A major limitation of insomnia treatments is the lack of providers to deliver CBT, but this study used an online platform that made it easily accessible to users. It also automated and tailored the treatment based on the user's sleep patterns.

Enzymes 'partner up' to accelerate cancer, aging diseases
Researchers have identified cellular processes that appear to supercharge both the growth and shrinkage of the chemical 'caps' on chromosomes associated with aging, called telomeres.

Lung cancer drug could be repurposed to target 'zombie' proteins linked to leukemia
A new study highlights how a clinically approved lung cancer drug could potentially be 'repurposed' to design new treatments for future cancer therapies. The research focuses on a protein called TRIB2, which is linked to promoting survival and drug resistance in solid tumors and blood cancers and is therefore of particular interest as a therapeutic target.

Genetic testing: Not a one-and-done deal
A study that reviewed genetic testing results from 1.45 million individuals found that nearly 25 percent of 'variants of uncertain significance' were subsequently reclassified -- sometimes as less likely to be associated with cancer, sometimes as more likely.

Molecular channel that regulates blood pressure described
New research for the first time reveals the three-dimensional structure of a membrane channel that's critical in controlling blood pressure. The findings represent the first time the human epithelial sodium channel has been shown so precisely since it was first isolated and described through expression cloning more than two decades ago.

Diagnosing types of fear of falling in Parkinson's patients
Parkinson's disease causes one of the highest risks of falling among all neurological conditions. Due to this, many patients develop a fear of falling, even if they've never fallen. Researchers have discovered a way to diagnose subtypes of fear of falling in hopes of improving treatment and quality of life for patients.

Skin wounds in older mice are less likely to scar
Researchers have discovered a rare example in which the mammalian body functions better in old age. A team has found that, in skin wounds in mice, being older increased tissue regeneration and decreased scar formation. The same findings were confirmed in studies of human tissue.

Study shows value of breast cancer patients seeking second opinions
In a recent study on the value of a second opinion for breast cancer patients, researchers concluded that a review by a tumor board at an NCI-Designated Cancer Center changed the diagnosis for 43 percent of the patients.

Promising novel treatment against Alzheimer's disease
New research reveals that a novel drug reverses memory deficits and stops Alzheimer disease pathology (AD) in an animal model. Importantly, this drug has already proven to be non-toxic for humans in a clinical setting and could, therefore, be brought quickly to trials in humans against AD.
