Researchers identify a new mechanism by which transplanted stem cells treat disease | Medical Xpress Biomedical technology MAY 18, 2021

by University of California, Irvine

UCI scholars Zachary W. Wagoner, a graduate student researcher in cellular & molecular biosciences, and Weian Zhao, professor of pharmaceutical sciences, have identified a new mechanism by which transplanted stem cells treat disease. Their findings are contrary to the long-standing conventional wisdom that diseased tissue is repaired through stem cells differentiating into new cells or producing beneficial molecular secretions.

Irish health system struggling to recover from cyberattack | Tech Xplore MAY 18, 2021 / Security

by Sylvia Hui, Danica Kirka and Frank Bajak

A general view of St Luke’s Hospital which has been affected by a ransomware attack, in Rathgar, Dublin, Saturday, May 15 2021. Ireland’s health system is struggling to restore computers and treat patients four days after it shut down its entire information technology system in response to a ransomware attack. Authorities said hundreds of people were assigned to respond to the attack but it could be weeks before the public health service will return to normal. The chief clinical officer of Ireland’s public health service said Tuesday, May 18 that the intrusion was having “a profound impact on our ability to deliver care” and that disruptions would undoubtedly “mount in the coming days and weeks.”  Credit: Niall Carson/PA via AP / https://techxplore.com/news/2021-05-irish-health-struggling-recover-cyberattack.html

In People with Cardiovascular Disease, High- or Low-Dose Aspirin Lowers Chance of Heart Attack or Stroke

People with cardiovascular disease taking aspirin to lower their chances of suffering a heart attack or stroke experienced similar health benefits, including reduced death and hospitalization for heart attack and stroke, whether they took a high or low dose of aspirin, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine

The PCORI-funded study, ADAPTABLE, is the first large-scale study of aspirin dosing to be embedded in real-world practice and the first randomized controlled trial conducted using PCORnet®, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network.

Its Ehlers-Danlos Awareness Month

Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes

Regarding Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD’s) we have been providing information and support for a few years now. The difference now is that it is more noticeable that we do. This section for Rare Disease has been a long time in the planning and now EDS has a proper home on FibroFlutters website.

As an organisation FibroFlutters & ZebraStrutters support Ehlers Danlos Support UK (EDS UK) and Ehlers Danlos Society, and the Hypermobility Association (HMSA). Our doors are open to all. We are interested to hear your stories and are willing to share them here for you. You might have interesting articles and research that you think we should have on the site. When you have awareness campaigns or upcoming events we are also happy to help circulate them across our network.

If you are interested in contributing, or have something to share please contact Carole via the button below.

Webinar series

How genetics and genomics are being leveraged to support modern drug hunting, and how this is being applied in big pharma | Frontline Genomics

Webinar 1: Leveraging genetics and genomics for drug discovery and development
Thursday 13th May – 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

This webinar will focus on the roles genetics and genomics are playing in modern drug discovery, how biopharma is approaching genomics-led drug discovery and development across the pipeline, how processes are being improved and what this could mean going forward.

This has already taken place

Webinar 2: Functional Genomics tools for target ID & validation
Thursday 20th May – 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

Functional genomics presents a huge opportunity to understand the targetable genome and how this can be leveraged for drug discovery. This webinar will discuss the different technologies that biopharma is leveraging for functional genomics studies, evaluate their limitations and future direction.

Webinar 3: Coupling genomic data with diverse datasets
Thursday 27th May – 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

While genetics and genomics present a huge opportunity for drug discovery, the increasing ability and ease to capture multi-omics data, or couple “omics” data with imaging data, presents a huge opportunity to translate findings into targets. This webinar will focus on the opportunities to leverage diverse data for drug target discovery, address the challenges of this at scale and present opportunities for future developments.


This webinar series has been made possible due to the kind support of ‘Frontline Genomics‘ partner 10x Genomics.

May is Huntington Disease Awareness Month – Check Rare

By: Victoria Radke | Published on: May 15, 2021

Initiated by the Huntington Society of Canada, Huntington Disease Awareness Month has since become a global movement. Organizations such as the Huntington Disease Society of America and the European Huntington Association have joined in through campaigns like #LetsTalkAboutHD, which encourages families to share their experiences with Huntington disease on social media.

Huntington disease is a debilitating, inherited, neurodegenerative disorder.
