Characteristics of lung cancers arising in genetic mutation carriers

Characteristics of lung cancers arising in genetic mutation carriers

Two studies are providing new insight into germline epidermal growth factor receptor ( EGFR ) T790M mutation in familial non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The findings suggest the need for tailored approaches for early detection and treatment, as well as for genetic testing to identify carriers. Continue reading

Into the mind of the common fruit fly

Into the mind of the common fruit fly

ScienceDaily (Sep. 25, 2012) — Although they’re a common nuisance in the home, fruit flies have made great contributions to research in genetics and developmental biology. Now a Tel Aviv University researcher is again turning to this everyday pest to answer crucial questions about how neurons function at a cellular level — which may uncover the secrets of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease Continue reading

Herbal medicine treatment reduces inflammation in allergen-induced asthma, study suggests

ScienceDaily (June 30, 2011) — Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) using a traditional Korean medicine, SO-CHEONG-RYONG-TANG (SCRT) that has long been used for the treatment of allergic diseases in Asia, found that SCRT treatment alleviates asthma-like pulmonary inflammation via suppression of specific chemokines or proteins. These findings appear online in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology . Continue reading

Breast cancers found between mammograms more likely to be aggressive

Breast cancers found between mammograms more likely to be aggressive

ScienceDaily (May 3, 2011) — Breast cancers that are first detectable in the interval between screening mammograms are more likely to be aggressive, fast-growing tumors according to a study published online May 3rd in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Other studies have shown that cancers diagnosed between mammograms, known as interval cancers, tend to have a worse prognosis than those detected during routine screening. Continue reading

Kidney transplants are faring better than previously reported, long-term study shows

Kidney transplants are faring better than previously reported, long-term study shows

ScienceDaily (Apr. 7, 2011) — A new study from Mayo Clinic, the largest long-term study of kidney transplant recipients published to date, demonstrates that progressive damage to kidney transplants may be less common and less severe than previously reported. The study, involving 797 patients transplanted between 1998 and 2004 and followed for at least five years, shows that 87 percent of patients have mild or no signs of progressive scar damage to the transplanted organ when biopsied at one year after transplant Continue reading
