Multimodal Genomic Analyses Predict Response to Immunotherapy in Lung Cancer Patients

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, the Bloomberg~Kimmel Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have developed an integrated genomic approach that potentially could help physicians predict which patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer will respond to therapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Reduced Inhaler Use is Safe for Infants with Bronchiolitis

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Bronchiolitis, a lung infection that is one of the most common reasons for hospitalizations in young children, is most prevalent during the winter months and is usually treated with albuterol delivered via inhalers, despite evidence showing no benefit in most patients. A multidisciplinary team of researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) redesigned the hospital’s standard treatment for the infection and reduced albuterol use without compromising care.

Study Identifies Genetic Anomaly Associated with Poor Response to Common Asthma Treatment

Cleveland Clinic

A new Cleveland Clinic study has uncovered a genetic anomaly associated with poor response to a common asthma treatment. The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that asthmatic patients with the gene variant are less likely to respond to glucocorticoids and often develop severe asthma.
