In a study of mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine doses given at Stanford Medicine, vaccine allergies were rare, mild and mostly triggered by a vaccine additive, not the mRNA.
Parents want to know cost of kids’ hospitalizations
Most parents with children in the hospital want to learn what the stay will cost, but few are having conversations about money with hospital representatives, according to a study led by Stanford Medicine researchers.
Statins could treat ulcerative colitis
People with ulcerative colitis who are also taking statins have about a 50% decreased risk of colectomies and hospitalization, according to a Stanford Medicine study.
Data consult helps in diagnosis, treatment
Stanford Medicine researchers created a new type of medical consult that harnesses millions of electronic health records to bring new insights to patient care.
Severe COVID-19, autoantibodies linked
A study spearheaded by Stanford researchers indicates that at least 1 in 5 hospitalized COVID-19 patients develops new antibodies that attack their own tissue within a week of admission.
With gift, Alzheimer’s center renamed
In addition to supporting the nationally recognized research center, the Good Planet Foundation has endowed a professorship in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences.
$31 million for stem cell clinical trials
The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has awarded $31 million to three Stanford researchers to launch trials of treatments for common diseases. Four other Stanford researchers also received a total of $4.55 million.
Once-nightly narcolepsy drug is effective
A phase 3 study has found that an extended-release version of sodium oxybate reduces daytime sleepiness and attacks of muscle weakness in narcolepsy patients.

Study: Surgical masks reduce COVID-19 spread
Researchers found that surgical masks impede the spread of COVID-19 and that just a few, low-cost interventions increase mask-wearing compliance.
Old skeletal stem cells hinder healing
Researchers have found that old skeletal stem cells contribute to bone fragility and poor healing in mice, but that a stem cell-boosting gel may help restore function.
