New open?access article published in the 1 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology [JACC] has revealed the feasibility and potential of the PlaqueTec Liquid Biopsy System™ (LBS) to detect biomarkers for coronary artery disease (CAD). The system reported results from the first?in?human studies of the LBS in detecting biomolecular gradients in diseased coronary arteries of symptomatic patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a new mathematical model for computing radiation therapy treatments that could substantially reduce patient side effects while delivering the same results as conventional radiation therapy.
New research appear in the journal Current Atherosclerosis Reports showed that Resolvin E1 molecule if applied on gum tissues prevents and treats gum disease as well as decreases the likelihood for advanced arterial atherosclerotic plaques to rupture and form a dangerous thrombus or blood clot.
According to a new research from Germany, deep sedation is a comparable, safe alternative to general anesthesia for patients undergoing percutaneous mitral valve repair (PMVR) for mitral regurgitation.
Artificial polyelectrolytes can mimic the interactions of biological macromolecules such as nucleic acids, proteins, and polysaccharide-protein conjugates. Such synthetic polyionic complexes are expected to serve as novel platforms to stabilize and deliver drugs, proteins, or nucleic acids. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Chinese investigators have introduced a versatile, commercially applicable preparation strategy of such nanomaterials with tunable morphology. The preparation of libraries of these low-dimensional bio-relevant nanostructures can be envisaged.
The study found that other signs of respiratory distress, such as low arterial blood oxygen or rapid shallow breathing, were no more common in severely premature children (less than 32 weeks of gestational age) than in kids born preterm or full-term. The findings have implications for administering supportive care sooner or more intensively for severely premature children than for other infants.
The response evaluation criteria in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) were designed for the assessment of chemotherapy and targeted molecular agents.The researchers investigated the accuracy of 3-mo 18F-FDG PET/CT for the identification of HL patients responding to immune-checkpoint blockade by anti–programmed death 1 antibodies (anti-PD1).
A combination of two antibiotics is often prescribed to treat community-acquired pneumonia in children but a JAMA Pediatrics study is now showing that amoxicillin alone, rather than combined with azithromycin, is just as effective and a better choice as it relates to efforts to curb antibiotic resistance.
New research published in the journal Immunity, has revealed that the monocyte-derived dendritic cells are not identical descendants, but rather a very diverse mixture. The finding is important for the further development of tailor-made immunotherapies for combating tumour cells.
A new study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Public Health has reported that headaches, back pain and other vexing conditions have made people turn to alternative forms of treatment. The findings revealed that women and those with higher education use complementary and alternative medicine more often than others.
The cancer death rate dropped 1.7% from 2014 to 2015, continuing a drop that began in 1991 and has reached 26%, resulting in nearly 2.4 million fewer cancer deaths during that time. The data is reported in Cancer Statistics 2018, the American Cancer Society's comprehensive annual report on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. It is published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians and is accompanied by its consumer version: Cancer Facts and Figures 2018.
