  • Flexible New Method for Early Cancer Diagnosis

    [18 May 2017] Earlier discovery of cancer and greater precision in the treatment process are the objectives of a new method developed by researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy and Boston University. Investments are now being made to roll out this innovation across healthcare and broaden the scope of the research in this field.

  • Significant Weight Loss Following Vagus Nerve Stimulation

    [2 May 2017] Thirty percent less food intake and significant weight loss - these are the findings of research conducted at the Sahlgrenska Academy that saw laboratory animals receiving so-called vagus nerve stimulation. The research has also given us a better idea of the effect the method has on the body.

  • New risk assessment will protect the feet of diabetes patients

    [27 Apr 2017] A stringently designed web form with questions about foot ulcers, deformities and neuropathy will soon be brought into use to better protect the feet of people with diabetes. The tool is a result of research conducted at Sahlgrenska Academy.

  • Success in the 3D Bioprinting of Cartilage

    [20 Apr 2017] A team of researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy has managed to generate cartilage tissue by printing stem cells using a 3D-bioprinter. The fact that the stem cells survived being printed in this manner is a success in itself. In addition, the research team was able to influence the cells to multiply and differentiate to form chondrocytes (cartilage cells) in the printed structure.

  • Decrease in cardiovascular diseases benefits persons with diabetes

    [13 Apr 2017] The incidence of cardiovascular diseases in Sweden has decreased sharply since the late 1990s. These are the findings of a study from Sahlgrenska Academy which included almost three million adult Swedes. In relative terms, the biggest winners are persons with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

  • Early blood signatures of vaccine immunogenicity

    [13 Apr 2017] Within seven days of vaccination, a blood test early after vaccination can predict whether vaccines based on living, modified viruses have had the desired effect. This is one of the results of a new study from a large European research collaboration on systems analysis of immune responses induced by a highly promising vaccine against Ebola in which University of Gothenburg is participating. This result can inform and accelerate rational development of other new vaccines based on living viruses.

  • Hearing and touch mediate sensations via osseointegrated prostheses

    [6 Apr 2017] A new study has found that people with a prosthesis attached directly to their skeleton can hear by means of vibrations in their implant. This sound transmission through bones is an important part of osseoperception - sensory awareness of the patient¿s surroundings provided by their prosthesis. This discovery sheds new light on the tactile and auditory perception of humans and can be used to develop improved prostheses.

  • New Findings from Research into Multiple Concussions in Hockey Players

    [3 Apr 2017] The relationship between head injuries suffered during contact sport and Alzheimer's disease is now being called into question thanks to research by the Sahlgrenska Academy, which has revealed that hockey players with multiple concussions probably have other injuries in their brains.

  • Majority of Incontinence Treatments Deliver Poor Results

    [29 Mar 2017] Surgery is the most reliable method of treatment for incontinence -ccuring the condition in just over eight in ten cases; other types of treatment, meanwhile, do not deliver the same kind of success. These are the findings of a comprehensive systematic overview of cure rates for the treatment of incontinence around the world during the last ten years.

  • Cortisol excess hits natural DNA process and mental health hard

    [28 Mar 2017] High concentrations of the stress hormone, Cortisol, in the body affect important DNA processes and increase the risk of long-term psychological consequences. These relationships are evident in a study from the Sahlgrenska Academy on patients with Cushing's Syndrome, but the findings also open the door for new treatment strategies for other stress-related conditions such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress.
