Scientists Pinpoint Gene to Blame for Poorer Survival Rate in Early-Onset Breast Cancer Patients

A new study led by scientists at the University of Southampton has found that inherited variation in a particular gene may be to blame for the lower survival rate of patients diagnosed with early-onset breast cancer.

New Cellular Approach Found to Control Progression of Chronic Kidney Disease

Researchers have demonstrated for the first time that extracellular vesicles – tiny protein-filled structures – isolated from amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs) can be used to effectively slow the progression of kidney damage in mice with a type of chronic kidney disease.

Survival Rates Are Improving for Individuals with Kidney Failure

• In the United States, the excess risk of kidney failure–related death decreased by 12% to 27% over any 5-year interval between 1995 and 2013. • Decreases in excess mortality over time were observed for all ages and both during treatment with dialysis and during time with a functioning kidney transplant.
