New Motivation for Self-Improvement

Abstract:
A Drexel College of Medicine team is testing the power of magnets to eliminate some of the worries surrounding stents.

These tiny wire mesh tubes are implanted in the heart arteries of millions of Americans.

While the drug-coated versions are better at keeping arteries open, studies show they may also encourage blood clots, and trigger heart attacks.

Zachary Forbes, Ph. D., says, "We can target drugs through nanoparticles, and for the life of the stent in the body, treating it as many times as necessary if any complications should arise."
