Integrated Medical Records Can Reduce Disparities Between Blacks and Whites in HIV Care

A streamlined and integrated method of tracking medical records called a laboratory health information exchange narrowed the gap in anti-retroviral therapy and viral suppression between HIV-positive blacks and whites.

Night Shift Work Associated with Diminished Ability to Repair DNA Damage

ParveenBhatti.jpg

A Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center study, led by epidemiologist Dr. Parveen Bhatti, found that night shift work is associated with reduced ability to repair DNA lesions. Over time, DNA damage that is not repaired will cause mutations that can lead to cancer.

Skin Cell Model Advances Study of Genetic Mutation Linked to Heart Disease, Stroke Risk

stull-kamm-nr-body.jpg

Using a new skin cell model, researchers have overcome a barrier that previously prevented the study of living tissue from people at risk for early heart disease and stroke. This research could lead to a new understanding of disease progression in aortic aneurysm – ballooning of the large artery in the chest that carries blood from the heart to the body.
