  3. A new study looks at the relationship between opioid use and driving among older adults.
  4. Researchers have discovered a new class of pipeline drugs to relieve pain and reduce fever without the danger of addiction or damage to the liver or kidneys.
  5. Researchers have identified the epigenetic proteins Tet2 and Tet3 as key regulators of B cell function. They showed that these proteins suppress B cell function and conversely, that Tet2/Tet3 knockout mice develop a mild form of systemic lupus erythematosus due to hyperactivation of T cells. These findings could help develop a novel treatment for autoimmune diseases.
