Red Blood Cell Transfusion and Mortality After Cardiac Surgery

The researchers find that the  Anemia in cardiac surgery patients has been associated with poor outcomes. Transfusion of red blood cells during surgery is common practice for perioperative anemia; but may come with risks. Little is know about the association between intra-operative transfusion and mortality in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Single centre historical cohort study…

Blood Supply Therapy Boosted by Fresh Insights

Scientists have developed a system that allows them to study cells that line the walls of blood vessels, called endothelial cells. Because he endothelium is the thin layer of cells that line the interior surface of blood vessels; therefore forming an interface between circulating blood in the lumen and the rest of the vessel wall.…

EHR Data to Find Child Leukemia Patients for Clinical Studies

The researches find that the electronic health records (EHR) of children seen by Leukemia specialists at three large medical centers have developed an algorithm to accurately identify appropriate pediatric oncology patients for future clinical studies. By expediting and refining the selection of patients for research; therefore the researchers aim to ultimately improve outcomes for a…

Subcutaneously Administered Antibodies into Lymph Nodes

Researchers from the University of Turku have discovered a new route that transports subcutaneously administered antibodies into lymph nodes in just a few seconds. The discovery enables targeted therapies for the immune system. Many of the immune defence reactions are launch in the lymph nodes. For instance, small, foreign molecules that pass through the skin…

Promising Approach Repairs System of Blood Vessels

The researches find that the Following a stroke; antibodies that inhibit the signaling molecule Nogo-A can help repair blood vessels in the affected brain regions. This also promotes the regaining of motor functions, researchers at the University of Zurich have shown in a mouse model. The study opens up new avenues for treatment. Repair blood…

Blood Test Potentially Diagnose Alzheimer’s Even Before Symptoms

The researches find that the a patient’s response to treatment by doing a simple blood test. This is make possible using the APEX (Amplify Plasmonic EXosome); system invent by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS). Designed to pick up an early-stage molecular marker of AD; the aggregated amyloid beta (Aβ), the APEX system…

Compounds That Starve Melanoma Cancer Cells Of Energy Is Identified

Researchers at Oregon State University and Oregon Health & Science University have found a possible counter strike; to the drug resistance of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. The findings, publish in the journal Molecular Carcinogenesisl are important because in the US alone, almost 100,000 new melanoma cases; were diagnose this year and…

Healthy Blood Vessels Delay Cognitive Decline

The study find that the  High blood pressure may affect conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease by interfering with the brain’s waste management system, according to new research in rats published in JNeurosci. Therefore Maintaining Blood vessel health could therefore help stave off cognitive decline. but Hypertension causes stiffening and elasticity loss in blood vessels, which…

Prenatal Diagnosis for Fetal Sickle Cell Disease

The study find that the Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a form of anemia that is inherited when both parents are carriers of a mutation in the hemoglobin gene. Therefore Currently; it only be diagnose in pregnancy ;by carrying out an invasive test that has a small risk of miscarriage and is therefore sometimes decline…

Reliable Method to Continuously Monitor Sickle Cell Disease

The study find that the Sickle cell disease is a hereditary disorder that affects red blood cells, therefore distorting their natural disc shape into a crescent moon or “sickle” shape. Normal red blood cells move freely through small vessels throughout the body to deliver oxygen. With sickle cell disease, the misshapen red blood cells become…

A Blood into Universal type O, Potentially Doubling Blood Transfusion

The researches find that the  Blood types (A, B, AB, O) that each person is born with means a person cannot always receive a transfusion. Transfusing a non-matched blood type could trigger a fatal reaction and kill them. However, type O blood is compatible with anyone who has Rhesus (Rh) positive blood. It is therefore…

Sickle Cell Disease Inherited Red Blood Cell Disorders,

The researches find that the sickle cell disease, a group of inherited red blood cell disorders; has never been so great, but it will only be realize if there is constant investment in health policies such as programs for screening newborns; especially in sub-Saharan Africa; where most cases occur. The sickle cell disease This point…
