BRAF mutation occurs in between 40% and 50% of metastasising melanomas (skin cancers), boosting tumour growth. Patients with metastasising melanomas and who display BRAF mutation can be treated with an inhibitor that acts specifically against BRAF mutation (BRAF inhibitor in combination with MEK…

Being overweight increases the chances of premature death . This statement is backed by a four-continent effort involving 239 studies and data from 10.6 million people. The study -- one of the largest to date -- runs counter to the results of a 2013 paper in the Journal of the American Medical…

Automatic external defibrillators fail to save lives when the public does not have basic life support education, according to new research. The study found that public access defibrillation programs are unevenly deployed across France, with an obvious impact on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest…

Moderate physical activity is associated with a greater than 50 percent reduction in cardiovascular death in over-65s, according to research. The 12-year study in nearly 2,500 adults aged 65 to 74 years found that moderate physical activity reduced the risk of an acute cardiovascular event by more…
