New optical imaging system could be deployed to find tiny tumors

Paula Hammond | Via MIT | March 29, 2019

Many types of cancer could be more easily treated if they were detected at an earlier stage. MIT researchers have now developed an imaging system, named “DOLPHIN,” which could enable them to find tiny tumors, as small as a couple of hundred cells, deep within the body. In a new study, the researchers used their […]

High-speed, 3D microscope captures stunning videos of fruit fly nerve cells in action

Elizabeth Hillman | Via EurekAlert | March 29, 2019

Columbia engineers and neuroscientists have joined forces to create 3D videos of individual nerve cells moving, stretching and switching on inside fruit fly larvae as they move. Data gleaned from these videos reveals how nerve cells called proprioceptive neurons work together to help the body sense where it is in space. To accomplish this feat, […]

Myoscience Announces Data Demonstrating iovera Therapy is an Effective Alternative to Opioids for Pain Relief Following Knee Replacement Surgery

William Mihalko | Via The Associated Press | March 29, 2019

Myoscience, Inc., a medical device company dedicated to relieving pain through targeted therapies, today announced clinical trial results demonstrating that iovera° therapy significantly reduced the use of opioids following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery (primary endpoint) and significantly reduced pain in a prospective, randomized study.

Drug could alleviate side effects of chemo for breast cancer patients

Joseph Wu | Via Stanford University | March 29, 2019

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have demonstrated a method of forecasting which breast cancer patients will suffer heart problems from a commonly used chemotherapy drug. The researchers also found that a class of medications already approved by the Food and Drug Administration may mitigate these side effects. “We could use this method […]

Vitamin C Might Reverse Stress-induced Driver of Breast Cancer, Study Says

Quentin Liu | Via Breast Cancer News | March 29, 2019

Chronic stress and the consequent release of the stress hormone epinephrine may help breast cancer cells grow by helping them get more energy, a study in mice shows. This effect might be reversed through treatment with vitamin C, researchers report. The study, “Stress-induced epinephrine enhances lactate dehydrogenase A and promotes breast cancer stem-like cells,” was […]
