A Better Cervical Collar: Old Myths and New Realities
Cervical immobilization has long been considered an essential first step in addressing trauma patients. For forty years, there has been controversy over risk/benefits of a semi-rigid collar. Some studies have even suggested that collars can even be omitted as long as patients are immobilized until arrival at an ED or trauma center. Because radiologists have the final say in diagnosing normal vs fracture of cervical spine, we were asked to undertake a study to find the best solution for cervical immobilization. To address this controversy, we used state of the art radiology techniques in assessing jugular venous return and ...

Mismatch repair deficiency predicts response of solid tumors to PD-1 blockade
The genomes of cancers deficient in mismatch repair contain exceptionally high numbers of somatic mutations. In a proof-of-concept study, we previously showed that colorectal cancers with mismatch repair deficiency were sensitive to immune checkpoint blockade with antibodies to programmed death receptor–1 (PD-1). We have now expanded this study to evaluate the efficacy of PD-1 blockade in patients with advanced mismatch repair–deficient cancers across 12 different tumor types. Objective radiographic responses were observed in 53% of patients, and complete responses were achieved in 21% of patients. Responses we...
