Brain Benefits Of Exercise Can Be Gained With A Single Protein

A little-studied liver protein may be responsible for the well-known benefits of exercise on the aging brain, according to a new study in mice by scientists in the UC San Francisco Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research. The findings could lead to new therapies…Continue readingBrain Benefits Of Exercise Can Be Gained With A Single Protein

Blood Test Is 94% Accurate At Identifying Early Alzheimer’s Disease

Up to two decades before people develop the characteristic memory loss and confusion of Alzheimer’s disease, damaging clumps of protein start to build up in their brains. Now, a blood test to detect such early brain changes has moved one step closer to clinical use. Researchers from Washington University School…Continue readingBlood Test Is 94% Accurate At Identifying Early Alzheimer’s Disease

TCV Blood Vessel Network Discovered In Bones

A network of very fine blood vessels that connects bone marrow directly with the blood supply of the periosteum that was previously overlooked has now been discovered by Dr. Anika Grüneboom, a young researcher who is now working at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen. She made this groundbreaking discovery while working on her…Continue readingTCV Blood Vessel Network Discovered In Bones

LYVE-1-Expressing Macrophages Maintain Arterial Elasticity

A population of cells called macrophages coat the outer walls of healthy arteries and express a protein called LYVE-1, researchers at National University of Singapore report. The researchers found that when these cells were absent, arteries accumulate collagen and lose their elasticity, becoming stiff and inflexible. Arteries such as the…Continue readingLYVE-1-Expressing Macrophages Maintain Arterial Elasticity

Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Electrophysiological Indicators Identified

The underlying electrophysiological indicators of subarachnoid hemorrhage have been analyzed by a group of researchers in Germany. Subarachnoid hemorrhage is the second most common type of brain hemorrhage, and can lead to ischemic stroke within a matter of days. This type of hemorrhage occurs in the area between the membranes…Continue readingSubarachnoid Hemorrhage Electrophysiological Indicators Identified

Tisagenlecleucel Therapy For Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Approved By FDA

The CAR T-cell therapy tisagenlecleucel, marketed as Kymriah, was recently approved by the FDA for adults with certain types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This is the second CAR T-cell therapy approved for lymphoma and the second FDA approval for this drug. Tisagenlecleucel uses the body’s own T cells to fight cancer.…Continue readingTisagenlecleucel Therapy For Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Approved By FDA

Schizophrenia Patients’ Blood Has Higher Microbial Diversity

The blood of schizophrenia patients has genetic material from more types of microorganisms than that of people without the debilitating mental illness, Oregon State University researchers have found. It is unknown whether this is a cause or an effect of the severe, chronic condition that strikes about one person in…Continue readingSchizophrenia Patients’ Blood Has Higher Microbial Diversity
