An emerging field, known as implementation science, may help reduce the nearly 150,000 instances of mother-to-child HIV transmissions that occur annually around the world, mostly in developing countries. A team of scientists and program managers, led by the National Institutes of Health, has been studying a variety of implementation science approaches to prevent mother-to-child transmission and has published the results in a 16-article open-access supplement to the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes. In implementation science, scientists study how to integrate research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine care and services.

Autism and #Heavy Metals Linked through Baby Teeth | GEN

Originally posted 2017-06-13 16:04:13.


Exposure to heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, and zinc, and the development of autism spectral disorder (ASD) has been a contentious relationship, to say the least. While the general scientific consensus is that the development of ASD is largely under the influence genetic mechanisms, there is substantial evidence to support that environmental exposure to various compounds has some association with the developmental disorder. Now, an international group of investigators led by scientists at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Karolinska Institute has found that baby teeth from children with autism contain more toxic lead and less of the essential nutrients zinc and manganese, compared to teeth from children without autism.
