Modeling the interplay between neurons and astrocytes derived from children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues in Brazil, say innate inflammation in the latter appears to contribute to neuronal dysfunction in at least some forms of the disease.

Genetic Testing Recommended for Children Considered at Risk for Most Common Eye Cancer

Children who are considered to be at risk of developing eye cancer should receive genetic counseling and testing as soon as possible to clarify risk for the disease. This is the consensus of leading ophthalmologists, pathologists and geneticists, who worked to develop the first U.S. guidelines on how to screen for the most common eye tumor affecting children.

Rare Cancer Linked with Textured Breast Implants May Be Underreported, Misunderstood

A rare cancer in patients with breast implants may be on the rise, but not all patients and physicians may be aware of the risks associated with the procedure, according to a group of Penn State College of Medicine researchers.

Elucidating the Role of Circulating Nutrients that Fuel Tumor Growth

RabinowitzWhite.jpg

Tumors acquire nutrition necessary for growth and survival from the body of the patient in which they reside. Although these nutrients are predominantly provided by the circulating blood supply, the knowledge of how they are used by tumors is incomplete. Identifying tumor nutrients and how they are used may reveal novel approaches to cancer therapy. Research from investigators at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Princeton University finds that circulating lactate rather than glucose is the prominent metabolic fuel source for tumors and most normal tissues.

A study led by the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing’s Diane Spatz, PhD, RN-BC, FAAN, the Helen M. Shearer Term Professor of Nutrition, has found that delayed lactogenesis was more prevalent among women who were obese pre-pregnancy and that excessive gestational weight gain was also associated with a delay in lactogenesis II.
