(Karolinska Institutet) Researchers at Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden have compared the ability of three different artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to identify breast cancer based on previously taken mammograms. The best algorithm proved to be as accurate as the average radiologist. The results, published in JAMA Oncology, may lead the way in reorganising breast cancer screening for the future.

(Karolinska Institutet) Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden found industrial chemicals in the organs of fetuses conceived decades after many countries had banned the substances. In a study published in the journal Chemosphere, the researchers urge decision makers to consider the combined impact of the mix of chemicals that accumulate in people and nature.

(Karolinska Institutet) Most countries have not introduced nationwide prostate-cancer screening, as current methods result in overdiagnoses and excessive and unnecessary biopsies. A new study by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, which is published in The New England Journal of Medicine, indicates that screening by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and targeted biopsies could potentially cut overdiagnoses by half. The results are presented today at the European Association of Urology Congress.

(Karolinska Institutet) MRSA skin infections are often treated with intravenous injection of antibiotics, which can cause significant side effects and promote the development of resistant bacterial strains. To solve these problems, researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden are developing a microneedle patch that delivers antibiotics directly into the affected skin area. New results published in Advanced Materials Technologies show that the microneedle patch effectively reduces MRSA bacteria in the skin.

(Karolinska Institutet) Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have developed, in collaboration with researchers in Germany and the US, new small antibodies, also known as nanobodies, which prevent the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus from entering human cells. The research study, published in Science, shows that a combined nanobody had a particularly good effect - even if the virus mutated. According to the researchers, the nanobodies have the potential to be developed into a treatment for COVID-19.

(Karolinska Institutet) Low levels of serotonin in the brain are seen as a possible cause of depression and many antidepressants act by blocking a protein that transports serotonin away from the nerve cells. A brain imaging study at Karolinska Institutet now shows that the average level of the serotonin transporter increased in a group of 17 individuals who recovered from depression after cognitive behavioural therapy. The results are published in the journal Translational Psychiatry.

the Criticism against her is misleading, writes Wallberg in an op-ed in Today's News.

on Monday unveiled the Stone Heckschers its report on the Karolinska institutet KI actions in the case of skandalkirurgen Paolo Macchiarini.

the Report contained sharp criticism of the responsible for the university.

Our personal space guides our hands when we reach out, causes us to duck when objects hurtle towards us and makes us acutely aware of the world around us.

And now, for the first time, scientists have found a way to help us feel it.

In the classic version, participants are shown a fake rubber hand while their own hand is hidden behind a screen.

After a few minutes of simultaneous stroking of both the real and fake hands, the person s brain starts to believe that the fake hand is actually their own.

In the new study, which involved 101 adults, scientists repeated the test but applied brushstrokes in mid-air above the fake hand, rather than touching it.

But in this version, they also started to sense what feels like a force field between the brush and the rubber hand.

A study at the Karolinska Institutet (KI) shows that the infant immune system develops dramatically during the first few weeks after birth.

What surprised the researchers was how similar the performance was between the various children in the study.

With new technology, researchers have been able to follow the newborn child and how they adapt to the world outside the mother's womb.

for The first time, identifying how the immune system changes during the first weeks of life.

"It seems that all the children follow the same pattern, in which their immune system responds with exactly the same sequence of dramatic changes.

the Study from the Karolinska institute in stockholm has found an important step for a new diabetes treatment.

One of the building blocks in kalciumkanalerna in insulin-beta cells have an important role in the regulation of blood sugar levels, according to a study at the Karolinska institutet (KI) in Solna, sweden.

Insulin-beta cells produces the hormone insulin that regulates blood sugar levels in the body.

But in diabetes the beta cells completely or partially lost its function.

When the blood sugar rises, it leads to that the levels of calcium ions increases in the beta-cells, which stimulates the release of insulin.

"Our findings suggest that precisely this building block of kalciumkanalen can become a new target for the treatment of diabetes", says Per-Olof Berggren, who leads the research at the karolinska institutet, in a news release.

Many teens and young adults in Sweden use anti-anxiety medication for longer than recommended, according to a study from Karolinska institutet.

– The high percentage who receive benzodiazepines printed over a longer period of time is alarming, " says Anna Sidorchuk, an epidemiologist at the karolinska institutet and the study's lead author, to the SR Echo.

A third of people aged 18-24 years who are treated with benzodiazepines, and got it printed over six months at a stretch.

the Funds should preferably not be used longer than four weeks, in accordance with Swedish and international recommendations.

the Study is based on the years 2006-2013, but the results are in line with the statistics from later years, according to the health Board, working with an evaluation.

" We see the worrying, in the development of depression and anxiety in children and young people.
