    Jan 12, 2016 | Medical News Today

    Up to 19% of women are being incorrectly determined as having dense or non-dense breasts due to inconsistency in measuring breast density. Moreover, supplemental breast cancer screenings for women with dense breasts are greatly increasing the chance of both true and false positive results, says research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine .

  7. Antiviral potential found in hepatitis C virusRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 6, 2016 | Medical News Today

    Scientists have discovered how a molecule with broad-spectrum antiviral activity found inside the hepatitis C virus kills viruses but does not harm host cells - it discriminates between the molecular make-up and size of their membranes. The study suggests AH peptide - a molecule derived from the hepatitis C virus - could lead to an effective antiviral drug against viruses with cholesterol-rich membranes.

  9. Oxytocin has different effects on stress in male and female miceRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 3, 2015 | Medical News Today

    Clinical trials are testing whether oxytocin , sometimes called the "love hormone" for its role in intimacy and social bonding, has potential as a treatment for anxiety , depression and post-traumatic stress disorder . New research by behavioral neuroscientists Michael Steinman, Brian Trainor and colleagues at the University of California, Davis, suggests oxytocin may have different effects in men and women--and in certain circumstances the hormone may actually trigger anxiety.

  10. Ultrasound reveals knuckle-cracking fireworksRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 1, 2015 | Medical News Today

    Research presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America tackles one of life's great mysteries: what causes a knuckle to "crack" out loud? "It's extremely common for joints to crack, pop and snap," said Robert D. Boutin, M.D., professor of radiology at University of California, Davis Health System. "We were interested in pursuing this study because there's a raging debate about whether the knuckle-cracking sound results from a bubble popping in the joint or from a bubble being created in the joint."
