Blood Vessels are tubes through which the blood circulates in the body. Blood vessels include a network of arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and veins.
For years cardiologists have threaded hair-like surgical instruments through arteries in the wrist, as an access point to perform procedures on the heart.
Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have discovered how an aggressive form of prostate cancer called double-negative prostate cancer (DNPC) metastasizes by evading the the immune system.
Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells.
Cancer metastasis is a difficult stage to battle, especially if cancer cells are proliferating at a rapid pace. A new study reveals that metastatic cells change their shape to spread to other parts of the body. Researchers formulated a mathematical model to study metastatic cell behavior and similar cellular systems.
A team of researchers at the David Geffen School of Medicine in the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) wanted to determine the association between time to treatment with Endovascular Reperfusion Therapy and outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke.
A study performed at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine and published in the journal Nature Communications demonstrates that inhibition of the p38 protein boosts the formation of blood vessels in human and mice colon cancers.
When a group of our neurons get activated by thinking hard about a math problem or the vibrant colors of an exotic flower, within a single second blood flow to those brain cells increases a bit.
Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is DNA found in trace amounts in blood, which has escaped degradation by enzymes.
Focusing on strengthening our muscles rather than losing fat may be a better way to protect ourselves from weight-related hazards like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, investigators say.
Collagen powder is just as effective in managing skin biopsy wounds as primary closure with non-absorbable sutures, according to a first-of-its-kind study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology by a team of physician researchers at the George Washington University.
Microvascular disease is independently associated with a higher risk of leg amputation compared to people without the disease, according to new research in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation.
Apple-shaped women are three times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke while being pear-shaped in postmenopausal years cuts the risk by almost half, a new study found.
Postmenopausal women who are "apple" shaped rather than "pear" shaped are at greater risk of heart and blood vessel problems, even if they have a normal, healthy body mass index according to new research.
Research is currently pursuing several highly promising approaches in the fight against cancers that give rise to metastases in the brain.
Ann Manganello survives entirely off her Social Security stipend: $1,391 a month.
Following a stroke, antibodies that inhibit the signaling molecule Nogo-A can help repair blood vessels in the affected brain regions.
The first cause of the loss of functionality in transplanted pancreatic islets is the low capacity to create new vessels to allow the arrival of nutrients in the cells.
An investigational drug for the treatment of sickle cell disease is showing early promise in clinical trials for impacting biomarkers of the disease in patients, reported UConn School of Medicine researchers at the European Hematology Association Congress in Amsterdam this week.
Scientists used a gene editing method called CRISPR/Cas9 to generate mice that faithfully mimic a fatal respiratory disorder in newborn infants that turns their lips and skin blue. The new laboratory model allowed researchers to pinpoint the ailment's cause and develop a potential and desperately needed nanoparticle-based treatment.
High blood pressure may affect conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease by interfering with the brain’s waste management system, according to new research in rats published in JNeurosci. Maintaining blood vessel health could therefore help stave off cognitive decline.
