Progranulin (PGRN) is a glycoprotein that is widely expressed among organs, including the central nervous system. PGRN insufficiency is involved in various neurodegenerative disorders such as frontotemporal dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. One of the major causes of neuronal damage is hyperactivation of the cerebrum triggered by upregulation of excitatory systems. In the present study, we examined the possible involvement of PGRN in modulating excitability of the cerebrum using wild type and PGRN-deficient mice. First, we treated wild type and PGRN-deficient mice with seizure-inducib...

In fact now, as countless people have become home caregivers with little or no respite because of COVID-19, reliable caregiving information is even more vital than in the past. With this in mind, Aeroflow’s Healthcare Director of Urology Mica Phillips has agreed to provide answers for us about how diet can affect a person's urinary and fecal continence. Aeroflow Healthcare is a durable medical equipment provider...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...

BACKGROUND: Previous evidence suggests that slower gait speed is longitudinally associated with cognitive impairment, dementia and falls in older adults. Despite this, the longitudinal relationship between gait speed, cognition and falls in those with a di...
