Untreated high blood pressure and anemia in pregnancy help explain why childbirth complications are more common in non-white populations, two studies led by Stanford Medicine researchers found.
An LGBTQ-inclusive data set
Previous large health studies didn’t collect sexual orientation and gender identity information. A Stanford Medicine study finds the All of Us Research Program a boon to LGBTQ health researchers, future health outcomes.
IVF screening reduces costs
Stanford Medicine researchers find that using in vitro fertilization with testing embryos for inherited diseases would significantly reduce costs.
Extra income and cancer risk factors
Cancer disproportionately impacts persistently impoverished communities. A federal grant unites Stanford Medicine, UC Davis and UCSF to study income supplementation and cancer risk factors.
Screening for chronic kidney disease
Many people don’t know they have chronic kidney disease until it progresses. A new study by Stanford Medicine researchers finds that screening would increase life expectancy in a cost-effective way.
Osteoarthritis linked to allergic inflammation
A connection found between asthma, eczema and osteoarthritis indicates that drugs to treat allergic conditions could be used in future studies aimed at slowing the progression of osteoarthritis.
Stanford Medicine gives to the community
Stanford Medicine donated more than $950 million in funds and services during the 2022 fiscal year, focusing on access to health care, housing and nutrition.
Hemorrhage toolkit is cost-effective
A statewide quality-improvement project to treat excessive bleeding during childbirth averts $9 million annually in California’s health care costs, a Stanford Medicine-led study found.
Stanford Medicine on social determinants of health
The new issue of Stanford Medicine magazine features articles about the ways nonmedical factors can help or hinder our health and presents initiatives to promote health equity.
‘Digital human’ helps reduce knee stress
A computer simulation that relates muscle activation patterns to harmful pressure on the knee helps participants adopt knee-protective strategies as they walk.
Marijuana can damage heart
Marijuana use and heart-attack risk were correlated in a large human study, Stanford scientists and their collaborators found. A molecule in soybeans may counteract these effects.
Transfusion boosts brain function
In a Stanford study, sedentary mice appear to benefit from another same-aged mouse’s exercise — if they receive injections of its blood.
