Researchers develop algorithm to find possible misdiagnosis

15 February 2021, EurekAlert

The researchers have developed the algorithm based on disease trajectories for 284,000 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), from 1994 to 2015. Based on these data, they came up with approximately 69,000 typical disease trajectories...

Combination treatment for common glioma type shows promise in mice

16 February 2021, ScienceDaily

Researchers tested a novel combination treatment approach on mice with tumors with characteristics similar to human astrocytomas and found tumor regression in 60 percent of the mice treated. These encouraging results could be the first step toward developing a treatment for this type of brain cancer...

Cosmetic laser may boost effectiveness of certain anti-cancer therapies

17 February 2021, MedicalXpress

The researchers found that exposing the melanoma cells to ultraviolet radiation caused them to take on more mutations, which made immune checkpoint inhibitors more effective at boosting the immune response against the melanomas...
