Noninvasive device treatments for psychiatric disorders long have been investigated; however, they rarely have achieved substantial efficacy or implementation. To better tap into the potential of one such U.S. FDA-approved treatment, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), Stanford University researchers developed a high-dose, precision-targeted protocol known as Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy (SAINT).
Indian scientists have discovered a previously unknown mechanism underlying life-threatening sepsis and proposed a new treatment strategy centered upon cell-free chromatin (cfCh), they reported in the March 4, 2020, edition of PLOS ONE. Notably, they showed that sepsis could be caused by cfCh released from dying host cells following microbial infection.
Results of a study presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session on March 29 demonstrated “excellent” outcomes following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using the Medtronic plc Evolut in low surgical risk patients with bicuspid aortic valve stenosis.
Systematic detection of cancer at earlier stages at a population level could remodel how the medical profession approaches cancer treatment, establishing the potential to reduce cancer mortality by almost one-quarter. That’s according to an analysis based on the latest data from Grail Inc.'s Circulating Cell-free Genome Atlas (CCGA) study.
Results of the pivotal Spyral-HTN OFF MED study presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session on March 29 demonstrated significant reduction in blood pressure three months after renal denervation (RDN) in patients with unmedicated hypertension.
It took less than a week from the publication of Science 37’s whitepaper on March 12 encouraging virtual clinical trials to the FDA’s decision to endorse the idea, tailored to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
LONDON – As the epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic shifted to Europe and the number of deaths in Italy exceeded the toll in China, the EU stepped up efforts to mount a coordinated response, with a big boost for collaborative R&D funding and a call for clinical research to be pooled in multicenter, multi-arm randomized controlled trials.
Google sister company Verily Life Sciences LLC has been under an unprecedented amount of scrutiny since it was promoted over the weekend by President Donald Trump as responsible for a nationwide information and testing program for the emerging novel coronavirus.
Jerusalem-based Brainsway Ltd. had good news to report with the presentation of positive data from a multicenter study evaluating its deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS) system as an aid in smoking cessation.
