Antibiotics linked to poorer cancer survival
Triple-negative breast cancer patients who used antibiotics within three years of diagnosis have an increased risk of death, according to a study. The gut microbiome is a likely link.
Bertozzi to speak at graduation
Winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry will be the keynote speaker at the Stanford School of Medicine graduation ceremony.
New COVID-19 vaccine
In a study led by Stanford Medicine researchers, a low-cost COVID-19 vaccine that does not require refrigeration provided immunity in rhesus monkeys for one year.
First abdominal wall transplant in state
The 22-year-old patient had waited years for an intestinal transplant. At Stanford Medicine, a combined intestinal and abdominal wall transplant gave him an even better option.
Skin-colonizing bacteria help fight tumors
In a study led by Stanford Medicine, researchers harnessed the skin’s immune response to bacteria to create an immunotherapy — delivered by swab — that treats aggressive tumors in mice.
DNA circles drive cancer development
Tiny circles of DNA harbor cancer-associated oncogenes and immunomodulatory genes promoting cancer development. They arise during transformation from pre-cancer to cancer, say Stanford Medicine-led team.
Stanford Medicine communications awards
Faculty and Office of Communications staff earn nine awards from the Association of American Medical Colleges.
Agent Orange researcher dies
James Whitlock, MD, a professor emeritus of molecular pharmacology (now chemical and systems biology), who discovered the negative effects of dioxin on the human body, died at home.
Data science meets cardiac science
While cardiac sphericity was the focus of Stanford Medicine-led research, the possibility of data science expanding the reach of biomedical science was its true core, researchers say.
mRNA vaccine beats infection
Stanford Medicine researchers have shown that prior SARS-CoV-2 infection reduces killer T cells’ response to vaccination. These cells are crucial for eliminating the virus from the body.
Osteoarthritis linked to allergic inflammation
A connection found between asthma, eczema and osteoarthritis indicates that drugs to treat allergic conditions could be used in future studies aimed at slowing the progression of osteoarthritis.
