Nanofibrous Scaffolds Created For Regenerative Heart Medicine

Researchers from Biophysics departments have expanded greater understanding about the structure of nanofibrous scaffolds, termed nanoscaffolds in a study that is researching heart tissue regeneration. They have studied the structure of a nanofibrous scaffold, as well as its interaction with rat cardiac cells, as part of a study into heart tissue regeneration. The study was published in the journal Acta Biomaterialia.

Pascal System In Patient With Tricuspid Regurgitation

Researchers have performed a procedure using a new device called the Pascal system in a patient with tricuspid regurgitation – a condition in which the valve separating the two right chambers of the heart is leaking. This can cause the heart to enlarge, eventually leading to symptoms of heart failure such as shortness of breath, fatigue and leg swelling. The study has been published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Cardiovascular Interventions.

Evolutionary Change In Protein Function

Researchers evaluated the proteins that regulate cell operations do not confine their research to understanding the molecules. They also look deep into the proteins' evolutionary past to explore what structures have allowed proteins with new functions to develop in response to new needs. The study was published in the journal Science.
