  • Early blood test may unravel secrets of pregnancy loss

    A blood test taken after a miscarriage suffered as early as week five can help explain why it occurred and in some cases lead to preventative treatments, a Danish-led study has found. Gynecologist, Henriette Svarre-Nielsen and head of the COPL (Copenhagen Pregnancy Loss) project, of Hvidovre hospital near Copenhagen and her team of researchers recently published a study in British journal The Lancet showing that the tests can determine whether the foetus had a chromosome anomaly or whether they should look for another reason.

  • Scientists Develop New Universal Blood Substitute

    Scientists from the Russian city of Obninsk have developed a life-saving new blood substitute called "Krunidon", which has the potential to substitute any blood type, regardless of the rhesus factor. Blood transfusions can be complicated because some people's body reject blood from certain types, and not all blood types are always available on hand to help people in need. Scientists say Krunidon is completely free from infections typically found in human donor blood and can be used as a transfusion for any blood type. The substitute is capable of carrying oxygen to tissues and stimulating blood formation in case of blood loss or reduction of blood supply. The new substitute is going to be used in military medicine and is highly demanded by the Russian Ministry of Defence. The medicine is currently being tested according to the rigorous requirements of the Russian military and may become the standard by the end of 2017. Of course, Krunidon has many potential life-saving civilian applications as well.
