    Blood test reveals whether smoking will cause COPD

    Why can some people smoke their whole life without developing either cancer or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)? This type of question lays a smokescreen about how important quitting smoking is. A new study now shows that a blood test can measure how the body reacts to the presence of cigarette smoke in the lungs. A high concentration of a specific protein in the blood is associated with a greatly increased risk of COPD – many years before the disease develops. The researchers hope that this test can become a regular part of a health check-up and thereby help to motivate smokers to quit their risky habit.

    Understanding unexplained low blood sugar in children: More than normal variation

    Low blood sugar in children is often unexplained despite intense investigation into hormone Imbalances and inborn errors of cell metabolism. Despite its frequency, very little progress has been made in understanding this disease entity since 1964, where it was first named idiopathic ketotic hypoglycemia (IKH). Researchers from University of Southern Denmark and Odense University Hospital, Denmark, have now identified mutations in four novel genes that appear to explain IKH.
