Noninvasive vagus nerve stimulator receives FDA clearance for cluster headache prevention

Patients might soon be able to use a handheld vagus nerve stimulator to prevent cluster headaches with two daily treatments. The device is already currently cleared by the FDA to treat acute cluster headache pain and migraine headaches in adults.

High exposure to radio frequency radiation associated with cancer in male rats

The National Toxicology Program concluded that exposure to high frequency radio radiation, like that in 2G and 3G phones was developed cancerous heart tumors. The evidence for female rats is equivocal. It is important to note that the rats’ whole

Glow-In-The-Dark Paper Test Rapidly Detects Infectious Diseases

A drop of blood on this paper-based diagnostic test can detect three antibiodies to pathogens, which can also provide a qualitative measurement of the amount of antibiodies as well. The provider uses a smartphone camera to measure the color change

MIT’s Non-Invasive Glucometer as Accurate as Finger Pricks In Early Clinical Study

Non-invasive testing of blood glucose is a challenge, but researchers at MIT have developed a fiber-optic probe with a Raman spectroscopy system that was as good as a finger prick measurement. This was compared to a blood draw, which was

Dementia risk: Five-minute scan ‘can predict cognitive decline’

Ultrasound measurement of carotid pulses was positively associated with accelerated cognitive decline. It is thought that an intense pulse can damage the small vessels in the brain, causing structural changes and mini-strokes. This can lead to early interventions, such as

MRI Helps to Optimize Vagus Nerve Stimulation for GI Conditions

The FDA approved vagus stimulation for various GI conditions. Researchers at Purdue University are using MRI to see how vagus stimulation of the pylorus sphincter induced relaxation to better understand the role of vagus stimulation in treatment. https://www.medgadget.com/2018/11/mri-helps-to-optimize-vagus-nerve-stimulation-for-gi-conditions.html
