Newswise: John Theurer Cancer Center Participating in Early-Phase Study of Immunotherapy-Boosting Treatment

John Theurer Cancer Center Participating in Early-Phase Study of Immunotherapy-Boosting Treatment

Hackensack Meridian Health

Investigators at John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey are participating in a first-in-patients clinical trial assessing VE800, a novel bacteria-containing therapy, in combination with the immunotherapy drug nivolumab. Laboratory research has suggested that VE800 may enhance the effectiveness of drugs like nivolumab.

Newswise: Persistence of gut microbial strains in twins, living apart after cohabitating for decades

Persistence of gut microbial strains in twins, living apart after cohabitating for decades

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Using a genomics strain-tracking bioinformatics tool, analyzed two metagenomic sequencing databases from pairs of twins — one for children who were still living together and the other from adult twins, ages 36 to 80, who then lived apart for periods from one to 59 years.

The Birds and the Bats: Evolving to Fly May Have Had Big Effect on Gut Microbiome

University of California San Diego Health

UC San Diego researchers studied nearly 900 vertebrate species and found that bats have unusual gut microbiomes that more closely resemble those of birds than other mammals, raising questions about how evolutionary pressures change the gut microbiome
