Trumpcare faces uphill battle as Congress returns to the capitol

(Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s effort to roll back Obamacare faced growing obstacles on Monday as Republicans who control the U.S. Senate remained divided over how to curb the costs of their proposed healthcare bill and prevent millions from losing coverage. White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, told “Fox News Sunday” that Trump still expected the Senate to pass a healthcare bill either before the start of Congress’ August recess “or maybe a little bit into” the recess. Trump made the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, nicknamed Obamacare, a central plank of his 2016 campaign. “I cannot imagine that Congress would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go!” Trump said early Monday in a post on Twitter. Other Republicans were more pessimistic. “My view is that it’s probably going to be dead,” Senator John McCain of Arizona said of the healthcare legislation on the CBS program “Face the Nation.” Some conservative senators, such as Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, have said they cannot support the proposal unless it goes further to repeal the 2010 Affordable Care Act, the signature legislation of President Barack Obama. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is weighing how to shore up support for the healthcare bill, which would repeal parts of Obamacare and eliminate the tax increases that fund it. The...

In this study, senescent cell distribution and quantity in vastus lateralis muscle were examined in young human adults after a single bout of resistance exercise. To determine the effects of dietary protein availability around exercise on senescent cell quantity and macrophage infiltration of skeletal muscle, two isocaloric protein supplements (14% and 44% in calorie) were ingested before and immediately after an acute bout of resistance exercise, in a counter-balanced crossover fashion. An additional parallel trial was conducted to compare the outcome of muscle mass increment under the same dietary conditions after 12 wee...

In conclusion, a debate exists on whether aging is a disease in itself. Some authors suggest that physiological aging (or senescence) is not really distinguishable from pathology, while others argue that aging is different from age-related diseases and other pathologies. It is interesting to stress that the answer to this question has important theoretical and practical consequences, taking into account that various strategies capable of setting back the aging clock are emerging. The most relevant consequence is that, if we agree that aging is equal to disease, all human beings have to be considered as patients to be treat...

In conclusion, senescence of vascular cells promotes the development of age-related disorders, including heart failure, diabetes, and atherosclerotic diseases, while suppression of vascular cell senescence ameliorates phenotypic features of aging in various models. Recent findings have indicated that specific depletion of senescent cells reverses age-related changes. Although the biological networks contributing to maintenance of homeostasis are extremely complex, it seems reasonable to explore senolytic agents that can act on specific cellular components or tissues. Several clinical trials of senolytic agents are currentl...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major public health problem with an increasing prevalence among adults and children. Children with CKD experience increased morbidity and mortality and growth and metabolic complications and have a high lifetime risk of progression to kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplant. Disease progression to kidney failure further accelerates these metabolic changes and leads to disability and a meaningful reduction in lifespan.
