Dermal tattoo sensors for the detection of blood pH change and metabolite levels

The art of tattooing may have found a diagnostic twist. A team of scientists in Germany have developed permanent dermal sensors that can be applied as artistic tattoos. As detailed in the journal Angewandte Chemie, a colorimetric analytic formulation was

New study finds both components of blood pressure predict heart attack, stroke risk

Both numbers in a blood pressure reading—the “upper” systolic and the “lower” diastolic—independently predicted the risk of heart attack or stroke in a very large Kaiser Permanente study that included more than 36 million blood pressure readings from more than

Formation of new blood vessels in tumors regulated by p38 protein

Scientists close in on blood test for Alzheimer’s

Scientists are closing in on a long-sought goal—a blood test to screen people for possible signs of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. On Monday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference, half a dozen research groups gave new results

High blood pressure, cholesterol in young adults associated with later heart disease

Elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels in young adulthood may lead to an increased risk of heart disease later in life, regardless of later in life exposure to these risk factors, according to research published today in the Journal of

When a group of our neurons get activated by thinking hard about a math problem or the vibrant colors of an exotic flower, within a single second blood flow to those brain cells increases a bit. This bump in blood

Healthy blood vessels may be the answer to Alzheimer’s prevention

If you’re worried about Alzheimer’s disease, your best shot at prevention could be maintaining cardiovascular health through exercise and diet and staying on top of conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. That’s because USC researchers suspect healthy blood

Blood pressure science paper in a pharmacology journal RETRACTED after data manipulation discovered

A 2011 paper published in the British Journal of Pharmacology (BJP) has been retracted after it was found that data represented in the study were manipulated. The paper, entitled, “Mice lacking the Raf-1 kinase inhibitor protein exhibit exaggerated hypoxia-induced pulmonary

Carriers of a non-O blood type are more likely to suffer a heart attack, new research finds

Your blood type could determine your susceptibility to a heart attack. People whose blood types fell into a non-O blood group are at higher risk of heart attack and stroke, claim the researchers behind a compelling new study. The Dutch

Blood pressure medication RECALLED after it was discovered to be mislabeled
