New Closed-Loop System Offers Promise as Novel Treatment for Post-Bariatric Hypoglycemia

Joslin Diabetes Center

Post-bariatric hypoglycemia is a profoundly life-altering condition for patients. Having unpredictable hypoglycemia that people can't detect is really an unsafe situation. Researchers at Joslin Diabetes Center and Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have developed a closed-loop system that automatically provides patients with an appropriate, as-needed dose of liquid glucagon to treat this condition.

Mayo Clinic研究发现,许多较年轻的胃癌患者有独特的疾病特征

Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic的一项新研究发现,许多60岁以下的胃癌患者的疾病“在基因和临床上均具有独特性”。该研究发现,与年长患者所患有的胃癌相比,这种新的早发性胃癌,其生长和扩散速度通常更快,预后更差,并且对传统化疗的耐药性更高。该研究最近发表于《外科手术》(Surgery)期刊。
