Why do people with autism see faces differently?
The way people with autism spectrum disorder gather information - not the judgement process itself -- might explain why they gain different perceptions from peoples' faces, according to a new study from Hpital Rivire-des-Prairies and the University of Montreal.

Therapy found effective in older, African-American lung cancer patients
University of Cincinnati researchers have found in a phase 2 clinical trial that a Food and Drug Administration-approved therapy could be effective in treating both older and African-American patients with advanced lung cancer who may not be candidates for chemotherapy.

Penn researchers identify protein that predicts post-concussion severity in professional athletes
New Penn Medicine research has found that elevated levels in the blood of the brain-enriched protein calpain-cleaved αII-spectrin N-terminal fragment, known as SNTF, shortly after sports-related concussion can predict the severity of post-concussion symptoms in professional athletes. The complete findings were released today in the Journal of Neurotrauma.

New insights into breast cancer spread could yield better tests and treatments
A study combining patients' tumor cells with a laboratory model of blood vessel lining provides the most compelling evidence so far that a specific trio of cells is required for the spread of breast cancer. The findings could lead to better tests for predicting whether a woman's breast cancer will spread. The study, led by researchers at the NCI-designated Albert Einstein Cancer Center and Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care, published today in Science Signaling.

Satellite views early Thanksgiving travel trouble areas in US
As the US Thanksgiving holiday approaches this Thursday, November 27, NOAA's GOES-East and GOES-West satellites are keeping a weather eye out for storms that may affect early travelers. In an image from Nov. 25, the satellites show an active weather pattern is in place for travelers across the central and eastern US.

Powdered measles vaccine found safe in early clinical trials
A measles vaccine made of fine dry powder and delivered with a puff of air triggered no adverse side effects in early human testing and it is likely effective, according to a paper to be published Nov. 28 in the journal Vaccine. The paper is now available online.

Entrepreneurs to venture capitalists: Don't be a Scrooge
A recently published study of more than 550 decisions and responses from 144 experienced entrepreneurs reveals that 'knowledge of explicit ethical or unethical behavior [by venture capitalists] profoundly shapes the entrepreneurs' willingness to partner.'

Lawrence Livermore researchers develop efficient method to produce nanoporous metals
Nanoporous metals -- foam-like materials that have some degree of air vacuum in their structure -- have a wide range of applications because of their superior qualities.

Novel type 1 diabetes treatment shown to work on human beta cells transplanted into mice
A chemical produced in the pancreas that prevented and even reversed Type 1 diabetes in mice had the same effect on human beta cells transplanted into mice, new research has found.

Endangered species success: Idaho salmon regaining fitness advantage
Once on the brink of extinction with only a few fish remaining, Snake River sockeye salmon are regaining the fitness they need to rebuild wild populations. A new analysis shows that naturally spawned offspring of fish saved by a hatchery program are now surviving to return at increasing rate -- high enough to not only sustain the population but also to rebuild it.
