Lung cancer is the third most common type of cancer in Germany and the disease affects both men and women. However, immunotherapies are successful in only 20% of cases. Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now discovered a special mechanism that regulates tumor growth in lung cancer. This opens up new possibilities in the treatment of lung cancer patients. The results were published in the journal Oncoimmunology.
A new research shows that restoring hearing is not just about regenerating the lost outer hair cells. The loss of tiny cells in the inner ear, known as "hair cells," is a leading cause of hearing loss, a public health problem affecting at least one out of three people over the age of 65. Of the two varieties of hair cells, the "outer hair cells" act as micromotors that amplify incoming sound, and the "inner hair cells" act to sense and transmit information about the sound to the brain. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
President Donald Trump, armed with the expertise of staff seasoned in the ways of the drug industry, unveiled his blueprint to address sky-high drug prices Friday afternoon, promising that increasing industry competition will help Americans save at the pharmacy counter.
By adapting pattern recognition techniques used to assess satellite images, scientists have devised a novel way to diagnose blinding eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration
Research has shown that a developing child's brain structure and function can be adversely affected when the child is raised in an environment lacking adequate education, nutrition and access to health care. While the impact of such an environment on children is relatively well understood, a new study from The University of Texas at Dallas examines an effect that is not so clear the relationship of socioeconomic status(SES) to brain function and anatomy in adults. The study was publsihed in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In a 10-patient cohort study led by Dr. Jean Roy (hematologist and professor at the Faculty of Medicine of Université de Montréal) that aims to understand how to mitigate the risks associated with the treatment of multiple myeloma, malignant cancer, researchers have adopted an innovative approach.
Romosozumab shows smaller benefits for increasing bone mineral density (BMD) in the second year of treatment compared to the first, new research suggests
According to researchers factors aside from installation of polymethylmethacrylate might have accounted for the observed clinical improvement after vertebroplasty. Older patients with one to three recent painful osteoporotic vertebral fractures who had a vertebroplasty or a sham procedure reported similar pain relief over the following year. These results do not support percutaneous vertebroplasty as standard pain treatment in patients with acute osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. The study was published in BMJ.
Therapies that recruit the immune system to attack tumors are revolutionizing cancer care. Among these successful immunotherapies is a class known as "checkpoint inhibitors" that unmask tumors' ability to hide from the immune system.
According to a Vanderbilt study, children who underwent cardiac surgery were less likely to develop acute kidney injury (AKI) if they had been treated with acetaminophen in the first 48 hours after their procedures
Researchers have made a breakthrough in the visualization of human brain tissue at the microscopic level. The study was published in Nature Communications. For understanding the brain function, scientists need to map the nerve cells (neurons) are wired to form circuitries in both healthy and disease states. Traditionally, this was accomplished by thinly slicing brain tissue and tracing the cut nerve fibers over many sections.
