On this week's program, scientist Dr. Richard Vile describes how a teenage girl with brain cancer changed the focus of his research. And, Dr. Robert Jenkins, a pathologist and specialist in laboratory genetics, explains new research that may lead to more effective treatments for gliomas ... a type of brain cancer that's particularly hard to treat. Also on the program, orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Sperling talks about rotator cuff injury ... what it is and how it's repaired. And, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that about 240 people go to the emergency room each day during the weeks around the Fourth of July with fireworks-related injuries. Surgeon and trauma specialist Dr. Donald Jenkins discusses the hazards of using fireworks at home.
