Lung Cancer Study Hints at New Treatments

Washington University in St. Louis

Studying the most common type of lung cancer, researchers have uncovered mutations in a cell-signaling pathway that plays a role in forming tumors. The new knowledge may expand treatments for patients because drugs targeting some of these genetic changes already are available or are in clinical trials.

Making Quantum Connections

Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland

Physicists are pretty adept at controlling quantum systems and even making certain entangled states. JQI researchers are putting these skills to work to explore the dynamics of correlated quantum systems. Their recent results investigating how information flows through a quantum many-body system are published this week in the journal Nature (10.1038/nature13450), and in a second paper to appear in Physical Review Letters.

Immune Function Predicts Infection Risk Among Child Trauma Patients

Nationwide Children's Hospital

Researchers studying critically ill children with traumatic injuries have identified an immune marker that predicts which patients are likely to develop a hospital-acquired infection. The study, published online in June in the journal Shock, is part of several larger efforts that could lead to the clinical implementation of quick-turnaround immune function tests and treatments to prevent or reverse immune system damage following critical illness or injury in pediatric patients.

Bacteria Hijack Plentiful Iron Supply Source to Flourish

Case Western Reserve University

In an era of increasing concern antibiotic-resistant illness, Case Western Reserve researchers have identified a new pathway to disabling disease: blocking bacteria’s access to iron. The scientists showed how bacterial siderophore captures iron from two supply sources to fan bacterial growth and how the body launches a chemical counterassault.
