Smoking Raises Risk of Aneurysm Recurrence After Endovascular Treatment

A history of smoking significantly increases the chance that survivors will experience recurrence of a brain aneurysm, according to a University of Michigan study. Researchers say it’s a serious reminder about the importance of smoking cessation, especially for patients who undergo endovascular aneurysm treatment.

NYU Dental Researchers Awarded NIH Grant for Microbiome Research to Identify Biomarkers for Tongue Cancer

The research focuses on the oral microbiome and disruptions in its normal balance, using next-generation sequencing, new molecular technologies which now permit far more comprehensive analyses of the bacterial community in the mouth. Researchers aim to learn how to diagnose aggressive cancers earlier, modulate the microbiome, and prevent or slow the oral cancer progression.

Study: Opioids Overused in Migraine Treatment, Regardless of Race

African-Americans are more likely to experience debilitating migraine headaches than whites, but a new study probing the issue found no evidence of racial disparities in treatment practices. Instead, researchers report a different finding that affects everyone: opioid overuse.

Day-Supply of Prescribed Opioids Most Decisive Factor in Likelihood of Long-Term Use

The single biggest factor determining whether a patient is likely to use opioids long term may be the number of days’ supply initially prescribed, according to a study by UAMS researchers.

In the wake of the Aug. 12 confrontations between protesters and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, some progressives are calling for legal restrictions on the display of the Nazi flag. These arguments are entirely understandable, but they often misapply existing First Amendment law, and they suppress free speech values that progressives — more than anyone else — should want to defend, says a Constitutional law expert at Washington University in St.

The immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab has demonstrated a favorable safety profile and “promising durable clinical activity” in pretreated patients who exhibit high levels of the PD-L1 protein in advanced stages of small cell lung cancer. That is according to data from a phase 1b clinical trial conducted by Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey investigators and colleagues at centers around the world.
