Slowing kidney disease with weight loss: a randomised controlled feasibility study

This long-term kidney damage, defined as a gradual yet substantial loss of filtration and regulatory functions of the kidney, if untreated, can lead to kidney failure. Obesity, when body weight is a risk to good health, affects 30-40% of those with CKD. Obesity is a strong predictor of both new CKD onset and progression to kidney failure. Obesity can also significantly reduce the chance of receiving a kidney transplant when kidneys can no longer function adequately, leaving many with long …

In-silico clinical trials to assess implant performance after shoulder joint replacement

The challenge of conducting a clinical trial to test the performance of joint replacement prosthetics in-vivo results in an expensive and risky lead time for the development of new implant designs. Computational methods have the potential to significantly improve the workflow of implant design via in-silico clinical trials.Anatomical variation in bone morphology across populations also presents a challenge, and new prosthetics will need to be offered in a variety of shapes and sizes to maximise their suitability for a diverse …
