Research shows reduced Surgical Site Infections with use of Antimicrobial Sutures

New analyses of the published clinical studies indicate that antimicrobial sutures are effective for preventing surgical site infections (SSIs), and they can result in significant cost savings. The results are published in the British Journal of Surgery. In one analysis that included 21 randomized clinical trials, investigators found a risk of 138 surgical site infections …

Signaling pathway that controls blood vessel development in brain has ability stop medulloblastoma, a cerebellar tumor.

A research team at the Krembil Research Institute has discovered that a signaling pathway which controls blood vessel development in the brain has the ability to stop brain tumor formation in animal models of medulloblastoma, the most common malignant brain tumor diagnosed in children. The findings, published in the journal eLife, are the first to …
