In this study, we investigate mitochondrial energetics and mtDNA methylation in senescent cells, and evaluate the potential of humanin and MOTS-c as novel senolytics or SASP modulators that can alleviate symptoms of frailty and extend health span by targeting mitochondrial bioenergetics. Exercise versus the Hallmarks of Aging https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/06/exercise-versus-the-hallmarks-of-aging/ The paper I'll point out today walks through the ways in which exercise is known to beneficially affect the Hallmarks of Aging. The Hallmarks are a list of the significant causes of aging that I dis...

The Fried frailty phenotype is associated with morbidity and mortality in lung transplant (LTx) candidates, but its clinical application and association with post-transplant outcomes are not well defined. We aimed to assess two alternate frailty indices in LTx candidates and evaluate associations of frailty with early post-transplant outcomes and one-year mortality.

Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) is a system that circulates normothermic perfusate into procured lungs, allowing for improved lung function and lung assessment. We investigated whether ventilation with hydrogen gas during EVLP improves the donation after cardiac death (DCD) lung function, and whether this effect persists after actual transplantation.

Limited data exists describing impact of body mass index (BMI) on post-LVAD outcomes. We sought to define the relationship between BMI and adverse events (AE) following LVAD implantation by examining the ISHLT Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (IMACS) registry.
