An investigative stem cell-based therapy called PEC-Direct, designed to act as a replacement pancreas, has the potential to provide blood sugar control in patients with high-risk type 1 diabetes, suggests a clinical study presented Saturday, June 11 at ENDO 2022, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga.
Fezolinetant significantly reduced the frequency and severity of moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms (VMS), or hot flashes, associated with menopause, according to a Phase 3 industry-sponsored study being presented Saturday at ENDO 2022, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga.

Women with obesity, even those with regular menstrual cycles, have suppressed ovarian follicle development and reduced production of reproductive hormones, which may underlie reduced fertility, according to a new study being presented Saturday at ENDO 2022, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga.

As the cost of genome and exome sequencing falls, its use in characterizing rare diseases and personalizing cancer treatment, for example, is becoming far more frequent. But such analyses may throw up findings unrelated to the condition for which it has been requested. What to do with these secondary findings (SFs) or incidental findings (IFs) is problematic. Should they be reported to the patient and in what circumstances? How should clinical geneticists deal with the perhaps unnecessary worry that they may cause?
All of the newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme patients enrolled in a Phase 1 clinical trial have exceeded both their median and expected progression-free survivals. Two patients, to date, have exceeded their expected overall survival.

Curtin scientists who analysed seawater samples taken by Jon Sanders on his recent circumnavigation voyage have found microplastics present in the vast majority of samples, including those from very remote areas of the world’s oceans.
Revealed a technology which can remotely control one factory simultaneously from home and abroad using 5G technology developed through international joint research and an intercontinental wired network.

New analysis shows that global aviation could reach near zero emissions by mid-century. The most optimistic scenario puts aviation on a path to reduce GHG emissions by an amount consistent with a 1.75 °C warming. But it would require aggressive policies to peak emissions by 2030 at the very latest.
Since the first hot Jupiter was discovered in 1995, astronomers have been trying to figure out how the searing-hot exoplanets formed and arrived in their extreme orbits. Johns Hopkins University astronomers have found a way to determine the relative age of hot Jupiters using new measurements from the Gaia spacecraft, which is tracking over a billion stars.
Bayes professor and International Longevity Centre (ILC) expert praises action of smoking review which will help to reduce health inequalities and improve people’s lives.
In the lead-up to the release of Webb’s first full-color images and spectroscopic data on July 12, the Webb team is now in the last phase of commissioning the science instruments. The first two instrument modes, NIRCam imaging and NIRISS imaging, have been declared ready for science; watch the “Where is Webb” page as the team works their way through the other 15 instrument modes.
