Welcome to the work week. Here are some good reads to help you get started:
- CAR T-cell therapy works wonders for some cancer patients. For others, it is a death sentence. To make the revolutionary therapy work for more people, scientists must devise better ways to control it
- All of Us aims to compile health and genetic data from one million Americans so scientists can better understand the mechanisms of disease and move more quickly toward personalized treatments.
- The medical establishment once assumed everyone should take vitamins, and universally recommending them has been a hard habit for the doctors to break.
- According to the WHO, around 700,000 people die every year as a result of antibiotic resistance. Scientists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the University of Oxford have now discovered that there is a point in the production process of the proteins at which it can be regulated by bacteria. This could be used as a starting point for the development of new antibiotics and help overcome resistance to antibiotics.
Have a great Monday!
