Homing In on the Genetics of Migraine

SUNDAY, June 26, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- An international team of scientists has identified dozens of new genetic variants associated with migraine headaches. The researchers say their findings could lead to new treatments. Most of the variants are in or close to genes involved in circulatory system regulation. This supports the theory that abnormal blood vessel function in the brain is an important factor in migraines, the investigators said. "These genetic...

Hovering Parents May Harm Kids

SATURDAY, June 25, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Children with "intrusive" parents who push too hard for good grades may be more prone to become highly self-critical or anxious and depressed, a new study suggests. "When parents become intrusive in their children's lives, it may signal to the children that what they do is never good enough," said study leader Ryan Hong, an assistant professor in the department of psychology...

DNA Tests May Spot Brain Infections

FRIDAY, June 24, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Genetic testing may help diagnose or rule out brain infections, researchers report. They said their pilot study showed that using computers to rapidly analyze large amounts of genetic and biological information from brain tissue samples could offer a cost-effective addition to pathology lab testing. The research team from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore noted that more than 50 percent of inflammatory disorders and...

Smoking May Hinder Common Breast Cancer Treatment

FRIDAY, June 24, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Smoking may blunt the effectiveness of a certain kind of breast cancer treatment, new research suggests. Among breast cancer patients taking a class of drugs called aromatase inhibitors, smokers had a three times greater risk of their cancer returning than nonsmokers, the investigators found. However, the study could not prove a cause-and-effect link. Smoking had little or no effect on the benefit...

Diabetes Ups Risk of Heart Attack Death

FRIDAY, June 24, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- People with diabetes are much more likely to die after a heart attack than people without the blood sugar condition, a new study finds. Researchers included 700,000 people in the study. All of them were hospitalized with a heart attack between January 2003 and June 2013. About 121,000 had diabetes. Compared to people who didn't have diabetes, those with the disease were 56...

Five New Genes Linked to Colon Cancer

FRIDAY, June 24, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Scientists have identified five new gene mutations that may be tied to colon cancer. The findings are from an analysis of genes from more than 1,000 people with colon cancer. The links between these five gene mutations were very rare, so further research is needed to confirm if they're actually associated with colon cancer. The study authors also concluded that all the...
