Researchers at the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators Network (PALISI) today published treatment guidelines for managing the (CAR) T-cell therapy for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in the online issue of Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology.
Bariatric surgery is associated with a lower risk for microvascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes, new research suggests. The findings were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine by Rebecca O'Brien, MD, of Kaiser Permanente Medical Group, California, and colleagues.
When people produce excessive amounts of urine – more than three litres each day in adults is considered too much – doctors often find it difficult to establish a diagnosis under certain circumstances.
An examination of research on oral health, commissioned by the World Health Organisation, has indicated that for oral health we should stick to whole grain carbohydrates and avoid processed ones, especially if sweet.
Seattle Children's has opened a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell immunotherapy trial for children and young adults with relapsed or refractory non-central nervous system EGFR-expressing solid tumors.
Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research and collaborators have identified a way to expand blood-forming, adult stem cells from human umbilical cord blood (hUCB).
Many hospitalized patients, especially older adults, are at risk of developing delirium, a risk that is increased by the presence of cognitive, functional, visual or hearing impairment or depression.
In a new study, researchers have developed key aspects of the aging of human cells can be reversed by new compounds developed at the University of Exeter. In a laboratory study of endothelial cells – which line the inside of blood vessels researchers tested compounds designed to target mitochondria (the "power stations" of cells).
In the samples used in the study, the number of senescent cells (older cells that have deteriorated and stopped dividing) was reduced by up to 50%. The Exeter team also identified two splicing factors (a component of cells) that play a key role in when and how endothelial cells become senescent. The study was published in the journal Aging.
Researchers have discovered the role of macromolecular telomere structure in chromosome end protein, with implications for conditions ranging from cancer to aging and heart disease. Telomeres are DNA segments at the ends of every human chromosome. As we age, telomere length naturally decreases. Over the course of a lifetime, telomere shortening instructs aging cells to stop dividing.
