›  Short-term use of IV devices is common -- and risky -- study shows
Many hospital patients get medicine or nutrition delivered straight into their bloodstream through a tiny device called a PICC. In just a decade, it's become the go-to device for intravenous care. But a new study finds that one in every four times a PICC gets inserted, the patient didn't need it long enough to justify the risks it can pose. And nearly one in ten of those patients suffered a complication linked to the device.
›  Young children use physics, not previous rewards, to learn about tools
Children as young as seven apply basic laws of physics to problem-solving, rather than learning from what has previously been rewarded, suggests new research.
›  Metalens combined with an artificial muscle
Inspired by the human eye, researchers have developed an adaptive metalens that is essentially a flat, electronically controlled artificial eye. The adaptive metalens simultaneously controls for three of the major contributors to blurry images: focus, astigmatism, and image shift.
›  Charging ahead to higher energy batteries
Researchers have developed a new way to improve lithium ion battery efficiency. Through the growth of a cubic crystal layer, the scientists have created a thin and dense connecting layer between the electrodes of the battery.
›  Molecular Trojan horse delivers chemotherapeutic drug to cancer cells
Researchers have discovered a way for chemotherapy drug paclitaxel to target migrating, or circulating, cancer cells, which are responsible for the development of tumor metastases. Until now, paclitaxel has only been used to target rapidly dividing cancer cells. The team was successful in getting the drug to piggyback on 123B9, an agent they devised to target an oncogene called EphA2.
›  Ice chips only? Study questions restrictions on oral intake for women in labor
At most US maternity units, women in labor are put on nil per os (NPO) status -- they're not allowed to eat or drink anything, except ice chips. But new nursing research questions that policy, showing no increase in risks for women who are allowed to eat and drink during labor.
›  Link between surface-water salinity and climate change examined
New research explores the impact of de-icing salt from roads and highways on a local watershed. The findings offer hope for the watershed's future surface-water chloride concentrations.
›  Why are there so many types of lizards?
Researchers have sequenced the complete genetic code -- the genome -- of several vertebrate species from Panama. They found that changes in genes involved in the interbrain (the site of the pineal gland and other endocrine glands), for color vision, hormones and the colorful dewlap that males bob to attract females, may contribute to the formation of boundaries between species. Genes regulating limb development also evolved especially quickly.
›  Prevention is better than cure: Targeted vaccination to halt epidemics
Scientists simulated real-world social networks to assess the best strategies for halting epidemics.
›  NASA's SDO Reveals How Magnetic Cage on the Sun Stopped Solar Eruption
A dramatic magnetic power struggle at the Sun's surface lies at the heart of solar eruptions, new research shows.
›  China's two-child policy may exacerbate gender inequality
Since China ended its one-child policy allowing all families to have up to two children, an additional 90 million women have become eligible to have a second child. But new sociology research suggests the new universal two-child policy could be negatively affecting women's status and gender equality.
›  Children's learning is not affected by repeated sick days with fever and infections
Whereas severe infections with long-term hospitalizations can make it more difficult for a child to pass the 9th grade exam, recurring less serious severe infections do not affect children's learning.
