    Glycosylated proteins are often overexpressed in tumor cells and thus could serve as tumor markers, especially those with the interesting molecule sialic acid as their sugar moiety. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, American scientists now report on a bioorthogonal labeling test for sialylated glycoproteins based on a glycoproteomics approach. This assay not only assesses the level of sialylated glycans in the tumor cell membranes, but also identifies up- or downregulated proteins directly in...

    Current HIV treatment guidelines now recommend initiating antiretroviral treatment (ART) at the time of diagnosis. However, a new study has found that such early ART causes greater bone loss compared with deferring ART.The study followed 399 participants (195 immediate ART and 204 deferred ART) for an average of 2.2 years. Although the study revealed a negative effect on bone density of immediate ART, the overall benefits of ART for preventing HIV transmission and adverse health outcomes...

    Most patients suffering liver toxicity due to medications or herbal or dietary supplements recover from the acute liver injury without long-term problems, but some do not survive the injury or they require liver transplantation. In a recent study, nearly 10% of patients with definite, highly likely, or probable drug-induced liver injury had a fatal outcome within 2 years of onset.In the 107 deaths among 1089 patients in the study, drug-induced liver injury was the primary cause of death in 68...

    Degeneration of cartilage and other joint tissues is a major cause of disability. A new review highlights the recent developments in biofabrication, a new technique that allows investigators to print living tissues for implantation that can potentially regenerate cartilage and eventually the full joint.   The review also notes that biofabrication can use digital medical images as blueprints for printing patient-specific implants.    “Biofabrication allows for the...

    Plastic with a thousand faces: A single piece of Nafion foil makes it possible to produce a broad palette of complex 3D structures. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers describe how they use simple chemical “programming” to induce the foil to fold itself using origami and kirigami principles. These folds can be repeatedly “erased” and the foil can be “reprogrammed”. We have all seen the cranes and lotus flowers produced from a sheet of paper by...

    A new study finds that maintaining a strong ethnic identity and high levels of social support can help Latino adolescents in the United States cope with racism. On the other hand, outward expression of anger exacerbated the association between discrimination and adjustment problems.The 3-wave longitudinal study included 269 Mexican-origin adolescents from the Midwestern United States who completed questionnaires spaced approximately 4 months apart.“Our study findings have...

    In a study of 48 university students, intensive users of electronic devices reported more wrist/hand pain than non-intensive users.Intensive users also showed signs of effects on the median nerve within the carpal tunnel and the transverse carpal ligament, resulting in numbness, tingling, and pain in the hand.The findings indicate that caution may be warranted when using handheld electronic devices, in order to minimize the chance of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.“Our prior work identified...

    In a recent study, individuals with rheumatoid arthritis who consumed fish ≥2 times/week had lower disease activity (swollen/tender joint counts along with other assessments) than those who ate fish never to <1/month. There was also a graded association, so that increasing servings of fish were linked with incrementally lower levels of disease activity.In the study of 176 patients, frequency of fish consumption was assessed by a food frequency questionnaire assessing usual diet in the past...
