This study demonstrates for the first time that senescent cells secrete functional LTs, significantly contributing to the LTs pool known to cause or exacerbate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Against Senolytics There is no consensus in science that is so strong as to have no heretics. So here we have an interview with a naysayer on the matter of senolytic treatments, who argues that the loss of senescent cells in aged tissues will cause more harm to long-term health than the damage they will do by remaining. To be clear, I think this to be a ridiculous argument given the present evidence. To make it one has to declare the existing results showing extension of healthy life span in mice to be something other than credible data, which just isn't the case. Further, it seems shaky on theoretical grounds to suggest that removal of something like 1% of cells will put onerous stress on the remaining 99%, particularly given that the 1% were contributing to declining stem cell activity via inflammatory signaling. All told, it is hard to take seriously the idea that loss of senescent cells can possibly produce greater degrees of dysfunction in tissue than is caused by the inflammatory signaling of senescent cells. Your new review on senolytics suggests that senolytics may cause more harm than good. Can you summarize your objections and concerns? Here is the argument: 1) theoretically, senol...

ConclusionSubstantial agreement exists among experts regarding many strong recommendations for the improvement of practice concerning the use of muscle relaxants and reversal agents during anaesthesia. In particular, the French Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (SFAR) recommends the use of a device to monitor neuromuscular blockade throughout anaesthesia.

ConclusionsStudents with ID are at increased risk of developing depressive symptoms when exposed to negative social relationships (i.e., peer victimization or TSR conflict). For these students, the benefits of TSR warmth were far less important than the consequences of conflict.

Rivron, Janet RossantOver the past few years, a number of research groups have reported striking progress on the generation of in vitro models from mouse and human stem cells that replicate aspects of early embryonic development. Not only do these models reproduce some key cell fate decisions but, especially in the mouse system, they also mimic the spatiotemporal arrangements of embryonic and extraembryonic tissues that are required for developmental patterning and implantation in ...

This article describes a model of human induced pluripotent stem cell cardiomyocyte-derived engineered heart tissues (hiPSC-CM EHTs) transduced with the calcium sensor GCaMP6f followed by sequential analysis of force and CaT. Average peak analysis demonstrated the temporal sequence of the CaT preceding the contraction twitch. The pharmacological relevance of the test system was demonstrated with inotropic indicator compounds. Force-frequency relationship was analyzed in the presence of ivabradine (300 nM), which reduced spontaneous frequency and unmasked a positive correlation of force and CaT at physiological human h...
