A City of Hope scientist has discovered a gene-editing technology that could efficiently and accurately correct the genetic defects that underlie certain diseases, positioning the new tool as the basis for the next generation of genetic therapies

State minister for health Zahid Maleque said that the state of cancer treatment in Bangladesh was ‘poor’, which led the government to decide setting up cancer hospitals in eight divisions across the country. He said that at least 5,000 beds were needed for cancer patients in the country but there were currently only 500 beds for cancer treatment.
Adverse events (AEs) remain high among pediatric inpatients and are "substantially higher" among children in teaching hospitals and those with chronic conditions, a study has found. More than half of AEs were preventable
Boosting efforts to fight antibiotic resistance, researchers have found that a thin membrane, thought to be just a shrink wrap around some bacterial cell walls, has structural properties critical for survival. Drugs that destroy the membrane could be a new approach to treating the infection.
Researchers have conducted one of the largest surveys of people's first memories, finding that nearly 40% of people had a first memory which is fictional. Current research indicates that people's earliest memories date from around three to three-and-a-half years of age.
They found that 38.6% of a survey of 6,641 people claimed to have memories from two or younger, with 893 people claiming memories from one or younger. This was particularly prevalent among middle-aged and older adults. The study was published in the journal Psychological Science.
In elderly patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer, "bladder-sparing" trimodal therapy costs much more than radical cystectomy and is associated with significantly lower survival, according to a retrospective study
Biodiversity is disappearing at an alarming rate as infectious diseases increasingly spill over from wildlife to humans. Disease ecologists fervently debate whether biodiversity loss leads to an increased disease risk. Now, a University of Montana researcher has published a new study with some answers.
According to a study, researchers examined the endogenous circadian system, behavioral cycle, and circadian misalignment have distinct effects on insulin sensitivity and β-cell function. The study was published online in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism.
Patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) treated at higher-volume facilities survive longer than those treated at lower-volume facilities, according to a registry-based analysis
Scientists have produced pigs that can resist one of the world's most costly animal diseases, by changing their genetic code. Tests with the virus — called Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome, or PRRS — found the pigs do not become infected at all. The animals show no signs that the change in their DNA has had any other impact on their health or wellbeing.
