Cancer patient out-of-pocket costs play major role in treatment adherence
The cost of insurance co-payments for cutting-edge pharmaceuticals can vary widely from patient to patient.

Basch - National standards to evaluate health care quality based on how patients feel
National quality assessment programs usually measure and reward practices based on improving clinical processes such as re-hospitalization or infection rates.

NIH and UNC Researchers Define Role of Protein Vinculin in Cell Movement
Researchers at the University of North Carolina and the National Institutes for Health have defined the role of the protein vinculin in enabling cell movement. In a paper published in the Journal of Cell Biology, Sharon Campbell, PhD, professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics and member of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Clare Waterman of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health showed that cell mobility occurs through the interactions between the protein vinculin and the cytoskeletal lattice formed by the protein actin. By physically binding to the actin that makes up the cytoskeleton, vinculin operates as a form of molecular clutch transferring force and controlling cell motion.
