Nonclinical Cardiotoxicity Testing: Stem Cell Use

Prospective identification and potential amelioration of cardiotoxicity is a critical component of contemporary drug development, particularly for targeted therapies (e.g., tyrosine kinases) in oncology that are designed to inhibit critical signaling pathways shared...

Turbulent Blood Flow may Increase Cardiovascular Risk

By utilizing the basic principles of hemodynamics and hydraulics, research suggests that fluid retention is detrimental for the cardiovascular system because it increases the likelihood of turbulent blood flow, regardless of whether or not blood pressure is raised. ...
