A warning on taking ibuprofen during pregnancy

A new study conducted by Inserm researchers at Irset (Institute of Research in Environmental and Occupational Health)[1] shows that ibuprofen is liable to cause disruptions in the hormone system in the human foetal testis, with possible implications for the development of the male urogenital tract. This drug suppresses the production of various testicular hormones, including testosterone, which controls the primary and secondary sex characteristics and the descent of the testes. These effects are obtained at doses similar to the standard dosage. These results are published in Scientific Reports.

Voluntary eye movements, a new indicator of postural control in Parkinson disease ?

Postural instability is the main factor associated with falls in patients with Parkinson disease, but there are other symptoms, such eye disorders. Teams from Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, AP-HP, and the Brain and Spine Institute (Inserm, CNRS, UPMC) have examined the link between these eye disorders observed in some patients and postural instability. Their results demonstrate a potential new marker of posture control in Parkinson disease. These results are published in the journal Neurology.

Lack of sleep causes brain impairment in adolescents

Not sleeping enough or going to bed too late leads to a reduction in the volume of grey matter in the brains of adolescents. These conclusions were obtained by researchers at Inserm Unit 1000, “Neuroimaging and Psychiatry” (Inserm/Paris-Descartes University/Paris Sud University), who studied the brain and sleep habits of 177 14-year-old students. This work is published in the journal Scientific Reports, and received support from the Academy of Finland.
