  3. UCSF-led scientists use machine learning technology to uncover hallmarks of mystery concussionRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 1, 2017 | Medical News

    Scientists have used a unique computational technique that sifts through big data to identify a subset of concussion patients with normal brain scans, who may deteriorate months after diagnosis and develop confusion, personality changes and differences in vision and hearing, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder. This finding, which is corroborated by the identification of molecular biomarkers, is paving the way to a precision medicine approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with traumatic brain injury.

  4. New MIP system for therapeutic gene delivery can enhance transgene expression using AAV vectorRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 28, 2017 | Medical News

    Advanced engineering of a mini-intronic plasmid system designed to carry a therapeutic gene can significantly enhance the expression of the transgene delivered using an adeno-associated viral vector. The ability to increase transgene expression by up to 40 to 100-fold, which would reduce the cost of manufacturing and perhaps also lessen the immune response of AAV/MIP-based gene therapy, is reported in Human Gene Therapy, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Those with advance directives that put limitations on treatments and designated surrogate decision makers had fewer hospitalizations, intensive procedures, and inpatient deaths, and they were more likely to use hospice and discontinue dialysis prior to death.
