Avinger (NSDQ:AVGR) this week released preliminary analysis results from its SCAN post-market study comparing optical coherence (OCT) to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), touting that data indicated that OCT imaging with its Pantheris system showed statistical superiority or equivalence to IVUS. In the study, researchers compared 240 matched images, 120 OCT and 120 IVUS, captured at identical positions within vessel segments from 12 subjects at two clinical centers, the Redwood City, Calif.-based company said. The images were reviewed and ranked by three independent radiologists on image quality and their ability to di...

Structure of human TFIID and mechanism of TBP loading onto promoter DNA
The general transcription factor IID (TFIID) is a critical component of the eukaryotic transcription preinitiation complex (PIC) and is responsible for recognizing the core promoter DNA and initiating PIC assembly. We used cryo–electron microscopy, chemical cross-linking mass spectrometry, and biochemical reconstitution to determine the complete molecular architecture of TFIID and define the conformational landscape of TFIID in the process of TATA box–binding protein (TBP) loading onto promoter DNA. Our structural analysis revealed five structural states of TFIID in the presence of TFIIA and promoter DNA, showi...

ImpediMed Launches Lymphedema Assessment System
As everyone knows, cancer treatment can be very tough on patients. One of the most common complications is something known as bilateral lymphoedema, a condition that causes significant swelling in the arms or legs. This condition is typically caused by the removal of or damage to the lymph nodes as part of whatever cancer treatment a patient might be undergoing. ImpediMed said it hopes to address this complication through the introduction of its flagship technology, the SOZO System. The SOZO System is a non-invasive device designed to measure, monitor, and manage fluid status and body composition in patients. This is done ...

That, at least, is how it’s always seemed—but things are apparently changing. According to a new study published in the journal Icarus, Saturn could be largely ringless in as little as 100 million years. Among astronomers, the smart betting has never been that Saturn’s rings would live forever. The diameter of the ring system is huge: 170,000 miles, or almost three-quarters of the distance from the Earth to the moon. But it’s also as little as 30 ...
