Alzheimer's disease acquired from historic medical treatments
Alzheimer’s disease acquired from historic medical treatments
Five cases of Alzheimer's disease are believed to have arisen as a result of medical treatments decades earlier, reports a team of UCL and UCLH researchers. Alzheimer's disease is caused by the amyloid-beta protein, and is usually a sporadic condition of late adult life, or more rarely an inherited condition that occurs due to a faulty gene.

When a stressful situation is perceived as a threat, health and wellbeing suffer
People experience more health and wellbeing issues when they feel overwhelmed by stressful situations rather than seeing them as a challenge, study finds. Published on Monday 29 January 2024 Last updated on Monday 29 January 2024 People who tend to view stressful situations as a threat are more likely to experience health and wellbeing problems, both mental and physical, than those who see them as a challenge, according to new research from the University of Bath.

Blood test could be accurate way to detect Alzheimer's disease
Blood test could be accurate way to detect Alzheimer’s disease
A commercial blood test could detect Alzheimer's disease as accurately as standard lumbar punctures, finds a new study involving a UCL researcher. The research, published in JAMA Neurology, found that the ALZpath's Blood-Based Test was capable of detecting 'p-tau217', a form of the protein tau, which is a hallmark protein of Alzheimer's disease.

Research breakthrough could spare brain cancer patients risky surgery
A simple blood test could help diagnose patients with the deadliest form of brain cancer, sparing them from undergoing invasive, highly-risky surgery. In a world-first, the new technique has been proven for glial tumours including glioblastoma (GBM), the most commonly-diagnosed type of high-grade brain tumour in adults.

New Thoroughbred genetic fracture risk scoring system developed by the RVC discovers collagen is contributing factor
New research from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) into genetic risks of fracture in Thoroughbred horses has found that horses with lower levels of collagen type III have a higher risk of fracture. Previously, there has been limited research into this disease with no specific genetic mechanisms identified.

Gene behind Down syndrome heart defects identified
A gene that causes heart defects in Down syndrome has been identified by researchers at UCL and the Francis Crick Institute. The team found that reducing the overactivity of this gene partially reversed these defects in mice, paving the way for potential future therapies for heart conditions in people with Down syndrome.

Facial features linked to stereotypes and social class perception
Research shows that people are quick to form impressions of other people's social class standing, which can have important consequences - but what specifically drives these impressions, and their relationship to judgements of harmful or advantageous stereotypes, has remained unknown. Social class is a powerful hierarchy that determines many privileges and disadvantages in society.

Bystander support is crucial for tackling anti-social behaviour
Confronting poor behaviour cannot be left to a single voice to be effective, shows new research highlighting the importance of bystander intervention. Published on Thursday 25 January 2024 Last updated on Thursday 25 January 2024 Witnesses to anti-social behaviour must speak up to support the lone voices of people who confront it to reduce the risk of such behaviour becoming tolerated in society, according to research from the Universities of Bath, Groningen and Western Australia.

Global groundwater levels declining rapidly, but they can recover
Groundwater levels are declining at rapid and accelerating rates in numerous aquifers around the world, but the decline can be reversed in some cases, finds a new study involving researchers from University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), UCL and ETH Zürich. The research, published in Nature , analysed measurements taken over the last two decades from 170,000 wells in 1,693 aquifer systems across more than 40 countries.

New search finds 85 exoplanet candidates – as cool as planets in our own Solar System
New search finds 85 exoplanet candidates - as cool as planets in our own Solar System Astronomers have discovered 85 possible planets outside of our solar system, with temperatures closer to those of our own Solar System planets, potentially cool enough to sustain life. These exoplanet candidates, discovered using data from data from NASA's Transitioning Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), are similar in size to Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune in our Solar System.
