Ultrasound Techniques Give Warning Signs of Preterm Births

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Ultrasound can be used to examine cervix tissue and improve diagnostics, which is essential for predicting preterm births, and ultrasound data is used to compare two techniques for evaluating changes in cervical tissue throughout pregnancy. Researchers are looking at ultrasonic attenuation coefficients that can help scientists characterize cervical changes throughout pregnancy and in preparation for birth before other symptoms, such as contractions or dilation, occur. They will discuss their work at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Newswise: Calcium Signaling Identified as Exploitable Target in Addressing Drug Resistance to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment

Calcium Signaling Identified as Exploitable Target in Addressing Drug Resistance to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey

Gene expression profiling and other analyses conducted by Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey researchers and colleagues examining drug resistance to a common antibody therapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma have identified calcium signaling as a novel and exploitable target in overcoming this treatment obstacle. Results are being presented at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting.

Improving Drug Delivery for Brain Tumor Treatment

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Despite improvements in drug delivery mechanisms, treating brain tumors has remained challenging. Researchers have studied the processes affecting therapeutic drug penetration into brain tumors and will present two strategies for improving the delivery of therapeutic agents during at the 178th ASA Meeting. One approach is to use microbubbles to help overcome vascular barriers within the tumors and improve nanoparticle penetration across the vessel wall. The second method uses ultrasound in combination with temperature-sensitive nanoparticles.

Heating Techniques Could Improve Treatment of Macular Degeneration

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Age-related macular degeneration is the primary cause of central vision loss and results in the center of the visual field being blurred or fully blacked out. Though treatable, some methods can be ineffective or cause unwanted side effects. Jinglin Huang, a graduate student in medical engineering at Caltech, suggests inefficient fluid mixing of the injected medicine and the gel within the eye may be to blame.

Shaking Head to Get Rid of Water in Ears Could Cause Brain Damage

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Trapped water in the ear canal can cause infection and even damage, but it turns out that one of the most common methods people use to get rid of water in their ears can also cause complications. Researchers show shaking the head to free trapped water can cause brain damage in small children.

Heart pump devices associated with serious complications in some patients shortly after heart stent procedure

Washington University in St. Louis

In critically ill patients who require a heart pump to support blood circulation as part of stent procedures, specific heart pumps have been associated with serious complications, according to a new study led by cardiologists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

People in Counties with Worse Economies Post-Recession Are More Likely to Die from Heart Disease

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Communities in the United States that experienced the most economic distress in the wake of the Great Recession saw a significant increase in death rates from heart disease and strokes among middle-aged people, according to a new multi-institution study led by researchers at Penn Medicine.
