New App Offers Faster And Easier Assessment For Multiple Sclerosis

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report they have developed and validated a tablet-based app that offers a faster, easier and more accurate way for health care providers who don’t have specialized training to assess the cognitive function of people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Multiple sclerosis is a chronic neurologic illness that affects the central nervous system, resulting in a variety of symptoms including motor issues, fatigue, visual disturbance, memory and concentration concerns, and mood changes.

Two blood-clotting disorders with different causes interact synergistically

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Researchers have found a synergistic connection, or crosstalk, between two rare but potentially deadly blood-clotting diseases — thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura and hemolytic uremic syndrome. The linkage may provide a rationale for a more targeted therapeutic intervention in patients.

Newswise: Biomarker identified for early beta cell death in Type 1 diabetes

Biomarker identified for early beta cell death in Type 1 diabetes

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Pancreatic beta cells produce insulin. Their death is a key feature of Type 1 diabetes, and loss starts long before diagnosis. Researchers now have identified an early biomarker of Type 1 diabetes-associated beta-cell loss in humans — microRNA-204, which is easily measured in blood serum.

9/11 World Trade Center Exposure Linked to Heart Disease Among NYC Firefighters

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

A study of New York City firefighters finds that exposure to 9/11 World Trade Center (WTC) dust is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Health System, and the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) report in JAMA Network Open that those who arrived first at the WTC site have a 44% increased risk of CVD compared to those who arrived later.

Researchers Characterize Lung Inflammation Associated With Some Cancer Immnunotherapy

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Immune checkpoint inhibitors are a type of therapy that uses the immune system to fight cancer. They have been hailed as game changing, garnering a Nobel Prize last year and quickly becoming the standard of care for many tumor types such as melanoma and certain lung and head and neck cancers.

New members found in a transcription factor complex that maintains beta cells

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A protein complex in beta cells that includes the Islet-1 transcription factor regulates genes important to develop and maintain functional beta cells. Now researchers report the complex also associates with enzymes RNF20 and RNF40, and disruption of either enzyme reduces insulin release.
