Carbon Nanodots Do an Ultrafine Job With In Vitro Lung Tissue

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Epidemiological studies have established a strong correlation between inhaling ultrafine particles from incomplete combustion and respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Still, relatively little is known about the mechanisms behind how air particulates affect human health. New work with carbon nanodots seeks to provide the first model of how ultrafine carbon-based particles interact with the lung tissues. Researchers created a 3D lung cell model system to investigate how carbon-based combustion byproducts behave as they interact with human epithelial tissue. They discuss their work in Biointerphases.

A “reset” of regulatory T-cells reverses chronic heart failure in mouse model

University of Alabama at Birmingham

In mouse experiments, scientists have shown a way to hit an immunological “reset button” that ends inappropriately sustained inflammation. This reset reverses the pathologic enlargement and pumping failure of the heart, and it suggests a therapeutic approach to treating human heart failure.

Study: Walk More to Reduce Heart Failure Risk

University at Buffalo

In addition to reducing overall heart failure by 25 percent, increased physical activity benefited two heart failure subtypes defined by cardiac function: reduced ejection fraction, which typically has a worse prognosis, and preserved ejection fraction, which is more common in older adults, especially women and racial-ethnic minorities.

UHN study suggests CIHI model underestimates mortality risk for specialized cardiac surgical centres

University Health Network (UHN)

A study led by researchers at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) at UHN suggests that the model used by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) significantly underestimates mortality in specialized heart surgery centres. The findings show that CIHI's model does not capture all of the medical problems that patients at high risk for surgery have.
