MS risk in children spotted with MRI brain scans
(Yale University) By the time multiple sclerosis (MS) is diagnosed in children, it may be difficult to prevent the disabilities and relapses that come with the disease. In a new Yale School of Medicine study, researchers examined MRI brain scans to identify children at high risk of developing MS before symptoms appear, which may lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Timpiyan, Kenya - Zoonotic TB survivor
My name is Timpiyan and I am a zoonotic tuberculosis (TB) survivor. I come from the Kajiado County in Kenya, and I am originally from a Maasai tribe. Since 2016 I have been a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Civil Society Task Force on TB. In 2011, I realized that something was wrong with my health when I started losing weight while my stomach was constantly swollen. I had a whole body scan at the hospital in Nairobi and the doctors told me that they saw a big mass in my upper abdomen which had to be removed. It turned out it was pus, and when I woke up after a 7-hour surgery, the doctors told me that I had TB...

UCLA HealthPositron emission tomography images show glioblastoma tumor glucose uptake before, left, and after treatment in mice.FINDINGSUCLA scientists have discovered a potential combination treatment for glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer in adults. The three-year study led by David Nathanson, a member of UCLA ’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, found that the drug combination tested in mice disrupts and exploits glucose intake, essentially cutting off the tumor’s nutrients and energy supply. This treatment then stimulates cell death pathways — which control the cancer cells’ fat...
