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...
Airborne particulates
Researchers have concluded that airborne fine particulate matter, which has been consistently linked to cancer, promotes lung cancer via inflammation and not necessarily via mutagenesis [1]. Not just mutations Common wisdom says that carcinogens increase cancer risk mostly by promoting oncogenic mutations. Research has reported that this is true for some carcinogens, such as tobacco...
Cholesterol
Analyzing data from three clinical trials, scientists have shown that excessive inflammation is a much stronger predictor of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in patients on statins than excessive LDL cholesterol levels. These findings can upend the current standard of care for such patients [1]. The two types of risk Statins, drugs that lower the levels...
Brain medicine
Scientists have developed a custom-made molecule that targets a post-translationally modified kinase linked to Alzheimer’s, improving symptoms in a murine model of the disease [1]. A novel approach to neutralizing proteins MAPK is a family of kinases involved in numerous cellular processes. One member of this family, p38 MAPK, is known to be activated by...
Exercise and supplements
In a new systematic review, researchers have shown that combining some dietary supplements and exercise might be beneficial for people over the age of 60 [1]. A double-edged sword Chronic low-level inflammation accompanies many hereditary and age-associated diseases. Inflammation also plays an important role in β€˜healthy’ aging, so it was recently acknowledged as another hallmark...
Tendon inflammation
Researchers publishing in Journal of Nanobiotechnology have found that extracellular vesicles derived from young cells are effective in treating a model of a common tendon disease. Tendinopathy and stem cells Swelling, weakness, tenderness, and tendon pain during activities are the characteristic symptoms of chronic tendinopathy [1], a condition that is exacerbated by aging and obesity...
