It Takes Two: Children’s Hospital Los Angeles-Providence Saint John's Neonatal Care Partnership Helps Newborn Twins Overcome Early Obstacles

Twin brothers Logan and Liam Chang were born on Dec. 29, 2016, seven weeks premature, at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica. One of them was able to receive specialized care at Providence Saint John’s NICU and emergency surgery at Children's Hospital Los Angeles for a complex condition, thanks to the new partnership.

UCLA researchers have developed an improved technique for creating simplified human brain tissue from stem cells. Because these so-called “mini brain organoids” mimic human brains in how they grow and develop, they’re vital to studying complex neurological diseases.

Combination Treatment Targeting Glucose in Advanced Brain Cancer Shows Promising Results in Preclinical Study

PETimagespreandpost-textcropNathanson.jpg

UCLA scientists have discovered a potential combination treatment for glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer in adults. The three-year study led by Dr. David Nathanson, a member of UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, found that the drug combination tested in mice disrupts and exploits glucose intake, essentially cutting off the tumor's nutrients and energy supply. This treatment then stimulates cell death pathways-which control the cancer cells' fate- and prevents the glioblastoma from getting bigger.

First Randomized Trial to Determine Most Effective, Least Toxic Treatment for Babies with SCID

Investigators plan to determine the lowest dose of chemotherapy needed for babies with severe combined immunodeficiency undergoing bone marrow transplant. The goal is to restore the immune system safely and effectively with less toxicity than the higher dose regimens currently in use.
