Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death worldwide and represent a substantial economic burden on public health care systems.  Now, a study from researchers at Uppsala University shows that … Continue Reading Large-scale study shows that memory, epigenetics of a heart attack are stored in person’s genes.

Study shows that MRIs in first trimester of pregnancy not associated with increased risk to fetus.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used to evaluate obstetrical, placental, and fetal abnormalities in pregnant patients for more than 30 years. MRI is recognized as a beneficial diagnostic tool … Continue Reading Study shows that MRIs in first trimester of pregnancy not associated with increased risk to fetus.

Researchers elevate brain protein to allay symptoms of Alzheimer’s in animal model.

Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the degeneration of neurons in the hippocampus and cortex, and the appearance of neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.  Although the precise cause of Alzheimer’s disease remains … Continue Reading Researchers elevate brain protein to allay symptoms of Alzheimer’s in animal model.
