ATLANTA. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — More than five million Americans have atrial fibrillation, or AFib.  It’s a condition that causes an irregular heartbeat, greatly increasing the risk of stroke.

CHICAGO. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the U.S., affecting nearly 27 million adults. It is currently an incurable disease in which the joints deteriorate. Now, a therapy that has been used in eye surgery and to heal the skin of burn victims is being used for the first time in knees. This new form of treatment involves stem cells from amniotic fluid.
