DreyfussAbstractAimsCardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, thrombosis and atherosclerosis are responses to mechanical forces applied to the endothelium. Endothelial cells respond to hemodynamic mechanical forces such as cellular mechanical stretching. We investigated the expression of glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans and other extracellular matrix molecules in endothelial cells subjected to various mechanical stimuli.Main methodsEndothelial cells were subjected to mechanical stretch in a vacuum s...

There is no cure for people with Alzheimer ’s disease or other dementia, and medical interventions for people with these conditions are limited. Some researchers have sought new ways to help these people maintain the best quality of life as possible even as their conditions progressively worsen.To do this, a group of UCLA-led researchers shifted focus to investigate how personalized goal setting could be used to help people with dementia obtain what is important to them. A newstudy published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Geriatrics Society shows that this approach can improve the lives of these patient...
