Harvard Medical School Scientists Pinpoint Critical Step in DNA Repair, Cellular Aging

The body’s ability to repair DNA damage declines with age, which causes gradual cell demise, overall bodily degeneration and greater susceptibility to cancer.

Brain “Rewires” Itself to Enhance Other Senses in Blind People

The brains of those who are born blind make new connections in the absence of visual information, resulting in enhanced, compensatory abilities such as a heightened sense of hearing, smell and touch, as well as cognitive functions (such as memory and language) according to a new study led by Massachusetts Eye and Ear researchers.

Light Scattering Spectroscopy Helps Doctors Identify Early Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate among all major cancers, largely because physicians lack diagnostic tools to detect the disease in its early, treatable stages. Now, a team of investigators led by Lev T. Perelman, PhD, Director of the Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging and Photonics at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), has developed a promising new tool capable of distinguishing between harmless pancreatic cysts and those with malignant potential with an overall accuracy of 95 percent. The team’s preliminary data was published online today in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering.

More Money, Same Results

At a glance: Hospitalized patients treated by higher-spending physicians do not have better outcomes than patients treated by lower-spending physicians. Health care spending varies more across individual physicians than across hospitals. While other studies have examined differences in spending and patient outcomes across geographic regions and across hospitals, this is the first study to analyze the link between spending patterns of individual physicians within the same hospital and patient outcomes.
