New discovery has important implications for treating common eye disease
(Trinity College Dublin) Scientists from Trinity College Dublin have made an important discovery with implications for those living with a common, debilitating eye disease (age-related macular degeneration, AMD) that can cause blindness. They have discovered that the molecule TLR2, which recognises chemical patterns associated with infection in the body, also seems to play an important role in the development of retinal degeneration. When TLR2 is removed in model systems, a degree of protection is conferred. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

No clear path for golden rice to reach consumers
(Washington University in St. Louis) Heralded as a genetically modified crop with the potential to save millions of lives, Golden Rice has just been approved as safe for human and animal consumption by regulators in the Philippines. The rice is a beta carotene-enriched crop that is intended to reduce Vitamin A deficiency (VAD), a health problem in very poor areas. But a new study finds that most families at risk for VAD can't grow Golden Rice themselves, and most commercial farmers won't grow it either. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Biofortified Crops Improve Farmers ’ Livelihoods in Zimbabwe
By Martha KatsiHARARE, Zimbabwe, Jan 27 2020 (IPS) Steven Seremwe, who is 57 years old, was retrenched from his job as an administrator at Lake Shore Missions in 2012. He decided to focus on farming, and he started growing various crops—white maize, sugar beans, and sweet potatoes, among others—for consumption and sale. “I have always loved agriculture but because of work pressures, I was not practicing. But when I got retrenched from work, I decided to follow my heart and started farming,” he said. The problem was that every farming season, even with a bumper harvest, Seremwe`s income was falling ...

They hope the scan will allow doctors to identify the signs of Alzheimer’s 20 years or more before symptoms develop.

Google ’s AI Bested Doctors in Detecting Breast Cancer in Mammograms
While there has been controversy over when and how often women should be screened for breast cancer using mammograms, studies consistently show that screening can lead to earlier detection of the disease, when it’s more treatable. So improving how effectively mammograms can detect abnormal growths that could be cancerous is a priority in the field. AI could play a role in accomplishing that—computer-based machine learning might help doctors to read mammograms more accurately.

Functional diversity of human intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells
In this study, we used a human organ donor preparation method to measure human ipRGCs’ photoresponses. We discovered three functional ipRGC subtypes with distinct sensitivities and responses to light. The response of one ipRGC subtype appeared to depend on exogenous chromophore supply, and this response is conserved in both human and mouse retinas. Rods and cones also provided input to ipRGCs; however, each subtype integrated outer retina light signals in a distinct fashion. (Source: ScienceNOW)

Cumulative evidence for association of sepsis and retinopathy of prematurity
Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a retinal vasoproliferative disease affected by multiple factors such as infection and preterm birth. The role of sepsis in the development of ROP remains controversial. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to identify the impact of sepsis on ROP. Sepsis increased the risk of any stage ROP, especially for the severe ROP. Further high-quality clinical studies are needed to eliminate heterogeneity and publication bias to validate these findings.
