Fewer than half of US clinical trials have complied with the law on reporting results, despite new regulations. High rates of non-compliance found in the new study likely reflect the lack of enforcement by regulators, and they call for trial sponsors to be held to account by the FDA.

Soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes but also causes neurological changes, a new study in mice shows. Given it is the most widely consumed oil in the US (fast food, packaged foods, fed to livestock), its adverse effects on brain genes could have important public health ramifications.

Minors seeking abortion without parental consent (in states that require it) face denial and humiliation in court. This study demonstrates that young people are harmed by the denial of judicial bypass, which effectively eliminates access to abortion, with potentially life-long impacts.

Scientists unexpectedly witness wolf puppies play fetch. The remarkable ability to interpret human cues that enables a dog to go for a ball and bring it back also exists in wolves. Wolf puppies showing human-directed behavior could have had a selective advantage in early stages of dog domestication.
