- New data on increasing cloth mask effectivenesson October 23, 2020 at 4:00 am
(Society for Risk Analysis) A new study published in Risk Analysis, 'Reinventing cloth masks in the face of pandemics,' by Stephen Salter, P.Eng., describes how Effective Fiber Mask Programs (EFMPs) can help communities find a balance between the economy and curbing community spread.
- Molecular processes in kidney cells may 'prime'...on October 23, 2020 at 4:00 am
(Simons Foundation) People with diabetes -- especially those with diabetic kidney disease -- are among the most at risk for COVID-19. A new study peered inside the kidney cells of COVID-19 patients and diabetic kidney disease patients and made a surprising discovery: Similar molecular processes were activated in both sets of patients. The results suggest that diabetes may predispose patients to SARS-CoV-2 infection or more severe COVID-19 by spurring biological processes used by the virus to […]

(The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust) Findings from the largest international research study found that using FIT is almost 100% accurate at ruling out bowel cancer in patients with suspicious symptoms.During COVID, cancer diagnostics services were suspended and continue to be disrupted. Clinicians in London, along with NHS England, London region, agreed to rapidly implement the use of the same easy home test used in the bowel cancer screening programme, the FIT (faecal immunochemical test), […]
- Researchers create human airway stem cells from...on October 23, 2020 at 4:00 am
(Boston Medical Center) For the first time, researchers have successfully created airway basal stem cells in vitro from induced pluripotent stem cells by reprogramming blood cells taken from patients. Given that airway basal cells are defined as stem cells of the airways because they can regenerate the airway epithelium in response to injury, this study may help accelerate research on diseases impacting the airway, including COVID-19, influenza, asthma and cystic fibrosis.
- Response to adjuvant bevacizumab among patients...on October 23, 2020 at 4:00 am
(American Association for Cancer Research) Younger patients with resected melanoma had some benefit from adjuvant treatment with the anti-VEGF therapeutic bevacizumab (Avastin) while older patients with resected melanoma did not.
