Active Young Adults with Type 1 Diabetes Have Muscle Complications: Study

McMaster University

The research team analyzed muscle biopsies of young adults with and without Type 1 diabetes who exceed Diabetes Canada's recommended weekly levels for physical activity. The researchers found structural and functional changes in the power generation parts of the cell, or mitochondria, of those with diabetes. Not only were the mitochondria less capable of producing energy for the muscle, they were also releasing high amounts of toxic reactive oxygen species, related to cell damage.

Researchers Discover That a Blood Thinner Significantly Reduces the Risk of Death After Non-Cardiac Surgery

McMaster University

The study enrolled 1,754 patients in 19 countries, 51 percent of whom were male, with an average age of 70 years. After an average follow-up of 16 months, 11 percent of patients treated with dabigatran experienced a MINS-related event, compared with 15 percent of patients who received a placebo. This translates to a 28 percent reduction in risk for patients receiving dabigatran.
