Today's open access research on tryptophan and its role in age-related immune dysfunction is particularly interesting in the context of ongoing research into the changes that take place in gut microbiota with age. Other recent work has examined the way in which tryptophan production by gut microbes declines precipitously with age, as this is one of a number of compounds produced by bacteria, such as butyrate, indole, and proprionate, that are influential on long term health. It is a slow process, but researchers are uncovering the specific mechanisms linking age-related changes in gut microbe populations with declining hea...

AbstractThis exploratory pilot study aims to provide preliminary data describing the experiences of university student cancer survivors, quantify their connection to the campus Disability Resource Center, and assess the feasibility of conducting research with this population. In this descriptive study of cancer survivor students at one large university in the southwestern U.S., online survey respondents with a history of cancer (N = 19) reported cognitive, emotional, and physical limitations that affected their educational experience. The majority (78.9%) of our participants were children, adolescents, or young adults (up ...

Many facts about lung cancer are well-known: lung cancer persists as the number one cause of all cancer-related mortality worldwide [1]. The most prevalent type, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), accounts for 85% of all cases, and many individuals present with stage IV disease (44%), with a 5-year survival estimate of 4.2% [2]. What may be less well-known is that the case is compelling for patients with lung cancer being the most psychologically disabled of all cancer groups [3,4]. In fact, SEER registry data (3.5 million patients; 1973-2002) show the standardized suicide mortality ratio for patients with lung cancer is ...
