New Calculations Solve an Alpha Particle Physics Puzzle
Department of Energy, Office of Science

In early 2023, scientists published a new measurement testing the strong nuclear force. The experiment involved the way an alpha particle becomes excited. The study suggested a puzzle that could not be solved with existing theoretical methods. Since then, researchers conducted new theoretical calculations to explain the experimental findings and resolve the puzzle.

Novel ADC and immunotherapy combo shows promise in endometrial cancer subtype
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

In a small, investigator-initiated phase 2 study by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute investigators, a novel combination of an antibody-drug conjugate and an immune checkpoint inhibitor showed notable activity in pre-treated patients with a difficult-to-treat form of endometrial cancer. In this study, tumors were reduced in six out of 16 patients treated with the combination, including one case in which the cancer disappeared.
