Researchers Key to Advance Care Planning With Cancer Clinical Trial Patients

University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing

Cancer clinical trials are an important option for patients with cancer. Yet, once a trial ends, patients still need care plans. Little is known at what point during clinical trial transitions to initiate advance planning discussions or how to educate research teams to communicate with and prepare patient-participants and their families for the next steps after they leave a cancer clinical trial.

Temperatures Rising: Patients Taking Diuretics May See More Benefit by Upping Potassium Intake During Warmer Weather

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Patients taking diuretics are often at risk for low potassium levels, which can put patients at an increased risk of death from cardiac arrhythmias or other causes. But researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that taking prescription potassium supplements can reduce these patients’ risk by nearly 10 percent as daily outdoor temperatures increase—a time when patients may be at highest risk due to loss of potassium while sweating. These findings are detailed in a study published today in BMJ Open.

Specialized Stem Cells Appear Very Early in Development

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Specialized lung cells appear in the developing fetus much earlier than scientists previously thought. Investigating the fetal signaling pathways active in the biological events by which alveoli form may offer future opportunities to treat lung damage caused by prematurity and other lung injuries.

Penn Medicine and CHOP Study Finds that Fetal Signaling Pathways May Offer Future Targets for Treating Lung Injury

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

A new animal study describes how cells that become alveoli, the tiny compartments in which gas exchange occurs in the lung, begin their specialized roles very early in prenatal life. Investigating the fetal signaling pathways active in this biological event may offer future opportunities to treat lung damage caused by prematurity and other lung injuries.
