Outbreak of paralyzing disease linked to non-polio enterovirus  

Using multiple genomic sequencing tests, TGen identified a specific non-polio enterovirus -- EV-D68 -- among at least four children, according to a new study. The finding is significant because AFM cases are continuing to increase and there has been no official recognition that this disease is being caused by EV-D68, which limits the research community's ability to develop preventative measures, such as new vaccines.

Does 'Planet Nine' Exist? Astronomers Say An Unseen Disk of Icy Space Rocks May Explain Things  

For years, some astronomers have suspected that a planet lies beyond Neptune's orbit in the far reaches of our solar system — a mysterious, giant planet dubbed "Planet Nine." That theory is based on the strange orbital motions of small, distant worlds that behave like some unseen object is influencing their movements. But now a group of researchers has come up with another way to explain these orbital oddities. In research published in the Astronomical Journal, the team suggests t...

Preclinical detection of prions has proven difficult, but new research suggests skin samples hold early signs of prion disease that precede neurologic symptoms.
