Medscape quoted Michael Passarelli, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, in an article featuring research by other scientists about the risk of cardiovascular disease for patients with colorectal cancer. While colorectal cancer patients have previously relied on body mass index, this study, published in JAMA Oncology, indicates that computed tomography imaging will more accurately predict […]
The Daily Beast quoted Anne Hoen, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, in an article about a prototype screening test developed by Evolve Biosystems to screen for infants with low levels of bifidobacteria, a critical gut bacteria believed to be important for immune health in infants.
Over two million people in the United States undergo cardiac catheterization each year. While the procedure is used effectively for both diagnostic and interventional purposes, it is not without risk: Acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs in up to 14 percent of all patients following a cardiac catheterization and up to […]
Meagan Stabler, Epidemiology Research Scientist, contributed to a study published in Pediatric Research that captured the statewide incidence of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) in West Virginia using a real-time statewide surveillance system. The paper evaluates the extent to which NAS has increased in the past few years in a state […]
