Scientists Create Open-Source Platform to Analyze Brain Tumors in Kids

Every year, around 2,200 children and adolescents in the United States receive brain tumor diagnoses. Brain tumors rarely occur in these age groups, and most children and adolescents diagnosed with brain tumors grow into adulthood. However, even though pediatric brain tumors are relatively rare, they are among the leading causes of death in children in the country. Furthermore, even less deadly brain tumor variants with longer survival rates negatively affect the diagnosed children and their families. As such, researchers are constantly working on better diagnosing, analyzing and treating brain tumors to improve treatment outcomes even further. Recent efforts by a…

New Computational Platform to Broaden Options of Potential Immunotherapy Targets in Cancer Treatment

Immunotherapy is a relatively novel way of treating cancer. It entails boosting one’s immune system so it can locate and destroy cancer cells. This type of treatment is typically recommended for patients suffering from cases of advanced cancer, and it can be used to address conditions such as kidney cancer, lymphoma, bladder cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Since immunotherapy has only been around since the 1980s, researchers and clinicians are constantly working to make the treatment safer and more effective for cancer patients. A team of researchers from UCLA and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have now created…

Why Healthcare Should Adopt Merchandising Practices

Healthcare has gone through several evolutions throughout the course of human history. Our first attempts at treating medical conditions were half-hearted at best and hampered by our ignorance of germ theory and human biology. The acceptance of germ theory paved the way for modern healthcare and allowed humanity to treat previously fatal injuries and conditions, extending our lifetimes and giving people much longer lifespans. The medical field continued to develop in tandem with technology, adapting more and more complex technology into the field to enhance research and develop a wide variety of medications. With the internet and e-commerce now entrenched…
