Linking heart attack damage with the spleen and kidney, an integrated approach to the study of heart failure

RS14572_GaneshHalade-3RT-scrlandscape.jpg

Ganesh Halade has published a functional and structural compendium of the simultaneous changes taking place in the heart, spleen and kidneys in mice during the period of acute heart failure immediately following a heart attack and during the longer period of chronic heart failure that comes next.

Stem Cells Fail to Alleviate Peripheral Artery Disease

A stem cell therapy did not improve walking ability in people with peripheral artery disease, although exercise did lead to significant improvements, according to a new study. This is the largest trial of this type of therapy in people with blockages in leg arteries. Scientists were disappointed that stem cell therapy didn’t improve walking, because earlier research suggested it could be beneficial.

After boys and young men with Duchenne muscular dystrophy received cardiac progenitor cell infusions, medical tests indicated that the patients’ hearts appeared improved, results from a new study show. Patients in the study also scored higher on arm strength tests after receiving the cell infusions.

Shining a Light on the Nervous System to Thwart Disease

Researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Vanderbilt University, and University of Pittsburgh have received a four-year, $9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop enhanced infrared light technology (infrared neuromodulation) for potentially treating a variety of diseases, including cardiac arrhythmias, high and low blood pressure, asthma, sleep apnea and diarrhea, one of the leading killers of children worldwide.

Aggressive Testing Provides No Benefit to Patients in ER with Chest Pain

Patients who go to the emergency room (ER) with chest pain often receive unnecessary tests to evaluate whether they are having a heart attack, a practice that provides no clinical benefit and adds hundreds of dollars in health-care costs, according to a new study from researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
