Obesity is linked with the composition of microbes in the human gut. In new research, bacterial composition in the gut, as well as accompanying metabolites are shown to undergo a profound and permanent shift, with microbial diversity significantly increasing following gastric bypass surgery.

A 12-month study mapping bacterial diversity within a hospital — with a focus on the flow of microbes between patients, staff and surfaces — should help hospitals worldwide better understand how to encourage beneficial microbial interactions and decrease potentially harmful contact. The Hospital Microbiome Project is the single biggest microbiome analysis of a hospital performed, and one of the largest microbiome studies ever.

Seattle Children’s Brings First-of-its-kind Precision Medicine Clinical Trial to Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Bone Marrow Transplant Patients

In an effort to find new strategies to personalize treatment for pediatric patients, Seattle Children’s has opened the first clinical trial applying precision medicine to better understand how the immune system drives both inflammatory bowel disease and graft-versus host disease in pediatric patients.

The Secret to Combating Pancreatic Cancer May Lie in Suppression of a Common Protein

GRP78_3.png

Research from the Keck School of Medicine of USC indicates that in mice with a KRAS mutation, which is present in 90 percent of pancreatic cancer patients, expressing only half the amount of the glucose-regulated protein GRP78 is enough to halt the earliest stage of pancreatic cancer development. This results in delayed tumor development and prolonged survival.

Colon cancer patients who have a healthy body weight, exercise regularly and eat a diet high in whole grains, fruits and vegetables have a significantly lower risk of cancer recurrence or death, according to a research team led by UC San Francisco investigators. This finding represents an analysis of data collected on patients participating in a national study for people with stage III colon cancer.
