Molecule limits heart attack damage in mice

Conclusion This laboratory-based research in mice, which used a simulation designed to mimic the effects of a heart attack, appears to show that the molecule MitoSNO can prevent some of the heart tissue damage of a heart attack and the consequences of the return of blood to the heart (reperfusion). It is important to remember this was a small, early study in mice. Further studies in rodents would be needed to confirm these initial findings as true and accurate. Furthermore, this study was carried out in mice and the results may not be the same for people. Research in humans would be needed to understand fully the human biological processes involved and to establish whether MitoSNO is effective or safe when used in a similar way for real people. These experiments would need to include a rigorous assessment of the safety of the molecule. Despite the limitations, this intriguing research does highlight a potential biological target for further research. Ultimately, researchers hope to harness the protective effects of MitoSNO to reduce the damage in, and therefore aid the recovery of, people who have recently suffered heart failure due to lack of oxygen. Heart failure can have a significant adverse impact on quality of life so any treatment that can prevent or repair damage to the heart would be very valuable. Analysis by Bazian.

Plunge into water at near-freezing temperatures, and your body goes into extreme distress. Your skin screams signals of pain. You can't breathe, because your chest is cramping up. Talking is nearly impossible. Your heart is pounding. Fear mounts -- as it should. Without any protection, you may lose consciousness in under 15 minutes. You'll be dead within an hour.

Conclusion: These results suggest that CPS technology accurately quantifies heart and respiration rates and measure fluid change- in the lungs. Significance: The CPS has the potential to accurately monitor lung fluid status noninvasively and continuously in a clinical and outpatient setting. Early and efficient management of lung fluid status is key in managing chronic conditions such heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, and acute respiration distress syndrome.

First bit of news: I’ve had absolutely no pain in my heel. It’s as good as new. I have to admit I’m still stunned…and I wonder if a more conventional doctor, let’s say a physiotherapist, would have made the connection between my relatively new eyeglass prescription and my heel pain. I doubt it. This makes me wonder how many similar cases there are, of people who think they have plantar fasciitis or tendonitis or, sorry for the mention!  , heel spurs, but whose pain actually originated in a different part of the body, an easy-to-fix part of the body. Mind-blowing, eh? But the reason I&rsq...

Objective. We evaluated the relationship between various risk scores (SYNTAX score (SS), SYNTAX score-II (SS-II), thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) risk scores and Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk scores) and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Subjects and Methods: The study population were selected from among 589 patients who underwent coronary angiography with a diagnosis of NSTEMI. TIMI and GRACE risk scores were calculated. SS and SS-II were calculated in all patients,...
