    Plants can absorb nutrients through their leaves as well as their roots. However, foliar fertilization over an extended period is difficult. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, German researchers have now introduced an efficient delivery system for micronutrients based on biohybrid microgels. Special peptides anchor the “microcontainers” onto the leaf surface while binding sites inside ensure gradual release of the “cargo”. Foliar fertilization is already commonly used...

    Research has shown that patients with blood cancers are less likely to enroll in hospice care than patients with solid cancers, and the findings from a national survey suggest that concerns about the adequacy of hospice may prevent blood cancer specialists from referring their patients. Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the findings point to potential means of improving end-of-life care for patients with blood cancers such as leukemia and...

Following the introduction of the Prescribing Safety Assessment, as described in a new article published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, the vast majority of final-year medical students are able to accurately prescribe medications, but a small proportion require further...

the session at alleviating distress. Also, sociodemographic
and clinical characteristics had little effect on distress
levels.For the study, 71 patients and 48 partners attended a session that provided information on prostate cancer biology and...

    In a large study of individuals aged ≥55 years, hip and knee osteoarthritis was the greatest contributor to difficulty walking, and the effect increased with more hips and knees affected by osteoarthritis.In the study with 18,490 participants, the predicted probability of difficulty walking for a 60-year-old middle-income, normal-weight woman was 5-10% with no health conditions; 10-20% with diabetes and cardiovascular disease; 40% with osteoarthritis in two hips/knees; 60-70% with diabetes,...

    A new study found that group-based quality improvement sessions help rheumatologists care for rheumatoid arthritis patients with the recommended “treat to target” (TTT) approach to care. This approach involves setting a target for treatment, measuring progress towards achieving the target regularly, altering treatments until reaching and maintaining target, and sharing the decisions with patients.The randomized study, which is published in Arthritis & Rheumatology, included 320...

    A new study in retired athletes takes the first steps in developing an objective tool for diagnosing a history of sports concussions.Investigators note that sports-related concussions lead to persistent anomalies of the brain structure and function that interact with the effects of normal ageing. Their newly developed tool—which combines markers from cognitive, genetic, white matter, and grey matter assessments of the brain—could be used by clinicians to rule out a history of mild head traumas...
