Johns Hopkins researchers have developed an implant for the application of drugs directly to the sinuses. The device consists of a catheter that allows drugs to reach previously inaccessible surfaces. It is easily implanted in the nasal cavity after surgery or during an office visit. The device also features a novel magnetic fixture to connect the drug injectors. This feature creates a reliable seal for efficient medication passage. The unique construction prevents inflammation from blocking delivery to areas that need treatment the most.
Johns Hopkins researchers have developed PapGene test, a new screening method for endometrial and ovarian cancers. This diagnostic test is easily incorporated into a routine pelvic examination.
