At the heart of a new study are two proteins that work together to help cancers metastasize
Dr. Richard F. Loeser Jr. will receive the award April 24 at the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) World Congress in Paris, France.
The John William Pope Foundation has made a $1.3 million gift to UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to fund cancer research and treatment.
In a new study, researchers from North Carolina State University, UNC-Chapel Hill and other institutions have taken the first steps toward creating a roadmap that may help scientists narrow down the genetic cause of numerous diseases.
Insect stings cause 40 to as many as 100 deaths nationwide each year. A review of current scientific literature related to specific insect-sting hypersensitivity points to epinephrine auto-injectors and immunotherapy as lifesavers in people with a previous sting-induced systemic allergic reaction.
The findings shed more light on cancer development and metastasis.
The study also found that a new follow-up program in the Internal Medicine Clinic at UNC Hospitals prevents one hospital readmission within 30 days for every seven patients seen in the program.
The discovery could lead to new therapies and better diagnostics, resulting in fewer hospitalizations of children with respiratory syncytial virus, the leading cause of severe lung infection in babies.
With the dedication of Marsico Hall, UNC ushered in a new era of medical research, collaboration, and promise for the people of North Carolina and beyond.
Using a test developed at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to determine molecular aging, UNC oncologists have directly measured the impact of anti-cancer chemotherapy drugs on biological aging.
UNC’s William Powers, MD, provides the first hard evidence for how to treat stroke patients with poor collateral blood vessel formation.
The large-scale, cross-sectional study was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. David Ransohoff of UNC is one of the study's co-authors.
A majority of parents in a new study reported infant feeding and activity behaviors believed to increase the child’s risk for later obesity. In addition, these behaviors varied according to the self-reported race and ethnicity of the parents. Eliana M. Perrin, MD, MPH, is author of the study.
Fearing pain and avoiding activities contribute to disability and chronic pain in kids with gut malady
New research from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine suggests that fear avoidance contributes to disability and pain in children with Functional Abdominal Pain (FAP) but not Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
The School ranked 2nd in Primary Care and 22nd in Research overall in the 2015 U.S. News & World Report Best Medical School Rankings. Family Medicine, Rural Medicine and AIDS were also listed as top ten specialties.
Researchers from the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering developed nanoparticles that could deliver cancer therapies in a safer and more effective way.
The lab of Klaus Hahn, PhD, developed a new technique to help scientists map the interactions between the proteins at the heart of many diseases.
The new protocol helps health care providers determine which patients need hospital admission and those whose needs can be met with outpatient treatment.
UNC receives more than $40 million from NIH for global clinical trials unit to treat and prevent HIV
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has received a seven-year, more than $40 million award from the National Institutes of Health for a clinical trials unit that will implement the scientific agendas of five NIH networks devoted to HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and cure research.
