Heart

Collaborating a huge amount of data taken from past research with information from over five hundred patients, an international researchers’ team from John Hopkins has come up with a computer-based set of rules that correctly predicts when individuals with an uncommon heart issue may benefit or not from crucial inserted defibrillators. Latest study released online on March 27 in the European Heart Journal offers physicians with a risk prediction tool

Stability Testing

Determining the steadiness of pharmaceutical products is important in order to ensure safety of the patient & desired clinical results. The presence of harmful degradation products & loss of efficiency may lead to dangerous consequences. Therefore, stability testing takes place routinely on pharmaceutical products at every stage of development. Testing is necessary to assure that drug product retains the required efficiency & purity after it’s transported & stored. Different components

HIV Treatment

A clinical trial conducted at four National Institutes of Health funded Centers for AIDS Research all over the US shows that over eighty percent of people who started HIV treatment immediately after its detection retained viral suppression after forty-eight weeks. Individuals who were a part of the clinical trial, known as iENGAGE attained suspension of virus in an average of only sixty-three days. The results were shown in a poster

Audio Bracelet

A new product called Audio Bracelet for Blind Interactions is designed specifically keeping kids in mind. It is a device, which is strapped to a kid’s wrist and it offers additional feedback for kids who are visually impaired. The bracelet is not bigger than a wristwatch and it helps to sense body motion & offer the wearer with geographical information about the location of the movement based on series of

Virus

Researchers at the Harvard University and the Broad Institute of MIT have recently build a computational method that designs ‘molecular baits’ for every  virus strain infectious to human beings, including Zika viruses that are difficult to detect in clinical samples due to low abundance. As reported in the journal Nature Biotechnology, the new technology could help all genomic sequencing centers in the world monitor diseases more effectively and low cost,

Quantum Sensor

University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) researchers have come up with a quantum sensor. This new senor has proven its ability to exceed current technologies & holds a lot of potential in long-range three-dimensional imaging & examining cancer treatments success. Features of Quantum Sensors Quantum sensors are first of their type & are based on semiconductor nanowires which can identify light’s single particles with high timing resolution, effectiveness

Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

According to information from a clinical trial held at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia’s Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, latest smart drug holds a lot of potential for women suffering from metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. The trial’s research was released on February 25, 2019 in New England Journal of Medicine. Research’s senior author Kevin Kalinsky stated that the drug may possibly alter practice due to the fact that the results are extremely convincing,

Implantable Pacemaker

It comes as no doubt that implantable have significantly affected the world of modern medicine, specifically, implantable pacemaker. It has saved several lives by controlling rhythm of the heart. Even though they save lives, there’s one disadvantage to it, batteries only function for five to twelve years. When the batteries run out, implantable pacemaker needs to be replaced via an operation. As per a report released in ACS Nano, researchers

Pancreatic Cancers

A team of scientists at the Francis Crick Institute has recently developed a new technique to study tissue samples in three-dimension (3D). It has uncovered that onset and proliferation of pancreatic cancers can occur in two distinct ways, solving an age-old mystery of how tumors form. It could also help scientists and researchers to obtain more information from tissue biopsies and will possibly lead to better treatment for pancreatic cancers,

Drug Sponge

A group of researchers from University of California, Berkeley and University of California, San Francisco has recently developed a tiny polymer drug sponge, which is set to absorb excess chemotherapy agents from the bloodstream after they have reached the target. As reported in the journal ACS Central Science, the new drug sponge is aimed to minimize the ill side effects of toxic chemotherapy drugs which have potent effect against tumors,
