Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has been used as an effective tool for cancer evaluation and has been found to be highly sensitive in detecting breast tumors, but there is no evidence that pre-operative MRI translates into improved outcomes following breast conserving surgery. New NIBIB-funded research evaluated the differences between pre-operative prone and supine MRI exams in 12 women undergoing lumpectomy for breast cancer. Learn more at TechTimes:
Breast cancer patients often lie face down during MRI scans but lie face up during lumpectomy. How does the patient's position during presurgical MRI affect success of tumor removal?

Quick diagnosis of bloodborne diseases can very much be a matter of life and death, but bouncing results off a hospital can take hours or days — so the National Institutes of Health and Cornell University are working on a device called the FeverPhone that could cut that time to as little as 15 minutes.

Today, NIH announces a new policy to streamline the review process for NIH-funded, multi-site clinical research studies in the United States: http://1.usa.gov/28Jmaif
Accelerating clinical research studies benefits researchers, research participants, and all who stand to gain from research results.

NIH-funded research, the first to visualize how vital receptors on the surface of T cells bundle together when activated in lymph nodes, could help scientists better understand how to turn up or down the immune system’s activity to treat autoimmune diseases, infections or even cancer. Learn more at Salk:
LA JOLLA—When the body is fighting an invading pathogen, white blood cells—including T cells—must respond. Now, Salk Institute researchers have imaged how vital receptors on the surface of T cells bundle together when activated.

The striking, stone-like forms that you see are a micrograph of flower buds from the mustard plant Arabidopsis thaliana, which serves as an important model organism in biomedical research. This image was a winner in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology’s 2015 BioArt competition. Learn more at the NIH Director's Blog:
Modern sculptors might want to take a few notes from Mother Nature. The striking, stone-like forms that you see above are a micrograph of flower buds from the mustard plant Arabidopsis thaliana, wh…

A large international study, partly funded by NIH, offers some good news: proof-of-principle that “Big Data” tools can help to identify a drug’s potential side effects much earlier in the drug development process. Learn more at the NIH Director's Blog:
People with type 2 diabetes are at increased risk for heart attacks, stroke, and other forms of cardiovascular disease, and at an earlier age than other people. Several years ago, the Food and Drug…

NIH-funded researchers are exploring how tuberculosis bacteria are able to dodge drug attacks; the goal is to design strategies to overcome the bug's resistance. http://go.usa.gov/chVte
A new study shows how gene regulatory network analysis can help predict which drugs will work effectively in combination against drug-resistant tuberculosis bacteria.
