Infections impact blood vessel repair within the meninges following TBI or other cerebrovascular injuries
Viral Infection Slows Blood Vessel Repair After TBI: Seven days after mTBI, the blood vessels (stained in red) in the tissues around the brain are not completely repaired. A marker for intact vessels was used (labeled in green) to distinguish fully functional blood vessels (yellow) from ones that are still damaged (red).McGavern Lab, NINDS

Research shows ozone as a potential disinfectant agent in public transport
The Hydrens team of researchers developed a numerical model that estimates the ozone concentration needed to meet the disinfection criteria. To do this, it takes into account the geometry and volume of the space to be treated, the type of materials inside it and their capacity to absorb ozone, and the characteristics of the impulsion-distribution system used.

Melanomas that metastasize to the adrenal gland are resistant to checkpoint inhibitors
Recent advances in immunotherapy have allowed doctors at the University of Colorado Cancer Center to more effectively treat melanomas that spread to other parts of the body. Immunotherapy drugs such as checkpoint inhibitors, which are commonly used to treat melanomas, work to strengthen a patient's immune system so that it can prevent a tumor from "turning off" the ability of the immune system to fight it.

Researchers identify potential approach to eliminate race from equations to estimate kidney function
Researchers have identified an approach to remove race from equations used to estimate a person's kidney function. These equations have been criticized for potentially perpetuating racial health disparities. The findings, reported September 23 in the New England Journal of Medicine, are expected to inform National Kidney Foundation–American Society of Nephrology Task Force guidelines on evaluating kidney function.
