Changing Metabolite Production in the Aging Gut Microbiome Correlates with Presence of Amyloid-β in the Brain
November 23, 2020
The research materials here examine the age-related changes in metabolite production in the gut microbiome and correlate those changes with the presence of amyloid-β in the brain, a feature of Alzheimer's disease. It is a good companion piece to another recently published paper that links changes in microbial population abundance and Alzheimer's disease. The question...
Fight Aging!
November 23, 2020
Stressing cells a little leads to overall benefits, as maintenance mechanisms such as autophagy are upregulated to more than compensate for any damage. This is known as hormesis, and it is one of the reasons why exercise, calorie restriction, radiation, and heat can produce health benefits at appropriate dose levels. Researchers here explore one of...
Social needs linked to low health-related quality of life among African American cancer survivors
November 23, 2020
Social needs--such as food and economic insecurity, poor housing and neighborhood conditions, and lack of access to transportation--were common in a group of African American cancer survivors in Detroit, and they were associated with lower health-related quality of life (HRQOL). The findings are published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer...
Hot spots identified for colorectal cancer mortality rates among young women
November 23, 2020
Women diagnosed with early-onset colorectal cancer have a greater risk of dying from the disease depending upon their county of residence, according to a study published in Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology. The study is the first to define specific geographic areas in the United States where women diagnosed with colorectal cancer before age 50 have...
Severe infections wreak havoc on mouse blood cell production

Better survival among women after lung cancer surgery
November 23, 2020
There are known differences in the survival rates of women and men with lung cancer. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden set out to investigate potential reasons behind this disparity, such as the presence of other underlying diseases and smoking status. The study, which was published in Chest, shows that women have better survival rates...
