Microbridles for measuring arterial diameter and cardiovascular prevention

Researchers at the CSIC, together with the University of Seville, have developed a low cost microdevice for blood vessel monitoring. The device enables a quantitative and real-time measurement of blood vessel´s properties, which can help the diagnosis and prevention of cardiovascular diseases in humans and animals.

Chimera peptides for early detection of rheumatoid arthritis

Detecting early rheumatoid arthritis is essential in preventing the worst consequences. New ELISA sensors enable a higher sensitivity and specificity than current tests. The sensors are based on synthetic ‘chimera ’ peptides which have, together in a single molecule, regions of several proteins containing the structural changes that happen in rheumatoid arthritis.
