How CT Cancer Screening for Longtime Smokers Can Save Lives

Dawn Andersen lost her husband to lung cancer, and as a longtime smoker herself, she also was at high risk for the disease. So Loyola Medicine pulmonologist Sean Forsythe, MD, recommended Mrs. Andersen undergo a CT lung cancer screening test, which has been shown to save lives among longtime smokers by detecting lung cancer in early stages when it’s most treatable.

Glioblastoma Clinical Trial Shows Combined Therapy Extends Life for Patients 65 and Older

Treating older patients who have malignant brain cancer with the chemotherapy drug temozolomide plus a short course of radiation therapy extends survival by two months compared to treating with radiation alone, show clinical trial results published today in the New England Journal of Medicine.

China's Severe Winter Haze Tied to Effects of Global Climate Change

China's severe winter air pollution problems may be worsened by changes in atmospheric circulation prompted by Arctic sea ice loss and increased Eurasian snowfall – both caused by global climate change.

From the Butterfly's Wing to the Tornado: Predicting Turbulence

Remember the butterfly-triggers-tornado adage? Chaos theory says calculating turbulence to find out if that's true must be impossible. Now, physicists are latching onto turbulent patterns with digital optics and math. Their resulting forecasts jibe with actual turbulent flows.

Study Finds IV Steroids for Nerve Blocks Associated With Decreased Need for Pain Medication

A study conducted by researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that IV dexamethasone did not prolong nerve blocks but did decrease the amount of pain medicine needed and extended the time before the first pain medicine was requested.

Reducing Radiation Could Safely Cut Breast Cancer Treatment Costs

More than half of older women with early stage breast cancer received more radiation therapy than what might be medically necessary, adding additional treatment and health care costs, according to a study led by Duke Cancer Institute researchers.
