Sudden cardiac arrest during sports activities is relatively low among physically active middle-aged adults, and older people can exercise without worrying about triggering a heart rhythm disturbance, revealed by American researchers. Sudden cardiac arrest is the abrupt loss of heart…


Small differences in as many as a thousand genes contribute to risk for autism or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This new study examined data on several types of rare, genetic differences in more than 14,000 DNA samples from parents,…


Cancer research in the U.S. got a critical boost today as the six Ludwig Centers received a total of $540 million as part of a gift from Ludwig Cancer Research, on behalf of its founder, Daniel K. Ludwig.


Scientists back preventative surgery to improve survival for women who are at greater risk of getting ovarian cancer and suggest it appears helpful for women at risk of getting breast cancer because of genetic faults. Women who carry,…


Researchers have created a computer algorithm that successfully predicts whether estrogen is sending signals to cancer cells to grow into tumours in the breast. By finding this hormone receptor, known as estrogen receptor positive, physicians can prescribe anti-estrogen drug…
