CorFlow Presents Fundamental New Insights into the Coronary Microcirculation at ACC22.2.2018 09:10Pressemelding

CorFlow Therapeutics AG (www.corflow-therapeutics.ch) today announced that the company will present fundamental new insights into the coronary microcirculation during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Orlando, FL, March 10-12, 2018. CorFlow has since its foundation in June 2016 worked to document that the Controlled Flow Infusion (CoFITM) technology is able to measure the coronary microvascular status and provide therapy to the compromised coronary microcirculation at the same time. Microvascular obstruction (MVO) affects more than half of the acute heart attack patients and is an independent predictor for complications including heart failure which constitutes a high cost burden for the world-wide health care system. To address this large unmet medical need in interventional cardiology, CorFlow has developed an in-vivo model which reproducibly creates MVO in an occlusion-reperfusion model with very low complication rates. Using this in-vivo model, the C

DocsCorp White Paper Encourages Businesses to Review their 2018 Data Protection Strategy – Protection through Technology22.2.2018 09:02Pressemelding

Tough new data protection laws are coming – are you prepared? Reviewing your data protection strategy in 2018, a new white paper published today by DocsCorp, challenges readers to assess their readiness to comply with rigorous upcoming data protection standards affecting businesses in Europe, the Americas and Australia. DocsCorp contends that organizations around the world will be affected by new data laws. The UK’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into force in May 2018. Australia’s new, sweeping National Data Breach (NDB) notification laws already require all businesses to report data breaches. In the United States, many individual states have passed their own data protection laws, and the US federal government has proposed the nationwide Data Security and Breach Notification Act, currently under congressional review. A main focus of GDPR is “Privacy by Design and Default,” which recommends preventative action before breaches occur rather than coping with damages and pe

The GSMA today published a new report that examines the ability of mobile networks to meet the exploding demand for mobile data in the world’s largest and densest cities. The GSMA/Boston Consulting Group report, “Delivering the Digital Revolution: Will Mobile Infrastructure Keep Up with Rising Demand?”, finds that networks in so-called “megacities” such as New York, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tokyo will face a significant gap between mobile data traffic demand and available network capacity, with as much as 48 per cent of traffic demand going unserved in ultra-dense urban areas by 2025. The report highlights that regulatory reform will be critical in closing the projected supply-demand gap and unlocking the economic potential of next-generation mobile broadband. “The current global regulatory landscape has been successful in creating a competitive market that has made mobile connectivity accessible to more than five billion people around the world,” said John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Offic
