دراسة من Mayo Clinic: الفحص الوعائي المبكِّر عامل رئيسي للحد من خطورة إصابات النساء بأمراض القلب

Mayo Clinic

ثمة اختلاف في الطريقة التي يشيُّخ فيها نظام الأوعية الدموية ومعدَّل تقدُّم مرض تصلُّب الشرايين (زيادة سُمك جدران الشريان أو تكوُّن الانسداد الشرياني) بين الرجال والنساء مع مرور الوقت وتؤثر هذه الاختلافات المرتبطة بالنوع والعمر بشكل مباشر على عوامل إصابة النساء بالأمراض القلبية الوعائية.

A deep dive into cellular aging

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and Harvard University have discovered that mitochondria trigger senescence, the sleep-like state of aged cells, through communication with the cell’s nucleus—and identified an FDA-approved drug that helped suppress the damaging effects of the condition in cells and mice. The discovery, published in Genes & Development, could lead to treatments that promote healthy aging or prevent age-associated diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and more.

Newswise: Neighborhood Features and One’s Genetic Makeup Interact to Affect Cognitive Function

Neighborhood Features and One’s Genetic Makeup Interact to Affect Cognitive Function

Florida Atlantic University

Few studies have examined how the neighborhood’s physical environment relates to cognition in older adults. Researchers categorized 4,716 individuals by apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotype – a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) to determine if there are cognitive benefits of living in neighborhoods with greater access to social, walking and retail destinations. Results showed that the positive influence of neighborhood environments on cognition are strongest among those who are at the lowest risk for AD, specifically APOE ε2 carriers.

With $3 Million NIH Grant Renewal, Mariana Figueiro Pushes the Frontiers of Light Therapy

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

With the support of a recent $3 million grant renewal from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), Mariana Figueiro is perfecting a treatment she developed for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias that helps to regulate sleep and reduce symptoms of depression — and requires no drugs, only light.

Estudo da Mayo Clinic: exame vascular precoce é essencial para reduzir o risco de doença cardíaca em mulheres

Mayo Clinic

A forma em que o sistema vascular envelhece e o ritmo ao qual a aterosclerose, o enrijecimento das paredes arteriais ou o acúmulo de bloqueios arteriais, progride diferem entre homens e mulheres. Essas diferenças relacionadas ao sexo e à idade afetam diretamente o risco de desenvolver doença vascular nas mulheres.
