Guardian of the Cell

Harvard Medical School

Scientists have defined the structure and key features of a human immune-surveillance protein that guards against cancer and bacterial and viral infections The identification of two human-specific variations in the protein closes a critical knowledge gap in immunology and cancer biology The variations explain why the human protein is more precise and more selective than mammalian forms of the protein and why it targets certain types of DNA but ignores others The findings can inform the design of more precisely targeted immune therapies against cancer and a range of immune-mediated diseases

In End-of-Life Cancer Care, Geography May Be Destiny

Harvard Medical School

Research reveals dramatic geographic differences in end-of-life care spending across the United States. Spending variations stemmed from doctors’ beliefs about end-of-life care and style of practice and from availability of health care services. Patient beliefs and preferences did not contribute to spending differences. Health care spending in the last month of life for patients with end-stage cancer in some regions is twice as high as that in other regions. The additional spending is wasteful and possibly harmful.
