This study was the first to demonstrate a causal relationship between glial senescence and neurodegeneration. In this study, accumulations of senescent astrocytes and microglia were found in tau-associated neurodegenerative disease model mice. Elimination of these senescent cells via a genetic approach can reduce tau deposition and prevent the degeneration of cortical and hippocampal neurons. Most recently, it was shown that clearance of senescent oligodendrocyte progenitor cells in AD model mice with senolytic agents could lessen the Aβ plaque load, reduce neuroinflammation, and ameliorate cognitive deficits. This seno-therapeutic approach is currently being tested in neurodegenerative diseases and despite expected challenges and difficulties, more detailed investigation is warranted. Lipocalin 2 as a Link Between Metabolic Syndrome and Neuroinflammation https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/07/lipocalin-2-as-a-link-between-metabolic-syndrome-and-neuroinflammation/ Obesity and its immediate consequences, such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes, are associated with greater neuroinflammation and risk of dementia. Excess visceral fat tissue does its part to produce chronic inflammation throughout the body, but here researchers focus on a specific metabolic dysregulation in the liver that produces inflammation in the brain. That inflammation in turn drives a faster progression towards neurodegenerative conditions. The lesso...
AbstractHuman trafficking is an egregious violation of basic human rights that has reached global proportions. Despite the gradual proliferation of social science research and policy endeavors, a contemporary understanding of state human trafficking statutes has received limited discussion. Existing commentary tends to underserve survivor experiences in the law. Using a database of 982 human trafficking state statutes, this study seeks to describe the landscape of how the law acknowledges survivors. In doing so, we found that states acknowledge survivors through 1. formal agency guidelines, 2. survivor rights and services,...

AbstractReproducibility of clinical output is important when investigating therapeutic efficacy in pre-clinical animal studies. Due to its physiological relevance, a swine myocardial infarction (MI) model has been widely used to evaluate the effectiveness of stem cells or tissue-engineered constructs for ischemic heart diseases. Several methods are used to induce MI in the swine model. However, it is difficult, using these approaches, to obtain a similar level of functional outcomes from a group of animals due to interpersonal variation, leading to increased experimental cost. Hence, in order to minimize human intervention...
