Sudden Death Risk In Heart Failure Patients Who Would Benefit From ICDs, Predicted By Novel Blood Test
A novel blood test that predicts sudden death risk in heart failure patients is set to help physicians decide which patients would benefit from implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). The findings were presented at the ESC Congress 2012 by Professor Samuel Dudley from Chicago, IL, US. Approximately 5 million patients in the US have heart failure, a condition where the heart is unable to pu..
By adding tiny nanowire electronic sensors into engineered 3D tissue structures, scientists have developed a way to monitor cell behavior that could advance the treatment of cardiac and neurological diseases and speed up the development of tissue-engineered hearts. Researchers already know how to control the three-dimensional shape of engineered tissue: they grow the cells on miniscule, sponge-li..
Young people who smoke cannabis for years run the risk of a significant and irreversible reduction in their IQ, research suggests. The findings come from a study of around 1,000 people in New Zealand. An international team found those who started using cannabis below the age of 18 - while their brains were still developing - suffered a drop in IQ. A UK expert said the research might explain why pe..
People who eat a bar of dark chocolate in the morning and drink a glass of red wine at night are lowering their blood pressure and so prolonging their lives. Even better would be to also cut down on salt and step up exercise, Adelaide University’s Karin Ried said. “Eating chocolate reduces blood pressure by about 2-3 millimetres of mercury (while) exercise and other dietary measures ca..
A review of six screening tools for identifying people at high risk for heart disease who are misclassified as intermediate risk using the current standard, suggests the best one is a CT scan that looks for calcium build-up in the arteries around the heart.The review is published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA. The lead author is Joseph Yeboah, assistant profess..
Using small nets to extract blood clots from patients' brains may be the future of stroke care, according to two studies. Clots block blood vessels, starving parts of the brain of oxygen, which leads to symptoms such as paralysis and loss of speech. Two studies, presented in the Lancet medical journal, suggest extracting clots with nets could improve recovery. The Stroke Association said it was ve..
The US government cannot force tobacco firms to put large graphic health warnings on cigarette packages, an appeals court in Washington has ruled. It said the government's plan undermined free speech in America. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had wanted to put nine pictures of dead and diseased smokers to convey the dangers of cigarettes. But tobacco firms had argued that the images went b..
An individual's face not only gives nonverbal signals about someone's true well-being from unconscious facial expressions, but the state of their skin reveals a great deal about what's going on inside, both physically and emotionally. In fact, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have used facial analysis as a diagnostic tool for centuries, marrying specific facial areas and features with..
Inhaling tiny fibres made by the nanotechnology industry could cause similar health problems to asbestos, say researchers. Some are similar in shape to asbestos fibres, which have caused lung cancers such as mesothelioma. Research on mice, published in Toxicology Sciences, suggests the longer nanofibres are more dangerous. Human and mouse lungs are different, but the researchers hope the study wil..
Here are some traps you should avoid if you don't want to stack up on those kilos.. 1. Loving fruit juice If you start downing fruit juice, you'll soon stack up on the kilos. Often mistaken for a healthy option, it is actually far from the truth. Juice contains far too many carbs to be on even a diet. Moreover a large portion of these carbs are fructose. This gets converted to flab much quicker s..
