Preemies’ Separation from Mom + Physical Stress May Increase Health Risks in Adulthood

A new study suggests that physiological stress in premature infants combined with separation from their mothers may have lasting effects into adulthood. In clinical studies, these factors have been found to increase the risk of obesity and insulin resistance, leading to metabolic disorders such as metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

American Society of Anesthesiologists and CAE Healthcare launch first-of-its-kind interactive simulation product, Anesthesia SimSTAT – Trauma

Anesthesia providers have been unable to improve their education and management of anesthetic emergencies in a virtual online environment, on-demand, from a simple laptop – until now. Today, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), and CAE Healthcare unveiled Anesthesia SimSTAT – Trauma, the first in a series of Anesthesia SimSTAT interactive screen-based simulation modules.

Genomic Recycling: Ancestral Genes Take On New Roles

Dr. Igor Ulitsky has found that ancient genes that lost their ability to make proteins were “recycled,” surviving across millennia – and species – by evolving to produce a type of RNA that regulates major biological processes. His findings could lead to treatments for a number of genetic diseases.
