New study throws into question long-held belief about depression
 By American Chemical Society   --Medical News

New evidence puts into doubt the long-standing belief that a deficiency in serotonin — a chemical messenger in the brain — plays a central role in depression. In the journal ACS Chemical Neuroscience, scientists report that mice lacking the ability to make serotonin in their brains (and thus should have been “depressed” by conventional wisdom) did not show depression-like symptoms.

Not All Lunatics Are in the Asylum
 By Dr. Gifford Jones

I’m often asked, “What have you learned as a medical journalist?” In one word “Plenty”. After writing a column for 38 years you would have to be an imbecile not to learn something about medicine, human personality and hypocrisy.

Handheld scanner could make brain tumor removal more complete, reducing recurrence
 By American Chemical Society

Cancerous brain tumors are notorious for growing back despite surgical attempts to remove them — and for leading to a dire prognosis for patients. But scientists are developing a new way to try to root out malignant cells during surgery so fewer or none get left behind to form new tumors. The method, reported in the journal ACS Nano, could someday vastly improve the outlook for patients.

Potential therapy for the Sudan strain of ebola could help contain some future outbreaks
 By American Chemical Society

Ebola is a rare, but deadly disease that exists as five strains, none of which have approved therapies. One of the most lethal strains is the Sudan ebolavirus (SUDV). Although not the strain currently devastating West Africa, SUDV has caused widespread illness, even as recently as 2012. In a new study appearing in the journal ACS Chemical Biology, researchers now report a possible therapy that could someday help treat patients infected with SUDV.
