Peptides/Nanomedicine for AS

Using biocompatible and biodegradable peptides in nanomedicine for atherosclerosis provides targeting and therapeutic functionality that can assist in overcoming delivery barriers of traditional drugs and makes them attractive for in vivo use. Here is the latest research.

Secondary Parkinson disease

Secondary Parkinson disease refers to a group of disorders that present similarly to Parkinson disease but have different etiology. Secondary Parkinson disease is caused due to the blockade of or interference in dopamine’s action in the basal ganglia. Here is the latest research.

Embolic Disease

Embolic diseases can result in serious complications, depending where the emboli travels and organs that it affects. Thromboembolisms arise from pieces of a blood clot breaking free. Treatment and prevention involves anticoagulants for the different types of embolic diseases. Here is the latest research on embolic diseases.

Cardiovascular Inflammation

Inflammation plays a significant role in the development of cardiovascular diseases, an understanding of these endogenous processes is critical for evaluating the risks and potential treatment strategies. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular inflammation here.

Inosine: Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement. Drug Inosine is proposed to slow progression of this disease. Here is the latest research on Inosine in PD.

Hypothalamic Vasculature

The interrelationship of hypothalamic neurons and pituitary cells with the vasculature is important role for regulating the pattern of neurohormone exposure. Discover new insights into hypothalamic vasculature with this feed.

Hypoxia

Hypoxia is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply at the tissue level. Hypoxia may be classified as either generalized, affecting the whole body, or local, affecting a region of the body. Here is the latest research.

Stem Cells in Cardiac Repair

Stem cells have the therapeutic potential for cardiac repair and regeneration after myocardial infarction. Discover the latest research in Stem Cells In Cardiac Repair here.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Omega-3 & Diabetes

This feed focuses on the potential role of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation in patients with diabetes, such as reducing cardiovascular disease.
