T20 India to take on SA today

first_imgDharamsala: Virat Kohli will be venturing into the unknown with a clean slate, where a few seasoned hands will be backing a group of immensely talented youngsters, in his quest for World T20 title which begins with a three-match bilateral series against South Africa here on Sunday. The 3-0 series win against the West Indies could be called a pre-cursor as it was just after enduring a disappointing end to their ODI World Cup campaign. The real battle begins now with this series against Quinton de Kocks and Kagiso Rabadas, who are also in the midst of a tough transition phase. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhA good spell from Rabada or a cameo from David Miller could pose challenge for the Indians, while some of the others like Test specialist Temba Bavuma or Anrich Nortje will like to prove their credentials in absence of Faf du Plessis or Hashim Amla. There will be around 20 odd matches for captain Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri to build a near perfect combination going into the World T20 in Australia in October next year. There are many questions that the team management will have to answer in the next 13 months during which IPL will also be held. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterSave Kohli, his deputy Rohit Sharma, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah (rested for this series), at least seven slots in playing XI and four more in the 15-member squad are up for grabs, with some bold steps on cards. Retirement is Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s individual call but does the team management intend to look ahead like the selection committee does? It is yet to be known and Rishabh Pant’s indiscretions doesn’t make it easier for Kohli and Shastri. Manish Pandey has been in and around for years now and despite the kind of quality he possesses, the Karnataka batsman has not inspired highest confidence in the chances he got. So will it be Pandey at No 4 or Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer, who was in fine form during the Windies one dayers? The other fascinating aspect will be the future of spin twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, at least in the shortest version. Rajasthan leg-spinner Rahul Chahar is a young talent and is being billed as one for the future. And with all-rounder Krunal Pandya also shaping up well and Ravindra Jadeja’s experience set to come in handy, where does it leave the much in demand wrist spin duo, who had replaced Ravichandran Ashwin and Jadeja (for the better part) post 2017 Champions Trophy. Not to forget, India have a back up finger spinner in young Washington Sundar, who in his U-19 days was a hard-hitting top-order batsman. So next question is where does it leave Kuldeep and Chahal in T20 scheme of things? Last but not the least is the pace department where Bumrah is the only certainty. Deepak Chahar, who many in Indian cricket term as ‘Poor Man’s Praveen Kumar’ for the movement he generates during first spell, is an inspired investment for shortest version. And then there is Navdeep Saini with raw pace and Khaleel Ahmed bringing in the left-arm variety but known to leak runs. Will they be persisted with in the long run? In next 13 months, Kohli will seek all the answers. Squads: India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini. South Africa: Quinton de Kock (c), Rassie van der Dussen (vc), Temba Bauvma, Junior Dala, Bjorn Fortuin, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehlukyao, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, George Linde.

A lot more vigorous Paralyzed Humboldt Bronco in third period with new

first_imgCALGARY – Paralyzed Humboldt Broncos player Ryan Straschnitzki is drenched in sweat after a workout that more closely resembled military boot camp than physiotherapy.The 19-year-old’s two-hour routine at Synaptic: Spinal Cord Injury and Neuro Rehabilitation Centre in Calgary included chin ups, boxing, heavy rope training and pulling himself into a full standing position from his wheelchair just with the use of his arms.“It’s a lot more vigorous here,” said Straschnitzki, who was discharged from the Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia earlier this month.He said the first time he pulled himself to his feet, it was a bit scary.“It was pretty intimidating. But once I did it, I said let’s keep doing this and work on it.”Straschnitzki was paralyzed from the chest down April 6 when a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team and a semi-trailer collided north of Tisdale, Sask. The crash killed 16 people and injured 13 others.“This is going to make Philadelphia seem like a vacation,” said Synaptic’s executive director and founder Uyen Nguyen, who worked as a sports therapist for elite athletes before opening the clinic in 2012.“His body has recovered a little bit more so he’s able to tolerate more.”Straschnitzki was all smiles after an assessment at the centre.“I realized I’ve got some movement back in my core muscles. They’re pretty weak but they’re getting back so I’m pretty excited,” he said.“They should come back stronger and who knows what will happen after.”Nguyen said Straschnitzki is now able to flex some of his stomach muscles and it’s a good sign.“Our assessment shows he has some voluntary control below his level of injury so he’s able to contract some of the abdominal muscles on command. So it’s voluntary. We’ll work on that six pack,” she said.“It’s encouraging.”Nguyen said in the short term, Straschnitzki will be at the centre for up to a year.“We don’t have a discharge date. We don’t have this checklist of you’ve met all these things and goodbye, good luck. What we find in here is most people’s goals evolve over time,” she said.“We’re constantly pushing to see where the limitations are. We don’t know what he’s capable of so, until you try, you don’t know and it’s really a discovery process.”Tom Straschnitzki says his son has made “big time” progress since he began his therapy at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary three months ago.“He’s getting his balance, but that’s also from the training from Philly and the occupational therapists in Foothills also. It’s kind of progressed to where he is now. Now they’re just taking it over and doing it extra hard,” he said.Almost immediately after the April bus crash, Ryan Straschnitzki talked about playing for the national sledge hockey team.Instead of skates, players use double-blade sledges that allow the puck to pass beneath. They have two sticks which have a spike-end for pushing and a blade-end for shooting.Straschnitzki’s dream of returning to the ice came true late last week. He was able to try out the sport which is one of the most popular events at the Winter Paralympic Games.Straschnitzki, wearing full hockey gear, propelled himself along the ice in Okotoks, south of Calgary.“First time on ice since April 5,” Tom Straschnitzki posted on Twitter. “BIGGEST SMILE momma and I have ever seen.”— Follow @BillGraveland on Twitterlast_img read more

Health officials investigate salmonella outbreak that may be linked to cucumbers

first_imgVANCOUVER – The Public Health Agency of Canada says an investigation is underway into an outbreak of salmonella infections involving five provinces, mostly in western Canada.The agency says on its website that the source of the outbreak has not been identified yet, although many of the people who became sick reported eating cucumbers.It says that as of Friday, there have been 37 confirmed cases in British Columbia, five in Alberta, and one case each in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec.The person from Quebec reported travelling to British Columbia before becoming ill, the agency says.The cases occurred between mid-June and late-September, and nine people have been hospitalized.The agency says it’s collaborating with provincial public health partners, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada as part of the investigation.“The outbreak appears to be ongoing, as illnesses continue to be reported,” the statement on the Public health Agency of Canada website said.No deaths have been reported.The agency said there is no evidence at this time to suggest that residents in central and eastern Canada are affected by this outbreak.Salmonella infection usually results from eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs or egg products.Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.

BC Hydro says baby boomers are bigger energy hogs than millennials

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – B.C. Hydro has released a report that finds baby boomers think of themselves as the more energy-conscious generation, despite using more than double the electricity of millennials and annual costs being about $500 more.The report finds baby boomers have a less favourable outlook on the electricity use habits of younger generations, with 53 percent thinking millennials use more electricity than them, while only 40 percent of millennials think boomers use more.B.C. Hydro says boomers use more electricity than millennials because they typically have larger homes, more appliances and luxury amenities, and more energy-consuming home habits. “Forty percent of boomers live in homes that are 2,000 square feet or larger, while 42 percent of millennials live in homes half that size or less. In fact, millennials are three times more likely to live in homes smaller than 500 square feet.”According to the Crown Corporation, boomers’ bigger homes also mean they are likely to have more electronics, appliances and luxury amenities inside. For example, boomers are:Twice as likely to have a pool and three times more likely to have a hot tub;53 percent more likely to have a wine or beer fridge and 60 percent more likely to have heated floors, and;25 percent more likely to have a home entertainment system.For more ways to save energy and money, you can visit powersmart.ca.last_img read more

Cancel PM Modis candidature Mamata

first_imgKOLKATA: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee alleged that Narendra Modi had flouted the Indian Constitution with his statements that 40 Trinamool MLAs are in touch with him and at the same breath said no MLA would join his party. She further added that on the grounds of horse trading, his candidature should be cancelled.”Yesterday he (Modi) said 40 of my MLAs are in touch with him. This will fall under the anti-defection law. He is saying unconstitutional things while holding a constitutional position. Doesn’t he have any shame? He is violating the Constitution and has no right to be the Prime Minister,” Banerjee said at an election rally in Bhadreshwar on Tuesday.last_img

Warwick chosen as centrepiece of Advanced Propulsion Centre

The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has today revealed that its Hub will be located at the University of Warwick.Representing a £1 billion commitment by government and industry as a key part of the Automotive Council’s industrial strategy, the APC will be a hotbed of low carbon automotive R&D.With the Warwick Hub as the focal point, several Spokes located across the country will complete the picture – each running its own projects. The Hub will open this autumn, with further announcements about Spoke locations expected later in 2014.Tony Pixton, APC Chief Executive, said, “The Advanced Propulsion Centre will support the UK automotive industry to become a global leader in the research, development and production of advanced propulsion systems. Through our Hub and Spoke network we will enable collaboration between SMEs, suppliers and vehicle manufacturers to create new powertrain solutions that build UK capability.“The competition to identify the location for the APC Hub has reinforced the fact that the UK is strategically placed to be a worldwide centre for low carbon propulsion systems, R&D and production. The University of Warwick will become the location of the Hub for the APC, at the centre of a Propulsion Nation, offering world class facilities and expertise as part of the 10-year programme of activity.“The APC has already committed more than £130 million of new investment into the UK economy since it opened for business earlier this year. By the end of the year an additional round of project funding will allocate up to a further £75 million as part of the rapid action being undertaken by the APC team.”Following a rigorous selection process, the University of Warwick was chosen to house the Hub, based on a range of capabilities including central location, flexibility and scope for expansion.Business Secretary Vince Cable, Co-chair of the Automotive Council, said, “The Advanced Propulsion Centre is spearheading the UK’s drive to develop new greener engines. The £1 billion investment we are making alongside industry will safeguard more than 30,000 jobs.   “The news that the University of Warwick will host the headquarters for the centre means we can accelerate our research into the next generation of automotive technology.   “Government’s industrial strategy is backing the automotive sector as it goes from strength to strength. We are providing the right environment to give businesses the confidence to invest and create high skilled jobs.”Professor Richard Parry-Jones, CBE, Co-chair of the Automotive Council, said, “I am pleased to note that the Advanced Propulsion System has selected its Hub location which, along with the regional Spokes, will be the key enablers for the rapid development of vehicle propulsion technology in the UK.“Today’s announcement represents another important step in the implementation of the Automotive Council’s industrial strategy to position Britain as an undisputed leader in developing lower carbon technologies for future vehicles.”Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Jackets return home after West Coast trip

The Columbus Blue Jackets expect to win each game, but that wasn’t the case during their second road trip of the season.  After its best start in franchise history, Columbus (6-4-0) dropped three of four West Coast games in six days. During the trip, the Jackets allowed a combined 22 goals. The Jackets lost 6-2 Sunday night in Los Angeles, and now return home.“The minute we stop being aggressive and give up the middle of the ice, we are going to get burnt every time,” coach Ken Hitchcock said.Columbus now faces Phoenix 7 p.m. Wednesday at Nationwide Arena. On Friday they face the Penguins, the defending Stanley Cup Champions, in the same setting at 7 p.m.Before the Anaheim game last Saturday, Hitchcock switched up each of the four lines to look for a change in the team’s late letdown. On the top line, center R.J. Umberger and left wing Jason Chimera joined team captain Rick Nash. Kristian Huselius moved down to the second line with Antoine Vermette and Jakub Voracek.The strategy worked. Columbus won 6-4 against the Ducks and Hitchcock spoke with the media following Columbus’ third road win of the year.“It’s early in the season and guys are learning,” Hitchcock said. “I thought we really stayed with it tonight, and I liked a lot of things we did. We looked more like the team we needed to be to win on the road.”The second line and Nash were the highlight of the night against the Ducks. Nash and Voracek each scored twice, while Vermette scored a goal with two assists. Columbus outshot Anaheim 18-10 in the second period and outscored the Ducks 4-1.Vermette tied the game after a score from the low slot with a backhander. The Ducks responded with a power play goal, but the Jackets came flying back putting up three goals in the final 6:06 of the period.Nash scored at 13:54 after spinning away from a Ducks’ defenseman at the right of the net and shooting it through the slot before a deflection sent it in.Nash is showing why he is considered one of the best in the NHL. He has collected 15 points this year, including six goals and nine assists.“That’s the difference about our team this year,” Nash said. “A couple years ago, we’d get down a goal on the road and fold our cards. But now we don’t let it discourage us. We stick with it.”Pittsburgh (9-2-0) is one of the hottest teams to begin the 2009-10 campaign. The Penguins have a league-high 18 points and are led by forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The two Penguins top the team in points to begin the season. Malkin has 13 points and nine assists, while Crosby follows with 11 points, including six goals.The Jackets’ defense has only allowed one goal each of three home games this season. Top defenseman Mike Commodore will make his 2009-10 home debut after missing the beginning of the season with an injury.A home environment could be exactly what the Jackets need right now.“We can’t hold up,” Hitchcock said. “When we pull back in this league and decide to play a counter-attack game, we aren’t going to be successful. We are just trying to get our players to understand that — don’t play the score, play the game.” read more

Car bursts into flames after driver puts petrol in the wrong hole

first_img“The car is completely destroyed and and all my clothes were burned – apart from my jacket which was an expensive one.”It’s a miracle and I will always be indebted to that man.”It was the most awful thing that has ever happened – but I’m just so embarrassed.”There is another cap on the other side of the car which looks just like a petrol cap – something didn’t feel right as was using it.”Fire crews manage to isolate the fuel supply at the petrol pump while police and ambulance teams were also in attendance as a precaution.The road into the supermarket was closed and paramedics treated motorists for smoke inhalation. Builder Brian Turner, 54, ran straight over to the car and opened the door to get to the terrified woman and drag her out.He said: “All you could see inside the car was flames – it felt like it lasted forever but it was literally seconds.”As soon as I opened the door it went bang again and burned my arms, hands and neck.”She is only a small lady and had the seat right up against the steering wheel so I had to drag her out. “I finally got her out and was running and dragging her along with me – then we heard another explosion when were about ten feet away.”The petrol pump nozzle had ignited.”He managed to get teaching assistant Ms Nicklin to safety about 60 feet away went to check on a work colleague back on the forecourt.The pair were then taken to the superstore by staff to be checked over – but fortunately she was unharmed.Her clothes and her glasses were scorched, but Mr Turner said he believes what saved her was the fact that the large puffer-style jacket she was wearing did not set on fire.He said: “If that jacket had gone up I wouldn’t have been able to get to her.”It’s funny because people keep saying I’m a hero but I just did it – I didn’t think about it.”I’m just glad I was able to help her.”Ms Nicklin, from Lancaster, said: “Brian needs to be recognised for what he did.”Everyone else had run away and I couldn’t get out of the car – he saved my life.”I couldn’t get out because I had parked so close to the pump. Brian Turner rushed over to helpCredit:SWNS/Lancaster Guardian  Brian Turner A driver’s ‘Smart’ car burst into flames on a filling station forecourt after she put petrol into the wrong hole.Julie Nicklin, 54, was trapped inside her vehicle as it became a fireball when she mistakenly poured the fuel into the car’s interior through a detachable cap on one side of the car – not the one containing its fuel tank.The mother-of-two ignited the fuel as she turned the ignition key.The 2005 Fortwo Pulse instantly exploded and trapped her inside, while it caused other motorists on the forecourt to run for cover.She was pulled out of the car by a fellow motorist, who heard a loud “bang” and rushed over on Friday at 8.15am.

Telegraph readers Spitfire stories Pilot Officer Anthony Bradshaw

As a daring new project to circumnavigate the globe in a Spitfire prepares to take off this August, we are asking our readers to contribute their stories and memories of the iconic aircraft. Here, Pilot Officer Anthony Bradshaw’s family recall his wartime Spitfire experience – and how he survived behind enemy lines Once… Anthony Bradshaw began his career in the Royal Air Force at the tender age of seventeen, just as France and Belgium were falling to Adolf Hitler’s relentless drive across central Europe. Britain was in need of pilots, fast – which, as Bradshaw’s son Tim observes, is possibly why his father was given the opportunity: “He only just got in because he was half an inch too short.”

Queens jam suppliers blamed as residents left without water to shower or

Charlie Garnish says his water supply has been affected by the jam factory refilling its water tanksCredit:East News Press Agency The Queen’s jam suppliers have been blamed for draining water supplies from neighbouring homes as residents claim they are unable to run baths and wash up their dishes.Wilkin and Sons in Tiptree, Essex, have been accused of causing a massive drop in water pressure on the nearby Nine Acres housing estate as a result of producing their preserves.  It is understood that the problems come when the factory refills its massive water tanks which are used for irrigation of all the fruits such as strawberries which are grown on site.Resident Charlie Garnish, 27, first reported the issue last month and said he was frustrated at the lack of feedback from the company. He said: “There was not enough pressure to run a shower and I was having to keep water supplies in the fridge for drinking.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. A spokeswoman for the firm said: “In the meantime, we’ve agreed with the factory that we will advise them on the best time of day to refill their water tanks, so that it has minimal disruption for nearby residents.”Chris Newham, joint managing director of Wilkin and Sons, said the firm had been frustrated by the issue “as we know all our new neighbours are”.He said: “Having worked with Anglian Water for over a year to ensure the correct supply was available to our site, we have had to revert to our old supply until such time as the pressure issues with the new supply have been resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.”The manufacturers have been a Royal Warrant holder since 1911 and Her Majesty even visited the site for a VIP tour in 2010. Date: 17 July 2019 Location: Tiptree, Essex Pictured: Charlie Garnish whose water supply has been affected. A jam factory that supplies the Queen has caused problems with water pressure on a newly-built neighbouring estate, families living there have claimed. People on the Nine Acres estate in Tiptree, Essex, said they were often unable to shower or do their washing when the supply dropped. Words: Essex News and Pictures. “We even had to have buckets next to the toilet, it was ridiculous.”I’ve put in an official complaint to Anglian Water and have been in constant discussions with them.”Neighbour Gavin Smith, 42, added: “We’ve only been here for six weeks and it’s lovely so it was a shame that about the water.”Anglian Water, which supplies the estate, said a meeting with Wilkin and Sons is due to take place next week to discuss the problems. read more

Intel 8core Sandy Bridge processor spotted on eBay

first_imgIf you have the cash to spend, Intel will happily sell you one of its top performing processors that includes the latest Sandy Bridge architecture and 6 cores. But keeping an eye on eBay may net you something even faster.Intel is currently sampling the next round of Core processors that push the number of cores up to 8. If you’re producing new chips, then someone is eventually going to get their hands on one before the official release date. What they do with it depends on how important their future relationship with Intel is.If an 8-core chip fell in my lap I’d be installing it in a PC asap, but last week one eBay auctioneer decided to try something a bit sneaky or stupid depending on how you look at it. This person or company had managed to acquire a Core i7 Q19D Engineering Sample Sandy Bridge chip sporting 8 cores, 20MB level 3 cache, and running at 1.6GHz. Rather than keeping it for themselves an eBay listing appeared attempting to sell it. The listing price was $1,359.99. That’s a $360 premium over the current top Core i7-990X Extreme Edition processor with 6-cores.The listing didn’t last long, however, as Intel soon found out about it and requested eBay remove it from sale. We don’t know what happened to the person listing the chip, but we suspect Intel may be attempting to track them down and find out where the leak happened. The eBay listing has the seller as abeeftec_computer and a “Top-rated seller” so they won’t be difficult to find, especially with over 400 listings completed on eBay.Anyone wanting an 8-core Core i7 doesn’t have to wait too long as the chips are expected to see an official release in the fourth quarter of this year. The $1,359.99 price point may be fairly accurate for the final chips the first few weeks they are available.via Tom’s Hardware and eBaylast_img read more

Ensemble Theatres 40th Anniversary

first_img Share 00:00 /01:00 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Courtesy of Ensemble Theatre website.Ensemble Theatre founder, Founder George W. HawkinsIn 1976, George Hawkins was so frustrated with the lack of stage roles for black actors that he decided to start his own theatre company here in Houston. It’s now the oldest African-American theatre company in the Southwestern US. The company George Hawkins founded as the Black Ensemble Theatre became, simply, the Ensemble Theatre in 1985. Eileen Morris the Artistic Director for the Ensemble worked with Hawkins for many years before his death in 1990.“It was a touring company. We use to travel out of his car. So he would take that Cadillac and load it with props and costume pieces and go to different places across the city. He found a space at 1010 Tuam; he renovated that place and that’s where we actually started a season of plays for The Ensemble Theatre. Even though our plays deal with the black experiences they still deal with human experiences,” Morris said.Hawkins’ Ensemble Theatre has grown and hires over 200 performing artists per year, houses 3 performing stages, a main stage auditorium, an arena stage and a grand performance hall. The Ensemble Theatre will begin their 40th year anniversary season next month. The upcoming season includes the regional premier of Mahalia by Tom Stolz and the world premiere of Front Porch Society by Melda Beaty.The audio for this story was voiced by Craig Cohen.

Tiny tube amp is a HAT for your Raspberry Pi

first_imgOne of the Raspberry Pi’s best attributes is how easy it is to give it additional functionality. Some add-ons let you power it via a network cable. Others turn it into a laptop. This one gives it amazing retro sound.Feast your eyes upon the 503HTA Hybrid Tube Amp. What is it, exactly? It’s the first and only 40-pin HAT that lets your Raspberry Pi deliver warm, clean sound to your headphones and speakers. The 503HTA features a 24-bit, 192Khz digital audio converter and it has a single 3.5mm headphone jack — with switchable resistance and gain settings to give you a bit more control over the output.While the 503HTA comes with its own tube, its creators note that you can, in fact, change it out for another one. If you happen to have a treasure trove of pulls or just want to buy one online and experiment, it should be a relatively simple task to swap it in. The Kickstarter page even has a brief tutorial in the FAQ to help you do it.How much is it going to cost you to add a little antique audio awesomeness to your Raspberry Pi? You can secure yourself a Hybrid Tube Amp by pledging $99 to the Kickstarter project, and you can expect to receive it sometime next month.That special price is only available to the first hundred backers, though. Once the initial stock has been snapped up, the price will rise to $149 — though you’ll still be able to save yourself a few bucks by pledging for a pair.last_img read more

Credit: Piramal Imaging GmbH, Berlin Germany.July 7, 2017 — Blood clots in veins and arteries can lead to heart attack, stroke and pulmonary embolism, which are major causes of mortality. In the featured article of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine’s (JNM) July 2017 issue, German researchers show that targeting GPIIb/IIIa receptors, the key receptor involved in platelet clumping, with a fluorine-18 (18F) labeled ligand is a promising approach for diagnostic imaging. Current imaging modalities rely on structural characteristics, such as vascular flow impairment, and do not address the critical molecular components.“Currently available diagnostic techniques of thrombus [blood clot] imaging rely on different modalities depending on the vascular territory,” explained Andrew W. Stephens, M.D., Ph.D., of Piramal Imaging GmbH, Berlin, Germany. “A single imaging modality that could visualize thrombi from various sources in different anatomic regions would be very valuable.”For this preclinical study, researchers successfully developed the novel small molecule tracer 18F-GP1 for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging that binds with high affinity to GPIIb/IIIa receptors. 18F-GP1 showed a strong accumulation at the site of thrombus formation, and its binding ability was not affected by anticoagulants such as aspirin and heparin. The tracer showed rapid blood clearance, and PET imaging in a Cynomolgus monkey model demonstrated the detection of small venous and arterial clots, endothelial damage and emboli in the brain.Due to the favorable pre-clinical results, a first-in-human study of 18F-GP1 is currently underway. Early results from an interim analysis confirm the preclinical data and were presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), June 10-14 in Denver.“Although the current studies are preliminary, 18F-GP1 may provide not only more accurate anatomic localization, but also information of the risk of the clot growth or embolization,” Stephens pointed out. “This may lead to changes in clinical intervention to the individual patient.” Addressing the use of anticoagulants to treat blood clots, he noted, “These drugs can cause significant and life-threatening bleeding. There is a critical need to balance the risk of bleeding against the risk of clotting in each patient. 18F-GP1 may in the future assist in this important decision.”For more information: www.jnm.snmjournals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Mark Ibrahim explains what EPs need from CT imagingPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 5:23Loaded: 3.08%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -5:23 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
