Potential New Therapy for Crohn’s, Colitis Identified

Washington University in St. Louis

researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found a compound that may treat IBD without directly targeting inflammation. The compound tamps down the activity of a gene linked to blood clotting. They discovered that the gene was turned on at sites of intestinal inflammation and damage, and blocking its activity reduces IBD symptoms in mice.

Stock Analysts Accentuate the Negative So Firms Can Achieve More Positives, Study Finds

Washington University in St. Louis

A new study, involving two Washington University in St. Louis faculty at Olin Business School, finds that analysts disseminate earnings news by revising share-price targets or stating they expect firms to beat earnings estimates, often tempering such information — even suppressing positive news — to facilitate beatable projections. The paper is scheduled for the March issue of The Accounting Review.

High-powered fuel cell boosts electric-powered submersibles, drones

Washington University in St. Louis

A team of engineers in the McKelvey School of Engineering has developed a high-powered fuel cell that operates at double the voltage of today’s commercial fuel cells. It could power underwater vehicles, drones and eventually electric aircraft at a significantly lower cost.
