Mayo Clinic researchers review modern cases of leprosy

Mayo Clinic

Leprosy has a history that has spanned centuries and societies across the globe. Yet, it continues to be a problem — even in the modern era. Sufferers from the chronic and infectious skin disease still face the social stigma and lack of medical care that people have endured since the origins of the disease itself. Although leprosy can be treated, the World Health Organization reported 216,108 cases in 2016, with some of these patients seeking treatment at Mayo Clinic's Rochester campus.

Vigorous Exercise, Fasting, Hormones Improve Elimination of Toxic, Misfolded, Unnecessary Proteins in Mouse and Human Cells

Harvard Medical School

A new study shows vigorous exercise and fasting improve the ability of human and mouse cells to remove misfolded, toxic, unnecessary proteins Hormones, including adrenaline and glucagon—released during food deprivation and intense physical activity—boost cells’ capacity to dispose of defective proteins The findings reveal a previously unknown mechanism that activates the cells’ protein-disposal machinery, allowing them to adapt their protein content to shifting demands and new conditions The findings set the stage for development of therapies that activate the cells’ protein-disposal system and optimize the body’s natural defenses
