New research published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine reported that a drug ibrutinib, approved to treat chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) might be less effective in a particular subset of patients.
A research team led by University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital videotaped 237 mothers and children who were seated alone in a room and presented with different types of foods, including chocolate cupcakes. The study findings were published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
Penn Medicine will conduct the Northeast's first clinical trial of uterine transplants, to provide women with Uterine Factor Infertility (UFI), with a new path to parenthood. A woman with UFI cannot carry a pregnancy either because she was born without a uterus, has had the organ surgically removed, or has a uterus that does not function properly. The Uterine Transplantation for Uterine Factor Infertility (UNTIL) trial is the third of its kind in the U.S.
Elderly patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) showed improved overall survival when treated with the combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy compared to definitive radiation alone. The study was published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology,
Neuro Kinetics, Inc. (NKI), the global leader in clinical eye tracking and neural functional assessments, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently awarded it three more patents , increasing NKI's patent count to twenty two (22 ).
According to a new study published in JAMA Surgery, older people have higher rates of complications from surgery compared to younger adults. However, many problems can be avoided by intervening with assessments and risk-reduction strategies before, during and after procedures.
Between February and November 2016, the Institute of Medical Microbiology at the University of Zurich discovered a multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis in eight refugees arriving in Europe from the Horn of Africa. The analyses provided an impulse for launching a transnational investigation and developing a pan-European alerting system.
A team of Yale researchers tested a new chemical compound that suppresses HIV, protects immune cells, and remains effective for weeks with a single dose.
In animal experiments, the compound proved to be a promising new candidate to enhance current HIV treatment regimens — without increasing toxic side effects, a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reported.
Researchers from Kumamoto University found that AgNPs have a propensity to conglomerate, which results in a reduction of antibacterial attributes. They solved the conglomeration problem by coating the nanoparticles with gold. This study was published in the Royal Society of Chemistry Journal Nanoscale.
An acute viral infection usually results in full recovery and effective immune memory, but chronic viruses evade the immune system and remain permanently in the host's body. Treating such viruses is a difficult task, as the molecular events during the development of a chronic infection remain largely elusive. So a new study published in PLOS Pathogens made an important contribution to the understanding of chronic viral infections.
For veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the shock of noise and light may trigger a deeply learned expectation of danger. Scientists at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (VTCRI) have found that people with PTSD have an increased learning response to surprising events. While most everyone reacts to surprise, people with PTSD tend to pay even more attention to the unexpected. The study was published in the journal eLife
