|Dr Raffi Luber, co-|
author on a study of
IBD & CAM therapy
Physicians treating patients for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are occasionally asked about the use of complementary and alternative medicines (CAMs) but often have limited knowledge of the therapies and can be quick to dismiss their efficacy.
A study by researchers in the Department of Gastroenterology at the Alfred Hospital has reviewed the available evidence for the most commonly used and discussed CAMs so informed advice can be offered to patients wanting to know about them.
|PhD student Hannah Pearce with Dr Thomas|
Bonnard, first author on the paper describing
a new test for measuring thrombolytic activity
Monash University researchers have developed a novel blood assay that is proving highly effective in researching thrombosis (blood clotting) and which could potentially become a valuable tool in clinical translation.
Heart attack and stroke – leading causes of death and disability in Australia – are mostly caused by thrombosis. Researchers around the world are striving to improve anti-thrombotic treatments that counter the life-threatening blood clots without the associated side-effect of excessive bleeding.
