According to a new study, researchers analyzed that exposure to air pollution is associated with elevated blood sugar levels, poorly functioning blood vessels, heart disease events, and death. Blacks often have higher exposure to air pollution than whites, which may partially explain their higher risk heart disease and death compared to whites. The study was published in American Heart Association journal.

A switch has been discovered that instructs blood vessel cells to become blood stem cells during embryonic development in mice. Using single-cell technology, researchers discovered that two sets of specific factors in the cells work against each other, and when the balance of these changes, the vascular tube cells convert to free blood cells.
A new collaborative study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, offers new insights into the pathogen that does the most harm to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and how it lives and adapts to its host in real-time over months and even years.
Researchers aimed to follow up children whose mothers took part in a trial of antenatal supplementation conducted in Nepal between 2002 and 2004. The trial tested the effect of the United Nations International Multiple Micronutrient Preparation (UNIMMAP), which contains 15 vitamins and minerals, versus IFA only.
Researchers followed up children born during the trial to determine whether those exposed to antenatal MMN supplementation had a higher IQ at 12 years compared with those exposed to IFA only.
Scientists have discovered a new protein, called LHPP, that prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The newly discovered anti-cancer protein can serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer, according to the study published in the journal Nature.
