Gaining Profound Insight Into Viral Infections

A new bioinformatics analysis method developed at the Department of Virology of Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Germany has provided us with new information regarding viral infections. The method, published in the Nature Methods, used to demonstrate that virus-infected cells produce far more infection-related proteins and peptides than previously thought.

 

Racial Disparities in the End-of-Life Care for Hematologic Cancers

In addition, racial minorities with hematologic malignancies had lower rates of advance directive documentation and received significantly more aggressive care at the end of life than white individuals with blood cancers.

Fecal Profiling: Tool To Predict Responses Of IBS

Fecal profiling of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) might provide a low-cost tool to predict the responses of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients to diet low in fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols (FODMAPs).
