Spikes in Blood Pressure Among Young Adults Spell Trouble in Mid-Age

Duke Health

Wide swings in blood pressure readings among young adults are associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease by middle age, a new analysis led by Duke Health researchers shows.

JAMA editorial helps set record straight on unproven sepsis therapy

University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC)

The Jan. 17 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) features an important study about sepsis with an accompanying editorial by a University of Nebraska Medical Center expert.

Partnership with China Prompts Change in Care for High-Risk Type of Leukemia

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Researchers from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Chinese Children’s Cancer Group led the first randomized, Phase III clinical trial comparing targeted therapies for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) driven by the Philadelphia chromosome. Results showed that the drug dasatinib provides more benefit than the standard of care, which led to changes in the way this leukemia is treated. The findings were reported today in JAMA Oncology.
