Brain Studies Show Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Gulf War Illness are Distinct Conditions

Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center

Gulf War Illness (GWI) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) share symptoms of disabling fatigue, pain, systemic hyperalgesia (tenderness), negative emotion, sleep and cognitive dysfunction that are made worse after mild exertion (postexertional malaise). Now, neuroscientists at Georgetown University Medical Center have evidence, derived from human brain studies, that GWI and CFS are two distinct disorders that affect the brain in opposing ways.

Newswise: “Metabolic Inhibitor” Compound Extends Survival in Mice with MYC-Expressing Pediatric Brain Tumors

“Metabolic Inhibitor” Compound Extends Survival in Mice with MYC-Expressing Pediatric Brain Tumors

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Versions of an antibiotic drug called DON first isolated from soil bacteria more than 60 years ago have shown promising signs of extending survival in mice models of especially lethal pediatric brain tumors marked by the high expression of a cancer-causing gene known as the MYC oncogene, according to results of two studies from researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

Wired to Think

University of California San Diego

UC San Diego research supplies a blueprint for a future generation of electrode sensors—notably microscopically slender diamond needles—that utilizes existing yet nontraditional materials and fabrication procedures for recording electrical signals from every neuron in the cortex at the same time.
