Preventable cardiovascular events place a considerable health and economic burden on the United States. The study was published in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
Tissues grown in the lab from stem cells may fail to live up their therapeutic promise because the cells choose their own fate. For the last 20 years, scientists have worked to engineer tissues for use in a range of conditions, such as osteoarthritis or heart failure.
They do this by placing stem cells those that can become any kind of cell in biodegradable 3-D structures, or "scaffolds," in the laboratory. However, lab-grown tissues often fail to be fully effective as treatments when transplanted into patients. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
According to a study, researchers examine phantom odor perception in middle-aged and older individuals is associated with poor health, persistent dry mouth, and head injury. The study was published online Aug. 16 in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
Lack of estrogen may play a role in the development of anxiety and memory problems, according to a new rodent study. The findings will be presented today at the American Physiological Society's (APS) Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolic Diseases: Sex-Specific Implications for Physiology conference in Knoxville, Tenn.
Exercising at least three times a week for six months reduced stress in a group of family caregivers and even appeared to lengthen a small section of their chromosomes that is believed to slow cellular aging, new UBC research has found
Scientists at the Krembil Research Institute have developed a novel therapeutic treatment that has the potential to stop knee and spine osteoarthritis in its tracks
UCLA researchers have discovered a common process in the development of late-stage, small cell cancers of the prostate and lung. These shared molecular mechanisms could lead to the development of drugs to treat not just prostate and lung cancers, but small cell cancers of almost any organ
A systematic review of the literature into the effects of caffeine on breastfed infants has concluded that there is no robust evidence for positive or negative effects of maternal caffeine consumption during breastfeeding on a breastfed child—according to Dr. Yen-Fu Chen and graduate-entry medical student Aimee McCreedy of the Warwick Medical School
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a promising cell source, easy to harvest and differentiate into a variety of mesodermal tissues including fat, bone and cartilage in regenerative medicine. However, for in vivo implantation, a large quantity of stem cells is required with extensive in vitro cell culture to ensure the success of cell-based therapies
The evidence is mounting that a poor diet plays an important role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in the United States
New research from the University of British Columbia and the University of Saskatchewan is adding new evidence in support of midwives as a safe option for prenatal care, especially for women who have low socioeconomic status
