Damaged Heart Rejuvenated By Stem Cells

...to a stable beneficial outcome on the function and remodeling of the heart after a heart attack. However, the number of stem cells delivered needs to be limited to prevent production of tumors from over-proliferation of the stem cells....

MRI, To Detect Remodeling Of Heart and Help Preserve Function

...pattern of the heart or technically represented as remodeling of the heart. These results raise the possibility that early treatments for regional heart problems could be instituted to prevent or suppress larger problems from developing. To conclude, it is now possible to map changes of the heart in an early s...

New laser technology heals acne scars

... added that non-ablative lasers heal acne scars by remodeling the skin through stimulation of collagen production. “This study demonstrated that both non-ablative laser systems are safe and effective for treating acne scars,” said Dr. Yaghmai. “As with all non-ablative treatments for acne scarring, it is cruc...

Importance Of Early Diagnosis And Treatment For Muscular Dystrophy Patients

...of DCM in DMD/BMD patients may lead to ventricular remodeling and that specific dystrophin gene mutations may predict cardiac involvement, while other mutations may protect against or inhibit development of DCM. For the study, 69 boys, 62 with DMD and 7 with BMD were referred to the Cardiovascular Genetics Cl...

Bad Enzymes Found To Enable Brain Recovery Following Stroke

...alloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) has been found to help in remodeling of the brain 14 days following stroke, in experiments conducted on animal mouse models by Harvard medical school researchers. The results of the study can be found in April issue of the Nature Medicine journal. The enzymes serve to breakdown the co...

There is light at the end of the blind tunnel: prosthetic retinal cells offer hope!

...more work in this area. The researchers say, "The remodeling of inner retinal neurons triggered by photoreceptor degeneration has raised some concerns for the retinal-based rescue strategy after the death of photoreceptors. However, retinal degenerative diseases are heterogeneous as to the time course of the d...

Antibiotic Proved Protective against Heart Tissue Damage and Cell Death – Research Find

..., and possibly long-term prevention of ventricular remodeling – the changes in size, shape and function that may occur to the left ventricle of the heart,’ said Rakesh C. Kukreja, Ph.D., professor of medicine and Eric Lipman Chair of Cardiology at VCU. Kukreja is lead author of the study. Rapamycin blocks pro...

Studying the psycho neurobiology of aging

Consumption of Colas Increase Risk of Osteoporosis in Older Women

...may promote bone loss, tipping the balance of bone remodeling toward calcium loss from the bone. Although some studies have countered that the amount of phosphoric acid in cola is negligible compared to other dietary sources such as chicken or cheese," Tucker says, "further controlled studies should be conducte...

Yet Another Reason not to Smoke

...re a time when there's a lot of tissue healing and remodeling occurring, and we're trying to learn whether there may be increased vulnerability to early failure in smokers." This study, the first to evaluate the effects of nicotine on rotator cuff repair, found that when rats were exposed to nicotine following...

Cigarette Smoking Impedes Tendon-to-Bone Healing

"Trojan Horse" Agent Halts Bone Metastasis in Mice

...chers found that it plays a surprising role in the remodeling of bone tissue. In the normal maintenance of bones, a balance exists between activity of cells known as osteoclasts, which break down and resorb bone matrix, and osteoblasts, which form new bone. Researchers know that tumor cells that metastasize t...

Clues to the Cause of Difficulty With Swallowing

Stressed Mice may Hold Clue to How Fat is Stored: Study

...eir test subjects. "We couldn't believe such fat remodeling was possible, but the numerous different experiments conducted over four years demonstrated that it is, at least in mice," Zofia Zukowska, the study's senior author and a Georgetown professor, said in the statement. "We are hopeful that these findi...

Cigarette Smoking Delays Ligament Healing
