Either too much or too little weight gain during pregnancy is associated with adverse outcomes in children aged 7 years
New research shows that if a woman gains either too much or too little weight during pregnancy, there are adverse effects in children at 7 years of age.

People with COPD suffer fewer lung-related problems when treated with targeted lung denervation
First results from a clinical trial of a procedure to open obstructed airways in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have shown that it significantly reduces problems associated with the disease and is safe.

Clinical gene discovery program solves 30 medical mysteries
A table in a recently published paper tells the story of 30 families who have, sometimes after years of searching, finally received an answer about the condition that has plagued one or more family members.

Current rates of diagnosed type 1 and type 2 diabetes in American adults
A new study finds that type 2 diabetes remains overwhelmingly the most common type of diabetes diagnosed in American adults who have the disease. The study found that among Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes, 91.2 percent have type 2 diabetes and 5.6 percent have type 1 diabetes.

E. coli's adaptation to extreme temperatures helps explain resistance to certain drugs
A new study suggests that defenses against extreme temperatures give E. coli bacteria an advantage in fending off certain drugs. The work could help doctors administer antibiotics in a more precise way.

Modeling crystal behavior: Towards answers in self-organization
Researchers have created a model to explore the transition behavior of crystal lattices. Their system, based on spheroid particles with a permanent dipole, showed that the combination of anisotropic steric and dipole effects causes frustration that induces the coupling between polarization and strain, resulting in the self-organization. These findings are expected to contribute to the rational design of materials for applications including electro-mechanical actuators and electro-caloric refrigerators.

After 150 years, a breakthrough in understanding the conversion of carbon dioxide to electrofuels
Using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, engineers have observed how carbon dioxide is activated at the electrode-electrolyte interface. Their finding shifts the catalyst design from trial-and-error paradigm to a rational approach and could lead to alternative, cheaper, and safer renewable energy storage.
