A biventricular repair for Jayce ’s one-of-a-kind heart

Mon, 08/14/2017 - 13:00
Amanda Mattioli was working in Afghanistan as a government contractor and had just completed a whirlwind round of travel to three separate continents when she learned she was pregnant. The helicopter unit that took her back to the main base so she could return home for her pregnancy gave her a unit sticker to commemorate her baby’s first helicopter ride. Little did she know it would also mark the beginning of a much longer journey for her and her son, William “Jayce” James. Amanda got her first hint the ride would be bumpy at her 20-week ultrasound, when she learned Jayce’s heart was on the right side of his chest, rather than the left side. She was sent to a hospital in nearby Pittsburgh for a level 2 ultrasound, where doctors discovered Jayce had three other major heart defects: ...

Mauna Kea touts Cellvizio pancreatic cyst diagnosis data

Wed, 07/12/2017 - 18:01
Mauna Kea (ENT:MKEA) today touted the results from a recently published study of its Cellvizio system which supported the use of the device in diagnosing pancreatic cysts. The Cellvizio device is designed for use in a variety of surgical procedures, providing real time visualization at the microscopic level, Mauna Kea said. Results from the study were published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, the French company said. In the study, researchers evaluated in vivo and ex vivo confocal endomicroscopy of pancreatic cystic lesions, Mauna Kea reported. The researchers concluded that in vivo nCLE patterns were reproducible in ex vivo pCLE for all major neoplastic pancreatic cysts. “This new peer reviewed study led by Dr. Krishna provides further validation of the application of Cellviz...

7 medtech stories we missed this week: June 30, 2017

Fri, 06/30/2017 - 19:01
[Image from unsplash.com]From ConforMIS touting its knee replacement study to Consulting Radiologists’s new breast cancer detection tool, here are seven medtech stories we missed this week but thought were still worth mentioning. 1. Study: Low-dose CT scanning improves Ankylosing Spondylitis assessment A new study has shown that low-dose computed tomography (LD-CT) is more sensitive than X-rays for monitoring disease progression in people who have Ankylosing Spondylitis, according to a June 15 press release. LD-CT has previously been proven to be sensitive and reliable when assessing bone growth in different patients. The new study is designed to compare how well it can show the formation of new bony growth (syndesmophytes) and an increase in size in syndesmophytes. The study showed...

Real Stories Of Americans Who Will Be Affected By The Proposed Changes To The ACA — And What YOU Can Do To Fight

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 19:11
With the proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), 20 million Americans are at risk of losing their health care coverage. A survey, conducted by Brunswick Partners, found that “75 percent of Americans agree that the proposed changes to Medicaid in the AHCA are a bad idea. And that we should not allow 14 million Americans to become uninsured even if there is a potential to reduce Medicaid spending. These results are significant because they find majorities of Americans identifying as conservatives (55 percent), moderates (82 percent) and liberals (90 percent) are opposed to the AHCA’s Medicaid provisions.” Some of the proposed changes to the ACA made by the House include: Over $800 Billion in cuts to Medicaid* Elimination of the Medicaid expansion* Rev...

Hidden immune cells cause lung transplant failure

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 03:00
(Northwestern University) Scientists have discovered that a subset of immune cells called nonclassical monocytes, previously unknown to reside in the lungs, play a key role in driving primary graft dysfunction (PGD), the leading cause of death after lung transplantation. The study demonstrates targeting these cells could lead to novel treatments for PGD, a complication that currently impacts more than half of transplant patients.

Using Viruses to Boost Mesothelioma Immunotherapy

Tue, 06/06/2017 - 16:02
Immunotherapy through clinical trials is becoming a promising treatment option for some mesothelioma patients. Checkpoint inhibitor drugs, such as Keytruda, already have U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval as first-line treatments for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), edging immunotherapy drugs closer to becoming a viable second-line therapy for other thoracic cancers, including pleural mesothelioma. However, overall response to immune therapies remains relatively low. Researchers across the country are striving to enhance responsiveness to immunotherapy drugs. Leading that trend is viroimmunotherapy, or the process of combining cancer-killing (oncolytic) viruses with immunotherapy drugs. Dr. Manish Patel, an assistant professor in the division of hematology, oncology and...
