Protein Fragment Serve As A Drug Target In Treating Stroke Patients

New research has revealed the 3-D structure of a protein fragment that could serve as a drug target in treating stroke patients. The study was published in Nature Methods,

A novel hybrid approach performed by researchers from Clemson University's department of physics and astronomy and Stony Brook University has revealed a 3-D structure of a protein fragment that could serve as a drug target in treating stroke patients.

Potential Microscopes Help To Visualize Small Things

Two high-resolution microscopes will allow researchers to study and test materials at the atomic level with unprecedented precision. Standing beneath a pearly white, towering microscope called the JEOL NEOARM, Penn's Douglas Yates explains that scanning transmission electron microscopes are so powerful they can image down to the atomic level.

These microscopes fire energetic electrons through the object being examined. This allows researchers to create an atomic-scale image through the interaction between the electrons and the atoms in the sample.

Skills-based Stroke Prevention Intervention Benefit the Hispanic Individuals, Findings

A culturally tailored program used when discharging stroke patients from the hospital helped to lower blood pressure among Hispanic individuals one year later, finds a new study led by researchers at NYU College of Global Public Health. The almost 10 mm Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure measured in this study has been linked to a nearly 40% reduction in the risk of having another stroke in previous studies.

Exercise Is A Part Of Palliative Care For Cancer Patients

While most oncologists would agree that exercise is important for people with cancer, generic guidelines for this population do not address the high need for personalized exercises. They recently shared with The Lancet Oncology journal a clinical tool that he and his colleagues at Princess Margaret Hospital developed to respond to the high demand for exercise services by oncology patients and clinicians.

Treating Trauma Patients In Emergency Room

Emergency management of trauma practically begins prior to the arrival of the patient to the emergency room (ER). The emergency medical service (EMS) providers inform the emergency department about the mechanism of trauma and update them regarding the vital sign values, suspected injuries and first aid treatments provided to the patient. The emergency team is activated and the concerned specialties involved in the management of polytrauma patients are informed beforehand.
