Cancer diagnoses top 2M

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is predicting more than 2 million new cancer diagnoses this year. It is the first time the predicted diagnoses have crossed that threshold, even as overall cancer mortality has dropped in recent years. ACS published the figure, along with its CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, and the patient-facing “Cancer Facts & Figures 2024,” this week.

HIV vaccine search continues

HIV has been a public health issue for years and worldwide affects an estimated 40 million people. But developing a vaccine has not yet been possible. Researchers at Amsterdam UMC, Stanford University, Weill Cornell Medical College and the University of Louisiana aim to build on existing knowledge to change that.

MRI treatment for depression

Researchers found symptoms of severe depression lasted longer in patients when clinicians used MRI and tracking to guide magnetic simulation to the brain. Previously, benefits lasted one to three months, so a longer time could lead to better quality of life, according to a new study and accompanying press release.
