Predicting developmental delays in preterm infants through brain chemical ratios

Researchers have identified a potential biomarker for predicting whether a premature infant is at high risk for motor development problems, according to a study published online in the journal Radiology.”We are living in an era in which survival of premature birth is more common,” said Giles S. Kendall, Ph.D. Pregnancy / Obstetrics News From Medical […]

Defects in minor class splicing likely cause of developmental disease

Melbourne researchers have made a major step forward in understanding how changes in an essential cellular process, called minor class splicing, may cause a severe developmental disease.Using zebrafish, which is a popular laboratory model for studying development, the researchers discovered that the action of a protein called Rnpc3 is critical for the growth of many […]
