Ketoprofen treats symptoms of lymphedema
Two early-stage clinical trials led by Stanford researchers have shown that ketoprofen can improve skin damage in patients with lymphedema.
Concussion study in high school football
Three Bay Area high school football teams have been outfitted with mouthguards that measure head motion. Stanford scientists hope to use the data to better understand what causes concussions.
Bloodstream pathogens often come from gut
A computational tool designed by Stanford scientists makes it easier to identify the source of bloodstream infections and, ideally, rid patients of reservoirs where potentially troublesome microbes reside.
Rearranging genome with CRISPR
Using a new variation of gene-editing technology CRISPR, Stanford scientists were able to change the spatial organization of DNA in cell nuclei and show how physical relocation altered cell function.
Undiagnosed patients get answers
A network of doctors that aims to diagnose mystery diseases has named 31 newly identified conditions and diagnosed more than 100 previously unsolved cases, according to a new study.
Mutations point to possible drug targets
Genetic data from nearly 300,000 patients has helped scientists find new potential drug targets for heart disease and diabetes, while shedding more light on the genetics of cholesterol, according to a new study.
Height may contribute to varicose veins
In the largest genetic study of varicose veins ever completed, Stanford researchers and their collaborators provide evidence that being tall is a risk factor for the condition.
Human skeletal stem cell identified
Identification of the human skeletal stem cell by Stanford scientists could pave the way for regenerative treatments for bone fractures, arthritis and joint injuries.
Human ‘exposome’ revealed
Stanford scientists have measured the human “exposome,” or the particulates, chemicals and microbes that individually swaddle us all, in unprecedented detail.
