EHRs for Fido
A team led by scientists at the School of Medicine has developed an algorithm that can read the typed-out notes from veterinarians and predict specific diseases that the animal may have.
Gun laws and child gun deaths
States with strict gun laws have lower rates of gun deaths among children and teenagers, and laws to keep guns away from minors are linked with fewer gun suicides in this age group, a Stanford study found.
The basics of acute flaccid myelitis
Small clusters of cases of infectious paralysis are occurring in young children across North America. A Stanford pediatric neurologist is working to understand the disease.
New country, new bone marrow
Ikkei Takeuchi suffered from unexplained bone marrow failure. But with the help of his little brother and doctors at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, he’s on the road to recovery.
Air Cube touches down at hospital
The new Stanford Hospital gets its first commissioned piece of art.
No survival benefit with new cancer drug
Cisplatin chemotherapy can bring lasting adverse health effects, but a new, presumably less-toxic alternative is not as effective at promoting survival, according to a large, Stanford-led trial.
Farming linked to gut microbiome changes
Researchers at Stanford and several other institutions have linked the gut ecosystems of four Himalayan groups to the extent of each group’s departure from a hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
Puzzle of mutated gene in Parkinson’s
Why a defective gene is tied so strongly to Parkinson’s disease has baffled researchers. Now, a study led by Stanford scientists appears to have pieced together a major part of the puzzle.
$9.6 million grant to Stanford team
The Stanford project, led by neuroscientists Tony Wyss-Coray and Marion Buckwalter, will focus on the influence of immune factors and systemic inflammation on the brain.
Surgery best appendicitis treatment
Treating appendicitis with antibiotics alone is more costly and results in higher rates of hospital readmissions, Stanford researchers found.
Investigating preeclampsia, heart disease
Stanford researchers will study the connections between preeclampsia in pregnant women and the subsequent risk of atherosclerosis as the women grow older.
Four faculty named to endowed positions
Andra Blomkalns, Gerald Grant, David Kingsley and Crystal Mackall have been appointed to endowed professorships.
Using ultrasound to release drug
Stanford researchers used focused ultrasound to pry molecules of an anesthetic loose from nanoparticles. The drug’s release modified activity in brain regions targeted by the ultrasound beam.
