Genetic Mutations Linked to Rare Multiple Bowel Tumors

Most people with colorectal cancer will develop one primary tumor, which may then multiply and spread; however, in around 2% to 5% of colorectal cancer (CRC) cases, two primary tumors will originate and develop independently, known as synchronous colorectal cancer. More...

New Methods Detect Early Onset of Alzheimer's Disease

New methods to examine the brain and spinal fluid heighten the chance of early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and this may have important implications for early detection of the disease, the choice of drug treatment and the inclusion of patients in clinical trials. More...

Bacterial Infection Identified as Cause of Overactive Bladder Syndrome

Overactive Bladder (OAB) is currently characterized by symptoms of urgency, with or without urgency incontinence, with increased frequency, and nocturia, and in some cases pain, in the absence of urinary tract infection (UTI) or other defined underlying pathology. More...

Simple Method Developed to Characterize Immune Cells in Tumors

Despite recent achievements in the development of cancer immunotherapies, only a small group of patients typically respond to them and therefore predictive markers of disease course and response to immunotherapy are urgently needed. More...

There are areas of collapse within the head as well as mild degenerative changes on the acetabular side (Photo courtesy of Dr. Brett Levine, MS, MD, and Dr. William Jaffe, MD).

New Genetic Mutation Linked to Osteonecrosis of the Hip

Osteonecrosis or 'bone death' of the femoral head is a disease caused by interruption of blood flow in the hip bone and patients, many of whom are under the age of 25, experience pain and the bone and surrounding joint collapse. More...

AI Approximates Human Performance in Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Artificial intelligence (AI) methods that train computers to interpret pathology images could make pathologic diagnoses more accurate. More...

Aggressive Breast Cancer Identified with Fluorescent Technique

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast is the most common type of non-invasive breast cancer and in DCIS, epithelial cells proliferate within ducts, which are surrounded by a double layer of myoepithelial cells and basement membranes. More...
