Photo: two physicians working at a test set-up [09/02/2016] Many people suffer from atherosclerosis, especially in developed countries. The buildup of fatty deposits inside the arterial blood vessels leads to strokes and heart attacks. Now, a new method is designed to get to the root of the problem, and with the help of nanoparticles inject new turbo replacement cells into the blood vessels which are intended to exert their curative effect.Atherosclerosis: Getting to the root of the problem with a turbo gene - Read more

Graphic: blue points with red spots on black background [09/02/2016] Stress in the body’s cells is both the cause and consequence of inflammatory diseases or cancer. The cells react to stress to protect themselves. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now developed a new technique that allows studying a fundamental response to stress in much more detail than previously possible: the ADP-ribosylation of chromatin.

[01/02/2016] Self-healing powers like a superhero on the big screen? That’s the aim of regenerative medicine; at least in a very broad sense. This promising field of biomedicine is currently highly dynamic with innovative technologies and development. New methods are designed to help propel medicine into a whole new sphere.Great leaps forward thanks to new methods - Read more

High-rise buildings: lower survival rates from cardiac arrest

Photo: Staircase [29/01/2016] The number of people living in high-rise buildings in rising, but along with the convenience and panoramic views of a downtown condo comes a risk: a new study found that survival rates from cardiac arrest decrease the higher up the building a person lives.High-rise buildings: lower survival rates from cardiac arrest - Read more

Atrial fibrillation ablation: Gap-AF trial published

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Photo: electrocardiogram [18/01/2016] Using catheter ablation to create complete linear lesions around pulmonary veins, proved more effective than the creation of incomplete lesions in preventing recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF). This is the result of Gap-AF – AFNET 1, the first controlled clinical trial that compared directly the two ablation strategies in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.Atrial fibrillation ablation: Gap-AF trial published - Read more
