Evidence-based care eliminates racial disparity in colon cancer survival rates, study finds
A new study finds that equitable delivery of evidence-based care eliminates the racial disparity in colon-cancer survival rates.
Telomere extension turns back aging clock in cultured human cells, study finds
Researchers delivered a modified RNA that encodes a telomere-extending protein to cultured human cells. Cell proliferation capacity was dramatically increased, yielding large numbers of cells for study.
Many of state's smallest babies not referred for follow-up care, study finds
California babies who weigh less than 3.3 pounds at birth are supposed to be sent to a high-risk follow-up program when they go home from the hospital, but many of them may never get a referral.
Environment, not genes, plays starring role in human immune variation, study finds
Improving gene-sequencing technologies have focused immunologists’ attention on the role of genes in diseases. But it appears the environment is an even greater factor in the human immune response.
Researchers isolate stem cell that gives rise to bones, cartilage in mice
The discovery of a skeletal stem cell in mice sets the stage for new methods to grow cartilage and bone for use in medical therapies.
New version of common antibiotic could eliminate risk of hearing loss, study finds
A study in mice has found that a commonly used antibiotic can be modified to eliminate the risk that it will cause hearing loss.
Newly identified molecular network in brain implicated in autism, researchers say
Some cases of autism may be caused by a dysfunctional corpus callosum, resulting in poor communication between brain hemispheres, a new study suggests.
Skin patch could help heal, prevent diabetic ulcers, study finds
Researchers knew that a drug administered to remove iron from the blood could also overcome diabetic interference with blood vessel formation, but finding the right way to deliver it for this use was the challenge.
Stem cells faulty in Duchenne muscular dystrophy, researchers find
In a mouse model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, muscle stem cells express connective-tissue genes associated with fibrosis and muscle weakness, according to a new study.
Medicare payment reform saves money, helps patients, study finds
Researchers have found evidence that Medicare reimbursement reform has reduced the incidence of easily preventable, hospital-acquired health problems.
