About two of every three children will experience at least one traumatic event before they turn 18, but only a few psychotherapeutic treatments showed possible benefits for children exposed to trauma.
A series of studies at the UNC School of Medicine found that steroid drugs, known for inducing bone loss with prolonged use, actually help suppress a molecule that’s key to the rapid bone loss process.
A new analysis of data missing from a study that ended more than 40 years ago shows that replacing saturated animal fats with omega-6 polyunsaturated vegetable fats (PUFAs) is linked to an increased risk of death among patients with heart disease.
A research team led by Blossom Damania, PhD, found that suppressing the TLK enzyme causes the activation of the lytic cycle of both EBV and KSHV. During this active phase, these viruses begin to spread and replicate, and become vulnerable to anti-viral treatments.
An international team of scientists led by the University of North Carolina has published a study evaluating different ways of helping men consider their values about PSA screening. They report that the decision-making process was influenced by the format in which information was presented.
Jason Goldsmith, an MD-PhD student at UNC, is also the owner and lead instructor at Tactical Kung Fu and MMA in Durham, N.C.
A team lead by Charles Perou, PhD, of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, examined more than 1,700 breast tumors, including 412 triple negative (TN) breast cancers, and concluded that triple-negative cancers, and basal-like breast cancers should not be considered as a single type.
A career U.S. Army Special Forces officer from Robeson County takes on cancer with the same toughness he uses on the battlefield. At UNC Hospitals he finds his dream team -- including his son, who lost both legs while serving in Afghanistan -- to help in the fight.
This study found that by using two non-invasive technologies, a patient's response to therapy can be detected earlier than by relying on tumor volume changes.
Dr. Pignone will join fellow experts in evidence-based medicine from many health-related fields to rigorously review existing peer-reviewed evidence and evaluating the benefits and harms of preventive services.
By analyzing data from DNA microarrays, a UNC-led team has completed a study that confirms the presence of four molecular classes of the disease and extends previous results by suggesting that there may be an underlying connection between the molecular classes and observed genomic events, some of which affect known cancer genes.
A team lead by Xian Chen of UNC mapped the complex interactions of proteins that control inflammation at the molecular level.
Desrochers is an RN in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at N.C. Children's Hospital and a yoga teacher.
Taylor will receive a two-year, $50,000 grant to further her research, which explores the intersection of neurobiology, neurotechnology and biomedical engineering to study the cellular mechanisms critical in learning and memory.
