Heart Model Simulates Mechanical Load on Cardiac Tissues

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, along with collaborators in the Netherlands, have developed a heart model consisting of engineered cardiac muscle tissue that is attached to an elastic material. The design allows the team to mimic the mechanical forces experienced by heart tissue in the body, which should provide them with more accurate data when… Read More »

Every-other-month injectable cabotegravir and rilpivirine suppresses viral load for two years

Long-acting cabotegravir (Vocabria) and rilpivirine (Rekambys) injections maintain viral suppression for two years, according to follow-up study results presented this week at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). The European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the injectable combination — the first complete HIV regimen that does not require daily pills — in December 2020.… Read More »
