Bottleneck in Blood Supply Makes Brain Vulnerable to Strokes

...hnique creates a clot while generating very little collateral damage,” said Beth Friedman, an associate project scientist working with Lyden in neurosciences and a contributing author on the paper. “Then we can study blood flow changes to understand what is happening in the brain in real time.” Before and aft...

Consequences Of Smoking On Fractures & Ligament Injuries

...earchers examined the effects of smoking on medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury. They performed MCL surgery on 40 mice, half of which were exposed to cigarette smoke 6 days a week for two months. Researchers quantified cellular density at the site of injury and used Type I collagen gene expression as a mark...

Radiation Therapy Made More Compatible

... while subjecting adjacent normal tissue to little collateral damage. But the technique has limitations. For one thing, only certain synchrotrons can generate its very thin beams at adequate intensity, and such facilities are available at only a few research centers around the world. ‘The new development seek...

Recouping blood flow after a stroke

...showed that a number of new blood vessels - called collateral vessels had grown. These were longer and wider than blood vessels located away from the damaged area. They took over the blood supply function of the blocked vessel that had caused the stroke. This research may provide new ways of limiting the damag...
