Stem cells are cells responsible for generating specialized cells in the body, with stem cell treatments currently being developed to regenerate and repair diseased or damaged tissues in patients. However, … Continue Reading Microbot can precisely culture and deliver stem cells.
Generally, researchers divide the human immune system into two parts. One part, called the innate immune system, allows for immediate and direct recognition of invading bacteria. It prompts immune cells … Continue Reading Study identifies previously unknown mechanism of the immune system.
A study to examine recessively inherited genome-wide DNA sequences has for the first time discovered a potential link with Britain’s biggest killer, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). The research led by … Continue Reading Researchers identify the link between inherited DNA sequences and heart disease.
A new non-invasive scan can be used to determine the extent of plaque buildup in the heart accurately predicts the likelihood of heart attack or death over a 15-year period. … Continue Reading New non-invasive test predicts long-term death risk in humans even without heart disease symptoms.
A new study from researchers at the NIH Clinical Center has found that non-calcified arterial plaque is associated with diabetes, high systolic blood pressure and elevated ‘bad’ cholesterol levels in … Continue Reading NIH researchers use CT angiography to link arterial plaque with diabetes.
Researchers have performed the first human-based study to identify calcium channels in cerebral arteries and determine the distinct role each channel plays in helping control blood flow to the brain. … Continue Reading Researchers show how calcium ion-channels control arterial tone and blood flow in the brain.
Adding two non-invasive imaging tests to traditional cardiovascular disease risk factor assessment more precisely predicts a healthy patient’s future risk of heart attack, stroke, or premature death, according to a … Continue Reading New non-invasive bioimaging can detect coronary artery disease long before it strikes.
Researchers from the UC San Diego and the University of Iowa have identified a key piece in the complex molecular puzzle underlying heart failure, a serious and sometimes life-threatening disorder affecting more … Continue Reading Researchers identify protein responsible for epigenetic change in heart failure.
Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School have found a close association between high-risk coronary artery plaque and a common liver disease using coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). … Continue Reading Study finds link between coronary artery plaque and liver disease.
