A new interactive online tool helps educate practicing oncologists worldwide with therapeutic decision-making for advanced non-small cell lung cancer based on a patient's molecular and clinical characteristics by providing feedback from an expert panel.
In a new paper, Brown University environmental scientists suggest that the way to fill vast gaps in knowledge about the ecological and socioeconomic impacts of ocean energy development is to consider how the benefits provided by ocean ecosystems change before and after the placement of ocean energy infrastructure. The authors examine the case of Muskeget Channel in Massachusetts as an example.
The number of active shooter incidents in US hospitals has increased over the last decade to a frequency of more than one a month. In a new Viewpoint in JAMA, authors suggest that hospitals examine their security plans.
Across the country music teachers believe that factors at the school level have the greatest impact on their programs.

The study reinforces the efficacy of YONDELIS® (trabectedin) in multiple types of soft-tissue sarcoma and supports that long-term treatment delays disease progression. Even in heavily pretreated patients, the efficacy outcomes of the drug were similar or improved compared to historical controls.
A state-of-the-art optical atomic clock, collaboratively developed by scientists from the University of Warsaw, Jagiellonian University, and Nicolaus Copernicus University, is now 'ticking away' at the National Laboratory of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics in Toru, Poland. As the first of its kind in Poland and one of just a handful of clocks of this caliber in the world, the new clock will keep track of the passage of time with extraordinary precision.
