Studying Simulated Car Crashes Involving Pregnant Women
Although states are not required to report fetal deaths in accident data, between 300 and 1,000 unborn babies die in car accidents each year. This accident fatality rate is about four times the rate for victims between infancy and four years old, said Stefan Duma, head of the Virginia Tech - Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Science (SBES). "There is no silver bullet to solving these problems," Duma added... (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

BME Researcher Builds New Sensor To Distinguish Between Stable Plaque And Heart Attack Plaque
Viterbi School biomedical engineer and cardiologist Tzung John Hsiai hopes to develop a new tool to help clinicians distinguish cardiac emergencies requiring immediate surgery from chronic problems manageable with drugs and lifestyle change. Angiograms, images made by catheters inserted into the arteries feeding the heart, offer an inside view of the interior surface ("lumen") of these blood vessels, often revealing deposits of a dangerous fatty substance called plaque.

TAU's New Biodegradable Fibers Advance Stent Technology And Brain Surgery, Then Disappear
Stents that keep weakened and flabby arteries from collapsing have been true life-savers. But after six months, those stents are no longer needed - once the arteries are strengthened, they become unnecessary. Previously, doctors had no choice but to leave them in place. Prof. Meital Zilberman of Tel Aviv University's Department of Biomedical Engineering has developed a new patent-pending fiber platform that carries drugs where they're needed, then dissolves.

Researchers Identify Proteins In Lung Cancer Cells That May Provide Potential Drug Targets
(Boston) – Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and the Boston University Biomedical Engineering Department have identified a number of proteins whose activation allows them to distinguish between cancer and normal cells with almost 97 percent accuracy. In addition, the BU researchers have developed a new computational strategy to analyze this data and specifically identify key biological pathways (molecular circuits) that are active in cancer and “dormant” in normal cells. The study which appears in the November 25th issue of PLoS ONE, will ultimately lead to the development of drugs specific...
