Bridging the gap: Mechanisms of plasticity and repair after pediatric TBI.

Bridging the gap: Mechanisms of plasticity and repair after pediatric TBI. Exp Neurol. 2019 May 02;: Authors: Sta Maria NS, Sargolzaei S, Prins M, Dennis E, Asarnow RF, Hovda DA, Harris NG, Giza CC Abstract Traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States, and may be associated with long lasting impairments into adulthood. The multitude of ongoing neurobiological processes that occur during brain maturation confer both considerable vulnerability to TBI but may also provide adaptability and potential for recovery. This review will examine and synthesize our current understanding of developmental neurobiology in the context of pediatric TBI. Delineating this biology will facilitate more targeted initial care, mechanism-based therapeutic interventions and better long-term prognostication and follow-up.

It is always pleasant to see new efforts to produce longevity-focused interest sites and publications; Longevity.Technology is a recent example, here publishing an interview with Aubrey de Grey of the SENS Research Foundation that touches on recent developments in the field of rejuvenation research. There have been many such news organization initiatives over the past ten to fifteen years, and all too few of them lasted. Hopefully that will change now that an industry of rejuvenation is forming, beginning with the development of senolytic therapies, and ever greater degrees of funding and attention are directed towards thi...

In this study, researchers studied 438,952 participants in the UK Biobank, who had a total of 24,980 major coronary events - defined as the first occurrence of non-fatal heart attack, ischaemic stroke, or death due to coronary heart disease. They used an approach called Mendelian randomisation, which uses naturally occurring genetic differences to randomly divide the participants into groups, mimicking the effects of running a clinical trial. People with genes associated with lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol, and a combination of both were put into different groups, and compared against those without thes...

AbstractTraumatic brain injury (TBI) is a global health problem that is a common cause of disability and mortality. Despite the availability of many treatment options, none is capable of restoring functional and structural recovery of the damaged brain. Both the results of preclinical and clinical studies suggest the use of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) as a therapeutic strategy for structural and functional recovery in TBI. However, recent evidence shows that the neuroprotective potential of MSCs is due to multiple secretions of bioactive molecules that modulate tissue microenvironment for tissue repair and regeneratio...

We examined human lung tissue from COPD patients and normal control subjects, and found a substantial increase in p16-expressing alveolar cells in COPD patients. Using a transgenic mouse deficient for p16, we demonstrated that lungs of mice lacking p16 were structurally and functionally resistant to CS-induced emphysema due to activation of IGF1/Akt regenerative and protective signaling.

Abstract Intervertebral disc (IVD) has a pivotal role in the maintenance of flexible motion. IVD degeneration is one of the primary causes of low back pain and disability, which seriously influences patients' health, and increases the family and social economic burden. Recently stem cell therapy has been proven to be more effective on IVD degeneration disease. However, stem cell senescence is the limiting factor in the IVD degeneration treatment. Senescent stem cells have a negative effect on the self-repair on IVD degeneration. In this review, we delineate that the factors such as telomerase shortening, DNA damag...

As one of the major causes of mortality and disability worldwide, ischemic stroke has never been received enough attention. Following ischemia/reperfusion injury, long non-coding RNAs have been extensively found to be involved into inflammatory responses, microvascular endothelial cell death, and angiogenesis in the brain. The small nucleolar RNA host gene 12 was found to be significantly increased following transient middle cerebral artery occlusion. However, the effect and underlying mechanism of small nucleolar RNA host gene 12 in ischemic stroke remain to be explored. We established an oxygen-glucose deprivation/reoxyg...

ConclusionsIn our study, we can conclude that the use of the dermal substitute when dealing with RFFF donor site repair can be considered more pleasant both from subjective and objective points of view when compared to the FTSG alone.Level of evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.
