A new discovery by researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle makes an important step in identifying which specific T cells within the diverse army of a person's immune system are best suited to fight cancer.



Deep brain stimulation may help improve mental, physical health in patients with anorexia nervosa

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 04:07:01 -0500

Deep brain stimulation might alter the brain circuits that drive anorexia nervosa symptoms and help improve patients’ mental and physical health, according to a small study published in The Lancet Psychiatry.



New study confirms benefits of Medtronic’s Solitaire stent retriever for stroke patients in real-world setting

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 03:57:05 -0500

Data presented today on Medtronic’s Solitaire stent retriever at the International Stroke Conference in Houston demonstrate that the results from the four pivotal randomized controlled trials – SOLITAIRE FR With the Intention For Thrombectomy as PRIMary Endovascular Treatment for Acute Ischemic Stroke, Endovascular Treatment for Small Core and Proximal Occlusion Ischemic Stroke, EXtending the Time for Thrombolysis in Emergency Neurological Deficits - Intra-Arterial and Endovascular Revascularization With Solitaire Device Versus Best Medical Therapy in Anterior Circulation Stroke Within 8 Hours – can be replicated in U.S. centers, in a pragmatic, real-world setting reconfirming the benefits of mechanical thrombectomy in patients suffering acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
