Poor Sleep and Heart-Related Death

University of Adelaide

Elderly men who experience extended episodes of interrupted breathing while asleep have a high risk of heart problems. Research shows for the first time that poor blood oxygenation is a good indicator of the chance of heart-related death, which cannot be attributed to sleep apnoea alone.

Financial stress linked to heart disease risk among African Americans

Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Boston, MA -- Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death in the U.S., and African Americans are disproportionately affected. Prior studies have investigated how limited access to material resources due to financial hardship may influence health, but the association between that stress caused by financial hardship and coronary heart disease in African Americans has not previously been examined.

Whole Genome Sequencing Method May Speed Personalized Treatment Of Drug-Resistant Infections

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine say they have added to evidence that rapid resistance gene sequencing technology can accurately speed the identification of specific antibiotic-resistant bacteria strains that sicken and kill some patients. A report on a proof of concept study, published in the January 2019 issue of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, suggests the technology has the potential to hasten the “personalized” choice of antibiotics critically ill patients need.

Deciphering diabetes with ‘game-changing’ human blood vessels from stem cells

Institute of Molecular Biotechnology

Changes in blood vessels are the major cause of death and morbidity in diabetes. For the first time, sci-entists managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish. This breakthrough engineering technology dramatically advances research of vascular dysfunction in diseases like diabetes, identifying a key pathway that prevents diabetic vasculopathy, as reported in the current issue of Nature.

Dry-cured ham bones –– a source of heart-healthy peptides?

American Chemical Society (ACS)

Drinking bone broth is a recent diet fad that proponents claim fights inflammation, eases joint pain and promotes gut health. Simmering animal bones in water releases collagen and other proteins into the broth that may have health benefits, although more research is needed to validate these claims. Now, a new study in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry has shown that ham bones contain peptides that could have cardioprotective effects.
