Two Biomarkers Appear to Predict Course of IPF

Two T cell biomarkers appear to predict the survival trajectory of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a lung disease that has a varied, but ultimately devastating, impact on patients, according to new research presented at the ATS 2017 International Conference.

Rush Clinical Trial Provides New Kidney Cancer Immunotherapy Option

A new clinical trial provides a new option for kidney cancer patients and adds to Rush’s wider research efforts towards identifying immune system biomarkers to better predict which immunotherapy will work best for individuals no matter which cancer they’re fighting.

Insects Resist Genetic Methods to Control Disease Spread, Study Finds

20170515_MichaelWade_JB_0016_v3.jpg

A study from Indiana University published May 19 in the journal Science Advances finds that insects possess a naturally occurring resistance to the use of the gene-editing technology CRISPR-Cas9 to prevent diseases such as malaria.

Life in the Precambrian May Have Been Much Livelier Than Previously Thought

An interdisciplinary study suggests that the strange creatures which lived in the Garden of the Ediacaran more than 540 million years ago before animals came on the scene may have been much more dynamic than experts have thought.

Old Cells That Refuse to Die May Lead to Treatments for Age-Related Diseases

The Weizmann Institute of Science’s Dr. Valery Krizhanovsky finds that old cells might be useful after all. Understanding why some “retired” cells do not undergo apoptosis could lead to treatments for old-age-related diseases.

Researchers Discover First Human Antibodies That Work Against All Ebolaviruses

After analyzing the blood of a survivor of the 2013-16 Ebola outbreak, a team of scientists from academia, industry and the government has discovered the first natural human antibodies that can neutralize and protect animals against all three major disease-causing ebolaviruses. The findings, published online today in the journal Cell, could lead to the first broadly effective ebolavirus therapies and vaccines.

A Counterintuitive Finding That Could Benefit Younger Colorectal Cancer Patients

Younger colon cancer patients appear to have more than three times as many mutations in their tumors as older patients, which could lead to more effective treatment decisions, say researchers at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Injured Bones Reconstructed by Gene and Stem Cell Therapies

A Cedars-Sinai-led team of investigators has successfully repaired severe limb fractures in laboratory animals with an innovative technique that cues bone to regrow its own tissue. If found to be safe and effective in humans, the pioneering method of combining ultrasound, stem cell and gene therapies could eventually replace grafting as a way to mend severely broken bones.
