Saving Hearts After a Heart Attack: Overexpression of a Cell-Cycle Activator Gene Enhances Repair of Dead Heart Muscle

RS15005_Jianyi_Zhang-scr.jpg

Biomedical engineers report significant in repairing a damaged heart after a heart attack, using grafted heart-muscle cells to create a repair patch. The key was overexpressing a gene that activates the cell-cycle of the grafted muscle cells, so they grow and divide more than control grafted cells.

New Study: Nearly Half of U.S. Medical Care Comes From Emergency Rooms

Nearly half of all US medical care is delivered by emergency departments, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In recent years, the percentage of care delivered by emergency departments has grown. The paper highlights the major role played by emergency rooms in U.S. health care.

Youth Football: How Young Athletes Are Exposed to High-Magnitude Head Impacts

Researchers examined exposure to high-magnitude head impacts (accelerations greater than 40g) in young athletes, 9 to 12 years of age, during football games and practice drills to determine under what circumstances these impacts occur and how representative practice activities are of game activities with respect to the impacts. This type of information can help coaches and league officials make informed decisions in structuring both practices and games to reduce risks in these young athletes.
