3D Heart
A pair of case reports published in Heliyon have shed more light on the connection between systemic sclerosis and fatal heart failure, highlighting a need for early diagnosis and treatment. Check out Cardio Diagnostics to learn more about their test kits. A systemic autoimmune disease Systemic sclerosis was once known as scleroderma, as the most...
Heart representation
Researchers publishing in Nature Biotechnology have generated epicardioids, which are pluripotent, self-organizing stem cells that allow for better understanding, research, and potentially prevention and treatment of heart disease. A background of heart development The epicardium, a layer of cells surrounding the heart, plays a major role in human embryonic development. Some of these cells migrate...
Ovary follicle
Scientists have successfully treated ovarian aging in mice with compounds that target fibrosis and promote mitochondrial health [1]. Why do ovaries age faster? Ovarian aging is fascinating because one bodily system completely shuts down while the rest of the body is still in good health. Therefore, studying ovarian aging could provide us with valuable insights...
Hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik, Journal Club returns on Tuesday 25th January at 12:00 Eastern and will be broadcast live on the Lifespan.io Facebook page. The topic for this month is the paper 'CAR T cells produced in vivo to treat cardiac injury', which looks at how researchers created CAR T cells to target scar...
Chest fibrosis
Scientists have created genetically engineered T cells that target activated cardiac fibroblasts in a transient manner, alleviating symptoms of cardiac injury [1]. HeartThe heart is a four-chambered organ located between our lungs. Blood is pumped by the heart through two loops, one to the lungs, oxygenating the blood, and the other out to the rest...
Kidney fibrosis
Publishing in Aging, a team of researchers has reported that periostin, a protein that aids in development during the embryonic stage, is linked to kidney problems related to lipid metabolism in adults. KidneyThe kidney's main function is to filter waste products out of the blood and deliver the resulting urine to the bladder. The functional...
