A new study reported that using multi-level negative binomial regression to account for over-dispersion of data, this study demonstrated statistical modelling that will allow for a more refined understanding of the influence of patient, physician, practice and jurisdictional levels on referrals.

Genomic landscape of cell-free DNA in patients with colorectal cancer article published in Cancer Discovery journal highlights how liquid biopsy techniques, which apply genomic sequencing of circulating DNA isolated from a small vial of blood, can effectively detect cellular mutations in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients.
According to new research presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists PRACTICE MANAGEMENT meeting, colorectal and bariatric surgery patients benefited from an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program, leaving the hospital sooner and requiring fewer opioids to control pain.
A strain of bacteria commonly found in milk and beef may be a trigger for developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in people who are genetically at risk, according to a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology.
A new study reported that Samples collected with microFLOQ® swabs and direct amplification of DNA with GlobalFiler™ Express appears to allow for low quantities of DNA to be typed in a facile and expeditious manner. The results of the study potentially may have important implications for the analysis of low quantity and/or degraded samples that plague forensic casework.
A University of Colorado Cancer Center study lays the scientific groundwork for the use of PD-1 inhibitors with an aggressive form of brain cancer , namely s upratentorial pediatric ependymoma . The study findings were published in the journal Pediatric Blood Cancers
Injecting breast cancer with oxygen-filled microbubbles makes tumors three-times more sensitive to radiation therapy and improves survival in animal models of the disease. The study in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology* Biology* Physics (IJROBP) makes a strong case for moving this technology into clinical trials with breast cancer patients.
Researchers to investigate the safety , cost-effectiveness, and clinical outcomes of bilateral total knee arthroplasty ( TKA ) in hemophilic arthropathy ( HA ), the requirements for transfusions, complications, costs, hospital stays, Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) knee scores, knee range of motion ( ROM ) and revision rates were compared between bilateral bilateral and unilateral TKA in HA patients.
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University , identified a specific brain region – the medial prefrontal cortex – as being particularly important for some of the respiratory and cognitive abnormalities seen in Rett syndrome. The study used a Rett mouse model to show activating neurons in this region can reverse breathing and memory abnormalities in symptomatic animals.
Children exposed to or infected with HIV in utero may have worse neurodevelopmental outcomes than those who were not exposed to the virus during gestation, researchers suggest. The findings are reported online in Pediatrics
Researchers aimed to develop a potent MMP probe , specifically targeting MMP-12 and MMP-9, based on ML5 for noninvasive COPD imaging with PET . As attachment of the 18 F-fluorobenzoyl moiety Decreased the affinity of ML5 Toward MMP-12, we selected another prosthetic agent for radiofluorination, 4-nitrophenyl 2- Namely 18 F-fluoropropionate ( 18 F-NFP ) .
