Advanced Form of Proton Therapy Shows Promise for Treating Lung Cancer Recurrence

An advanced form of image-guided radiation therapy, known as intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT), has shown early promise for the treatment of recurrent lung cancer, according to new research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Untreated Sleep Apnea in Children Can Harm Brain Cells Tied to Cognition and Mood

MRIscansofgraymattervolume.jpg

A study comparing children 7 to 11 years old with moderate or severe obstructive sleep apnea to children the same age who slept normally found significant reductions of gray matter – brain cells crucial to most cognitive tasks – in several regions of the brains of children with sleep apnea. The finding points to connections between this common sleep disturbance and the loss of neurons or delayed neuronal growth in the developing brain.
