Why rotavirus infection victims die, why the genome of its pathogen looks completely insane for a molecular biologist, can you get vaccinated against rotavirus, if you are an adult, which vaccine is the best and safest and if Russia should be vaccinated nationwide – read the new issue of the rubric “What they treat us with.”

Platelet scattering will help in the treatment of cardiovascular disease

Scientists from the I. Kant Baltic Federal University using Raman spectroscopy examined the platelets of patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases and compared them with the spectra of healthy people’s cells. Researchers identified informative spectral regions and showed the promise of studying human platelets using Raman spectroscopy to diagnose diseases associated with changes in the activity of these cells and predict the effectiveness of antithrombotic therapy.

The study was supported by a grant from the Russian Science Foundation. The results are presented at several conferences on optics and medicine: Optics in Health Care and Biomedical Optics IX, October 20–23, 2019, Hangzhou, China and the 6th Annual European Congress on Clinical and Translational Medicine. October 18-20, 2019 Vienna, Austria, and also published in the SPIE Digital Library and the European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine. Continue reading
