Washington University in St. Louis

The U.S. Supreme Court  struck down a ban on clothing with political messages being worn inside polling places.

The researchers, from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that an already approved drug effectively tamps down such inflammation in mice, protecting the heart from the progressive damage that often occurs after a heart attack.
