In conclusion, long term LRIC could decrease blood pressure and ameliorate vascular remodeling via inflammation regulation. The Damage of a Heart Attack Causes the Immune System to Overreact https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/02/the-damage-of-a-heart-attack-causes-the-immune-system-to-overreact/ Researchers here note a mechanism that causes T cells of the adaptive immune system to spur chronic inflammation and tissue damage following a heart attack. As the researchers note, not all inflammation is the same. Some is maladaptive, and this is particularly the case in older individuals. The aged immune...

We thank the authors for their interest in our review paper “Best practice in reducing the suicide risk in head and neck cancer patients: a structured review”1 and for their constructive and insightful comments. While there are multiple observational studies evaluating suicide risk among HNC patients, there is a conspicuous dearth of evidence relating to suicidal ideation or demonstrating the utility of specific interventions to reduce the frequency or intensity of suicidal thoughts, or indeed reduce risk of suicide attempts or completion in this high-risk population.
