Researchers have managed for the first time to differentiate human inner ear cells in a laboratory from somatic progenitors and to investigate their origin. This will make it possible to develop new treatment methods for hearing impairment in the future. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
Emergency management of trauma practically begins prior to the arrival of the patient to the emergency room (ER). The emergency medical service (EMS) providers inform the emergency department about the mechanism of trauma and update them regarding the vital sign values, suspected injuries and first aid treatments provided to the patient. The emergency team is activated and the concerned specialties involved in the management of polytrauma patients are informed beforehand.
Verastem, Inc. (Nasdaq: VSTM) (Verastem Oncology or the Company), focused on developing and commercializing medicines to improve the survival and quality of life of cancer patients.
Higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet (MeDi) is associated with a reduced risk for incident advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to a study recently published in Ophthalmology
Human stem cells seem to have an almost unlimited potential to advance disease treatment and prevention in the near future. While their study has been somewhat controversial at times, scientists around the world are excited about the possibilities that stem cells present.
Researchers from Australia report the most in-depth study ever of how human stem cells can be turned into heart cells. Researchers measured changes in gene activity in tens of thousands of individual cells as they move through the stages of heart development. The study was published in Cell Stem Cell.
A twist on the molecular mechanism of how a new cancer drug works could aid in better identifying the best treatments for patients for an array of cancers. The team identified over 500 sites in DNA that require an enzyme called ATR checkpoint kinase to not break when they are replicated. The finding is described in Molecular Cell in a study led by Eric J. Brown.
Dr. Christopher Rao jumped out of his office chair. He'd just learned an elderly patient at high risk of falling was resisting his advice to go to an inpatient rehabilitation facility following a hip fracture.
Men and women who had a major osteoporotic fracture — defined as a hip, spine, forearm, or humerus fracture — had a greater risk for this outcome during the next 25 years than their peers who had not had a fracture
Chemotherapy drugs to treat breast cancer may promote muscle mitochondrial dysfunction. Dysfunctional mitochondria, the energy centers of the cells, may contribute to fatigue and weakness that some people with breast cancer experience through the course of disease treatment. The study was published in the American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology.
While most oncologists would agree that exercise is important for people with cancer, generic guidelines for this population do not address the high need for personalized exercises. They recently shared with The Lancet Oncology journal a clinical tool that he and his colleagues at Princess Margaret Hospital developed to respond to the high demand for exercise services by oncology patients and clinicians.
