BIDMC-Lead Team Develops New Approach to Study Non-Coding RNAs

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

In a groundbreaking paper published today in the journal Cell, investigators at the Cancer Research Institute Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) have found dozens of important new genes, both coding and non-coding that impact sensitivity to chemotherapy. In doing so, the scientists developed a novel technique that marries CRISPR technology with big data mining to identify and assign function to non-coding RNAs

Leptin’s Neural Circuit Identified

Tufts University

Scientists identified a neural circuit in the hypothalamus as the primary mechanism mediating the hormone leptin’s anti-obesity and anti-diabetes effects and found two mechanisms underlying leptin’s inhibition of appetite. The work in mice advances efforts to treat human obesity and diabetes.

Party Lines

Harvard Medical School

Despite deep rifts in health care opinions across party lines, a physician’s party affiliation appears to have no effect on clinical decisions in end-of-life care. Researchers found no cross-party differences among physicians in their choice of care protocols, including the intensity of life-sustaining treatments, among terminally ill patients.

Risk of Type 1 Diabetes Climbs When One Population of T Cells Falls

Joslin Diabetes Center

We are the first to demonstrate that pTregs are important in autoimmune diabetes, and we hypothesize that microbes in the gut, where most of this pTreg cell population is switched on, may be responsible for generating these protective cells and thus protecting against the autoimmune attack on pancreatic beta cells that cause type 1 diabetes.

Relaxation Response Therapy May Reduce Blood Pressure by Altering Expression of a Distinct Set of Genes

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

A new study led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), and the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at MGH identified genes associated with the body’s response to relaxation techniques and sheds light on the molecular mechanisms by which these interventions may work to lower blood pressure. The findings were published today in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
