Researchers use precision medicine to reduce the amount of fat in patient's blood. Thoughts health innovators?

Triglycerides, like cholesterol, are lipids. They come from fats carried by food or produced by the human body. Depending on the cause, the accumulation of triglycerides in blood is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular   and pancreatic…

New diagnostic identifies mitochondria dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes. Thoughts health innovators?

Impaired activation of mitochondrial energy metabolism in the presence of glucose has been demonstrated in pancreatic beta-cells from patients with type 2 diabetes. The cause of this dysfunction has been unknown up until now.  A new study from researchers…

Cardiovascular risk factors linked to Alzheimer's disease in human study. Thoughts health innovators?

Currently there is no effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, so the focus is on prevention.  In the future, medical teams may be able to provide patients with useful and actionable information about the impact different risk factors may be having…

Researchers identify schizophrenia's 'master-key' gene. Thoughts health innovators?

Many genes responsible for the creation of synaptic proteins have previously shown to be strongly linked to schizophrenia and other brain disorders, however, until now the reasons have not been understood.  Now, researchers from Cardiff University have…

Lower levels of four proteins crucial for immune response found in T1 diabetes patients. Thoughts health innovators?

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, which primarily surfaces in childhood, where the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, leaving children facing a lifetime of daily insulin therapy to try to keep blood sugar levels…

Researchers image the effect of insulin resistance in the brain, link to Alzheimer's disease. Thoughts health innovators?

It is well-known that insulin resistance is common in people who are obese, pre-diabetic or have Type 2 diabetes. The fact that obesity increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers is known as well.  Now, researchers from Iowa State…

Levels of known biomarker for alcohol consumption validated for binge-drinking. Thoughts health innovators?

The NIAAA defines binge drinking as a pattern of drinking that brings a person’s blood alcohol concentration to 0.08 or above. This typically occurs when men consume five or more drinks in about two hours. For women, it’s consuming four or more drinks in…

Researchers identify serum biomarkers for predicting women at risk of pre-eclampsia. Thoughts health innovators?

Pre-eclampsia is a combination of raised blood pressure (hypertension) and protein in the urine (proteinuria). It is quite common, usually occurring after 20 weeks of pregnancy, affecting between 2 and 8 in 100 women during pregnancy. In most cases it is…

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.
