Bringing Precision to Medicare Cancer Care

image002.gif

At a glance: Medicare policies governing end-of-life care for cancer patients may fail to reflect the variety of experiences across different patient subgroups. Researchers have developed a model that accounts for variations in the clinical course, outcomes and patterns of care among patients with the same cancer diagnosis. Stratification of different subpopulations could lead to better tailored Medicare policies that take into account critical differences in end-of-life care.

Scientists have solved the structure of a protein that helps a common respiratory virus evade the immune system. The team, led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, have identified critical parts of the protein that could be targeted with drugs or vaccines, opening up the possibility of preventing or treating an infection that sickens thousands of babies and elderly people every year.
