Indiana University Health rounded out 2017 in a strong financial position, despite its operating income being weighed down earlier in the year by its divestiture of three hospitals. The Indianapolis-based academic health center managed to boost its operating income by 85% in the third quarter compared with the same time in 2016 to nearly $239 million.
In a paper published in JAMA Internal Medicine in 2016, researchers suggested that in the 1960s, the sugar industry paid scientists to obscure the relationship between sugar and heart disease, derailing the course of nutrition science and policy for years to come. Now, two researchers at Columbia University say that those claims are not backed by the historical evidence, and by promoting the idea of a sugar conspiracy, they hinder our understanding of how science is actually done.

Undetected diabetes and prediabetes were found in about one-third of patients undergoing PCI, and this silent diabetes was linked to a significantly increased risk for worse outcomes after the procedure, according to data from the BIO-RESORT Silent Diabetes study.
In the randomized, multicenter BIO-RESORT trial, patients undergoing PCI were treated with an everolimus-eluting stent (Synergy, Boston Scientific), a sirolimus-eluting stent (Orsiro, Biotronik) or a zotarolimus-eluting stent (Resolute Integrity, Medtronic).
Working the night shift may play havoc with your blood sugar levels, a new study contends.
For the study, researchers looked at data on more than 270,000 people in the United Kingdom and found that those who worked irregular or rotating shifts that included night shifts were 44 percent more likely to have Type 2 diabetes than those who worked only days.
Breakthrough research at Monash University has shown how different areas of major diabetes and obesity drug targets can be 'activated', guiding future drug development and better treatment of diseases.
Monash researchers have identified specific areas within a key drug target, GLP-1R, that interact differently in response to the natural hormone and potential drugs, leading to differential effects in preclinical disease models.

Date: Source: Georgia Institute of Technology Summary: The pursuit of the usual suspect in Alzheimer's research may be distracting from a more direct culprit in the disease, according to a study that analyzed data from 51 published experiments. P-tau looked a good bit more culpable than amyloid-beta plaque.
The mass pursuit of a conspicuous suspect in Alzheimer's disease may have encumbered research success for decades. Now, a new data analysis that has untangled evidence amassed in years of Alzheimer's studies encourages researchers to refocus their investigations.
