Sympfiny system administers multiparticulate medications

Sympfiny system administers multiparticulate medications
Multiparticulate medications can consist of beads, mini-tablets and microspheres encased in a coating that hides their flavour and prevents them from being dissolved before they reach the stomach. Benefits include the ability to make these medications have just about any flavour, to make them release the drug at a pre-programmed rate, and even release it in regular bursts. Because these medications are physically quite different than liquid meds, they can be difficult to administer.

Alzheimer’s patient treated with focused ultrasound

Alzheimer’s patient treated with focused ultrasound
The blood-brain barrier prevents almost all potentially therapeutic drugs from passing into the brain. This has been a major roadblock for clinical neurology, but we may have a solution, perhaps a partial one, in the form of focused ultrasound. The first Alzheimer’s patient has just been treated using ultrasound to open up the blood-brain barrier in his brain. Though no drugs have been administered, the researchers are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of the technique on such patients.

Placebo effect can soothe heartache

Placebo effect can soothe heartache
Feeling heartbroken from a recent breakup? Just believing you're doing something to help yourself get over your ex can influence brain regions associated with emotional regulation and lessen the perception of pain. That's the takeaway from a University of Colorado Boulder study that measured the neurological and behavioral impacts the placebo effect had on a group of recently broken-hearted volunteers.
