http://bit.ly/2RUoLk5 A recent study, affiliated with South Korea’s Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has introduced a novel targeted drug delivery system in the fight against cancer.
http://bit.ly/2FAslu0 Elderly men who experience extended episodes of interrupted breathing while asleep have a high risk of heart problems. Research shows for the first time that poor blood oxygenation is a good indicator of the chance of heart-related death, which cannot be attributed to sleep apnoea alone.
http://bit.ly/2TU03O4 Pilot study finds that an innovative care-delivery program helped 81 percent of participants achieve blood pressure control in seven weeks.
http://bit.ly/2Hl3Qmc Researchers have developed a new risk score which takes into account detailed genetic information known to increase the chances of type 1 diabetes. This could be used to help identity babies at highest risk of developing the condition in the future. The score may also be used at the time of diabetes diagnosis to help decide if someone has type 1 or type 2 diabetes, which need very different treatments.
http://bit.ly/2RBHPo4 Researchers have tweaked the recipe for coaxing human stem cells into insulin-secreting beta cells and shown that the resulting cells are more responsive to fluctuating glucose levels in the blood.
http://bit.ly/2QSfxjV Chaos in bodily regulation can optimize our immune system, according to researchers. The discovery may prove to be of great significance for avoiding serious diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
http://bit.ly/2TUc7im Scientists have managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish for the first time. The breakthrough engineering technology dramatically advances research of vascular diseases like diabetes, identifying a key pathway to potentially prevent changes to blood vessels — a major cause of death and morbidity among those with diabetes.
