In this study, scientists screened cells from old animals to identify any RBPs that change upon aging. The screening showed that one particular protein, Pumilio2 (PUM2), was highly induced in old animals. PUM2 binds mRNA molecules containing specific recognition sites. Upon its binding, PUM2 represses the translation of the target mRNAs into proteins. Using a systems genetics approach, the researchers then identified a new mRNA target that PUM2 binds. The mRNA encodes for a protein called Mitochondrial Fission Factor (MFF), and is a pivotal regulator of mitochondrial fission - a process by which mitochondria break u...

(Natural News) Heart disease might sound like it’s practically inevitable, with 17.3 million people dying from it each year – a number that is projected to exceed 23.6 million by the year 2030. However, you actually have far more control over it than you think – and you don’t need to take statins or aspirin...

ConclusionsThis study identified the expected GIB risk with warfarin compared with statins using an analytic tool developed for Sentinel. Our findings suggest that comparators with different indications may be useful in surveillance in select circumstances. Finally, in the presence of differential censoring, stratification by matched pair may reduce the potential for bias in Cox regression analyses.

Authors: Khadir A, Kavalakatt S, Dehbi M, Alarouj M, Bennakhi A, Tiss A, Elkum N Abstract Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) risks persist in patients despite the use of conventional treatments. This might be due to chronic inflammation as reflected in epidemiological studies associating circulating low-grade inflammatory markers with CVD recurrent events. Here, we explored this potential link by assessing plasma dual-specificity phosphatase 1 (DUSP1) levels and comparing them to high-sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) and oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) levels and their associations to conventional CVD risk fa...

Publication date: March 2019Source: Pharmacological Research, Volume 141Author(s): Yafei Chen, Xiaoli Li, Rui Zhang, Yuhong Xia, Zhuo Shao, Zubing MeiAbstractStatin exposure has been reported to improve survival in several cancers. However, studies evaluating the association between statins and prognostic outcomes in patients with lung cancer are conflicting and heterogeneous. Pubmed, EMBASE and reference lists of included studies were searched to identify studies investigating the association between statin exposure and lung cancer prognosis. The primary outcome measure was overall survival (OS) and secondary ones include...

Authors: Klug E, Raal FJ, Marais AD, Smuts CM, Schamroth C, Jankelow D, Blom DJ, Webb DA Abstract South Africa (SA) is home to a heterogeneous population with a wide range of cardiovascular risk factors. Cholesterol reduction in combination with aggressive management of modifiable risk factors, including nutrition, physical activity, blood pressure and smoking, can help to reduce and prevent morbidity and mortality in individuals who are at increased risk of cardiovascular events. This updated consensus guide to management of dyslipidaemia in SA is based on the updated European Society of Cardiology and European At...
