Study shows magnetic stimulation effectively treats frozen gait in Parkinson's. Thoughts health innovators?

Parkinson’s disease (PD) belongs to a group of conditions called motor system disorders, which are the result of the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. The four primary symptoms of PD are tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, or slowness of movement; and…

Finally- Researchers identify link between cannabis use in young males and raised schizophrenia risk. Thoughts health innovators?

Now, a new study from researchers at University of Toronto shows that male teens who experiment with cannabis before age 16, and have a high genetic risk for schizophrenia, show a different brain development trajectory than low risk peers who use…

First comprehensive study of genetic risks for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in African-Americans performed. Thoughts health innovators?

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic autoimmune diseases that affect as many as 1.6 million Americans. Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) have immune systems that attack their own intestines, resulting in inflammation. According…

Study identifies electrical control of cancer cell proliferation. Thoughts health innovators?

The molecular switches regulating human cell growth do a great job of replacing cells that die during the course of a lifetime. However, when they misfire, life-threatening cancers can occur.  A switch garnering much attention is K-Ras, a protein that in…

Researchers map how antidepressants lessen neuropathic pain. Thoughts health innovators?

In the treatment of pain, a common course is to treat patients with opioid medications, these medications show limited effectiveness for neuropathic pain and come with safety and addiction issues. Because antidepressant medications are not addictive, they…

Study links two proteins that help cells eliminate trash to Parkinson's disease. Thoughts health innovators?

Much like a community’s network for garbage handling, cells also have garbage sites called lysosomes, where proteins, which are functioning badly because of age or other reasons, go for degradation and potential recycling.  Inside lysosomes, other…

Researchers use precision 'demethylating' medicine to fight cancer. Thoughts health innovators?

A main barrier to immune therapy success has been the tumour’s ability to keep the immune system from functioning against the cancer.  The immune cells are there, however, like an unarmed army, they hang around and do nothing. However, certain epigenetic…

New nanotech contrast enables blood test for precancerous growth in colon cancer. Thoughts health innovators?

Colon cancer is often detected in its earliest stages thanks in part to screening technologies like colonoscopy. By snaking a camera through a patient’s intestines, doctors can identify polyps and other abnormal growths that could eventually become…

Fat droplets identified in brains of Alzheimer's patients for the first time. Thoughts health innovators?

Over 47.5 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease or some other type of dementia, according to the World Health Organization. Despite decades of research, the only medications currently available treat the symptoms alone.  Now, for the first…

Researchers use dietary supplement in atherosclerotic mice to lengthen telomeres. Thoughts health innovators?

In human cells, shortened telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, are both a sign of aging and contribute to it.  The effects of chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis and diabetes on blood vessels can be traced back to telomere…

Researchers identify new architecture and mechanism in the human sperm. Thoughts health innovators?

In male fertility normal sperm cells have an oval-shaped head with a cap-like covering called the acrosome. The acrosome contains enzymes that break down the outer membrane of an egg cell, allowing the sperm to fertilize the egg. One of the causes of male…

New T-cell discovery set to rewrite immunology text books. Thoughts health innovators?

To be activated, T cells must first recognize an antigen, receive appropriate costimulatory signals, and then encounter inflammatory cytokines to expand the immune response. This immune response has been harnessed via immunotherapies, treatment that uses…

Story
Introduction

Founder of healthinnovations and the health innovator community. Michelle Petersen has worked in the health and science industry for over 21 years which includes tenure in the NHS and Oxford University.  She has also worked closely with big pharma & academia on events to further both drug research and drug portfolios, helping to market and gather data for various disciplines. 

A medical journalist, Michelle Petersen is ranked in the top 10 percentile of global healthcare KOL’s worldwide.  She is the original founder of healthinnovations, a community, a brand and the first to break news in innovations in health, medical research and pharma.

Healthinnovations is the industry standard for innovation in healthcare and can be found on multiple platforms. 

The aim of Healthinnovations is to bring all sectors of health and ehealth together to further innovation. Whether it be mhealth, healthit, medicine, neuroscience or any other medical sector they can all hamper innovation and the evolution of science if they are not researched or left unimproved.

Healthinnovations is now an established part of the global medical community system of whitepaper validation and verification; a virtual research project highway reaching every corner of the globe.

Healthinnovations helping to further innovations in global Healthcare, to further innovation in all of us.
