Timing is of the essence when treating brain swelling in mice
(NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) Researchers from the National Institutes of Health have discovered Jekyll and Hyde immune cells in the brain that ultimately help with brain repair but early after injury can lead to fatal swelling, suggesting that timing may be critical when administering treatment. These dual-purpose cells, which are called myelomonocytic cells and which are carried to the brain by the blood, are just one type of brain immune cell that NIH researchers tracked, watching in real-time as the brain repaired itself after injury.

Scientists uncover new path toward treating a rare but deadly neurologic condition
(Massachusetts General Hospital) Molybdenum cofactor (Moco) is a compound that is little known but is essential for life. Children born without the ability to synthesize Moco die young. It has not been possible to create Moco supplements because the compound is so unstable. Studies in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans suggest that by combining, Moco with certain proteins, it becomes stable and can repair deficiency. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

(Houston Methodist) Cardiologists at Houston Methodist recently performed the first catheter-based repair in Houston of a leaky tricuspid valve using the novel TriClip system. Using cardiac ultrasound guidance, doctors were able to implant two TriClip devices in a 75-year-old patient as part of the pivotal TRILUMINATE trial, which seeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the device. The tricuspid valve has traditionally required conventional open-heart surgery to repair or replace it. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Clocks, cancer, and chronochemotherapy
The circadian clock coordinates daily rhythmicity of biochemical, physiologic, and behavioral functions in humans. Gene expression, cell division, and DNA repair are modulated by the clock, which gives rise to the hypothesis that clock dysfunction may predispose individuals to cancer. Although the results of many epidemiologic and animal studies are consistent with there being a role for the clock in the genesis and progression of tumors, available data are insufficient to conclude that clock disruption is generally carcinogenic. Similarly, studies have suggested a circadian time-dependent efficacy of chemotherapy, but cli...

Discussion Common reasons for seeing a breast surgeon would include management of benign or malignant masses with or without breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, and other reasons can be infection or trauma that need surgical treatment. The breast is formed starting around the 6th week of gestation by breast buds along the mammary line. Breasts then develop from the downgrowth of epithelia into the mesenchymal tissue, which continues to grow. Around 8-9 months a pit forms as entry into the lactiferous ducts. “Nipple inversion is caused either by failure of the lactiferous ducts to develop and grow during matur...
