Placebo effect works in reverse

first_imgA brain imaging study carried out at Oxford has shown that patients’ prior expectations can significantly alter their responses to pain-relief drugs.The research into the placebo effect, and its opposite, the nocebo effect, led by Professor Irene Tracey, showed all of the impact of a drug  could be undermined by poor expectations of pain relief beforehand.Equally, when patients mistakenly believed that the dosage of pain relief had been increased, brain imaging scans showed that they really did experience less pain, despite constant administration of pain relief drugs.The researchers have proposed that doctors confront patients’ beliefs and expectations before they administer a drug, in order to optimise the outcome of the treatment.last_img read more

Perfect landing

first_imgNew research is casting doubt on the old adage, “All you need to run is a pair of shoes.”Scientists have found that people who run barefoot, or in minimal footwear, tend to avoid “heel-striking,” and instead land on the ball of the foot or the middle of the foot. In so doing, these runners use the architecture of the foot and leg and some clever Newtonian physics to avoid hurtful and potentially damaging impacts, equivalent to two to three times body weight, that shod heel-strikers repeatedly experience.“People who don’t wear shoes when they run have an astonishingly different strike,”said Daniel E. Lieberman, professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University and co-author of a paper appearing this week in the journal Nature. “By landing on the middle or front of the foot, barefoot runners have almost no impact collision, much less than most shod runners generate when they heel-strike.“Most people today think barefoot running is dangerous and hurts, but actually you can run barefoot on the world’s hardest surfaces without the slightest discomfort and pain. All you need is a few calluses to avoid roughing up the skin of the foot. Further, it might be less injurious than the way some people run in shoes.”Working with populations of runners in the United States and Kenya, Lieberman and his colleagues at Harvard, the University of Glasgow, and Moi University in Kenya looked at the running gaits of three groups: those who had always run barefoot, those who had always worn shoes, and those who had converted to barefoot running from shod running. The researchers found a striking pattern.Most shod runners — more than 75 percent of Americans — heel-strike, experiencing a very large and sudden collision force about 1,000 times per mile run. People who run barefoot, however, tend to land with a springy step toward the middle or front of the foot.“Heel-striking is painful when barefoot or in minimal shoes because it causes a large collisional force each time a foot lands on the ground,” said co-author Madhusudhan Venkadesan, a postdoctoral researcher in applied mathematics and human evolutionary biology at Harvard. “Barefoot runners point their toes more at landing, avoiding this collision by decreasing the effective mass of the foot that comes to a sudden stop when you land, and by having a more compliant, or springy, leg.”The differences between shod and unshod running have evolutionary underpinnings. For example, said Lieberman, our early australopith ancestors had less-developed arches in their feet. Homo sapiens, by contrast, has evolved a strong, large arch that we use as a spring when running.“Our feet were made in part for running,” Lieberman said. But as he and his co-authors write in Nature: “Humans have engaged in endurance running for millions of years, but the modern running shoe was not invented until the 1970s. For most of human evolutionary history, runners were either barefoot or wore minimal footwear such as sandals or moccasins with smaller heels and little cushioning.”For modern humans who have grown up wearing shoes, barefoot or minimal shoe running is something to be eased into, warned Lieberman. Modern running shoes are designed to make heel-striking easy and comfortable. The padded heel cushions the force of the impact, making heel-striking less punishing.“Running barefoot or in minimal shoes is fun but uses different muscles,” said Lieberman. “If you’ve been a heel-striker all your life, you have to transition slowly to build strength in your calf and foot muscles.”In the future, he hopes, the kind of work done in this paper can not only investigate barefoot running but can provide insight into how to better prevent the repetitive-stress injuries that afflict a high percentage of runners today.“Our hope is that an evolutionary medicine approach to running and sports injury can help people run better for longer and feel better while they do it,” said Lieberman, who has created a Web site, to educate runners about the respective merits of shod and barefoot running.The Nature paper arose out of the senior honors theses of two Harvard undergraduates, William Werbel ’08 and Adam Daoud ‘09, both of whom went to Africa with Lieberman to help collect data for this study.Lieberman’s co-authors on the Nature paper are Venkadesan and Daoud at Harvard; Werbel, now at the University of Michigan; Susan D’Andrea of the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Providence; Irene S. Davis of the University of Delaware; and Robert Ojiambo Mang’Eni and Yannis Pitsiladis of Moi University in Kenya and the University of Glasgow in Scotland.The research was funded by the American School of Prehistoric Research, the Goelet Fund, Harvard University, and Vibram USA.last_img read more

Ozias-Akins Honored

first_imgThe University of Georgia Research Foundation (UGARF) has named Professor Peggy Ozias-Akins a Distinguished Research Professor, a title awarded to UGA faculty recognized internationally for their contributions to knowledge and whose work promises to foster continued creativity in their discipline.In 2015, she was awarded a Creative Research Medal by UGARF and the D.W. Brooks Distinguished Professor Award by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES)Ozias-Akins, a CAES professor of horticulture, applies advanced biotechnology and molecular biology tools — tools she developed herself in some cases — to improve crops like peanuts.She is an expert on apomixis, the asexual production of seeds in plants. Even though it was studied for decades, there was little to show for these efforts until Ozias-Akins took a pioneering approach and applied a combination of forward genetics, genetic engineering and genomics to the problem. She was among the first to localize apomixis to a chromosomal region. She later found the first plant gene associated with it. Her work lays the foundation to begin research into the systematic application of apomixis in plant breeding, which could have an enormous impact on agriculture in both advanced and developing nations.Working with the federally funded Peanut and Mycotoxin Innovation Lab project based at UGA, Ozias-Akins and her colleagues are seeking genetic markers that indicate resistance to aflatoxin, a cancer-causing chemical produced by molds that grow in soil, decaying vegetation. This could have a global impact on the peanut industry.Ozias-Akins serves as director for the UGA Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics.She and other institute faculty create new and improved plant varieties that are higher yielding, more disease resistant, more nutritious or have greater ornamental value.She also co-chairs the Peanut Genome Sequencing Consortium, an extension of the International Peanut Genome Initiative. As an integral member of the initiative, she helped to sequence the commercial peanut, which will jumpstart breeders’ ability to identify genes or areas of genes with particular advantageous traits such as disease resistance or oil chemistry.In her research program, Ozias-Akins studies crops that benefit the economy in Georgia and globally.“The peanut is one of the crops I work on and it’s a fascinating crop. It flowers above ground while it fruits below,” she said. “There are a lot of challenges growing peanuts from both foliar and soilborne pathogens.”In her research program at UGA, Ozias-Akins has helped to create peanut lines that are resistant to fungal contamination and produce fewer allergens. She has also introduced several genes into peanuts, including one that reduces the allergens in peanuts.“Some of the proteins in peanuts can cause severe reactions in humans. We were able to knock down the production and, in some cases, almost eliminate those proteins,” she said. “Unfortunately, no companies want to push a genetically modified peanut because it takes a lot of money and years to get it through the system.”Peanut and other crop yields have increased steadily through plant breeding. “(Breeding methods) really need to change with an expected 9 billion population. Scientists need to be able to use all the tools in our toolbox to keep those yield gains going up,” Ozias-Akins said. “Genomics is one of those tools. Globally, peanuts are an important oilseed crop in China, India and Africa. China is the top producer. In many developing countries, small peanut farmers are often women. It’s very important to improve the crop genetically.”Over her more-than-30-year career at UGA, Ozias-Akins says it has been very rewarding to see classical and molecular breeders come together.“We use molecular tools in our crop breeding programs and we pass this knowledge along by working with students,” she said. “Agriculture students are the scientists of the future and they need to know about both methods — classical and molecular breeding — in order to be successful.”A native of Tifton, Georgia, her interest in science goes as far back as third grade, when she entered a science fair with a project on trees. She went on to win first-place ribbons in numerous science fairs throughout her formative years, including a first-place award for a project on bacteria on plants.Ozias-Akins left south Georgia to earn an undergraduate degrees in biology and botany from Florida State University (FSU) and a doctorate in botany from the University of Florida (UF). She returned to Georgia in 1986 to join the UGA faculty at UGA-Tifton. She credits her mentors, UF scientist Norris Williams and FSU researcher Margaret Menzel, for encouraging her interest in genetics.last_img read more

Twin Gold Coast properties with distinct designs face off

first_imgThe light and bright villa one will face off against the seductive villa two. While villa two has dark and bold features.Both offer absolute luxury with a floorplan which spans three levels, featuring four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool and rooftop terrace. More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoAward-winning builder and director Shannon Koryzma, of Koryzma Constructions, said even the kerb appeal of the two varied. “We have gone for a contemporary modern look with nice sharp lines on the corner villa, villa two, which has a really edgy look,” he said. “Villa one, we have gone for a more smooth rendered finish to be a point of difference between the two.“(They are) modern, open-plan homes with functional living and entertainment areas, with high-class finishes to suit the luxury homebuyer.” Each has a rooftop terrace with impressive views.The non-identical twins at 25 Merrimac Blvd are on the market through John Weedon, of John Reid Real Estate, with a $1.55 million price tag for villa one and $1.45 million for No. 2. Villa one and two at 25 Merrimac Blvd, Broadbeach Waters, have hit the market, each boasting a different style.NOT all twins have to be identical, as proven by a stylish pair of properties that have hit the market in Broadbeach Waters. Villa one is light and bright and will satisfy those who like a crisp and clean finish. Its neighbour has black accents and bold features for buyers with a craving for a more seductive design. MORE NEWS: Home of House Rules winners hits the marketMORE NEWS: Spring has sprung early for property market Both are on the market, with a price tag of $1.55 million for No. 1 and $1.45 million for villa two.Mr Koryzma said the rooftop garden of villa two was a standout feature thanks to its views of the city skyline and Hinterland, making the perfect spot to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset. But the backyard of villa one rivalled it as his favourite part of the properties. “The external decking and sunken lounge area around the pool, with views to the canal looking back on to the swimming pool and barbecue area with tropical garden surrounds, in villa one would have to be one of my favourite parts,” he said.
