Newswise: Mapping the pathway to gut health in HIV patients

Mapping the pathway to gut health in HIV patients

UC Davis Health

A UC Davis study found that Lactobacillus plantarum bacteria rapidly repaired damaged gut lining (known as leaky gut) in monkeys infected with chronic simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), an HIV-like virus. It linked chronically inflamed leaky gut to the loss of PPARα signaling and damage to mitochondria.

Receiving care in a multidisciplinary prostate cancer clinic increases discussion about treatment options and adherence to national guidelines

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

Newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients have multiple standard-of-care treatment options available, but many are not fully informed of their choices. A study led by researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center found men who seek treatment at a multidisciplinary (MultiD) prostate cancer clinic are more likely to be advised about treatment choices and to receive care that complies with evidence-based treatment guidelines.

Opioid prescription doses are increasingly being tapered, often more rapidly than recommended

UC Davis Health

Stigma and safety fears have made daily dose tapering of opioid prescriptions more common. New research from UC Davis Health physicians, however, shows tapering can occur at rates as much as six times higher than recommended, putting patients at risk of withdrawal, uncontrolled pain or mental health crises.

Prostate cancer bone metastases thwart immunotherapy by producing TGF-β

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

Prostate cancer that spreads to the bone triggers the destruction of bone tissue that thwarts the effectiveness of immune checkpoint inhibitors. Research points to anti-CTLA-4 and anti-TGF-B combination to protect T cells.

Secondary surgery does not improve overall survival for recurrent ovarian cancer patients

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

Researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center reported that secondary tumor-reduction, or cytoreduction, surgery followed by chemotherapy did not result in longer survival than chemotherapy alone in patients with platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian cancer.
