Stiff Blood Vessels Linked to Enzyme That Fosters Cell ‘Chatter’

In a study in mice, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers have found that the smooth muscle cells lining the walls of blood vessels can lose their elasticity and lead to vascular stiffening, a condition that can precede heart disease and stroke. The finding, say the researchers, may provide a new focus […]

Immunoporosis: the Role of Immune Cells in Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis, the age-related loss of bone mass and strength, is a serious condition. Bone is constantly remodeled, created by osteoblasts and removed by osteoclasts. With age, the balance of these activities tips towards favoring the osteoclasts, and bone mineral density declines over time as a consequence. It is becoming clear […]

Children are more physically active when encouraged by exergames and smartphone apps

A lot of children are not as physically active as they probably should be. That’s because their parents spend too much time working and not enough cultivating children’s natural desire to explore and play.

Doctors should operate meningiomas even in elderly patients

Meningioma is a type of a benign brain tumour, originating in meninges surrounding the brain. In older patients meningiomas are usually not operated, because surgeries might be painful and potentially dangerous for older people. However, a new study from the University of Helsinki revealed that meningioma can increase life expectancy […]

Scientists developed a tool to tell which cancer patients will respond to immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a relatively young approach to cancer treatment. It basically empowers the body's own immune system to fight cancer cells. However, not all patients respond to immunotherapy very well and sometimes it is just not worth it. But how could we know when immunotherapy is worth a shot? Scientists […]

Fecal Microbiota Transplant as a Treatment for Neurodegenerative Conditions

It is thought that an appreciable fraction of the chronic inflammation of aging is caused by changes in the gut microbiome. There is a bidirectional interaction between the immune system and the microbial populations of the intestinal tract. The immune system gardens these populations, destroying problematic microbes. Microbes secrete metabolites […]
