Colon and colorectal cancers are among the most commonly diagnosed cancers in both men and women in the United States. A recent study released by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute shows these cancers are especially on the rise in millennials and GenX. The study showed the risk for these cancers increasing by around 3 percent each year.
The study also concluded that adults born in 1990 have a two-fold higher risk of being diagnosed with colon cancer compared to adults born around 1950. Furthermore, the risk of rectal cancer is four times higher in the younger generation.
More than 50,000 people visit the ER each year for acetaminophen poisoning.
UMN researchers in the Center for Drug Design have developed a new antidote for liver toxicity due to acetaminophen overdoses.
There are theories for everything. Newton’s Law is a pillar of physics. Supply and demand is a pillar of economics. But what about neuroscience?
Neuroscience researchers don’t have a standard to fall back on when interpreting behavior in the brain. That’s due, in part, to the complexity of the brain, and the complexity of the human cognition, which are incredibly difficult to study. A CMRR researcher has created a computational model to do just that.
New research in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons shows pediatric kidney transplant recipients have significantly improved one-year survival rates, as well as improved organ function after 10 years. Study investigator Srinath Chinnakotla, MD, FACS, attribute the improvements to better surgical techniques, anti-rejection medication and living donor protocols.
