Topic of the Month April: The informed patient

Books, the internet, television, or rather listen to the neighbor’s advice? Patients with an interest in medicine and medical technology can find reports, information and opinions quickly and everywhere, even without a physician. We look at patients who look for information by themselves and how they (and physicians) fare with this. Read our Topic of the Month

A recipe for long-lasting livers

23/04/2015 - People waiting for organ transplants may soon have higher hopes of getting the help that they need in time. Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology have developed a new technique that extends the time that donor organs last and can also resuscitate organs obtained after cardiac arrest. read more

Breast tumor: Metastasis risk linked by molecule's movement

22/04/2015 - Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center have discovered a molecular mechanism that connects breast tissue stiffness to tumor metastasis and poor prognosis. The study may inspire new approaches to predicting patient outcomes and halting tumor metastasis. read more

Chemobrain: Cancer diagnosis affects cognitive function

21/04/2015 - Breast cancer patients often display mild cognitive defects even before the initiation of chemotherapy. A new study by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich researchers now attributes the syndrome to post-traumatic stress induced by diagnosis of the disease. read more

Autoimmune process causes rejection of secondary corneal transplants

17/04/2015 - UT Southwestern Medical Center ophthalmologists have identified an important cause of why secondary corneal transplants are rejected at triple the rate of first-time corneal transplants. read more

Does eating out cause high blood pressure?

16/04/2015 - A recent study on university-going young adults, by researchers from the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore (Duke-NUS), is the first ever to show an association between meals eaten away from home and high blood pressure. read more

Stronger muscles make bone development healthier

16/04/2015 - Scientists at the University of Southampton have shown that higher muscle mass is strongly linked with healthier bone development in children. Researchers also found no relationship between fat mass and bone development, indicating it is not an important factor in childhood skeletal strength. read more

Heart cells regenerated in mice

15/04/2015 - As opposed to blood, hair or skin cells that can renew themselves throughout life, our heart cells cease to divide shortly after birth, and there is very little renewal in adulthood. New research provides insight into the question of why the mammalian heart fails to regenerate, on one hand, and demonstrated, in adult mice, the possibility of turning back this fate. read more

Spinal surgery: Right on target

14/04/2015 - Because the spine is made up of repeating elements that look alike, surgeons can mistakenly operate on the wrong vertebra. To avoid this, Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a software program that works seamlessly with currently available procedures to assist a surgeon's determination of which vertebra is which. read more

MIPT researchers grow cardiac tissue on 'spider silk' substrate

13/04/2015 - Genetically engineered fibers of the protein spidroin, which is the construction material for spider webs, has proven to be a perfect substrate for cultivating heart tissue cells, MIPT researchers found. They discuss their findings in an article that has recently come out in the journal PLOS ONE. read more

Cardiac arrest: Selenide protects heart muscle

10/04/2015 - Damage to heart muscle from insufficient blood supply during cardiac arrest and reperfusion injury after blood flow is restored can be reduced by nearly 90 percent if selenide, a form of the essential nutrient selenium, is administered intravenously in the wake of the attack, according to a new preclinical study by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. read more
