Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration took new steps as part of its broader efforts to address the opioid crisis by approving the final Opioid Analgesic Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS). This new plan includes several measures to help better communicate the serious risks about the use of opioid pain medications to patients […]Continue Reading ...
TUESDAY, Sept. 18, 2018 — Thousands of Americans struggling with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may have a new treatment option to help them breathe easier. COPD, which is often linked to smoking, is a progressive deterioration of lung function that involves a combination of bronchitis and emphysema symptoms. It’s the third leading cause of […]Continue Reading ...
By creating a new twist on fiber optic sensors, researchers in China have developed a smart, flexible photoacoustic imaging technique that may have potential applications in wearable devices, instrumentation and medical diagnostics. Lead researcher Long Jin from the Institute of Photonics Technology at Jinan University in Guangzhou will present the new fiber laser-based ultrasound sensor […]Continue Reading ...
At Stanford’s medical school, where the majority of medical students opt to add a year or more to their studies to incorporate research, a new curriculum now offers a more flexible and financially enticing way for them to do so. The new Discovery Curriculum is the result of a three-year review spurred by a group […]Continue Reading ...

Sep 14 2018 In an international collaboration between MedUni Vienna, Semmelweis University in Budapest, the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm and Yale University in the USA, researchers have identified a new process in the brain that is responsible for the delayed stress response and the long-term effects of stress: with a delay of 10 minutes after […]Continue Reading ...
Current WSU research shows stimuli-responsive nanoparticles can specifically target infections to simultaneously prevent the spread of bacteria and reduce the inflammation it causes. These microscopic particles are loaded with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents which are released when the particles encounter infection in the body. Researchers in the lab of Pharmaceutical Sciences Assistant Professor Zhenjia Wang […]Continue Reading ...
Celltrion, Inc. signed an ‘Incubation’ agreement with Emory University in Atlanta to support the research and development of new drug candidates for atherosclerosis. ‘Incubation’ agreement is one of the open innovation measures by which a company provides its internal resources and capabilities, such as research space and facility, manpower and business operation consulting, to an […]Continue Reading ...
Source: Getty Images In a phase 2 clinical trial, an investigational anti-inflammatory drug called ibudilast was found to be superior to placebo in slowing the progression of brain atrophy in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis. The study, conducted at 28 sites around the country, including Columbia University Irving Medical Center, was published last month in […]Continue Reading ...
Bacteria are master engineers of small, biologically useful molecules. A new study in Nature Communications has revealed one of the tricks of this microbial trade: synthesizing and then later inserting a nitrogen-nitrogen bond, like a prefabricated part, into a larger molecule. The discovery was made by a collaborative group of chemists at the University of […]Continue Reading ...
A biology researcher at The University of Texas at Arlington will be using the high-tech tools provided by the North Texas Genome Center to shed light on the role of ‘jumping genes’. Transposable elements or ‘jumping genes’ make up a large fraction of the genome and are responsible for much of the mass of DNA […]Continue Reading ...
An agreement to launch a new cryo-EM capability for use in the life sciences industry sector by Thermo Fisher Scientific, one of the world leaders in high-end scientific instrumentation, and Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron and one of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world, was announced on Wednesday (12 September, 2018) […]Continue Reading ...
A treatment for highly aggressive and commonly fatal pancreatic cancer is being developed, reports a University of Houston researcher who has designed a new medicine that can inhibit two of the major pathways of the deadly disease. Ruiwen Zhang, M.D., Ph.D. and Robert L. Boblitt Endowed Professor in Drug Discovery, has published his findings, along […]Continue Reading ...
“From our earliest conversations, Dean Minor was focused on the future possibilities of a new curriculum,” Utz said. “He could see the need for a uniquely Stanford balance between scientific investigation and superlative clinical training, and helped to ensure it became a reality.” Preetha Basaviah, MD, clinical professor of medicine and assistant dean for pre-clerkship […]Continue Reading ...
