Psoriasis Probe shows high level of arthritis symptoms in patients
Psoriasis Probe shows high level of arthritis symptoms in patients
Early results of an international study examining the risk of arthritis for people with psoriasis have shown a high burden of joint symptoms in 712 patients - 25% of the total studied so far. But the team are still on the hunt for 2,000 more patients with psoriasis, a condition that causes flaky patches of skin covered with white scales which affects about 3% of people in the UK and Europe.

Poor metabolic health linked to worse brain health
People with poor metabolic health are more likely to have memory and thinking problems and worse brain health, according to a new study by researchers at Oxford Population Health. The study is published in Diabetes Care , and is the largest study into metabolic and brain health to date. Poor metabolic health, also known as "metabolic syndrome", is defined as having three or more of the following: a large waist circumference, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and lower levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, sometimes known as 'good' cholesterol.

Blood test could predict Parkinson's seven years before symptoms
Blood test could predict Parkinson’s seven years before symptoms
A team of researchers, led by scientists at UCL and University Medical Center Goettingen, Germany, have developed a simple blood test that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to predict Parkinson's up to seven years before the onset of symptoms. Parkinson's disease is the world's fastest growing neurodegenerative disorder and currently affects nearly 10 million people across the globe.

Engineers unlock design for record-breaking robot that could jump twice the height of Big Ben
Manchester engineers unlock design for record-breaking robot that could jump twice the height of Big Ben Engineers at The University of Manchester have unlocked the secrets to designing a robot capable of jumping 200 metres - higher than any other jumping robot designed to date. Using a combination of mathematics, computer simulations, and laboratory experiments, the researchers have discovered how to design a robot with the optimum size, shape and the arrangement of its parts, allowing it to jump high enough to clear obstacles many times its own size.

’Forever chemicals’ found in English otters
New research by Cardiff University's Otter Project has found that PFAS, also known as 'forever chemicals', present in English otters, raising concerns about potential health impacts in the future. The Cardiff scientists tested otters from across the UK to monitor levels of PFAS in the environment, to gain an understanding of the concentration of these chemicals in the UK's freshwaters, their persistence in the environment and any ecological and health risks.

Your bra size is affecting how much you sweat, and it's not what you'd think
Your bra size is affecting how much you sweat, and it’s not what you’d think
A study by the University of Southampton has revealed a surprising link between breast size and the amount of sweat produced by the breast during exercise. The study looked at 22 women of different ages and breast sizes while they ran in a warm climatic chamber - measuring how much sweat they produced across the breast, how much heat their bodies were producing and how many sweat glands they had on different parts of their breasts.

Brain regions that bias the brain's response to pleasure in bipolar disorder identified
Brain regions that bias the brain’s response to pleasure in bipolar disorder identified
Momentary shifts in mood, even those lasting just a matter of seconds, profoundly alter the brain's response to pleasurable experiences in people with bipolar disorder, finds a new study by UCL researchers. Previous research shows that mood can make us experience events in more positive or negative light - irrespective of having bipolar disorder.

Video analysis of Iceland 2010 eruption could improve volcanic ash forecasts for aviation safety
Video analysis of Iceland 2010 eruption could improve volcanic ash forecasts for aviation safety
Video footage of Iceland's 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption is providing researchers from the University of Cambridge with rare, up-close observations of volcanic ash clouds - information that could help better forecast how far explosive eruptions disperse their hazardous ash particles. When Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010, it ejected roughly 250 million tonnes of volcanic ash into the atmosphere: much of which was blown over Europe and into flight paths.

New research centre aims to improve heart disease treatment
A new research collaboration is setting out to develop computational tools to improve treatments for one of the world's most common causes of death. The University of Glasgow will lead the newly-established EPSRC Centre for Future PCI Planning, which aims to improve outcomes from a frequently-performed treatment for heart artery disease.

Polyandrous birds evolve faster than monogamous ones, says research
A new study by the Milner Centre for Evolution suggests that mating systems of birds have a stronger effect on evolution rates than previously thought. New research led by the University of Bath's Milner Centre for Evolution shows that shorebird species where females breed with multiple males in each season evolve significantly faster than monogamous species.

Plant-based UPFs linked with higher risk of cardiovascular disease
Heavily processed plant-based foods may be worse for heart health than non-processed foods. New analysis of the health impacts of plant-based ultra-processed foods (UPFs) has found they may pose a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases compared to less-processed plant-based foods. The research , led by the University of São Paulo and involving Imperial College London, used data from more than 118,000 people.

What’s going on in our brains when we plan?
Study uncovers how the brain simulates possible future actions by drawing from our stored memories. In pausing to think before making an important decision, we may imagine the potential outcomes of different choices we could make. While this 'mental simulation' is central to how we plan and make decisions in everyday life, how the brain works to accomplish this is not well understood.

Children’s brain tumours could be diagnosed with 10 min scan, based on metabolic signature
New research suggests that MRI scanning could be used to determine which of four types of medulloblastoma present - which could cut wait for treatment by weeks. Children with the most common malignant form of brain cancer could see diagnostic wait times reduced thanks to new research that trialled a new, quicker and less invasive way of determining which type of tumour they have.

Textured tiles help endangered eels overcome human-made river obstacles
A new way of helping a critically endangered species of eel swim upstream during their migration has been tested by Cardiff researchers. The cheap and easy to retrofit method helps the fish overcome human-made obstacles such as culverts, weirs and flumes routinely used in UK waterways to enable river crossings via bridges and to regulate river flow.
