Yao Lu et.al. conducted a study to  analyze and compare the clinical and functional outcomes of distal tibia fractures treated with intramedullary nailing using the suprapatellar and infrapatellar surgical approaches. The researchers concluded that in the treatment of distal tibia fractures, the suprapatellar intramedullary nailing technique is associated with a significantly higher functional outcome, lower knee pain, and lower rate of fracture deformity than the infrapatellar intramedullary nailing technique.

K. Vanhaverbeke et.al. conducted a study to provide an overview of imaging techniques for detecting lung abnormalities in patients with Bronchopulmonary dysplasia in all age ranges. The researchers concluded that Several imaging and scoring methods indicate that lung imaging continues to play a role in Bronchopulmonary dysplasia care. Standardization and correlation with functional and clinical outcomes will become increasingly important for further research.

Fanqin Wei et.al. conducted a study to to develop an effective method of reducing metal artifacts in cochlear implant electrodes. The researchers concluded that the combination of single-energy metal artifact reduction with multi-planar reconstruction and maximum intensity projection is beneficial for evaluating the position and number of cochlear implant electrodes.

A clinical trial suggests that people with knee osteoarthritis who take daily turmeric capsules feel less pain in the knee joint than their peers who don't take this supplement. "The moderate effect we found in our trial from a short-term study is reassuring for turmeric as a treatment option," said senior study author Dr Benny Eathakkttu Antony of the Menzies Institute for Medical Research at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, Australia.

Daniel G. Whitney et.al. conducted a study to determine prevalence of major noncommunicable diseases in young adults with pediatric-onset disabilities and compared it in adults without pediatric onset disabilities. The researchers found that young adults with pediatric onset disabilities showed an early onset of several noncommunicable diseases. They were contributors to global and national burden of disease and mortality.

This is the first study where BAY1163877 is given to humans. Impact of the study is to evaluate if patients with advanced solid cancers show advanced clinical benefit under the treatment with the pan FGFR inhibitor. Patients (all comers) will receive the study drug treatment in a dose-escalation scheme (no placebo group) to determine the safety, tolerability and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of BAY1163877.

Georgios Tsakonas et.al. conducted a study to understand the alterations in gene expression in brain metastasis versus primary tumour as it may increase aggressiveness and impair therapeutic efforts. The researchers concluded  identified a unique gene downregulation pattern in brain metastases compared with primary tumours. This finding may explain the lower intracranial efficacy of systemic therapy, especially immunotherapy, in brain metastasis of patients with non–small-cell lung cancer.

As many as half of patients diagnosed with metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer will see their cancer spread to their brain. Though brain metastases, or "Brain Mets," are rare, they are exceedingly difficult to treat, so these patients experience poor outcomes. At this year’s ASCO meeting, Dr. Nancy Lin of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute presented promising results from the HER2CLIMB trial for these patients. In this video BCRF talks with Dr. Lin about her research focus, Brain Mets, and HER2CLIMB’s findings.

Stavros Stamiris et.al. presented a case of a 42-year-old male who presented to the emergency department of our military hospital with reported mild low back pain, associated with numbness in his right leg below the knee, and ipsilateral complete foot drop that occurred during a military march. The case underlines the need for a high index of suspicion when dealing with cases of acute peroneal palsy without any accompanying symptoms.
