This evaluation usually involves several visits to assess your physical, psychological, and familial condition. The typical wait for a deceased donor organ is over five years. Kidney donors may be either living or deceased.
In a study of medical records gathered on hundreds of thousands of African-American women, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have evidence that women with a common form of hair loss have an increased chance of developing uterine leiomyomas, or fibroids.
The finding, published in the Dec. December 18, How Electroconvulsive Therapy Relieves Depression Per Animal Experiments In a study using genetically engineered mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have uncovered some new molecular details that appear to explain how electroconvulsive therapy ECT rapidly relieves severe depression in mammals, presumably including people.
The molecular changes allow more communication between neurons in a specific part of the brain also known to respond to antidepressant drugs. December 15, Exposure to Larger Air Particles Linked to Increased Risk of Asthma in Children Researchers at The Johns Hopkins University report statistical evidence that children exposed to airborne coarse particulate matter — a mix of dust, sand and non-exhaust tailpipe emissions, such as tire rubber — are more likely to develop asthma and need emergency room or hospital treatment for it than unexposed children.
December 14, Johns Hopkins Scientists Chart How Brain Signals Connect to Neurons Scientists at Johns Hopkins have used supercomputers to create an atomic scale map that tracks how the signaling chemical glutamate binds to a neuron in the brain. December 14, Liquid Biopsy Results Differed Substantially Between Two Providers Two Johns Hopkins prostate cancer researchers found significant disparities when they submitted identical patient samples to two different commercial liquid biopsy providers.
The results are used to help guide doctors to tailor the best treatment for patients at each point of their disease. He is the second person to hold this role. December 11, Bioethicists Call For Caution in Use of Rare Experimental Fetal Therapy Citing uncertainties about the risks and benefits of an experimental therapy for fetuses whose kidneys do not develop, bioethicists at Johns Hopkins and a team of medical experts are calling for rigorous clinical trials in the use of a potential treatment, known as amnioinfusion.
December 6, Evolutionary Biologists Say Recently Discovered Fossil Shows Transition of a Reptile From Life on Land to Life in the Sea Modern New Zealand reptile may be a close relative Using modern research tools on a million-year-old reptile fossil, scientists at Johns Hopkins and the American Museum of Natural History report they have filled in some important clues to the evolution of animals that once roamed land and transitioned to life in the water.
December 5, Combination Strategy Could Hold Promise for Ovarian Cancer Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers demonstrated that mice with ovarian cancer that received drugs to reactivate dormant genes along with other drugs that activate the immune system had a greater reduction of tumor burden and significantly longer survival than those that received any of the drugs alone.
Specifically, physicians who reported knowing at least one patient, family member or friend with a poor breast cancer prognosis and who had not been screened were more likely to recommend routine screening for their younger and older patients, age groups where routine screening is controversial.
The scientists say the method, which they based on tests with mouse embryos and thousands of human cells, could improve consistency and efficiency of genome editing. November 30, 2-Drug Combination May Boost Immunotherapy Responses in Lung Cancer Patients Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers and colleagues have identified a novel drug combination therapy that could prime nonsmall cell lung cancers to respond better to immunotherapy.
These so-called epigenetic therapy drugs, used together, achieved robust anti-tumor responses in human cancer cell lines and mice. November 30, Media Advisory: Topics of discussion include the state of HIV research during the past year and newly released research.
November 20, Blueprint to Reduce Wasteful Blood Transfusions By analyzing data from randomized clinical trials comparing blood transfusion approaches, Johns Hopkins experts, along with colleagues at Cleveland Clinic and NYU Langone Medical Center, endorse recommendations for blood transfusions that reduce blood use to improve patient safety and outcomes.
Publishing this week in JAMA Internal Medicine, the report also provides a how-to guide for launching a patient blood management program. November 20, Johns Hopkins scientists report they have successfully used two separate gene technologies to assemble the most complete genome sequence to date of Triticum aestivum, the most common cultivated species of wheat used to make bread.Yenepoya Eye Bank- National Eye Donation Fornight August 25 to September 8 ; Report of Inauguration of pfmlures.com Bioscience Programme at YRC.
