  • Head of Rio lab: Security paramount for Olympic doping tests 30 Jul 2016 | 3:52 am

    Francisco Radler, director of the Brazilian Laboratory for Doping Control, talks during an interview with Reuters outside the Brazilian Laboratory of Doping Control in Rio de JaneiroBy Paulo Prada and Pedro Fonseca RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Security is the top focus for the laboratory that will conduct doping exams at the upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the lab's director said Friday, amid global scrutiny following the recent scandal surrounding Russian athletes. Citing major breaches that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) described at a Russian laboratory, chemist Francisco Radler said the lab must ensure that cheating, through infiltration by outsiders or other efforts to manipulate testing, is "impossible." In an interview with Reuters outside the new laboratory, a remote five-story building on the island campus of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Radler said a security force of about 50 people, including military police and private guards, will guard the nearly 200 local and international scientists and technicians who will conduct Olympic testing.

  • Exclusive: In Florida Zika probe, federal scientists kept at arm's length 29 Jul 2016 | 5:31 pm

    Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are seen inside Oxitec laboratory in Campinas, BrazilThe state of Florida, the first to report the arrival of Zika in the continental United States, has yet to invite a dedicated team of the federal government's disease hunters to assist with the investigation on the ground, health officials told Reuters. While Florida has a strong record of battling limited outbreaks of similar mosquito-borne viruses, including dengue and chikungunya, the risk of birth defects caused by Zika adds greater urgency to containing its spread with every available means, they say. Other states have quickly called in CDC teams to help track high-profile diseases.


  • Non-celiac 'wheat sensitivity' is an immune disorder, too 29 Jul 2016 | 4:23 pm

    By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - People who feel ill after eating wheat but who don't have celiac disease may finally have a biological explanation for their symptoms, a new study suggests. Researchers from the U.S. and Italy found that people who claim to have "wheat sensitivity" do have biological reactions to gluten proteins in wheat, rye and barley. It's just that the reactions are different from what's seen in people with celiac disease, which is also triggered by gluten.
