Long-term study finds faster breast cancer radiation treatment as effective as longer course

McMaster University

Approximately half of the patients were randomly assigned whole breast radiation, delivered once per day over three to five weeks. The other half received external beam APBI, considered to be the least invasive approach to partial breast irradiation, which was given twice a day over five to eight days. The study was long-term, with a median followup of 8.6 years.

Newswise: Novel bioprinter shows potential to speed tissue engineering

Novel bioprinter shows potential to speed tissue engineering

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Researchers have found a way to speed engineered-tissue creation using a novel bioprinter built for $2,000, they report in the journal Micromachines. Building blocks for the tissue are pre-grown spheroids of human induced-pluripotent stem cells that contain 200,000 cells per spheroid.
