Stroke patients appear to receive better care at teaching hospitals with less of a chance of landing back in a hospital during the early stages of recovery, according to new research from McGovern Medical School.
Using an innovative quality improvement project to determine how to design an effective emergency trauma clinical trial, a team of surgeons at McGovern Medical School was able to launch the first-ever study on a high-risk damage control surgery for critical abdominal injuries.
A small clinical trial underway at McGovern Medical School is testing the hypothesis that probiotics can help improve gastrointestinal symptoms of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
When paramedics resuscitated cardiac arrest patients with a new type of breathing tube, their patients were more likely to survive, according to a McGovern Medical School-led study in a late August edition of JAMA.
Researchers at the Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine for the Prevention of Human Diseases (IMM) have found a new way to reduce failure rates in pre-clinical studies of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) using mouse models.
Addressing a critical issue for people with a genetic disorder called tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), doctors at McGovern Medical School reported that a skin cream containing rapamycin significantly reduced the disfiguring facial tumors affecting more than 90 percent of people with the condition.
In a landmark study, researchers found that patients treated with paramedic oxygen delivery using a newer, more flexible laryngeal breathing tube may have a greater survival rate after sudden cardiac arrest than the traditional intubation breathing tube.
When scientists at McGovern Medical School applied a chemical found in soybeans to a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), they increased its anticancer properties and reduced its side effects. Findings of the preclinical study of phosphatidylcholine, also called lecithin, appear in the journal Oncology Letters.
While individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may find social interactions challenging, promising research by Dr. Anne Sereno, former professor of neuroscience in the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, and Megan Kirchgessner, former visiting student, shows that a series of tablet-based tasks and games may be suitable methods of early intervention in children with ASD.
White blood cells called neutrophils are like soldiers in your body that form in the bone marrow and at the first sign of microbial attack, head for the site of injury just as fast as they can to neutralize invading bacteria or fungi using an armament of chemical weapons.
