The results of a new public opinion survey conducted by Research!America sheds light on the perception Americans have of clinical trials and may hold the key to the patient recruitment problem. The survey found 86 percent of Americans felt their healthcare professionals should discuss clinical trials with patients diagnosed with a disease, and that those discussions should be part of their standard of care.
In a recent survey conducted by Research!America and the Association of Clinical Research Organizations, researchers outline the views of the public in order to expand understanding of their views on health, research and technological utilization.
FASEB MARC (Maximizing Access to Research Careers) Program has announced the travel award recipients for the FASEB 2017 Postdoctoral Preparation Institute (2017 PPI) in National Harbor, MD from August 10-11, 2017. These awards are meant to help support the participation of postdoctoral fellows, new assistant professors and advanced graduate students who soon will be transitioning into their first independent positions. This year MARC conferred 44 awards totaling $55,000.
The sixth annual BioArt competition, a celebration of the artistic side of scientific research, is now open for entries. Through the competition, FASEB aims to highlight the breadth of biomedical and life science studies, ranging from bacterial biofilms to organism development. The BioArt collection also depicts the wide variety of cutting-edge technologies employed by investigators. The deadline for submissions to this year’s BioArt competition is August 31.

An Interesting Case of a Bilious Pleural Effusion
Malignant pleural effusions are common complications in patients with primary or metastatic cancer to the lungs. In this article, we describe a unique case of a patient with history of diffuse pulmonary metastases from gallbladder adenocarcinoma who acutely developed a bilious pleural effusion following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. We believe the bilious pleural effusion (cholethorax or bilothorax) developed as a complication of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography rather than tumor burden causing a fistula from the biliary tree to the right pleural space. We discuss possible mechanisms of formation of the bilious pleural effusion in our patient and present a literature review of previously reported cases of bilious pleural effusions.

National Institutes of Health scientists have developed a mouse model to study Zika virus transmitted sexually from males to females, as well as vertically from a pregnant female to her fetus. They are using the model to study how and when the virus is spread, including how the virus crosses the placenta, as well as to investigate potential treatments to block virus transmission.
