Blood circulation pressure , measured while asleep correlates better with center attacks and strokes compared to blood circulation pressure measured in the doctor’s office, explains Rajiv Agarwal, MD . However, if blood pressure measurement disturbs rest, then it could weaken the partnership between ‘sleeping BP’ and these cardiovascular events. Along with his data-supervisor, Robert Light, BS , Agarwal analyzed the outcomes of 24-hour blood pressure monitoring in 103 patients with kidney disease.Kent Osborne, M.D., director of the Dan L.

Targeting Intrinsically-Resistant Breast Cancers Stem Cells with Gamma-Secretase Inhibitors Treating breast malignancy with a Notch pathway inhibitor reduced the power of cancer stem cells to replenish themselves and promote tumor growth, researchers reported at the CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breasts Cancer Symposium. These results suggest that ongoing clinical trials testing this course of agents can offer promising results, especially when coupled with other anticancer treatments.
