the behavioral problems associated with the condition including lack of focus, hyperactivity, and learning difficulties at school. That is the finding of a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM), which was published today in the journal Nature…

Study links structural brain changes to behavioral problems in children who snore
WHAT: A large study of children has uncovered evidence that behavioral problems in children who snore may be associated with changes in the structure of their brain’s frontal lobe. The findings support early evaluation of children with habitual snoring (snoring three or more nights a week). The research, published in Nature Communications, was supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse…
