Chicago ChronicleChicago Chronicle | Current Chicago News & Illinois State Headlines
The Chicago Chronicle was first published as a newspaper on May 28 1895 serving the Chicago and surrounding areas. It was the only morning newspaper at the time and supported the Democratic party, although this changed in subsequent years. The Chicago Chronicle closed after publishing its final issue on May 31 1907, after a history of 12 years almost to the day. This new version of the Chicago Chronicle, which began publishing on September 11 2002 is essentially a local Chicago online newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Chicago, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Chicago, Illinois, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Chicago Chronicle.

Results from a landmark clinical trial of an artificial aortic heart valve that does not require open heart surgery at the Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago showed positive outcome, with high survival rates and low rates of stroke.
"This is a major breakthrough. Not only did patients live longer, but their quality of life improved substantially," Fred Leya, MD, co-principal investigator at the Loyola site, said.
The other co-investigator at Loyola is Mamdouh Bakhos, MD.
The heart valve is called the Medtronic CoreValve System. It is deployed with a catheter, which is inserted into an artery in the groin and guided up to the heart. Once in place, the artificial valve takes over the function of a diseased valve.
"It saved me a great deal of pain and suffering from not having to have my chest cracked open," Loyola patient Martin Rogus, who participated in the clinical trial, said.
While recovering from the valve placement, he said, "It almost felt like they didn't do anything."
Rogus said that before receiving the new valve, he could not walk a single block without having to stop and catch his breath. Now he can walk a mile slowly, without stopping.
The valve is being studied in patients with severe aortic stenosis. ...
