(University of South Florida (USF Health)) A research team led by the USF Health Heart Institute, University of South Florida, identified a mouse model that thoroughly mimics HFpEF syndrome in humans.

Delaying Death Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic
By Joseph ChamieNEW YORK, Jun 15 2020 (IPS) While the end of life remains the inescapable fate of every man, woman and child, death can be delayed as has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout human history.

Two new, powerful small molecules may be able to kill cancers that other therapies can't
(City of Hope) Scientists have identified and developed two potent small molecules that appear to suppress tumor growth in multiple cancers even when other treatments cease to work, possibly due to the development of drug resistance. Called CS1 and CS2, these cancer inhibitor compounds are part of a protein known as " fat mass and obesity-associated protein. " This FTO protein plays a critical role in cancer development and progression, primarily because it regulates cancer stem cells and immune evasion. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
