Study Shows Need for Early Support Among People with Uveal Melanoma

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers found that nearly all people diagnosed with uveal melanoma had a number of unmet psychological and health information needs, particularly during the first three months after their diagnoses. The study is the first prospective, longitudinal approach to examine supportive care needs among patients with this disease, and suggested more acute needs among people with uveal melanoma than people with other cancers.

UCLA Scientists Use Color-Coded Tags to Discover How Heart Cells Develop

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers used fluorescent colored proteins to trace how cardiomyocytes — cells in heart muscle that enable it to pump blood — are produced in mouse embryos. The findings could eventually lead to methods for regenerating heart tissue in human adults.

Cardiac Cell Therapy for Heart Failure Caused by Muscular Dystrophy Also Could Improve Patients’ Ability to Move Arms and Legs

Cedars-Sinai

Injections of cardiac progenitor cells help reverse the fatal heart disease caused by Duchenne muscular dystrophy and also lead to improved limb strength and movement ability, a new study shows. The study, published Feb. 22 in Stem Cell Reports, showed that when researchers injected cardiosphere-derived cells (CDCs) into the hearts of laboratory mice with muscular dystrophy, heart function improved along with a marked increase in exercise capacity.

Women Once Considered Low Risk for Heart Disease Shown to Have Evidence of Previous Heart Attack Scars

Cedars-Sinai

Women who complain about chest pain often are reassured by their doctors that there is no reason to worry because their angiograms show that the women don’t have blockages in the major heart arteries, a primary cause of heart attacks in men. But a National Institutes of Health study led by investigators at the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center in the Smidt Heart Institute, shows that about 8% of those women actually have scars on their heart that indicate they experienced a heart attack.
