Stemcell implantation to repair damaged heart muscle cells
In the first trail of its kind in the world, 60 patients who have recently suffered a major heart attack will be injected with selected stem cells from their own bone marrow during routine coronary bypass surgery. This trial will be performed in Bristol, UK.

The Bristol trial will test whether the stem cells will repair heart muscle cells damaged by the heart attack, by preventing late scar formation and hence impaired heart contraction.

Dr Raimondo Ascione from the University of Bristol and colleagues at the Bristol Heart Institute (BHI) have been awarded a grant of £210,000 from the British Heart Foundation to conduct the clinical trial.

A novel herpesvirus associated with serious eye problems in a great horned owlmembers
Owls are not the classical patients seen in veterinary practices, but they are occasionally seen and need to be examined and treated if possible. An adult great‐horned owl (Bubo virginianus; GHOW) presented with a history of recurrent corneal ulceration of the right eye (OD). Findings included ulcerative superficial keratitis, proliferative conjunctivitis, and iris pigmentary changes. Finally, a novel herpesvirus was identified that caused the signs and was critical to choose the appropriate theray.
