Newswise imageA multidisciplinary group of leaders from the Healing After Harm Conference Group, led by Sigall Bell, MD, Researcher at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Linda Kenney, Executive Director of Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS), has established a consensus-driven research agenda with both immediately actionable and longer-term research strategies for health care organizations. The research agenda is designed to create a path forward to inform approaches that better support harmed patients and families.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Could Vitamin B3 Treat Acute Kidney Injury?

Newswise imageA multidisciplinary research team led by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has determined that vitamin B3 has the potential to prevent acute kidney injury. Published in Nature Medicine, the findings bring clinicians one step closer to an accessible and safe therapy for patients who may be at risk.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Study Finds Hospital Quality Report Cards and Readmission Penalties May Not Tell the Whole Story

Newswise imageNew research finds significant differences in hospitals’ performance when readmissions were assessed for non-Medicare patients and for conditions other than those currently reported, showing that when these additional factors are taken into account, half of hospitals would be subject to a change in their financial penalty status.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Study Examines How Hospital Payments for Heart Attack Care May Affect Patient Outcomes

Newswise imageA new, large-scale study – led by researchers at the Smith Center for Outcomes Research in Cardiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and published online today in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes – examined the relationship between 30-day episode spending for inpatient and post-discharge care and patient mortality following a hospital admission for heart attack.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Non-Coding RNA Precision Diagnostics and Therapeutics Core Facility Opens at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Newswise imageThe Cancer Center and the Department of Pathology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) has opened a new state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the study of non-coding RNAs (ncRNA). The Non-Coding RNA Precision Diagnostics and Therapeutics Core Facility will help accelerate the discovery and translation of ncRNA diagnostics and therapeutics, with the hope of leading to better cures and treatments for disease

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Cancer’s Gene-Determined “Immune Landscape” Dictates Progression of Prostate Tumors

Newswise imageThe field of immunotherapy – the harnessing of patients’ own immune systems to fend off cancer – is revolutionizing cancer treatment today. However, clinical trials often show marked improvements in only small subsets of patients, suggesting that as-yet unidentified variations among tumors result in distinct paths of disease progression and response to therapy.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Zika Vaccine Induces Robust Immune Responses in Three Phase 1 Trials

Newswise imageHealthy adults mounted strong immune responses after receiving an investigational whole inactivated Zika virus vaccine, according to interim analyses of three Phase 1, placebo-controlled, double-blind trials conducted at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR), and Saint Louis University School of Medicine. The findings were published today in The Lancet.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Study Finds More Than 1 in 6 Patients With Peripheral Arterial Disease Who Undergo Revascularization Readmitted Within 30 Days

Newswise imageLed by researchers in the Smith Center for Outcomes Research in Cardiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), the large-scale analysis determined that 30 percent of readmissions following peripheral revascularization were related to complications associated with the procedure, while differences in hospital quality accounted only modestly for readmission risk.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Like a Baby: The Vicious Cycle of Childhood Obesity and Snoring

Poor nutrition and lack of exercise lead to the increasing prevalence of obesity which, in turn, is the major predictor of diabetes and future risk of cardiovascular disease in western societies. Excess weight is also closely associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the increasingly common and potentially serious sleep disorder that is often marked by loud snoring. OSA affects about 5 to 10 percent of children 8 to 11 years old. While evidence suggests that OSA appears to exacerbate obesit…

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Study Shows Epidurals Don’t Slow Labor

Newswise imageResearch led by scientists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) demonstrated that epidural medication had no effect on the duration of the second stage of labor, normal vaginal delivery rate, incidence of episiotomy, the position of the fetus at birth or any other measure of fetal well-being the researchers investigated. The study compared the effects of catheter-infused, low-concentration epidural anesthetic to a catheter-infused saline placebo in this double-blinded, randomized tria…
