Northwestern Medicine study found when adults in their 30s and 40s drop unhealthy habits they can potentially reverse the natural progression of coronary artery disease.
Kathryn E. Hulse, PhD, research assistant professor in Medicine-Allergy-Immunology, found that while men are more likely to have chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, women with the disease have a more severe form.
Rosalind Ramsey-Goldman, MD, professor of Medicine-Rheumatology, recently published a paper in the American Journal of Cardiology that links plaque in the carotid artery of women with lupus to an increased risk of cardiovascular events.
New Northwestern Medicine study shows delinquency in youth predicts a much higher rate of being shot to death before age 30.
A new study has found that large racial/ethnic disparities in colorectal cancer screening persist in America, including substantial differences between English-speaking and Spanish-speaking Hispanics. The research confirmed continued low screening rates among all residents of the U.S.
Recently published research in Human Molecular Genetics shows that removing too much of the enzyme HDAC3 has a toxic effect on the nervous system. The expression of this enzyme is inhibited by drugs being studied as potential treatment options for cancer and neurodegeneration
Scientists identified a new protein that plays a key role in reprogramming cancer cells to migrate and invade other organs. When that protein is removed from cancer cells in mice models of the disease, the ability of the cells to metastasize to the lungs is dramatically decreased.
Findings published by Northwestern Medicine scientists in Molecular Cell suggest that the upregulation of protein WDR5 may be crucial in prostate cancer development.
Published in Nature Neuroscience, the findings offer a promising route for developing new treatment options in Parkinson’s disease.
