Medical device could promote spread of cancer in women

When a medical device is made available to health care providers, the assumption is that it is safe for patients. Furthermore, doctors opting to use the device could also be considered another acknowledgement of safety and effectiveness. However, recent actions taken by Johnson & Johnson, a major medical device manufacturer, are causing significant concern.

Cognitive disease correlated with brain injury rises in veterans

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis has been making big news after the high-profile diagnosis of several professional athletes. North Carolina military members may find this condition particularly disconcerting, considering the increasing rates of ALS among military veterans. Although researchers are not yet sure why veterans are twice as likely to develop this serious condition that can be caused by brain injury, experts and advocates alike are reaching out to improve the quality of life for those suffering from the condition.

Brain injury victims may benefit from implantable technology

Many military members suffer from memory loss after receiving serious brain injuries while in combat. Now, new research funded by the Pentagon may provide the key to reversing memory loss suffered by civilians during brain injury events. The new technology seems promising, especially after a decade of failed tries at pharmaceutical remedies for memory loss after brain injury. Now, a new type of implantable probe may be used to help those who have suffered brain injury that resulted in memory loss.
