‘Flow diverter mechanism finding favour in tackling brain aneurysms’
‘Flow diverter mechanism finding favour in tackling brain aneurysms’
While treatment of brain aneurysms has seen significant reduction in mortality rate owing to the coiling method that sees a catheter pushed towards the brain from the groin to remove the blockage, for larger aneurysms, a flow diverter stent is a better option, according to Dr Kalpesh Shah at Zydus Hospital in Ahmedabad. Speaking at a virtual session on Friday, Dr Shah said, “The most common…

Payers, providers clash over telehealth reimbursement as Congress mulls changes
As members of Congress decide how to expand access to telehealth after the pandemic, one of the biggest questions has centered around how much Medicare providers should be paid for virtual care.

Biden admin throws out Texas Medicaid waiver
The Biden administration on Friday unwound a 10-year extension of Texas’ Medicaid waiver, arguing that the Trump administration should not have approved its more than $100 billion request without going through the usual notice and comment period. Texas asked CMS to fast-track an extension of its Medicaid waiver, which mostly covers uncompensated care costs, in November. At the time, the state…

New CRISPR technology offers unrivaled control of epigenetic inheritance
New CRISPR technology offers unrivaled control of epigenetic inheritance
Scientists have figured out how to modify CRISPR’s basic architecture to extend its reach beyond the genome and into what’s known as the epigenome — proteins and small molecules that latch onto DNA and control when and where genes are switched on or off. In a paper published April 9, 2021, in the journal Cell, researchers at UC San Francisco and the Whitehead Institute describe a novel…

Fruit flies give researchers new insights into the 'highway of the nerve cells'
Fruit flies give researchers new insights into the ‘highway of the nerve cells’
The nervous system is the internet of the human body and can in the same way transfer signals over long distances very quickly. Some of the most important elements in this signaling are the axons. They are projections of the nerve cells which send signals to other nerve cells or muscles. For instance, axons that jut out from nerve cells in the spinal cord can be over one meter long. Researchers…

Egg and sperm cell size evolved from competition
Egg and sperm cell size evolved from competition
In most living animals, egg cells are vastly larger than sperm cells. In humans, for example, a single egg is 10 million times the volume of a sperm cell. In a new study, Northwestern University researchers found that competition and natural selection drove this curious size discrepancy. Using mathematical modeling, the researchers considered a time very early in evolution when primordial species…

Study shows past COVID-19 infection doesn’t fully protect young people against reinfection
