PinnacleHealth CardioVascular Institute enrolled the first patient in the United States in a trial assessing the safety and effectiveness of a new type of approach for blockages in the leg artery. DISRUPT PAD III is the largest ever multi-center randomized study to exclusively enroll patients with calcified peripheral artery disease (PAD).

Artificial Pancreas Improves Blood Sugar Control in Young Kids

An artificial pancreas, which delivers insulin in an automated way to individuals with type 1 diabetes, appears to be safe and effective for use in children ages 5 to 8 years, a new study finds. Results will be presented Tuesday at the Endocrine Society’s 99th annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.

Tiny Bioengineered Blood Vessel Grafts Aid Delicate Microsurgeries

Scientists have been working diligently to create engineered tissue implants to repair or replace damaged or diseased tissue and organs; but their success hinges on the ability to build a sturdy connection linking the implant’s blood vessels and the patient’s existing vasculature. National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)-funded researchers have created segments of engineered blood vessels to address this critical issue.

New Research Shows Promise for the Production of Patient-Matched Blood Cells for Therapies, Disease Modeling and Drug Screening

The Galat laboratory at Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, has developed an elegant system to derive blood cell precursors from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSC). This type of stem cell has the potential to develop into many different kinds of cells in the body, and is capable of participating in organ repair and function. These qualities have prompted scientists to test the use of hPSC to treat some diseases. However, the development of a fully defined system to generate functional blood cell precursors has proven to be a significant challenge. The Galat lab’s findings hold promise to overcome this challenge.
