‘This partnership supplies the research community a new sphere of engagement,’ says Robert L. Comis, MD, Chair of ECOG. ‘It’ll greatly enhance our placement in the general public and personal sectors to perform biomarker-driven studies and develop even more innovative clinical trial styles. ACRIN has an exceptional imaging study program and IT infrastructure which can be applied to compile and shop not only radiologic pictures, but also, relevant laboratory based images. Our modality and disease committees will have the opportunity to become involved in the development of leading edge early recognition and diagnostic studies, and ACRIN investigators will benefit from being built-into our therapeutically oriented applications fully.’ ‘We are excited by the ECOG partnership possibility to develop a unique multidisciplinary company positioned to study the complete cancer care route from early recognition through management of advanced disease,’ says Mitchell D.Today, it’s the sixth leading reason behind death in the United States. Currently, the known risk factors for Alzheimer’s are age, family history and genetics, though injury could be linked with the condition also. Heart health has long been suspected to are likely involved, but is not linked. The Intermountain INFIRMARY study bolsters that connection. ‘The study shows a link between atrial fibrillation and all types of dementia,’ stated Bunch.’ Atrial fibrillation may be the most common heart rhythm problem, affecting about 2.2 million Americans.
