Your Mouth on a Chip
 NIH ' s National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial ResearchCell-loaded microchips offer a new lens into human biologyMicrochips that mimic parts of the human body may sound futuristic, but these devices —called organs-on-chips—are already being used to study human biology. Made from plastic, with grooves that are lined with cells and channels that transport air and fluids, these chips can simulate aspects of organ structure and function. Chips have been designed to mimic many different parts of the body, including beating heart tissue, air-filtering lung cells, and electrically active brain cells. The technolo...

Pre-operative immunotherapy triggers encouraging response in oral cancers
(American Society for Radiation Oncology) A new clinical trial suggests that immunotherapy given before other treatments for oral cavity cancers can elicit an immune response that shrinks tumors, which could provide long-term benefit for patients. In the randomized trial, two neoadjuvant doses of nivolumab given with or without ipilimumab led to complete or partial tumor shrinkage in most cases and did not delay any patients from continuing on to standard treatment. Findings will be presented at the 2020 Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancers Symposium. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
