A new potential therapeutic agent, diphenyleneiodonium chloride (DPI) works as an inhibitor of Vitamin B2 and effectively switches off cancer stem cells, preventing their proliferation, researchers reported in the journal Aging.
A multifaceted pharmacist intervention can reduce the number of hospital readmissions and emergency department visits, according to a new study published in the Journal of JAMA Internal Medicine. A statistically significant reduced rate of readmissions after inclusion was observed in patients randomized to receive an extended pharmacist intervention compared with those who received usual care or a basic pharmacist intervention.
While palliative radiation therapy is used to ease the pain in patients with advanced lung cancer, it often has adverse effects like heartburn and difficulty swallowing. Through the PROACTIVE clinical trial, Lawson Health Research Institute scientist Dr. Alexander Louie is testing new palliative radiation techniques to spare these effects on the esophagus and improve quality of life for lung cancer patients.
