Name practically any disease or condition that afflicts the human body and there’s probably a good test for detecting it — preferably early, when there’s a chance that promising treatments can slow it down or even cure it.

Conclusions: The incidence and in-hospital mortality rate of CAVB in patients with STEMI who underwent primary PCI was reduced when compared to data from the thrombolytic era. This may be due to faster flow recovery in the infarct-related artery achieved with PCI.Cardiology 2018;140:146 –151

Conclusion: Decreased expression of miR-141 is associated with up-regulation of RhoA and ROCK2 in the RhoA/ROCK signaling pathway in rats with diabetic erectile dysfunction. miR-141 inhibits the growth of penile cavernous smooth muscle cells associated with down-regulation of the RhoA/ROCK signaling pathwayin vitro.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;48:348 –360
