Researchers will present results of the phase 3 NETTER-1 study, showing clinically meaningful and significant results for Lutathera (77Lu-DOTA0-Tyr3-Octreotate) in patients with metastatic midgut neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).

Delivering genetic test results to patients at risk for cancer-causing genetic mutations over the phone helps to ease cost and transportation burdens and, compared to receiving results in person, does not cause patients additional stress, according to a new study.

They're inside our gut, on the skin, and in the mouth. Thousands of different types of micro-organisms live in and on the body, playing helpful roles in digestion or in aiding the body's natural defense system. Now, scientists have found tiny organisms living in the upper female reproductive tract,…

Sweden has always been associated with good health indicators. However new research presented at the summit shows that obesity has continued to increase across mid-Sweden since the start of the new millennium.

Data from a large UK survey on the eating habits of very young children (aged 4-18 months) show that overweight children consume larger meals, but do not eat more frequently, than healthy weight children.

New research on the first procedure-free gastric balloon shows it is safe and results in similar weight loss to other balloon procedures that use endoscopy.

Researchers will present preliminary results from a phase 1 study testing whether the addition of pembrolizumab to radiation therapy and bevacizumab is safe and can control tumor growth for these patients.

Patients who don't respond to treatments that use their own immune cells to destroy tumors, called tumor infiltrating lymphocytes, share changes in mechanisms that switch genes on or off in those cells, according to a new study.

New research shows that a New Zealand produced bitter plant extract can suppress food intake by stimulating the secretion of gut peptide hormones involved in appetite regulation.

Overweight and obese people are turning to a multitude of smartphone apps to help them lose weight. But new research says that only 17 (0.5 percent) of the apps identified by the researchers have been developed by a certified health organization or university.

By Jamell Andrews Carotenoids are natural antioxidants that have been found to improve immune function even lower the risk of cancer and other diseases. Getting these benefits is as simple as adding certain foods to your diet and an easy… The post Carotenoids and the Benefits of Eating…

New research suggests that early severe social deprivation may impact DNA modifications that affect the expression of stress-related genes.

Basal cell carcinoma is one of the most common cancers and its incidence is increasing worldwide, putting a significant burden on health services. Topical treatments are available for superficial basal cell carcinoma (BCC) but there has a lack of long-term follow-up data to guide treatment…

A new study has found evidence that an enzyme known as NMNAT2 may help protect against the debilitating effects of certain degenerative brain diseases, including Alzheimer's.

A promising new compound appears to impede a process that fuels breast cancer in mice, a discovery that could have implications in the treatment of a host of cancers.

Neurofeedback using electroencephalograpy boasts thousands of practitioners and appears to both improve normal brain function and alleviate a wide variety of mental disorders -- from anxiety to alcoholism. But after examining the scientific literature and consulting experts in Europe and the U.S.,…

Transplant surgeons have performed the first lung transplant in Texas using donated lungs treated with new technology known as ex-vivo lung perfusion.

Infants and toddlers take longer to notice new visual stimuli and are less accurate in their gaze than adults, but slowly improve as they age. The findings reinforce the importance of raising young children in stimulating environments, and set an important baseline as detection of developmental…

A new aspect of how the process forgetting works has been uncovered by researchers. The finding indicates a protein called 'Scribble' orchestrates the intracellular signaling processes for forgetting, joining several molecules to forge a pathway.

For the first time, researchers have discovered that some leukemia cells harvest energy resources from normal cells during chemotherapy, helping the cancer cells not only to survive, but actually thrive, after treatment.

Cancer researchers show that injecting substances that mimic tumor-cell DNA into the bloodstream can stimulate the STING pathway to provoke a life-extending immune response in mice with acute myeloid leukemia. This is the first demonstration that this approach could be effective in widely…

A team of researchers has demonstrated in mice that it is possible to generate healthy new liver cells within the organ itself, making engraftment unnecessary. What's more, they did it by converting the very cells that drive liver disease, thereby reducing liver damage and improving liver function…

Tackling one of the key challenges facing current human genetics, two multi-institutional research teams have demonstrated a tool that should help untangle which genetic variants actually create risk for heart disease, diabetes and a host of other diseases. The research employs an experimental…

Three months before the opening of the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics, a group of researchers used a mathematical model to calculate the risk of dengue acquisition by the 400,000-odd foreign visitors expected to attend. This model was used with success during the last FIFA World Cup, in 2014. Once…

A link between levels of the stress hormone cortisol and psychosis has been discovered by researchers, which could help identify people at greatest risk of developing the severe mental disorder.
