Infants who develop eczema are more likely to develop food allergies, hay fever, and asthma as they grow older, a progression known as the atopic march. They identified itching and dry cracked skin of eczema patients as a significant promoter of the atopic march. Moisturizers, especially early in a child's life, may help prevent eczema, food allergies and other allergic diseases.

Osteosarcoma (OS) is genetically similar in dogs and human children, according to the results. TGen and Tufts researchers sequenced the genomes of 59 dogs, finding that canine OS shares many of the genomic features of the human OS, including low mutation rates, structural complexity, altered cellular pathways, and unique genetic features of metastatic tumors that spread to other parts of the body.

A new study has concluded that people who wear a hearing aid for age-related hearing problems maintain better brain function over time than those who do not. The findings provide early evidence that encouraging people to wear an effective hearing aid may help to protect their brains and reduce their risk of dementia.

Ayah Qassem Shqair, et al. investigated the association between screen-time behavior and diet, including a potentially cariogenic diet, in children younger than 12 years old. They concluded that there may be an association between sedentary behavior, particularly television viewing, and an unhealthy diet in young people involving increased intake of cariogenic foods.

Investigators tried to estimate the additive genetic, maternal, and environmental effects in ASD. Based on population data from 5 countries, the heritability of ASD was estimated to be approximately 80%, indicating that the variation in ASD occurrence in the population is mostly owing to inherited genetic influences, with no support for contribution from maternal effects.

Stephen Lam, et al.explored the associations between aerobic fitness, as determined objectively by preoperative cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPEX), and 30-day morbidity after esophagectomy. They found that the exercise testing variables were not associated with 30-day complications after esophagectomy. The findings did not support the use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing as an isolated preoperative screening tool to predict short-term morbidity after esophagectomy.
