  • A research team developed a way to stimulate immune cells to attack cancer cells in the body. They identified two compounds that could be injected into mice and work together to stimulate immune cells. After the compounds were injected directly into a tumor, the immune cells killed that tumor and distant tumors of the same type. Find the story at http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ7UM

    Injection prompts mouse immune system to destroy tumors

    In studies using mouse models, scientists found a combination of agents that, when injected into a tumor, directs the immune system to destroy not only the injected tumor, but tumors of the same type throughout the body. This tumor vaccination approach doesn't depend on knowing the unique characteristics of a tumor, so it could in theory be applied to many forms of cancer.

  • NIH-funded researchers identify risk factors for sleep apnea during pregnancy

    Snoring, older age and obesity may increase a pregnant woman’s risk for sleep apnea — or interrupted breathing during sleep — according to researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health. The study, which appears in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, was supported by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

    “Our study found an easy, inexpensive way to screen large numbers of women at higher risk of sleep apnea during pregnancy,” said study co-author Uma Reddy, M.D., of NICHD’s Pregnancy and Perinatology Branch. “Right now, this means we’ll be able to rapidly identify women who may benefit from further testing. Depending on what we learn from future studies, our findings could also lead to improvements in pregnancy outcomes.”
