Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, fewer children than usual have visited emergency rooms. But doctors across the country say they have seen a growing number of children who suffered broken bones on bikes and trampolines, accidental poisonings, and other severe injuries during the widespread lockdowns. In fact, recent research conducted by experts at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) published in the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics suggests a need for increased awareness of at-home safety measures.
The Wistar Institute, an international biomedical research leader in cancer, immunology and infectious diseases, announces the appointment of Chengyu Liang, M.D., Ph.D., as professor in the Molecular & Cellular Oncogenesis Program of The Wistar Institute Cancer Center.
The effects of COVID-19 have dramatically changed the way we live, learn and work. While many things have come to a standstill, Wistar research has never stopped and even new educational projects have managed to come to fruition. One shining addition to the Institute this summer is the newly constructed, state-of-the-art educational biomedical training suite.
Despite an unprecedented volume of research, there are still many unanswered questions on COVID-19, especially regarding the extremely varied clinical course the disease takes, ranging from asymptomatic to severe, even fatal. The evidence collected so far points to the so called “cytokine storm” as a major factor determining the final outcome.
The Wistar Institute, a biomedical research leader in cancer, immunology and infectious diseases, and Allevi, Inc. a Philadelphia based startup pioneering innovative 3D biofabrication technologies, announce a collaboration to use 3D bioprinting to help combat COVID-19.
Jefferson Health has named Brian Sweeney as president and chief operating officer of its New Jersey division. Sweeney, a 23-year Jefferson Health veteran, began his career as a registered nurse. He had been serving as interim president since early March when he took over the job previously held Joseph D. Devine.
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia once again grabbed the No. 2 spot on U.S. News and World Report's annual ranking of the country's best pediatric medical centers.
Young patients with no risk factors for stroke may have an increased risk if they have contracted COVID-19, whether or not they are showing symptoms of the disease. Surgeons at Thomas Jefferson University and collaborators analyzed patients presenting with stroke from March 20th until April 10th at their institutions. The strokes they observed were unlike what they usually see.
Michael Baram, MD, and other pulmonary researchers at Thomas Jefferson University partnered with the Jefferson Clinical Research Institute (JCRI) to get one of the first COVID-19 related clinical trials up and running in record time at Thomas Jefferson University.
The micronutrient zinc administered orally as zinc gluconate (an over-the-counter lozenge) may help to prevent cancer of the esophagus in patients diagnosed with the pre-malignant condition called Barrett’s esophagus (BE), according to the results of a first-ever pilot study in humans conducted, in part, by investigators at the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) and physicians at the Lankenau Medical Center.
