These data show fewer than 1 in 6 Americans, or 16 percent, smoked a cigarette in the past week. . . . → Read More: Infographic – U.S. Smoking Rate Hits New Low

Tissue-Engineered Heart Chamber Model Developed

Left-ventricle heart model

A university bioengineering group developed a model of a left ventricle, the heart chamber that pumps blood to the body, made with engineered heart muscle tissue to replace animals for drug testing. . . . → Read More: Tissue-Engineered Heart Chamber Model Developed

Wearables, Game App Help Boost Exercise Levels

Woman walking and reading

A study assessing FitBit devices and a game-style mobile app shows a combination of the technologies results in more exercise by office workers, at least at the outset, than just the FitBit alone. . . . → Read More: Wearables, Game App Help Boost Exercise Levels

Gene Therapy Shown to Reduce Extreme High Cholesterol

Heart check

A gene therapy technique that stops production of a targeted protein is shown in tests with monkeys to reduce levels of harmful cholesterol, but also expose potential risks associated with the technique. . . . → Read More: Gene Therapy Shown to Reduce Extreme High Cholesterol

Gene Therapy Safety Study for Heart Failure Underway

Heartbeat graphic

An early-stage clinical trial is testing gene therapy to treat malfunctioning heart muscle cells in people with heart failure, where the heart cannot pump enough blood for the body. . . . → Read More: Gene Therapy Safety Study for Heart Failure Underway

Computer-Designed Heart Valves Operate Over Long Term

Engineered heart valve

A European research team designed customized heart valves with computer models, which when tested in sheep continued to perform in most cases for a year following implantation. . . . → Read More: Computer-Designed Heart Valves Operate Over Long Term
