Such approaches are being enabled by the rise of computational methods to identify key points of intervention and by new screening techniques that focus on a relevant condition or phenotype, rather than a specific target. Here we apply an i...

An 85-year-old patient with a history of oxygen-dependent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and coronary artery bypass grafting (LIMA-LAD, free vein-circumflex) presented to the emergency department with chest and back pain. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) confirmed acute type a thoracic aortic dissection limited to the ascending thoracic aorta. Aneurysm size is 10 cm. This patient was evaluated by cardiovascular surgeons who offered the patient palliative care secondary to perioperative risk and sent home.

Rats were cage-confined or underwent 16-18 weeks of daily increased activity, via 2 hours of treadmill running per day or free access to voluntary exercise wheels, following which small (≤ 30µm) and large (≥ 40µm) diameter DRG neurons were harvested by laser capture microdissection from flash-frozen lumbar DRGs. Relative mRNA levels were determin...
