EPA’s New Requirement for Scientific Studies is An Attack on Science, Says ATS

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

In a huge blow to public health, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt announced a new rule that would only allow EPA to consider research studies for which the underlying data are available to the public, thus severely limiting the number of scientific studies that the EPA can use in setting health standards. The new requirements blocking the use of most scientific studies will help big polluters avoid regulations that protect human health.

Soccer Heading—Not Collisions—Cognitively Impairs Players

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Worse cognitive function in soccer players stems mainly from frequent ball heading rather than unintentional head impacts due to collisions, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have found. The findings suggest that efforts to reduce long-term brain injuries may be focusing too narrowly on preventing accidental head collisions. The study published online today in the Frontiers in Neurology.

Columbia University School of Nursing Launches Comprehensive Palliative Care Program for Students at All Levels

Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Columbia University School of Nursing is launching a school-wide palliative care education program that integrates the basic principles of palliative care into the curriculum for nursing students at all levels. The program reflects the recent development of competencies and recommendations from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). At a time when healthcare professionals are bracing for an unprecedented number of Americans who will be living with one or more chronic, life-limiting illnesses, the AACN is encouraging palliative care education for nursing students in pre-licensure programs.

New Cell Therapy Aids Heart Recovery—Without Implanting Cells

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

A team led by Columbia University Biomedical Engineering Professor Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic has designed a creative new approach to help injured hearts regenerate by applying extracellular vesicles secreted by cardiomyocytes rather than implanting the cells. The study shows that the cardiomyocytes derived from human pluripotent stem cells (derived in turn from a small sample of blood) could be a powerful, untapped source of therapeutic microvesicles that could lead to safe and effective treatments of damaged hearts.
