Researchers Leverage Apps in Treatment of TBI

A 1999 report to Congress stated that traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are the top cause of disability and death in children and young adults in the United States. Two decades later, an estimated 2.8 million Americans sustain TBIs every year resulting in 280,000 hospitalizations and 50,000 fatalities. Depending on the region of the brain that received trauma, some patients have to deal with long-term effects, including speech difficulties, trouble with logic and understanding others, and apraxia.

Combining Immunotherapy with Anti-Rejection Drugs Can Treat Cancer, Prevent Kidney Transplant Rejection

Most kidney transplant patients usually stop taking their immunosuppressive drugs before starting cancer immunotherapy treatment to diminish the chances of their immune systems attacking the transplanted organs. However, a new study has found that combining standard antirejection medication and immune checkpoint inhibitors may benefit kidney transplant patients who suffer from terminal cancer. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are drugs designed to block checkpoints, which are proteins that prevent immune responses in the body from being too strong. Checkpoints also prevent T-cells from eliminating cancer cells. Blocking these checkpoints allows T-cells to eradicate cancer cells more effectively. The study’s objective was to look…
