By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

For physicians caring for patients after kidney transplantation, it’s a balancing act. They need to select the right immunosuppressant drug and dosage to enable the patient’s immune system to accept the new kidney, but allow it to fight other unwanted infections. Physicians also want to reduce potential side effects from these immunosuppression medications, which can […]

Genomic Rearrangement Drives Pancreatic Cancer

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Pancreatic cancer remains the fourth leading cause of cancer-associated deaths in the United States. While prognosis has improved for other major cancers thanks to early diagnosis, better therapies and a more comprehensive knowledge of genetic factors, death rates from pancreatic cancer continue to rise. Roughly 90 percent of pancreatic cancers are ductal pancreatic adenocarcinomas (PDAC) […]
