Artificial Blood Vessels Become Resistant To Thrombosis
Surgery, associated with cardiovascular diseases, such as ischemia, often require the implantation of vascular grafts – artificial blood vessels, aimed at restoring the blood flow in a problematic part of the circulatory system. A serious disadvantage of vascular grafts is their tendency to get blocked due to clot formation, which results in compulsory and lifelong intake of anticoagulants among patients and sometimes may even require an additional surgical intervention. In the study, a research team led by Vladimir Vinogradov, head of the International Laboratory of Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies at ITMO University proposed a solution to the problem.
Childhood Trauma Leads To Brains Wired For Fear
Last week, a report by the University of San Diego School of Law found that about 686,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect in 2013. Traumatic childhood events can lead to mental health and behavioral problems later in life, explains psychiatrist and traumatic stress expert Bessel van der Kolk, author of the recently published book, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma. Children’s brains are literally shaped by traumatic experiences, which can lead to problems with anger, addiction, and even criminal activity in adulthood, says van der Kolk. Sound Medicine’s Barbara Lewis spoke with him about his book.

I trained him to alert to depressive episodes and self harm not both but he alerted.

Dog Loses Eyes To Glaucoma, 'Younger Siblings' Take On Role Of Guide Animals
After a vet tech's 10-year-old dog lost both eyes to glaucoma, her two younger pets stepped up to act as guides to the injured animal.

Scientists Discover How Some Of The World’s First Animals Reproduced
Rangeomorphs, which lived about 565 million years ago, were pretty strange. They're often considered to be some of the first animals to evolve on Earth, but they share little in common with modern critters — they look more like plants. But according to a new study, their reproductive techniques were astonishingly complex — and familiar, too. The research, published Monday in Nature Communications, used statistical analysis to determine what kind of reproductive strategy was used by the genus Fractofusus, a type of rangeomorph. ...
