Newswise: New Method Reveals How Damage Occurs in Human Biological Cells Due to Mechanical Fatigue

New Method Reveals How Damage Occurs in Human Biological Cells Due to Mechanical Fatigue

Florida Atlantic University

Researchers have developed a novel way to measure how mechanical fatigue affects biological cells. They also have established the important role of this effect in influencing physical properties of biological cells such as red blood cells (RBCs). This new technique assesses the mechanical integrity and fatigue behavior of RBCs using a general microfluidics method that incorporates amplitude-modulated electro-deformation. This method has important applications for mechanical fatigue studies in conjunction with other microenvironments related to health and materials engineering.

Most American adults do not know that HPV causes oral, anal, and penile cancers

University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

More than 70% of U.S. adults are unaware that human papillomavirus (HPV) causes anal, penile, and oral cancers, according to an analysis led by researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) published in the current issue of JAMA Pediatrics.

Lack of sleep affects fat metabolism

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Researchers found that a sleep schedule built to resemble a work week disrupted lipid metabolism and feelings of fullness after a meal. One night's recovery sleep helped... but not enough to return metabolism to normal.

Predictors of Response to Guadecitabine Found in Relapsed/Refractory AML Patients

Coriell Institute for Medical Research

Patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a leukemia which arises from bone marrow tissue, often see remission following their initial treatment, but for patients whose cancer returns, there are few options. One such option is guadecitabine, a novel DNA hypomethylating drug which slows problematic changes to a person’s epigenetic profile, but the drug is ineffective in a select number of relapsed or refractory AML patients and there has not been a way to determine who stands to benefit and who does not. However, researchers from the Coriell Institute for Medical Research have found certain biomarkers which can indicate a patient’s likelihood for success. Their findings were published in Clinical Epigenetics in July.
