Research to assess safety and effectiveness of stem cells as potential treatment for heart failure

Research to assess safety and effectiveness of stem cells as potential treatment for heart failure

Stem cells are being tested at the Medical University of South Carolina as a possible treatment for heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction, or HFpEF. The condition causes severe disability and kills half its victims within five years. [More]
Research reveals mechanism behind progression of neurodegenerative diseases in the brain

Research reveals mechanism behind progression of neurodegenerative diseases in the brain

Synapses, the place where brain cells contact one another, play a pivotal role in the transmission of toxic proteins. This allows neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's to spread through the brain. [More]
