You Need Emergency Colon Surgery? Who is Going to be Performing it?

Diseases of the Colon and Rectum Journal

In the January issue of Diseases of the Colon & Rectum, surgeons from 3 large universities (Pennsylvania State, Temple and Columbia) examined outcomes of patients undergoing emergency colon surgery at their institutions. They wanted to find out whether there was a difference in outcomes when surgery was performed by a general surgeon, a surgeon specializing in emergency surgery, or a colon surgery specialist. In order to avoid biasing the study, patients operated on by different groups of surgeons were “matched” so that there was no difference in the severity of their illness or in the number of other health problems in patients between groups.

Study of Tagraxofusp Reports 90 Percent Response Rate for Deadly Blood Cancer with No Prior Available Therapies

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

An open-label, multi-cohort Phase II trial, led by investigators at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, reports that treatment with the drug tagraxofusp resulted in high response rates in patients with blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN), a rare but highly aggressive – and often fatal bone marrow and blood disorder – for which there are no existing approved therapies.

With Flower Preferences, Bees Have a Big Gap Between the Sexes

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

For scores of wild bee species, females and males visit very different flowers for food – a discovery that could be important for conservation efforts, according to Rutgers-led research. Indeed, the diets of female and male bees of the same species could be as different as the diets of different bee species, according to a study in the journal PLOS ONE.

A Breakthrough in the Study of Laser/Plasma Interactions

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A new 3D particle-in-cell simulation tool developed by researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and CEA Saclay is enabling cutting-edge simulations of laser/plasma coupling mechanisms. More detailed understanding of these mechanisms is critical to the development of ultra-compact particle accelerators and light sources.
