Study finds combination therapy does little to slow spine damage in radiographic axial spondyloarthritis patients

New research presented this week at ACR Convergence 2022, the American College of Rheumatology’s annual meeting, showed that combining a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug and TNF inhibitor did not significantly slow radiographic spinal progression in radiographic axial spondyloarthritis patients.

Predictive molecular biomarkers for determining neoadjuvant chemosensitivity in muscle invasive bladder cancer

A new research paper was published in Oncotarget entitled “Predictive molecular biomarkers for determining neoadjuvant chemosensitivity in muscle invasive bladder cancer.” Identifying neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) response in patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) has had limited success based on clinicopathological features and molecular subtyping. Identification of chemotherapy responsive cohorts would facilitate delivery to those […]
