New Research Points to Amino Acid Chain as Possible Cancer, Lung Disease Treatment Target

Researchers will explore how endothelin, an amino acid chain secreted by the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels, plays a role in cancer progression and lung disease sometimes caused by cancer treatment. The researchers are meeting at the Seventeenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-17), hosted and organized by the American Physiological Society (APS).

Are childhood cancers different? Understanding the immune response to tumors in pediatric neuroblastoma

UChicago Medicine physician-scientists aimed to find out how the immune systems of children with a type of cancer called neuroblastoma respond to tumors. The answer to this question could help guide the treatment of pediatric patients.

How high-fat diets allow cancer cells to go unnoticed

A high-fat diet increases the incidence of colorectal cancer. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Fellow Semir Beyaz and collaborators from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have discovered that in mice, fat disrupts the relationship between intestinal cells and the immune cells that patrol them looking for emerging tumors.

A bigger nursery for the solar system’s first formed solids

The earliest solids formed in the solar system give clues to what radioactive species were made by the young sun, and which ones were inherited. By studying isotopic variations of the elements vanadium (V) and strontium (Sr), an international team of researchers including scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found that those variations are not caused by irradiation from the sun but are produced by condensation and evaporation reactions in the early solar system.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Announces New Early-Career Physician Research Program in Cancer Science

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) today announced a $25 million gift from Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. to create the Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. Physician Scholars Program. Designed to support the innovative research of physician-scientists who are early in their career at MSK, the Gerstner Physician Scholars Program will advance promising scientific research and further the careers of outstanding junior faculty.

باحثو مايو يربطون بين الحَيُّوم الدقيق للأمعاء ومآل مرض التهاب المفاصل الروماتويدي

لقد وجدت الدراسة، المنشورة في مجلة طب الجينوم، أن التنبؤ بمآل مرض التهاب المفاصل الروماتويدي للمريض قد يكون ممكنًا من خلال التركيز على تريليونات البكتيريا والفيروسات والفطريات التي تعيش في السبيل المَعدي المَعوي، والمعروفة باسم الحَيُّوم الدقيق للأمعاء

Addressing Systemic Inequities Linked to Readmission Disparities for Minority Stroke Patients

Racial minorities are disproportionately affected by stroke, with Black patients experiencing worse post-stroke outcomes than White patients. Racial disparities in stroke outcomes have been linked to suboptimal control of risk factors such as hypertension, lack of access to health care, and decreased utilization of neurologic services. However, it was previously unknown if outcomes for Black ischemic stroke patients were affected by care settings with insufficient nursing resources.

Researchers Discover New Side Channel Attack on Low-End Phones

Georgia Tech researchers have recently discovered a new side channel attack that is effective on a wide range of low-end phones. All that’s needed for the attack to work is to place a sensor close to the phone, for example, under the coffee table where the phone is sitting. If the sensor bears witness to a single secure transaction, like a bank login, then the attacker can immediately break the user’s encryption and forge their digital signature.
