Association Between Place Of Residence And Heart Failure Risk

According to new study, researchers have conducted comparative study i.e., census tract data on socioeconomic deprivation, a collection of neighborhood-level variables of wealth, education, occupation and housing patterns and heart failure rates among 27,078 middle-aged participants from South-eastern states. This study is published in American Heart Association journal, Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

Newly Solved Glucagon Receptor Structure Offers Drug Design

According to new study, scientists at SIMM determined the crystal structure of GCGR in complex with a glucagon analogue and partial agonist NNC1702. This structure reveals, for the first time, the molecular details of a class B GPCR binding to its peptide ligand at high resolution and unexpectedly discloses the structural complexity that governs receptor activation, so significantly expanding the understanding of class B GPCR signal transduction. The study was published in Nature.

Adjuvant RT Plus Chemotherapy Improve LRFS

A new study published in the journal JAMA surgery reported that adjuvant chemotherapy plus radiotherapy is associated with significant improvements in locoregional recurrence–free survival and favorable cancer control outcomes compared with chemotherapy alone.

Novel Treatment for Leukemia Patients

According to new research by Queen Mary University of London, patients with an aggressive form of leukemia, currently ineligible for any type of targeted therapy, could benefit from some of the new drugs. The study findings published in the Nature journal Leukemia.
