Vigorous exercise, fasting, hormones improve elimination of toxic, misfolded, unnecessary proteins in mouse and human cells

A new study from Harvard Medical School focused on our body’s natural mechanism to “detox” or essentially remove damaged and unnecessary proteins from circulation. These researchers found that this bio-machinery was specifically “ramped up” during periods of intense exercise or

New molecules reverse memory loss linked to depression & aging

Therapeutic molecules have been developed out of Toronto’s Center for Addiction and Mental Health┬áthat target the GABA neurotransmitter system and specifically activate receptors that are impaired in diseases such as depression and aging, causing symptoms in mood dysregulation and memory

Why getting enough sleep reduces cardiovascular disease risk

Studies out of Mass Gen have investigated the biochemical process by how lack of sleep can increase a patient’s risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Their evidence shows how a hormone ‘hypocretin’ is involved in the release of inflammatory white blood

Breakthrough toward developing blood test for pain

Physicians and researchers out of Indiana University are attempting to identify a biomarker in the blood that can better objectively quantify a patient’s reported pain. This data can help better systemize and treat pain, especially in the context of a

Combining morning exercise with short walking breaks helps control blood pressure

In a study published by the American Heart Association, researchers found that in sedentary patients who have been classified as overweight or obese, a significant drop in systolic blood pressure was seen in patients who engaged in a morning exercise

Stress-free training may enhance surgical skill

Research out of UT Houston and Methodist showed that decreasing the stress surrounding surgical training may actually improve learning and mastery of surgical skills by making “surgery a hobby.” This study focused on 15 medical students aspiring for a career

New target could help protect vision following optic nerve trauma

A study recently published in Frontiers in Neuroscience demonstrated that removing the enzyme arginase 2 from the microenvironment following optic nerve trauma helps to prevent retinal death and degeneration by decreasing inflammatory markers and initiating further downstream damage. While this
