Patients with a condition known as lung nodules may soon be breathing a bit more easily, thanks to research funding granted to the University of California, Davis  and a new diagnostic technology tested in a 2016 study at the Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University. Lung nodules are usually benign, small lesions often found in CT chest scans. While only 2% of these nodules end up being cancerous, they still require examination and monitoring to ensure the safety of the patient.

Study Shows Chemopreventative Potential of Kava-Derived Compound

"ALCOHOL IS SO 2014. TRY KAVA!

suggests a sandwich board on Tenth Street between First Avenue and Avenue A, in the East Village.

Sometimes, the most simple and elegant solution to a problem has already been known for centuries. In 2014, University of Minnesota researchers explored the medicinal capacity of an ancient plant -  Piper methysticum, c ommonly known as kava. However, concerns about kava being toxic to the liver have resulted in diminished use. Now, a recently published study has found that a specific kava derivative may have potential to combat cancer without causing any damage to liver cells.

Thomas Jefferson Researchers Uncover Link Between Lung Cancer and Conserved Gene

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Mar 30, 2016

Lung cancer is one of the most common types of cancers and is responsible for the most cancer deaths each year. Due to its prevalence, lung cancer is a point of study for many researchers around the world. Just this year, researchers from the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia have discovered that the gene Nitrilase 1 (Nit1) plays a large role in the proliferation of cancer cells.
