Researchers have devised a new technique to isolate aggressive cells thought to form the root of many hard-to-treat metastasized cancers — a significant step toward developing new drugs that might target these cells.

A small desktop blood test may improve the treatment of patients with candidemia by shortening the time it takes to detect Candida and identify the species responsible for infection compared with blood cultures, researchers found.
A new study published in the journal CANCER reveals that many patients with breast cancer have misconceptions and fears about radiation therapy, but their actual experiences with modern breast radiation therapy are better than they expected. In the study, most patients agreed that their initial negative impressions were unfounded.
All adolescents should undergo screening for depression annually, according to the American Academy of Paediatrics’ new guidelines entitled "Guidelines for Adolescent Depression in Primary Care (GLAD-PC): Part I. Practice Preparation, Identification, Assessment, and Initial Management," by the GLAD-PC Steering group.
The researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology have shown that they can grow dormant human malaria parasites in engineered human liver tissue for several weeks, allowing them to closely study how the parasite becomes dormant, what vulnerabilities it may have, and how it springs back to life.
A multicenter continuation of a phase 3 study confirmed that long-term treatment with belimumab in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is safe and efficacious, according to a study published in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatology.
According to a study published in the journal Anesthesiology, for adults undergoing surgical procedures under general anesthesia, an intraoperative decision support system with real-time visualization can improve process measures, but not clinical outcomes.
Scientists have carried out a mass dog vaccination in Chad and determined its effect on human rabies exposure. The study employed a bio-mathematical method for estimating the transmission dynamics of rabies. The researchers conclude that with political will and the necessary funding, elimination of rabies is possible in Africa.
The study aims to investigate the prevalence of heart attack, angina pectoris, stroke, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, COPD, asthma, and obesity in relation to the presence and severity of OSA.
Scientists at The Wistar Institute have found a novel mechanism through which mutant p53 enhances metastasis by controlling tumor metabolism. The research, published in the journal Genes & Development, also revealed how this process is influenced by a naturally occurring p53 gene variant.
Our bodies are not just passively growing older. Cells and tissues continuously use information from our environments—and from each other—to actively coordinate the aging process. A new study from the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute now reveals how some of that cross-talk between tissues occurs in a common model organism.
