Growing Regulatory Complexity: An Innovation Challenge?
 The considerable rise in regulatory complexity within the global medical device manufacturing community is a challenge that keeps many leaders rethinking the right approach. While the European Union’s Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) is at the forefront today, the issue certainly isn’t limited to the EU. Life sciences organizations have a choice with regulatory initiatives: spend the minimal amount to be compliant and live with a patchwork of “silo solutions” or look at challenges such as EU MDR as an opportunity to innovate and moderniz...

How Artificial Intelligence Can Help Pick the Best Depression Treatments for You
Seeking out help for depression is hard enough. It doesn’t make things any easier that it can take weeks, months or longer of trying different treatments to find something that works. Doctors typically start patients on antidepressants, but they take at least four weeks to start working, and research has shown that only about 30% respond well to the first drug they’re prescribed. “Right now, treatment selection is purely based on trial and error,” says Dr. Madhukar Trivedi, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. But promising new research published in Febru...

Increasing Attachment in Grandfamilies and Kinship Care
While working as a family therapist with kinship families, also known as grandparents raising their grandchildren, I came across families who were struggling with the ability to rebuild broken trust. Raising your grandchild (or another relative) brings with it attachment challenges you may not have faced when you raised your biological children. By “attachment” I am referring to the safety and comfort that develops, over time between a child and caregiver. For example, the bond between you and your children probably grew organically, beginning in utero, and continued to develop from the first day of their life...

Fist Bumps vs. Handshakes: How COVID-19 Does —and Doesn’t—Spread
With more than 73,000 people confirmed with COVID-19 infection as of Feb. 18, and nearly 2,000 deaths around the world, questions about how the virus spreads are becoming more urgent. Here’s what you should remember: COVID-19 spreads when the virus responsible for the disease, SARS-CoV-2, a coronavirus, is transmitted by one person to another in respiratory droplets. That means the virus can spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes and releases these droplets into the air, where they are either inhaled by others, or can land on other people’s mouths or noses if they’re near enough—generally ...

"There are no efficacious approaches to treating noncompressible hemorrhage," Huston said. "That's really the problem.
