Uncontrolled Hypertension Treated with Renal Denervation

   Renal denervation, an intravascular procedure that employs radiofrequency pulses induces denervation of the sympathetic innervation of a patient's renal arteries. Approximately 10,000 patients have been treated worldwide resulting in a drop in blood pressure of 28/10 mm Hg in patients that began their treatment with pressures of approximately 180/100 mm Hg, with a response rate of over 90% and a duration of over 36 months of follow-up.
   Additionally, RD was applied to normotensive patients with heart failure resulting in a 25% improvement in left ventricular ejection fraction 12 months after RD.
   RD is investigational in the US.

Intranasal Stem cell Delivery in PD Rat model

  Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) were delivered into the nose preferentially migrated to the brain and survived up to six months improving motor function significantly (up 68%) in the rat model of Parkinson's disease. Levels of dopamine were much higher in the treated rats.
