Hidden Immune Cells Cause Lung Transplant Failure

Scientists have discovered that a subset of immune cells called nonclassical monocytes (NCMs), previously unknown to reside in the lungs, play a key role in driving primary graft dysfunction (PGD), the leading cause of death after lung transplantation. The study demonstrates targeting these cells could lead to novel treatments for PGD, a complication that currently impacts more than half of transplant patients.

Radiation Therapy Vital to Treating Brain Tumors, but It Exacts a Toll

Radiation therapy (RT) using high-energy particles is a common and critical component in successfully treating patients with brain tumors but it is also associated with significant adverse effects. In a new study, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that irradiation can cause broader adverse effects, altering the structural network properties in impacted brains and perhaps contributing to delayed cognitive impairments observed in many patients following brain RT.

Obesity Increases Risk of Complications After Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgery

For patients undergoing shoulder joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty), higher body mass index is linked to increased complications—including the need for "revision" surgery, reports a study in the June 7 issue of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery. The journal is published in partnership with Wolters Kluwer.
