Researchers are learning more about ways to predict the likelihood of newborn complications from early in pregnancy using samples provided by the Indiana University School of Medicine Building Blocks of Pregnancy Biobank.
A group of researchers including Chandy John, MD, from Indiana University School of Medicine, published a study in the New England Journal of Medicine showing malaria chemoprevention reduces morbidity and mortality in children with severe anemia.
Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine have published their work about a specific type of childhood cancer in the peer-reviewed, international oncology journal, Cancers. This research involves a combination therapy that significantly slows tumor growth in models, which includes a model established from cells taken from tumors donated by Tyler Trent.
Scientists have found that insulin has met an evolutionary cul-de-sac, limiting its ability to adapt to obesity and thereby rendering most people vulnerable to Type 2 diabetes. A recent study from scientists at Indiana University School of Medicine, the University of Michigan and Case Western Reserve University has determined that the sequence of insulin has become entrenched at the edge of impaired production, an intrinsic vulnerability unmasked by rare mutations in the insulin gene causing diabetes in childhood
Indiana University School of Medicine researchers are participating in the Rare and Atypical Diabetes Network (RADIANT), a nationwide study funded by the National Institutes of Health. The study seeks to discover new forms of diabetes, identify their causes, and understand how they differ from more common types of diabetes.
Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine are learning more about how a person’s genes play a role in the possibility they’ll suffer from alcoholic cirrhosis with the discovery of a gene that could make the disease less likely.
A study conducted by Indiana University School of Medicine researchers has shown that asymptomatic COVID-19 infection is possible in children younger than 10 years old. The researchers have shared the results of their novel COVID-19 study of asymptomatic children and adults in Marion County known as TACTIC (Tracking Asymptomatic COVID-19 Through Indianapolis Communities).
Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine have discovered new information about how a dangerous parasite takes control of a patient’s cells as it spreads throughout their body, an important finding that could help in the development of new drugs to treat this infection.
