Children with recurrent brain tumors or newly diagnosed, particularly aggressive tumors called diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas are being enrolled in the first study to examine the efficacy of a drug that inhibits an enzyme these tumors use to...
Insomnia is a driver of suicide, and particularly people with severe insomnia may safely benefit from taking a sedative to help address their sleep problems as it reduces their suicidal thoughts, investigators report.
Successive bouts of compressing then relaxing a limb with a blood pressure-like cuff to prepare the brain to better weather the lack of oxygen that occurs in stroke is one of six approaches being evaluated in the first national, head-on comparison...
A big way chemotherapy works is by prompting cancer cells to commit suicide, and scientists have found a pathway the most common lung cancer walks to avoid death.
Paul Tran is working to develop a highly predictive genetic risk score that will tell parents whether their baby is at significant risk for type 1 diabetes.
When someone is depressed and having suicidal thoughts or their depression treatment just isn’t working, caregivers might want to check to see if they have obstructive sleep apnea, investigators say.
MCG researchers determine which platform is best to rapidly measure how fast the blood is coagulating during surgery.
MCG scientists have discovered the chronic activation of the Adora2a receptor is one way obesity and insulin resistance break down one of the the brain's protections against memory loss and confusion.
Our bodies are continuously concocting specific antibodies to thwart invaders like a virus or even pollen, and scientists have new information about how the essential production gets fired up and keeps up.
Scientists report that mice whose neurons don’t make estrogen have impaired spatial reference memory as well as recognition memory and contextual fear memory.
Dr. Xin-Yun Lu and her team have found inactive SIRT1 in the prefrontal cortex. Activating it may help turn classic symptoms of depression around, particularly in males.

Dr. Satish S.C. Rao is helping lead a federally funded initiative that will provide the first head-to-head comparison of the benefits, side effects and costs of three Food and Drug Administration-approved treatments already in regular use.
Scientists are working to analyze the genes of hundreds of patients born with a missing or underdeveloped vagina and uterus to get a better idea about causes, improve genetic counseling and improve treatment.
Lingering inflammation in the colon is a known risk factor for colorectal cancer, and now scientists report one way it resets the stage to enable this common and often deadly cancer.
There’s more evidence that a high-fat diet is bad for both younger males and females, but exactly how it’s harmful may differ between the sexes, scientists report.
Scientists at MCG are studying ways to improve cognition and reduce weight gain in patients with schizophrenia.
For the first time, scientists have described the body’s natural mechanism for temporarily protecting the powerhouses of kidney cells when injury or disease means they aren’t getting enough blood or oxygen.
An MCG lab has been designated to help with patient testing for a trial assessing the effectiveness of targeting cancer-causing gene changes rather than cancer type.
