Tailoring cancer treatments to individual patients (Part 2 of 2)

Supercomputers help researchers design cancer models and predict treatments outcomes based on patient-specific conditions   Model Selection and Testing Over the years, many different mathematical models of tumor growth have been proposed, but determining which is most accurate at predicting cancer progression is a challenge. In October 2016, writing in Mathematical Models and Methods in […]

Tailoring cancer treatments to individual patients (Part 1 of 2)

Supercomputers help researchers design cancer models and predict treatments outcomes based on patient-specific conditions Researchers have developed computer models to predict how cancer will progress in a specific individual, based on tissue, cellular and subcellular protein signaling responses. The models can predict how brain tumors (gliomas) will grow with much greater accuracy than previous models. […]

Patient-derived organoids may help personalize the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers

A new review highlights the potential of 3-D organoid models derived from patient cells to help personalize therapy for individuals with gastrointestinal cancers. What are the organoids?    A new BJS (British Journal of Surgery) review highlights the potential of 3D organoid models derived from patient cells to help personalize therapy for individuals with gastrointestinal cancers.

Treatment strategies for multidrug-resistant chronic infections

A new study finds that antibiotic treatment of chronic infections can be optimized by targeting vulnerabilities of antibiotic-resistant pathogens paving the way for more effective treatment strategies. Research paves the way for new rational treatment strategies of multidrug-resistant chronic infections. Antibiotic-resistant Pseudomonas infections in cystic fibrosis patients show predictable sensitivities to other classes of antibiotics. […]

Added Sugars and Low- and No-Calorie Sweeteners in a Representative Sample of Food Products Consumed by the Spanish ANIBES Study Population (Part 5 of 5)

Conclusions Abstract: Low- and no-calorie sweeteners (LNCS), intensely sweet compounds that virtually contain no calories, are used to replace added sugars in food and drinks. Knowledge about different LNCS data in Spanish foods and added sugar sources in Spain is limited, therefore our aim was to identify and compare their presence across main food groups […]
