Diuretics are the mainstay therapy for congestion, their use is often associated with hypotension, electrolyte abnormalities, renal deterioration, and possibly increase mortality. Potassium-sparing diuretics arginine vasopressin levels heart failure heart failure and can result in myocardial fibrosis / hypertrophy and vasoconstriction by activating V1a receptors, as well as in water retention and hyponatremia by activating V2 receptors.10 In heart failure, vasopressin antagonist can not only prevent the progression of left ventricular dysfunction, but unlike angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and – blockers, can also lead to acute congestion and improve hyponatremia..

Drs Li and Cohen also found that of the of the virus-cell-to-cell spread by the addition of compounds, the E – glycoprotein prevent degrading the binding of insulin to enzyme. Such a compound was the common topical antibacterial agent bacitracin. Although the amount of bacitracin needed to effectively interact in the laboratory would be too high to take safe for humans, the finding suggests the new receptor could be a valid target for new shingles and chickenpox treatments..

- Medical transcription is the growth in Speech RecognitionA new report by independent market analyst Datamonitor discusses speech recognition and its use in the medical industry for transcription and dictation. It shows that the health care automation engine driving growth in speech technology and the leading supplier, Nuance and Philips offer specialized solutions. The report, automate and extend processes by Voice in desktop and back-office environments, said, although adoption of PC-based is voice recognition is not widespread, the technology is key their niche in the healthcare market, where automation and cost savings are driver found. Forcing tightening budgets and the need for accurate medical records healthcare providers processes processes with speech recognition -.

The study was supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research, the Swedish Research Council, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Stockholm County Council. Continue reading
