Lilly schizophrenia drug fails clinical trial
Earlier tests in about 200 patients had shown that the drug worked quickly and safely without resulting in weight gain a much-criticized side effect of its top-selling anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa. The earlier trial also showed that the drug was effective in treating hallucinations delusions social withdrawal and apathy. The findings had been published in the journal Nature Medicine and attracted widespread attention in the psychiatric research world. Patients who took the drug in the earlier trial showed no weight increase nor did they exhibit adverse effects commonly associated with many schizophrenia medications such as involuntary movements or muscle stiffness. In the latest trial however the results fell short of the mark. Lilly tested the drug on 393 patients for four weeks. The drug failed to outperform Zyprexa.
Enzyme And Vitamin Define The Yin And Yang f Asthma

Combined Sound and Motion Draw Autistic Children
Note that this study however found a marked difference between autistic and typical children in how they respond to human motion — a finding that may lead to better diagnosis as well as greater understanding of the disorder. The serendipitous finding may open the door to earlier diagnosis and better understanding of the pathogenesis of autism according to Ami Klin Ph. and colleagues at Yale University School of Medicine. In a series of experiments Dr. Klin and colleagues found that toddlers with autism paid more attention to human motions when they were accompanied by synchronous sounds they reported online in Nature.
Don’t underestimate the benefits of a good night’s sleep
Those who got less than six hours of sleep daily were more likely to have higher levels of blood sugar a condition that can lead to diabetes. This isn’t the first study suggesting that inadequate sleep might be linked to a higher risk of blood sugar problems. In 2005 researchers reported that either too little or too much sleep was associated with diabetes (Archives of Internal Medicine Apr. Blood sugar control isn’t the only problem associated with sleep disturbances. ther research has shown that cardiovascular complications are more common when people don’t sleep well. But wait there’s more.
Breast cancer risk diminished in women who exercise often study says
The latest addition to the growing evidence on the benefits of aerobic exercise is reported in the April issue of the scientific journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. Researchers from USC’s Arnold School of Public Health studied 14000 women who were given preventive medical exams and treadmill tests at the Cooper Clinic in Houston from 1970-2001. At the time of their exams the women ages 20 through 83 had no history of breast cancer. Based on the treadmill tests the women’s fitness was classified as low moderate or high. Researchers compared the fitness levels of the 68 women in the study group who had died of breast cancer through 2003.
