This study nicely illustrates the importance of the cellular metabolic state of myeloid cells: it highlights that not only the availability of glucose, but also its channeling into different pathways (glycolysis versus glycogen synthesis) contributes to maintaining proper myeloid function. On the Ability of Redundant Blood Vessels to Lower Cardiovascular Mortality https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/11/on-the-ability-of-redundant-blood-vessels-to-lower-cardiovascular-mortality/ A few strategies offer the possibility of growing additional redundant blood vessels, though this is far from rigorously proven. Intermittently provoking hematopoietic stem cells to leave the bone marrow via CXCL12 upregulation, for example. Humans are not completely uniform in their major blood vessel networks, there are variant populations with more redundancy. The value of that greater redundancy is illustrated here by a look at a patient possessing a Kugel's artery, a rare additional vessel that can allow survival in cases of obstructed coronary arteries due to the progression of atherosclerosis. Redundancy in blood vessel networks is a poor substitute for addressing the causes of atherosclerosis, such that no-one suffers blocked vessels, but if redundancy can be engineered, then it would be a benefit. Kugel's artery is defined as a rare anatomical variant of the coronary artery vascular bed consisting of an anastomotic connection between branches of the right coron...

AbstractPurposeGenetic variants may influence the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PKPD) of cyclophosphamide (CY). CY plays a critical role in conditioning chemotherapy for hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), but its use is limited by toxicity. We explored the effect of genetic variants, potentially affecting PKPD of CY, and outcomes after HCT.MethodsThis observational pharmacogenomic study included 85 adults with hematologic malignancies who received reduced intensity conditioning with CY, fludarabine, and total body irradiation. We collected recipient DNA prior to HCT and evaluated 97 candidate variants in 66...
