Many overweight people lack the feeling of being full. It was long thought that this was due to the disrupted transport of the satiety hormone leptin to the brain.

An insulin-binding protein in fruit flies could provide new opportunities for tackling disease-carrying mosquitos, such as malaria and yellow fever, scientists at the University of York have found.
 
   A new promising method for treating pancreatic cancerA new promising method for treating pancreatic cancer
 
A new approach to treating pancreatic cancer using 'educated killer cells' has shown promise, according to early research by Queen Mary University of London.
 
 Study: Neurons regulating reproductive hormone release have different activity in epileptic mice
 
Study: Neurons regulating reproductive hormone release have different activity in epileptic miceMice with epilepsy have altered patterns of neuron activity in the portion of the brain that controls the reproductive endocrine system, University of Illinois researchers report in a new study. Furthermore, the differences in neuron activity in female mice fluctuate across the reproductive cycle, the team found.
 
 
 Lab study shows effectiveness of potential therapy for treatment-resistant hypothyroidism
 
Lab study shows effectiveness of potential therapy for treatment-resistant hypothyroidismA new "metal-coordinated" drug-delivery technology potentially could be used to supplement the standard therapy for hypothyroidism, which affects nearly 10 million Americans, and many more patients worldwide, according to results of a study published in the journal Thyroid this month.
 
 
 New statistical method estimates long- and short-term risk of recurrence of breast cancer in US women
 
New statistical method estimates long- and short-term risk of recurrence of breast cancer in US womenA statistical method could fill the gaps in the U.S. cancer registry data to estimate the short- and long-term risk of recurrence of hormone receptor (HR)-positive and HR-negative breast cancers.
 
 
 Skin-to-skin contact may promote attachment between parents and preterm infants
 
Skin-to-skin contact may promote attachment between parents and preterm infantsFor premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit, skin-to-skin contact with parents influences levels of hormones related to mother-infant attachment (oxytocin) and stress (cortisol) - and may increase parents' level of engagement with their infants, reports a study in Advances in Neonatal Care, official journal of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.
 
 
 Researchers investigate why some cancers affect only young women
 
Researchers investigate why some cancers affect only young womenAmong several forms of pancreatic cancer, one of them affects specifically women, often young. How is this possible, even though the pancreas is an organ with little exposure to sex hormones? This pancreatic cancer, known as "mucinous cyst", has strange similarities with another mucinous cancer, affecting the ovaries.
 
 
 Fat tissue could be a source of diabetes, shows new research
 
Fat tissue could be a source of diabetes, shows new researchA new study by Australian researchers, out today, is challenging what we know about the causes of diabetes. The new research points to fat tissue as a source of disease, and widens our understanding beyond the traditional focus on liver and pancreas as the main culprits.
 
 
 Cancer cells hijack communication between fallopian tube and ovary to drive tumor growth
 
Cancer cells hijack communication between fallopian tube and ovary to drive tumor growthNew research from the University of Illinois at Chicago shows that cancer cells in the fallopian tube affect normal chemical signaling between reproductive tissues and stimulate the release of norepinephrine, a small molecule hormone, from the ovary.
