Why do arteries age? Study explores link to gut bacteria, diet
July 1, 2020
Eat a slab of steak and your resident gut bacteria get to work immediately to break it down. But new research shows that a metabolic byproduct, called TMAO, produced in the process can be harmful to the lining of arteries, making them age faster.
Promising therapy for cardiac regeneration
June 30, 2020
New research gives information in order to understand safety, efficacy and mechanisms of action of a new cardiac therapy.
New study looks at post-COVID-19 emerging disease in children
June 25, 2020
In recent weeks, a multisystem hyperinflammatory condition has emerged in children in association with prior exposure or infection to SARS-CoV-2. A new case series examines the spectrum of imaging findings in children with the post-COVID-19 inflammatory condition known in the US as Multisystem Infla...

Better measure of ‘good cholesterol’ can gauge heart attack and stroke risk in some populations
June 22, 2020
For decades, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol has been dubbed 'good cholesterol' because of its role in moving fats and other cholesterol molecules out of artery walls. People with higher HDL cholesterol levels tend to have lower rates of cardiovascular disease, studies have shown....

New nanoparticle drug combination for atherosclerosis
June 17, 2020
Physicochemical cargo-switching nanoparticles (CSNP) can help significantly reduce cholesterol and macrophage foam cells in arteries, which are the two main triggers for atherosclerotic plaque and inflammation.
Molecules that reduce ‘bad’ gut bacteria reverse narrowing of arteries in animal study
June 15, 2020
Scientists have developed molecules that can remodel the bacterial population of intestines to a healthier state. They also have shown -- through experiments in mice -- that this approach reduces cholesterol levels and strongly inhibits the thickened-artery condition known as atherosclerosis....

Multi-ethnic study suggests vitamin K may offer protective health benefits in older age
June 15, 2020
A new, multi-ethnic study found adults aged 54-76 with low circulating vitamin K levels were more likely to die within 13 years compared to those with adequate levels, suggesting vitamin K may offer protective health benefits as we age.
Ischemic stroke rates decrease during COVID-19 pandemic
June 9, 2020
Research reveals fewer people have been admitted to stroke centers in Michigan and northwest Ohio since the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, and significantly fewer patients received a mechanical thrombectomy for their ischemic stroke.
Heart injury among hospitalized COVID-19 patients associated with higher risk of death
June 8, 2020
Findings from a new study may help doctors better triage coronavirus patients admitted to the hospital.
Protecting the neuronal architecture
June 5, 2020
Protecting nerve cells from losing their characteristic extensions, the dendrites, can reduce brain damage after a stroke. Neurobiologists have demonstrated this by means of research on a mouse model.
