Johns Hopkins Experts Create Opioid Prescribing Guidelines For 20 Common Surgical Procedures

Johns Hopkins Medicine

A Johns Hopkins expert panel of health care providers and patients have announced what is, to their knowledge, the nation’s first set of operation-specific opioid prescribing guidelines. The guidelines are based on the premise that opioid prescribing limits should be based on the operation performed rather than a blanket approach. The ranges offered for each of 20 common operations generally call for reductions from the current rates of opioid prescription, and the researchers say that patients themselves favor using less of the drugs than physicians often prescribe.

When it Comes to Regrowing Tails, Neural Stem Cells Are the Key

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

It’s a longstanding mystery why salamanders can perfectly regenerate their tails whereas lizard tails grow back all wrong. By transplanting neural stem cells between species, Pitt researchers have discovered that the lizard’s native stem cells are the primary factor hampering tail regeneration.

Duke Team Finds Missing Immune Cells That Could Fight Lethal Brain Tumors

Duke Health

Researchers at Duke Cancer Institute have tracked the missing T-cells in glioblastoma patients. They found them in abundance in the bone marrow, locked away and unable to function because of a process the brain stimulates in response to glioblastoma, to other tumors that metastasize in the brain and even to injury.

An Ion Channel Differentiates Newborn and Mature Neurons in the Adult Brain

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Newborn granule cells show high excitability that disappears as the cells mature. Now University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have described key roles for G protein-mediated signaling and the late maturation of an ion channel during the differentiation of granule cells.
