Hyperhomocysteinemia patients with dyslipidemia are more likely to have stroke

Hyperhomocysteinemia and abnormal blood lipids are independent risk factors for stroke. However, whether both factors exert a synergistic effect in the onset of stroke remains unclear.

Caterpillars ward off predators with "toxic halitosis"
Tobacco hornworm caterpillars, which ingest large amounts of nicotine as they feed on tobacco plants, retain some of the toxin in their blood to "puff" out as a noxious warning to their predators, a study finds.

Noninvasive detection of malaria
A study finds that short laser pulses cause a byproduct of the malaria parasite to create a small vapor nanobubble, which is noninvasively and transdermally detectable at low levels of infection.

Different emotions are associated with distinct maps of bodily sensations
Emotions might be associated with discrete maps of bodily sensations, a study reports. Lauri Nummenmaa and colleagues developed a topographical self-reporting tool and found that different emotional states are associated with distinct, culturally universal bodily sensations.

Antidepressants for bipolar disorder
The use of antidepressants in the treatment of bipolar disorder remains controversial. Some studies and treatment guidelines suggest that antidepressant treatment for bipolar disorder may have the potential to increase the manic switch, while others recommend short-term antidepressant treatment and early discontinuation.

Potential prognostic tool for H7N9 influenza
Researchers report genetic and immunological correlates for increased susceptibility to H7N9 influenza. The flu virus H7N9, which originated in birds and caused an outbreak along China's Yangtze River Delta in March 2013, has infected more than 130 people and led to 44 deaths due to pneumonia or acute respiratory distress syndrome.
