Big Data Adds Clarity, Certainty To Clinical Trial Outcomes For AFib

The 33 million people with atrial fibrillation worldwide not only suffer from bothersome symptoms, but also face a fivefold increased risk of stroke and a twofold increased risk of death. Research teams led by Mayo Clinic published three connected studies on Friday, March 15, clarifying the benefits of catheter ablation versus rate- or rhythm-control medications to treat atrial fibrillation.

Two studies published in JAMA describe the results of the Catheter Ablation Versus Antiarrhythmic Drug Therapy for Atrial Fibrillation (CABANA) clinical trial. Read the related news release.

The third study, published in the European Heart Journal, displays how massive amounts of data collected from routine clinical practice can help transform care when put in the hands of researchers. This observational study, conducted in parallel to the CABANA trial, replicated the trial in a real-world patient

Engineering Treatments For The Opioid Epidemic

The U.S. is reeling from a public health crisis driven by the misuse of prescription and illicit opioids with nearly 12 million people abusing the drugs annually. The Midwest saw opioid overdoses increase 70% from July 2016 to September 2017, and every 15 minutes a baby is born suffering from opioid withdrawal as a result of maternal opioid abuse.

A biomedical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis is developing a therapeutic option that would prevent the opiates from crossing the blood-brain barrier, preventing the high abusers seek.

Jai Rudra, assistant professor of biomedical engineering in the McKelvey School of Engineering, is developing nanovaccines to combat opioid misuse with a two-year, $373,068 grant from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) through its Cutting-Edge Basic Science Research award program.

Beyond The Movie "Five Feet Apart," A Real-Life Journey With Cystic Fibrosis

In more ways than one, Emily Schaller is a rock star.

The vivacious, 37-year-old Detroit native played drums in a local band when she was younger.

She remains larger than life today, a star whom countless others look up to, as she works tirelessly to spread awareness about cystic fibrosis, the genetic disease she was born with.

Spreading awareness

About 30,000 Americans have this rare disease, which affects many organs but particularly the lungs and digestive system. It is caused by mutations in the gene that makes the CFTR protein.

People with CF experience frequent lung infections and persistent lung damage because they are unable to clear thickened mucus in their lungs. Over time, this damage makes it hard to breathe. Patients also have trouble gaining weight, because the disease prevents the pancreas from supplying the digestive enzymes that are needed to break down food.

Sepsis A Leading Cause Of Death In US Hospitals But Many Deaths May Not Be Preventable

Sepsis is a major contributor to disability, death and health care costs in the United States and worldwide. A growing recognition of the high burden of sepsis as well as media coverage of high-profile, sepsis-induced deaths have catalyzed new efforts to prevent and manage the disease. While new initiatives have been beneficial in paving the road toward better detection and treatment of sepsis, the role of sepsis in associated deaths and their preventability remain largely unknown. To address this question, a research team at Brigham and Women's Hospital has comprehensively reviewed the characteristics and clinical management of patients who died with sepsis. The results are published in JAMA Network Open.

"It seems intuitive that all infections should be curable with antibiotics," said Chanu Rhee, MD, MPH, lead author and critical care physician at the Brigham. "But up until now, the e
