Penn Medicine | Virtua Strategic Alliance Brings First Proton Therapy to South Jersey

Cancer care in South Jersey is about to enter a new era. Penn Medicine, in partnership with Virtua, announced plans to build a new proton facility on the campus of Virtua’s acute care hospital, Virtua Voorhees. The new $35 million center, which will allow cancer patients to undergo cutting edge proton therapy in single-room treatments, is expected to be completed by 2020. It will be the first and only proton therapy center in South Jersey.

American Pain Society Scientific Summit Explores Pain Mechanisms

Understanding Pain Mechanisms is the theme of the American Pain Society’s Scientific Summit, www.americanpainsociety.org, March 4-6 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. The conference brings together leading pain researchers and clinicians to explore biopsychosocial mechanisms that influence pain perception and treatment response discovered through clinical, translational and basic science pain research.

New Catalyst Meets Challenge of Cleaning Exhaust From Modern Engines

News Release RICHLAND, Wash. — As cars become more fuel-efficient, less heat is wasted in the exhaust, which makes it harder to clean up the pollutants are emitted. But researchers have recently created a catalyst capable of reducing pollutants at the lower temperatures expected in advanced engines. Their work, published this week in Science magazine, a leading peer-reviewed research journal, presents a new way to create a more powerful catalyst while using smaller amounts of platinum, the most expensive component of emission-control catalysts.

Opioid Tapering

Study Explores Patient-Doctor Communication About Opioid Tapering

Increased scrutiny of opioid prescribing for patients with chronic pain has led providers and healthcare organizations to consider opioid-dose reductions, known as tapering. Such actions can precipitate communication challenges for primary-care physicians. A new study, published in The Journal of Pain, examined patient-doctor conversations and explored best practices associated with opioid tapering. The Journal of Pain is the peer-review publication of the American Pain Society, www.americanpainsociety.org.

Mayo Clinic研究显示:Emojis(表情符号)能帮助跟踪癌症患者的生活质量

提交给美国血液学会的Mayo Clinic的一项研究发现,使用Emojis(表情符号)而不是传统情绪量表有助于评估癌症患者的身体,情感和整体生活质量。 研究人员发现,病人喜欢使用iPhone(苹果手机)和Apple Watch (苹果手表),而这些技术有助于准确有效地收集研究数据。 这项使用苹果ResearchKit框架创建的研究显示,苹果手表能提供客观连续的病人活动数据,而这些数据与已建立的癌症患者报告的结果紧密相关。
