Counseling for pregnant women gets personalized 27.5.2018 General News
New chromosome study can lead to personalised counseling of pregnant women, claims a team of researchers.Fetuses with a so-called new balanced chromosomal aberration have a higher risk of developing brain disorders such as autism and mental retardation than previously anticipated. According to a study conducted by the University of Copenhagen, the risk is 20 percent for fetuses with these types of aberrations.These chromosomal aberrations are seen in the fetus in one out of 2,000 pregnant women. Until now, when such an aberration has been found, the medical doctors have told the pregnant woman that the fetus' risk of developing congenital malformations is 6-9 percent."We have identified all the people who, as fetuses, were diagnosed with such a chromosomal aberration in Denmark, and we can see that they more often have developed a disease. The previous study, which found a risk of 6-9 percent, mainly looked at congenital malformations and did not include neurocognitive diseases such ..

People with autism can't recognise lies: Study 23.5.2018 General News
People with autism spectrum disorder are unable to distinguish truth from lies - putting them at greater risk of being manipulated, a study has found. Researchers, led by David Williams of the University of Kent in the UK, found that lie detection ability is 'significantly diminished' in those with a full autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis. It is also related to how many ASD traits people in the general population have - the more traits, the poorer the deception detection ability. Researchers conducted experiments with participants exhibiting varying degrees of ASD and compared them to those who were deemed 'neurotypical' or not displaying autistic patterns of thought or behaviour. Participants were shown a number of videos of people responding to questions about their earlier participation in an experiment during which they had an opportunity to cheat by looking at an answer sheet while the experimenter was out of the room. All the people in the video denied cheating, but some .

Does eating fish in pregnancy increase autism risk? 22.5.2018 General News
Turns out, autism is not linked to consuming fish in pregnancy.Scientists at the University of Bristol looked at the assumption that mercury exposure during pregnancy is a major cause of autism using evidence from nearly 4500 women who took part in the Children of the 90s study.Using analysis of blood samples, reported fish consumption and information on autism and autistic traits from one of the largest longitudinal studies to date, researchers found no links between levels of mercury in the mothers and autism or autistic traits in their children. The only adverse effect of mercury found was poor social cognition if mothers ate no fish at all, especially for girls.Lead author Jean Golding commented, "Our findings further endorse the safety of eating fish during pregnancy. Importantly we've found no evidence at all to support claims that mercury is involved in the development of autism or autistic traits."This adds to a body of work that endorses the eating of fish during pregnancy ...

A healthy digestive system could do wonders! 3.5.2018 General News
Microbes in the digestive system have a big influence on human health and may play a role in the onset of disease throughout the body, claims a research.According to the study conducted by the American Chemical Society, a way has been found to use chemical compounds to target and inhibit the growth of specific microbes in the gut associated with diseases without causing harm to other beneficial organisms.The digestive system is crammed with trillions of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that help process food. Recent studies suggested that the changes in these gut flora, or microbiome, may play a role in the onset of a host of diseases and conditions including obesity, diabetes, cancer, allergies, asthma, autism and multiple sclerosis.Antibiotics can help regulate the microbiome, but bacterial resistance is on the rise. In addition, antibiotics can wipe out some of the organisms that contribute to a healthy microbiome, and the microbes that take their place can sometimes cause more .
