Artificial blood vessels simulate rare accelerated aging disease

Artificial blood vessels simulate rare accelerated aging disease
Biomedical engineers have grown miniature human blood vessels that exhibit many of the symptoms and drug reactions associated with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome—an extremely rare genetic disease that causes symptoms resembling accelerated aging in children. The technology will help doctors and researchers screen potential therapeutics for the disease more rapidly, with the goal of eventually creating a platform for personalised screening.

Automatic technique measures blood pressure with accuracy

Automatic technique measures blood pressure with accuracy
An estimated 1 in 3 U.S. adults have high blood pressure. Blood pressure levels are often assessed by using automatic blood pressure devices. But these automatic devices are prone to significant errors, sometimes leading to the prescription of blood pressure-lowering medications to patients who don’t actually need them. Now researchers at the Jerusalem College of Technology and the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Israel have developed a method to more accurately measure systolic blood pressure.

An improved analysis of kidney cancer

An improved analysis of kidney cancer
Every year, just over 1000 people are diagnosed with kidney cancer in Sweden. The three most common variants are clear cell, papillary and chromophobe renal cancer. Researchers compare the gene expression in tumour cells from a kidney cancer patient with cells from healthy tissue to figure out in which part of the kidney the cancer began and what went wrong in these cells.

Wi-Fi radio signals detect REM in sleeping persons

Wi-Fi radio signals detect REM in sleeping persons
The Wi-Fi radio waves that our laptops use to communicate with wireless routers are quite sensitive to the environment they pass through. They’re so sensitive that a few years ago researchers at MIT were able to use them to wirelessly detect a child’s movement, breathing, and heart rate. Now the MIT team working with Massachusetts General Hospital have successfully demonstrated that they’re able to repurpose this Wi-Fi data to detect what state (light, deep, or REM) a sleeping person is in.

Cervical biopsy device improves quality of results

Cervical biopsy device improves quality of results
When a woman has an abnormal pap smear she usually undergoes colposcopy, the procedure physicians use to closely examine the cervix, vagina and vulva for signs of disease. Typically a metal instrument is used to obtain a small sampling of cells inside the cervix – a procedure that is oftentimes painful for the patient and does not consistently give good results.
