DNA Vaccine Leads to Immune Responses in HPV-Related Head and Neck Cancer

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

A therapeutic vaccine can boost antibodies and T cells, helping them infiltrate tumors and fight off human papillomavirus (HPV)-related head and neck cancer. Researchers from the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania tested the immunotherapy approach in two groups of patients with advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCCa) and found 86 percent showed elevated T cell activity.

Full, but Still Feasting: Mouse Study Reveals How the Urge to Eat Overpowers the Signal to Stop

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

A new study explores the mystery of what drives eating past the point of fullness, at the most basic level in the brain. It shows that two tiny clusters of cells battle for control of feeding behavior -- and the one that drives eating overpowers the one that says to stop. It also shows that the brain’s own natural opioid system gets involved – and that blocking it with the drug naloxone can stop over-eating.
