For the first time, researchers in the INSERM “Epidemiology of reproduction and infant development” team (Unit 1018 at the “Centre for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health”) compared all of the existing treatments for ectopic pregnancy with respect to their impact on natural fertility during the subsequent two years.
The conclusions of the study reproduced in the journal Human Reproduction indicate that the ability to have a normal pregnancy after an ectopic pregnancy (subsequent fertility) is not linked to the type of treatment, especially the conservation of the Fallopian tube in which the pregnancy was implanted.

A chip that is 100% biocompatible to measure brain activity

Des nouvelles techniques au service de la santé, OpenVibe. Une interface cerveau-ordinateur ou ICO (en anglais Brain-Computer Interface ou BCI) permet à son utilisateur d'envoyer des commandes à un ordinateur ou à une machine uniquement par la pensée.

Researchers have designed a system for sensing brain activity that is 100% biocompatible and made of organic matter. The medium, which is only a few microns thick, is as thin and flexible as cellophane, and yet very tough. The model was tested on an animal suffering from epilepsy. The quality of the brain signal recorded was 10 times better than the traditional brain activity recording systems
