Rush is First in Illinois to Offer PRRT

Illinois patients with metastatic neuroendocrine cancer no longer have to travel abroad or out of state for a sought-after targeted therapy called peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, or PRRT. Rush University Medical Center in Chicago is one of the few health care providers in the United States, and the first in Illinois, authorized to offer this therapy for a limited number of patients prior to U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval.

Case Grows for Link Between Happiness and Health

EdwardDiener-4.jpg

In the most comprehensive review to date of studies on subjective well-being, a team of researchers conclude there is a connection between happiness and health in some instances — from better wound healing and immune system function to emotional resilience. The researchers say what’s needed now is more work to unravel when, how and what types of subjective well-being are most influential.

Researchers have identified a unique metabolic signature associated with epileptic brain tissue that causes seizures. It will allow physicians to precisely identify small regions of abnormal brain tissue in early-stage epilepsy patients that can’t be detected today using current technology.

Penn Nursing, Medicine Study: Standardized Policies Needed for How and When Police Interact with Trauma Patients

SaraJacoby560x380.png

Injured people often interact with police and other law enforcement agents before and during their injury care, particularly when their injuries are due to violence or major motor vehicle crashes. Yet, there are no professional guidelines in trauma medicine or nursing that standardize when and how police interact with injured patients.

Learning from the ‘mammalian diving reflex,’ UB researchers have successfully tested face cooling to prevent steep drops in blood pressure during simulated blood loss, a prehospital intervention that EMTs and battlefield medics could one day use to save lives.

Newly Discovered Gene Variants Link Innate Immunity and Alzheimer’s Disease

SchellenbergNatGenmouseplaqueJuly2017.jpg

Three new gene variants, found in a genome wide association study of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), point to the brain’s immune cells in the onset of the disorder. These genes encode three proteins that are found in microglia, cells that are part of the brain’s injury response system.

New Study of Brain Circuits Finds Key Links to Symptoms of Depression

VPimagedk.jpg

Scientists have linked specific wiring in the brain to distinct behavioral symptoms of depression. In a study published in Cell, researchers at UC San Diego found brain circuits tied to feelings of despair and helplessness and were able to alleviate and even reverse such symptoms in mice studies.
