Research used neuroimaging techniques to analyze the brains of more than 3,800 volunteers in different countries. The largest study of its kind ever conducted set out to investigate anatomical similarities and differences in the brains of individuals with different types of epilepsy and to seek markers that could help with prognosis and treatment. The study was published in the journal Brain.

In the study, researchers conducted a large randomized phase 3 trial to explain combination immunotherapy could be a new standard of care for some patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC)
Present study explains that Osteoclast secretion SLIT3 plays an osteoprotective role by synchronously stimulating bone formation and inhibiting bone resorption, making it a potential therapeutic target for metabolic bone diseases
The main objective of the study is to characterize toxicities observed with palbociclib resulting in dose modifications and prescriber preferences in modifying palbociclib dosage in response to treatment-related toxicities outside the context of a clinical trial
According to French researchers, intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) medications in general do not appear to increase the risk of extraocular hemorrhagic or other adverse events, though questions remain
In the study, researchers said that women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) should be given more advice about pregnancy so they can make informed choices about whether to have a family or not
In the advanced study, UCLA neuroscientists could lead to a better understanding of astrocytes, a star-shaped brain cell believed to play a key role in neurological disorders like Lou Gehrig's, Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease
A study estimated that the well-known hazards of space freezing temperatures, crushing pressures, isolation astronauts also face risks from radiation, which can cause illness or injure organs. Though not believed to be an imminent threat to current missions, astronauts may one day face radiation from solar winds and galactic cosmic rays. The study was published in Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance.
In the research, scientists explained careful monitoring without empiric antibiotics appears safe for well-appearing infants born to mothers with chorioamnionitis
Researchers have shown that mifepristone, a drug currently FDA-approved for chemical abortion, prevent the growth of vestibular schwannoma (also known as acoustic neuroma) cells. This sometimes-lethal intracranial tumor typically causes hearing loss and tinnitus. The study was published in Scientific Reports.
Researchers could observe live and in real-time that the human body responds to often lethal fungal blood infections in the lung. In the study, the fungal infection Candida albicans was introduced to mice or human models of the lung vasculature, and as blood was pumped over that system, researchers recorded using highly sophisticated microscopes. The study was published in Cell Host & Microbe.
