New method of administering anti-cancer drug may be more effective, safer

..., on average the variability between the test-dose prediction and the actual levels had grown to more than 20 percent. The new method may prevent side effects and increase effectiveness by maintaining a more consistent level of drug in the blood and avoiding extreme highs and lows, Shea said. "We hope this no...

Visits by children aged 0-2 provided the best prediction of mortality, but those of 3- and 4-year-olds followed close behind, suggesting that preschoolers, not just infants and toddlers, are important spreaders of flu to vulnerable groups. "The data make sense because preschools and daycares, with their cl...

Microarray technology could help predict patient response to adjuvant therapy for breast cancer

...the researchers gave significantly better(P=0.007) prediction rates than histological grading, tumour stage and age -which are all accepted prognostic markers for breast cancer.
