When the excruciating pain of a pancreas attack sends someone to the hospital, eating is probably the last thing they're thinking of. And for decades, medical teams have kept such patients away from solid food for days.
 
 
 NIBIB-funded scientists develop rapid and accurate tool for detecting early pancreatic cancerNIBIB-funded scientists develop rapid and accurate tool for detecting early pancreatic cancer
 
Researchers funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have developed a new tool for detecting early pancreatic cancer.
 
   Thyroid cancer surgery complications higher than previously thought, study suggestsThyroid cancer surgery complications higher than previously thought, study suggests
 
As thyroid cancer rates rise, more people are having surgery to remove all or part of their thyroid. A new study suggests complications from these procedures are more common than previously believed.
 
   IBS scientists uncover biological pathway that contributes to thyroid disorderIBS scientists uncover biological pathway that contributes to thyroid disorder
 
A team led by KOH Gou Young, director of the Center for Vascular Research, within the Institute for Basic Science, in collaboration with Chungnam National University, clarified the molecular mechanism to explain how the thyroid and surrounding vascular system change in the most common form of hyperthyroidism.
 
   Discovery of steroid hormone in fruit flies may shed new light on maternal hypothyroidismDiscovery of steroid hormone in fruit flies may shed new light on maternal hypothyroidism
 
University of Oregon researchers using Drosophila have identified a steroid hormone that triggers a vital transition in early brain development in which neural stem cells properly change gears to produce different kinds of neurons.
 
 Creatine Supplements
 
Creatine SupplementsCreatine is an endogenous amino acid which is synthesized in the liver, kidneys and pancreas. Approximately 95 percent of creatine is stored in the skeletal muscle where it takes part in regeneration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) produced through the oxidative phosphorylation cycle.
 
 
 Leptin Mutations
 
Leptin MutationsLeptin is a peptide hormone produced by adipocytes. It is a key part of the regulatory mechanism for appetite and energy stores, acting via central and peripheral actions. This hormone shows effects on metabolism, endocrine system, immunity and energy balance.
 
 
 Urinary Problems in Children
 
Urinary Problems in ChildrenThe urinary tract is composed of the kidneys, the ureters, the urinary bladder, and the urethra. Any disease of these structures is usually signaled by symptoms such as dysuria, that is, pain during micturition. While children frequently pass urine more often than adults, this is not usually pathological. However, when accompanied by other symptoms, it may be an indicator of urinary disease.
 
 
 Exercising burns fat in bone marrow to improve bone health, study shows
 
Exercising burns fat in bone marrow to improve bone health, study showsIt's a fat-burning secret anyone interested in bone health should know. For the first time, UNC School of Medicine researchers show that exercising burns the fat found within bone marrow and offers evidence that this process improves bone quality and the amount of bone in a matter of weeks.
 
 
 Researchers find relationship between insulin secretion machinery and calcium channels in diabetes
 
Researchers find relationship between insulin secretion machinery and calcium channels in diabetesResearchers from Uppsala University have studied beta cells of type-2 diabetic donors, and find that a mislocalized calcium channel contributes to the failed insulin secretion associated with the disease.
 
 
 What is Creatine?
 
What is Creatine?Creatine is an endogenous amino acid which is synthesized from simpler amino acids, namely glycine, arginine and the sulfur-containing amino acid methionine. Approximately 95 percent of creatine in the body is stored in skeletal muscle.
 
 
 Scientists use AHDS patients’ cells to recreate disease and mimic blood-brain barrier
 
Scientists use AHDS patients’ cells to recreate disease and mimic blood-brain barrierThe blood-brain barrier is biology's proverbial double-edged sword. An impermeable shield of endothelial cells that protects our brains from toxins and other threats that may lurk in circulating blood, the barrier can also exclude therapeutic drugs and, at times, essential biomolecules required for healthy brain development.
