It's also possible that you have an underlying medical condition that affects your ability to get good sleep. According to the sleep experts at National Sleep Foundation, an adult aged 18 to 64 should be sleeping for 7 to 9 hours each night. Older adults, aged 65 and older, are advised to get 7 to 8 hours of nightly sleep. If you're not meeting these sleep recommendations, you're jeopardizing your health.

Authors: Park HJ, Shin KC, Yoou SK, Kang M, Gon Kim J, Jun Sung D, Yu W, Lee Y, Hea Kim S, Min Bae Y, Park SW Abstract Oxidative stress is associated with many cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension and arteriosclerosis. Oxidative stress reportedly activates the L-type voltage-gated calcium channel (VDCCL) and elevates [Ca2+]i in many cells. However, how oxidative stress activates VDCCL under clinical setting and the consequence for arteries are unclear. Here, we examined the hypothesis that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) regulates membrane potential (Em) by altering Na+ influx through cation channels, which conse...

Authors: Wang S, Miao Z, Yang Q, Wang Y, Zhang J Abstract Colon cancer is still one of the most common causes of cancer in human and is characterized by lymphocyte infiltrates and originates from the epithelial cells found in the lining of colon or rectum of the gastrointestinal tract. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are composed of the multipotent stem cell group of stroma and can be differentiated as various cell lineages, such as fibroblasts, osteoblasts, and adipocytes. MSCs provide mechanical and structural support and have potential functions during tumor growth and metastasis. The efficacy of MSC-based therapi...
