Temple-Led Research Team Finds Sex-Based Differences in Utilization and Outcomes for Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis in Patients with Deep Vein Thrombosis


(Philadelphia, PA) - One way to treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a procedure called catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT), which allows physicians to place a clot-dissolving agent directly into the clot. CDT has become more commonly used in the United States since research showed it reduced the incidence of post-thrombotic syndrome. Given this increased utilization, a research team led by Riyaz Bashir, MD, FACC, RVT, Professor of Medicine at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Director of Vascular and Endovascular Medicine at Temple University Hospital, sought to identify and describe sex-based differences in utilization and safety outcomes of CDT for treatment of DVT in the U.S.  In research published online by the journal Vascular Medicine, the team found sex-based differences in both utilization and safety outcomes.

Glucose Deprivation in the Brain Sets Stage
for Alzheimer's Disease, New Temple Study Shows


(Philadelphia, PA) – One of the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease is a decline in glucose levels in the brain. It appears in the early stages of mild cognitive impairment – before symptoms of memory problems begin to surface. Whether it is a cause or consequence of neurological dysfunction has been unclear, but new research at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University now shows unequivocally that glucose deprivation in the brain triggers the onset of cognitive decline, memory impairment in particular.

to Address Opioid Use in Pregnancy


(Philadelphia, PA) – Pregnancy is a brief but powerful window of opportunity to identify and treat opioid addiction.
