J Cell Mol Med. 2021 May 5. doi: 10.1111/jcmm.16501. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLimbal stem cells (LSC) maintain the transparency of the corneal epithelium. Chemical burns lead the loss of LSC inducing an up-regulation of pro-inflammatory and pro-angiogenic factors, triggering corneal neovascularization and blindness. Adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (AT-MSC) have shown promise in animal models to treat LSC deficiency (LSCD), but there are not studies showing their efficacy when primed with different media before transplantation. We cultured AT-MSC with standard medium and media used to culture LSC for clin...

In conclusion, sitting for prolonged periods of time without interruption is unfavorably associated with DBP and HDL cholesterol. Exercise Slows Inappropriate Growth of Blood Vessels in a Mouse Model of Macular Degeneration https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/07/exercise-slows-inappropriate-growth-of-blood-vessels-in-a-mouse-model-of-macular-degeneration/ Excessive growth of blood vessels beneath the retina is a proximate cause of blindness in conditions such as macular degeneration. Researchers here provide evidence for physical activity to be influential in the pace at which this process of tissue...

This study examined domestic energy usage and its health implication on residents of Ese ‐Odo and Okitipupa Local Government Areas (LGA), of Ondo State. Systematic random sampling was used to select 103 and 156 respondents in Ese‐Odo and Okitipupa LGA, respectively. It was established that environmental and socio‐economic related attributes influenced residents' choice of domestic energy type. Similarly, burns, blindness, stroke, cataract and pulmonary diseases were the most prevalent self‐reported ill‐health. A relatively weak correlation between domestic energy usage and ill‐health is experienced by the resid...

I like deep quotes. The ones that set my mind off in a new direction. Or make me think a little extra (or sometimes a lot). So in this post I'd like to share 160 of the most thought-provoking quotes I've found over the past 10+ years. I've divided this big post into a few different sections on for example life, love (for yourself and others) and motivation to make it easier to navigate and use. I hope you'll find something here that helps you to find a new perspective and improve your own life. And if you need more motivation and help then I recommend this post with quotes on never giving up and this one filled with quote...
