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.

Physics researchers discover new approach to control the spread of light

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Physics researchers have discovered a new way to control light — one that produces a concentrated, optically energetic laser beam when transmitted through diffuse media such as fog, biological tissue or white paint — rather than the typical weaker light with a lateral spread.

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.
