Greater Public Access to Bleeding Control Training and Kits Receives Strong Support Within the U.S. Medical Community

Yesterday the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates approved a resolution introduced by the American College of Surgeons and other medical societies to train more professional first responders (i.e., police and firefighters) and civilians as immediate responders in the essential techniques of bleeding control and to place bleeding control kits (containing tourniquets, pressure bandages, hemostatic dressings, and gloves) with first responders.

Fred Hutch Expert Available to Discuss NEJM Article on Biomarker Tests for Molecularly Targeted Therapies

Gary H. Lyman, MD, MPH, an internationally recognized oncologist and health economist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and a member of a committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), is available to discuss biomarker tests for molecularly targeted therapies. Earlier this month he co-authored a New England Journal of Medicine “Perspective” article summarizing the recommendations for biomarker tests, considered “the key to unlocking precision medicine.” These biomarker tests are very important as more and more tests become available to consumers, and both physicians and patients need to be sure the test they are taking is useful and of value specifically to them.

Six in Ten Adults Prescribed Opioid Painkillers Have Leftover Pills

In the midst of an epidemic of prescription painkiller addiction and overdose deaths, a new Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health survey suggests that more than half of patients prescribed opioids have leftover pills – and many save them to use later.

Clinical Study Suggests the Origin of Glioblastoma Subtypes

glioblastoma_density_map.jpg

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have demonstrated that distinct types of glioblastoma, the most common form of brain cancer in adults, tend to develop in different regions of the brain. This finding provides an explanation for how the same cancer-causing mutation can give rise to different types of brain malignancies.

Precision Prevention of Colorectal Cancer

Precision medicine’s public face is that of disease — and better treatments for that disease through targeted therapies. But precision medicine has an unsung partner that could affect the lives of many more people: Precision prevention — a reflection of the growing realization that preventing cancer and other diseases may not be one-size-fits-all.

Within Six Families, a Path to Personalized Treatment for an Immune Disorder

UUHC_160310_508_crop_1.jpg

The most common immune disorder, common variable immunodeficiency disorder (CVID), is notoriously difficult to diagnose early, before serious complications develop. Genetic analysis of six families from across the U.S. and Europe has revealed that mutations in IKAROS, known for its central role in immune cell development, define a new class of CVID. Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the results open the door to personalized health care tailored to patients with this disorder.

A nanoparticle does double duty, imaging and treating atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up inside arteries, is a prolific and invisible killer, but it may soon lose its ability to hide in the body. Scientists have developed a nanoparticle that mimics high-density lipoprotein. It can simultaneously light up and treat atherosclerotic plaques that clog arteries, which could someday help prevent heart attacks and strokes. The researchers present their findings at the 251st National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.
