Dementia diagnosis could be fast-tracked using artificial intelligence

Forms of dementia could be spotted sooner and more easily by analyzing recordings of patients’ electrical brain activity using artificial intelligence (AI), according to new research. Scientists from the University of Surrey and the University of Newcastle have shown that it is possible to use electroencephalography (EEG) as a low-cost diagnostic tool to help clinicians […]

New delivery strategy may improve chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia

Many drug-resistant tumors have dysfunctional metabolism of ceramide, a metabolite that promotes cell death. Investigators who previously demonstrated that augmenting ceramide can counter tumors’ drug resistance mechanisms have now shown that adding ceramide nanoliposomes can improve the efficacy of a standard chemotherapy regimen of venetoclax plus cytarabine in models of acute myeloid leukemia. In their […]

Rhombic lip implicated in origins of high-risk medulloblastoma

Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have discovered which cells give rise to certain high-risk groups of medulloblastoma. The findings will help researchers better understand the biology of the disease, as well as develop better research models and guide their hunt for therapeutic targets. The findings were published today in Nature. Medulloblastoma is the […]
