Researchers from Yale and universities in Canada, Jordan, and the United Kingdom have developed a reliable survey tool to measure resilience in youths displaced by the brutal conflict in Syria.
Faculty from Yale’s Schools of Medicine and Public Health and Department of Psychiatry offered members of the media insights into the the opioid crisis in Connecticut — and the importance of accurate reporting about it — at a roundtable discussion on June 13.
An analysis of breast cancer data revealed that many small breast cancers have an excellent prognosis because they are inherently slow growing, according to Yale Cancer Center experts. Often, these cancers will not grow large enough to become significant within a patient’s lifetime and subsequently early detection could lead to overdiagnosis, said the reseachers.
Some young adults have inherited heart conditions that require them to use an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, or ICD. For years, they were told they could not engage in sports more vigorous than golf. But a new study led by a Yale researcher suggests that the risks of participating in sports for athletes with ICDs are actually quite low.
A new study sheds light on the depth of health care disparities faced by minority populations in the United States. The findings suggest a possible “double jeopardy” for black and Hispanic patients: Not only has it been shown that members of minority groups receive less high-quality, effective care than their peers, they may also be at risk of receiving more low-value, ineffective care.
Yale scientists produced increased grooming behavior in mice that may model tics in Tourette syndrome and discovered these behaviors vanish when histamine — a neurotransmitter most commonly associated with allergies — is introduced into their brains.
Yale University scientists have developed a novel chemical process that may lead to the creation of a new class of antibiotics.
In response to the rise in opioid overdose deaths nationwide, pharmaceutical companies have developed formulations of prescription opioids designed to prevent tampering or abuse. These “abuse-deterrent” forms, however, are expensive and may not actually have the intended effect, say experts from Yale School of Medicine.
Earth’s earliest primates dwelled in treetops, not on the ground, according to an analysis of a 62-million-year-old partial skeleton discovered in New Mexico — the oldest-known primate skeleton.
Activating neurons in an area of the brain not previously associated with feeding can produce binge-eating behavior in mice, a new Yale study finds. "What was most remarkable was the rapidity with which the mice began to eat,” said the researcher.
