Lung cancer is one of the most dangerous forms of cancer. Treatments are available, but they are demanding on patients and less than 30 percent survive. But mRNA technology is offering new hope for higher survival rates because treatments target the malignant cells in an entirely new way.
Patients with morbid obesity experienced improvement in their quality of life and distinctly fewer episodes of overeating after ten weeks with a new treatment method developed at NTNU.
Researchers are on the trail of a new method to protect against heart damage after cancer treatment.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is both bothersome and painful. Less well known is the risk of premature death, because the disease can contribute to a less healthy lifestyle.
Even the toughest “soldiers” in our immune system are not tenacious enough to knock out cancerous tumours. NTNU professor Øyvind Halaas aims to do something about that.
Several commonly prescribed medications used for completely different illnesses can enhance or reduce the activity of the influenza virus.
The cytotoxic drugs used in chemotherapy can themselves contribute to the cancer cells developing resistance to treatment.
NTNU researchers are on track to find drug combinations that could help stop the coronavirus across the globe.
Some patients are more profitable for Norwegian hospitals than others. Most hospital physicians believe that managers care too much about the financial operation of hospitals.
Many low and middle-income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, don’t have enough surgeons to perform vital surgeries, such as groin hernia repairs. Training non-doctor associate clinicians in this procedure provides a safe and effective solution, a new study shows.
It’s easy to believe that society’s treatment of difficult, violent and criminally mentally ill people has become more humane over time. But that’s not the case. How patients at the end of the 19th century actually felt is difficult to say, but they were at least less exposed to mechanical coercion, according to an NTNU historian.
Gene therapy is the most effective method to be able to provide health benefits you normally gain through physical exercise. This means of “training” could be helpful for folks who can’t exercise in the usual ways.
Between 250 and 270 people die each year from heroin or opioid overdoses in Norway. In the EU, thousands die. European users now have a better option available for helping each other.
Certain type of cancer drugs that promote the death of cells can actually be harmful if combined with other treatments that damage our DNA, RNA or proteins, researchers have found.
Chronic intestinal inflammation requires special individualized treatment. Finding the right treatment for each person may soon become easier.
Cancer researcher Marit Otterlei made a chance discovery of a brand new antibiotic that has proven effective after several experiments.
One combination of two drugs was so effective that researchers hope others can begin clinical trials on the drugs now.
A daily 10-minute training session using an app could reduce migraine attacks for many sufferers, according to researchers.
There’s no effective treatment for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, which was first detected in Wuhan, China. Developing new drugs and vaccines can take years. Existing drugs offer a possible quick response to the potential pandemic.
Nearly 40 million people were living with HIV in 2017, the UN says, with just over half taking antiretroviral therapy. These drugs have cut AIDS-related deaths by more than half since the 2004 peak, but the disease cannot be cured. A new mechanism uncovered by a Norwegian research group could improve the chances of developing one.
An analysis of 5 000 proteins from a blood sample is providing valuable information on a variety of diseases we might get or be at risk for. “Sensational” is the word from Christian Jonasson at the HUNT Research Centre about the US-British-Norwegian study.
