A new blood-based test could help change the way TBI’s such as concussions are detected in patients. FDA recently granted a De Novo request to Banyan Biomarkers to market the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator (BTI). “The goal standard right now is the CT scan and it’s better than anything else out there,” Henry Nordhoff, chairman and CEO of Banyan Biomarkers, told MD+DI. “But the problem with CT is the cost; the time it takes; and the amount of ionizing radiation that’s delivered to the brain. It’s particularly dangerous when it’s a developing brain. You’re getting about 10...

ConclusionsThe presence of IHBC in BA livers at the diagnosis was associated with resolution of cholestasis, although was not predictive of short‐term survival with native liver. Scanning electron microscopy represents a powerful new tool to study routine liver biopsies in biliary disorders. Cilia dysfunction in BA pathogenesis and/or disease progression warrants further investigation.

Abstract AimTo explore whether high‐level endurance training in early age has an influence on the arterial wall properties in young women. MethodsForty‐seven athletes (ATH) and 52 controls (CTR), all 17‐25 years of age, were further divided into runners (RUN), whole‐body endurance athletes (WBA), sedentary controls (SC) and normally active controls (AC). Two‐dimensional ultrasound scanning of the carotid arteries was conducted to determine local common carotid artery (CCA) geometry and wall distensibility. Pulse waves were recorded with a tonometer to determine regional pulse wave velocity (PWV) and pulse pressur...

BackgroundLung disease is the most frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), and there is a shortage of sensitive biomarkers able to regionally monitor disease progression and to assess early responses to therapy. PurposeTo determine the feasibility of noncontrast‐enhanced multivolume MRI, which assesses intensity changes between expiratory and inspiratory breath‐hold images, to detect and quantify regional ventilation abnormalities in CF lung disease, with a focus on the structure–function relationship. Study TypeRetrospective. PopulationTwenty‐nine subjects, including he...

I am a bookworm. As a child I always wanted to go to the library and didn't mind that if I read my newly selected books on the way home I might start to be a bit woozy from the wiggly New England roads. (Highways are much better for car reading.)In times of stress (read'medical disasters'among other things) I often turn to books as my personal form of avoidance. This was fine until my medical maladies kept interfering with my reading enjoyment. That would really suck.During college, after thyroid cancer, with my small paperback book collection, I would avoid studying or read in bed something less enlightening than any requ...

Authors: Yu HX, Han CS, Xue JR, Han ZF, Xin H Abstract INTRODUCTION: Esophageal hiatal hernia involves abnormal abdominal entry into thoracic cavity. It is classified based on orientation between esophageal junction and diaphragm. Sliding hiatal hernia (Type-I) comprises the most frequent category, emanating from right crus of diaphragm. Type-II esophageal hernia engages both left and right muscular crura. Type-III and IV additionally include the left crus. Age and increased body mass index are key risk factors, and congenital skeletal aberrations trigger pathogenesis through intestinal malrotations. Familiar manif...

I have conceived through IVF and ET was on Jan 6 th and my LMP was on Dec 20th.I got my ultrasound done on 16th Feb and in scan it showed the pregnancy is 5 weeks 6 days.If I calculate the growth of the baby from the date of the transfer, this seems fine, but if I calculate from the date of the LMP , it seems to be lagging behind.I am completely confused - can you please help ?This is a common problem, because IVF patients use their common sense and assume that doctors would calculate pregnancy dates based on the age of the embryo.
