Researchers identify marker of aggressive disease for papillary thyroid cancer

Researchers identify marker of aggressive disease for papillary thyroid cancer

A new discovery from University of Alberta scientists represents an important milestone in the fight against thyroid cancer. In a study published in EBioMedicine and recently presented at the American Thyroid Association annual meeting, the team has identified a marker of aggressive disease for papillary thyroid cancer, which comprises about 90 per cent of all thyroid cancers.

Certain medications can have important effect on success of dental implants, research shows

Each year, about 500,000 North Americans get dental implants. If you are one of them, and are preparing to have an implant, it might be a good idea to start taking beta blockers, medication that controls high blood pressure, for a while. And to stop taking heartburn pills. [More]

A study of patient electronic medical records and genome sequences from adults with age-related hearing impairment by researchers at UC San Francisco and Kaiser Permanente Northern California, identified two genetic variations linked to the hearing disorder. [More]
UCSF researchers find active HIV in tissue samples of patients treated with antiretrovirals

UCSF researchers find active HIV in tissue samples of patients treated with antiretrovirals

While successful treatment of HIV with antiretroviral medications leads to undetectable levels of virus in the blood, controls the disease and leads to much longer lifespans, scientists know that HIV continues to reside in tissues. [More]

Researchers discover mass migration of inhibitory neurons into the brain's frontal cortex after birth

Researchers at UC San Francisco have discovered a previously unknown mass migration of inhibitory neurons into the brain's frontal cortex during the first few months after birth, revealing a stage of brain development that had previously gone unrecognized. [More]
New method allows early detection of tooth decay using long-wavelength infrared imaging

New method allows early detection of tooth decay using long-wavelength infrared imaging

Dental caries-- tooth decay -- is the most prevalent dental disease among children and adults around the world. Left too long before treatment, the disease results in difficulty eating, infection, and even tooth loss. [More]
