COVID-19: it's all about sepsis, Future microbiology
Initially considered as a community-acquired pneumonia that could worsen into the acute respiratory distress syndrome, it soon became apparent that dysfunction of other organs, in addition to the lungs, is often present in patients with COVID-19; indeed, multiple organ failure (MOF) accounts for most of the deaths from COVID19 [3]. MOF in COVID-19 can involve any organs, the six most common being the lungs, the cardiovascular system, the kidneys, the brain, the liver and the coagulation system. COVID-19 is characterized by a thrombotic endotheliopathy involving the entire body. The resulting endothelial dysfunction may be ...

Study investigates link between lactation and visceral, pericardial fat
(Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center) As demonstrated by multiple studies, women who breastfeed have a lower risk for developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes, though the mechanisms by which these risks are reduced for lactating women are still not fully understood. Duke Appiah, Ph.D., from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and a team of collaborators recently completed a study to see if the presence of excess fat, specifically visceral and pericardial fat, could help explain this finding.

Ageist Attacks Against President Biden Reinforce Outdated Stereotypes —and Hurt Younger People, Too
When President Joe Biden tripped on the stairs up to Air Force One on March 19, the incident immediately touched off a flurry of mockery. Fox News host Sean Hannity declared the President to be “frail.” “He didn’t know where the hell he was,” former President Donald Trump said in an interview with Lara Trump. Saturday Night Live, no stranger to easy jokes about aging Presidents, poked fun both at the fall and at a March 25 press conference when a reporter asked Biden if he planned to run for a second term—a question, quipped SNL’s Michael Che, which was “probably the nicest w...

(Washington University School of Medicine) High cholesterol is the most commonly understood cause of atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that raises the risk of heart attack and stroke. But now, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a gene that likely plays a causal role in coronary artery disease independent of cholesterol levels. The gene also likely has roles in related cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure and diabetes. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
