Nerve Stimulation in Mice Suggests New Way to Reduce Delirium After Surgery

Duke Health

or adults over age 65, surgical complications can dampen not only their physical health but also their mental sharpness, with more than half of high-risk cases declining into delirium.

Blood Test Identifies More Treatable Cancer Mutations Than Tissue Biopsy Alone

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

In one of the largest clinical studies to ever examine the impact of using a blood test to detect treatable mutations in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), researchers from the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania found that they could identify significantly more mutations through liquid biopsy instead of a solid tissue biopsy alone. The findings also show that patients whose actionable mutations were detected by the blood based liquid biopsy responded favorably to targeted therapies.
