A new device, FemoStop, in which the compression bag is replaced with a translucent one made of polyethylene for easy inspection, was used in 74 patients (76 examinations) who underwent angiography, including the setting of indwelling catheters in 10 patients, to obtain an easy and reliable maneuver for arresting hemorrhage at the puncture site. No failure in arrest of hemorrhage was recognized, and complications such as hematoma and re-bleeding were nonexistent. The doctor's time required for the arrest of hemorrhage was less than 5 minutes. On the other hand, in a beginner using the conventional manual compression method in 74 patients (74 examinations), the rate of failing to arrest hemorrhage was 5/74 cases, small hematoma was seen in three cases, re-bleeding occurred in one, and the time required for arrest was about 20 minutes. In conclusion, FemoStop was clinically useful for beginners.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
