1 in 4 kids who get antibiotics in children’s hospitals are prescribed the drugs incorrectly

Washington University in St. Louis

New research led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that 1 in 4 of the children given antibiotics in U.S. children's hospitals are prescribed the drugs inappropriately. The overuse of antibiotics poses an increasing threat to children who develop — or already have — drug-resistant infections.

Kidney Paired Donation Is An Excellent Option for Transplant Candidates

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

• An analysis compared transplant recipients who received kidneys through national kidney paired donation and those who received kidneys from other living donors (such as relatives, friends or other paired exchange mechanisms). • Despite a higher number of risk factors for poor outcomes in the kidney paired donation group, recipients in the two groups had similar rates of organ failure and mortality over a median follow-up of 3.7 years.

Newswise: Six patients with rare blood disease are doing well after gene therapy clinical trial

Six patients with rare blood disease are doing well after gene therapy clinical trial

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

UCLA researchers are part of an international team that reported the use of a stem cell gene therapy to treat nine people with the rare, inherited blood disease known as X-linked chronic granulomatous disease, or X-CGD. Six of those patients are now in remission and have stopped other treatments. Before now, people with X-CGD – which causes recurrent infections, prolonged hospitalizations for treatment, and a shortened lifespan – had to rely on bone marrow donations for a chance at remission.
