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.

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...

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."

"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...
