Not So Crazy: Pancreas Transplants in Type 2 Diabetes Rising Not So Crazy: Pancreas Transplants in Type 2 Diabetes Rising

Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplants are increasingly performed in patients with type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease, who now account for about 20% of all pancreas transplants in the US.Medscape Medical News

AbstractAimsAcute cellular rejection (ACR) following heart transplantation (HTX) is associated with long-term graft loss and increased mortality. Disturbed mitochondrial bioenergetics have been identified as pathophysiological drivers in heart failure, but their role in ACR remains unclear. We aimed to prove functional disturbances of myocardial bioenergetics in human heart transplant recipients with mild ACR by assessing myocardial mitochondrial respiration using high-resolution respirometry, digital image analysis of myocardial inflammatory cell infiltration, and clinical assessment of HTX patients. We hypothesized that ...

In this study, we used the UK Biobank (n = 440,185) to resolve previous ambiguities in the relationship between serum IGF-1 levels and clinical disease. We examined prospective associations of serum IGF-1 with mortality, dementia, vascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer, finding two generalized patterns. First, IGF-1 interacts with age to modify risk in a manner consistent with antagonistic pleiotropy; younger individuals with high IGF-1 are protected from disease, while older individuals with high IGF-1 are at increased risk for incident disease or death. Second, the association between IGF-1 and risk ...

In conclusion, the present study supports that some age-related diseases as well as education are causally related to longevity and highlights several new targets for achieving longevity, including management of venous thromboembolism, appropriate intake of sugar, and control of body fat. Our results warrant further studies to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of these reported causal associations.

In conclusion, iMSC-sEVs could rejuvenate the senescence of NPCs and attenuate the development of IVDD. Cell Signaling via Exosomes in the Development of Vascular Calcification https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/05/cell-signaling-via-exosomes-in-the-development-of-vascular-calcification/ Vascular calcification is a feature of aging, a process in which cells in the blood vessel wall take on inappropriate identities and activities that are more appropriate to bone tissue. Evidence of recent years implicates chronic inflammation and the presence of senescent cells in this process. Senescent cells caus...

Authors: Muzica CM, Sfarti C, Trifan A, Zenovia S, Cuciureanu T, Nastasa R, Huiban L, Cojocariu C, Singeap AM, Girleanu I, Chiriac S, Stanciu C Abstract Worldwide, the leading cause of chronic liver disease is represented by nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which has now become a global epidemic of the 21st century, affecting 1 in 4 adults, and which appears to be associated with the steadily increasing rates of metabolic syndrome and its components (obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and dyslipidemia). NAFLD has been reported to be associated with extrahepatic manifestations such as cardiovascular d...
