Researchers have found that kidney transplant could result in increased chances of cancer.
This study has been conducted by Italian researchers and published online in the European Journal of Cancer.
Researchers in this study worked on 7,217 kidney transplant recipients, in whom the transplantation was done in the years between 1997 and 2007, and followed up until 2009.
Researchers found that 395 patients were diagnosed with de novo cancers including Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS), post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD), particularly non-Hodgkin’ lymphoma (NHL), lung, kidney and prostate as the most common types.
A team of scientists from Italy have rejected the “faster than light” particle finding.
ICARUS – another experiment at Gran Sasso, which is present under the mountains and operated by Italy’s National Institute of National Physics – have put an argument that neutrinos energy on arrival have contradicted the readings.
Fernando Ferroni, particle physicist, took the charge of Italy’s National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) at the end of the last month. He is the member of the Conseil Scientifique of IN2P3.
Ferroni works at Sapienza University of Rome as a professor and has also worked on CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland, INFN’s Gran Sasso laboratory and the SLAC National Accelerator laboratory in California. He has more than 700 papers published on refereed journals and has total number of citations greater than 20,000 and h-index of greater than 70.
