Blood Vessels are tubes through which the blood circulates in the body. Blood vessels include a network of arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and veins.
PKvitality, an advanced bio-wearable company has today unveiled K’Track, a line of next generation trackers with the ability to analyze key physiological markers by simply “tasting” the skin rather than analyzing blood samples.
Many groups are working to discover new, safer ways to deliver drugs that fight cancer to the tumor without damaging healthy cells.
A new study shows that the drug fenofibrate might reduce the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes who have high levels of triglycerides and low levels of "good" cholesterol, despite being treated with statins.
As cancerous tumors fester in the body, they need an ever-increasing blood supply to deliver the oxygen and nutrients that fuel their growth. Now, a team led by University of Florida Health researchers has established how some tumors bolster their own blood supply.
As the valves in a heart stretch with each beat, their cells take in life-giving oxygen. But if the supply is cut off, aortic and mitral valves use different strategies to compensate, according to Rice University scientists.
UCLA researchers have shown that the brain can be repaired — and brain function can be recovered — after a stroke in animals.
Narrowed and blocked arteries can now be diagnosed faster and more accurately with the help of special computer-aided image analysis techniques.
When a tooth is damaged, either by severe decay or trauma, the living tissues that comprise the sensitive inner dental pulp become exposed and vulnerable to harmful bacteria.
Scientists in Japan and the US have found that vitamin B3 nicotinamide may help treat pregnant women who suffer from preeclampsia by preventing strokes and in some cases, even stimulating the growth of their fetus.
A common class of drugs for vision loss may actually add to the problem in some patients, according to new research co-led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI).
University of Alabama researchers soon will launch a study that looks at watermelon juice as a way to reduce heart disease.
Using state-of-the-art brain imaging technology, scientists at the National Institutes of Health filmed what happens in the brains of mice that developed cerebral malaria (CM).
Researchers with funding from Fight for Sight have demonstrated that a new drug treatment for cystic fibrosis and Duchenne muscular dystrophy can override a genetic fault that causes choroideremia – a severe blinding disorder.
A team headed by Professor Albert Rizvanov, director of the Gene and Cell Technologies Open Lab, created a gene therapy drug that encodes growth factors for the stimulation of blood vessel and bone formation.
There have been a number of ways to measure the biological health and age of your heart, which has been done conventionally in the past. Blood pressure is one indicator. Other risk indicators include family history of heart disease, level of cholesterol and exercise testing, where you can get heart rate...
Almost 10,000 UK stroke patients a year could benefit from a new procedure, according to research presented today at the UK Stroke Forum Conference in Liverpool.
Drexel University researchers are one step closer to offering a new treatment for the millions of patients who suffer from slow-healing, chronic wounds.
New research from New Zealand's University of Otago is providing fresh insights into how a patient's adult stem cells could best be used to regenerate their diseased hearts.
Massachusetts General Hospital investigators have developed new methods for mapping and measuring solid stress - the force exerted by solid and elastic components - within tumors, an accomplishment that may lead to improved understanding of those forces and their consequences and to novel treatment strategies.
Conventional, high-dose chemotherapy treatments can cause the fibroblast cells surrounding tumors to secrete proteins that promote the tumors' recurrence in more aggressive forms, researchers at Taipei Medical University and the National Institute of Cancer Research in Taiwan and University of California, San Francisco, have discovered.
