Using Physics to Print Living Tissue

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

3D printers can be used to make a variety of useful objects by building up a shape, layer by layer. Scientists have used this same technique to “bioprint” living tissues. Bioprinting is a relatively new technology that has advanced mostly by trial and error. Scientists are now using the laws of physics and predictive computer modeling to improve these techniques and optimize the bioprinting process. These new advances are reviewed in Applied Physics Reviews.

Tolerance to Stress is a ‘Trade-off’ as Fruit Flies Age

Florida Atlantic University

With the help of the common fruit fly (D. melanogaster), which ages quickly because it only lives about 60 days, FAU neuroscientists provide insights into healthy aging by investigating the effects of a foraging gene on age and stress tolerance.

Separation Anxiety No More: A Faster Technique to Purify Elements

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a new chemical separation method that is vastly more efficient than conventional processes, opening the door to faster discovery of new elements, easier nuclear fuel reprocessing, and, most tantalizing, a better way to attain actinium-225, a promising therapeutic isotope for cancer treatment.

New genetic weapons challenge sickle cell disease

Rice University

Help for patients with sickle cell disease may soon come from gene editing to fix the mutation that causes the disease and boost the patient's own protective fetal hemoglobin.

Immunotherapy Keeps 87-year-old Man on the Job

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Five-year survival data for pembrolizumab patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer were presented June 1 at the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting, May 31-June 4, in Chicago. The study results showed a marked improvement over 5-year survival rates in the pre-immunotherapy era, which averaged only 5.5%. Pembrolizumab increased the survival rate to 23.2% after five years in people with advanced non-small cell lung cancer who had not previously been treated with chemotherapy and to 15.5% in those who had been previously treated with chemotherapy. The KEYNOTE-001 is the longest follow-up study to date of people with advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated with pembrolizumab.

Immunotherapy drug improves five-year survival rate of people with advanced lung cancer

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

In a study led by UCLA investigators, treatment with the immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab helped more than 15% of people with advanced non-small cell lung cancer live for at least five years — and 25% of patients whose tumor cells had a specific protein lived at least that long.

Atlantic Health System Physicians Co-Author Studies to be Presented at American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting

Atlantic Health System

Studies to be presented at the ASCO meeting are co-authored by research oncologists Eric Whitman, MD; Missak Haigentz, MD; and Angela Alistar, MD. Their ASCO studies include: two separate studies looking at TILS therapy and Keytruda for advanced melanoma; immunotherapy for metastatic head and neck cancer; treatment for recurrent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive nasopharyngeal carcinoma; and a combination of CPI-613 -- a new type of medication, pioneered by Dr. Alistar, known as an altered energy metabolism drug -- with 5-FU in treating metastatic colorectal cancer.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin May Lead to Better Outcomes with Fat Grafting

Wolters Kluwer Health: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

A "second-generation" platelet concentrate called platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) might enhance the outcomes of fat grafting for plastic surgery procedures, reports an experimental study in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
