UMass Amherst team makes artificial energy source for muscle
(University of Massachusetts Amherst) Muscle physiologist Ned Debold and colleagues at UMass Amherst sought an alternative energy source to replace the body's usual one, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Such a source could control muscle activity, and might lead to new muscle spasm-calming treatments in cerebral palsy, for example, or activate or enhance skeletal muscle function in MS, ALS and chronic heart failure. They report this month that they have made a series of synthetic compounds to serve as alternative energy sources for the muscle protein myosin.

5 Ways to Give Your Brain a Break from All This Stress

‘We Hand-Sanitize and Hold Hands.’ What It’s Like When Your Partner May Have Coronavirus
In February, when Jacob came home from an international trade show in Arizona with a cough, he wasn’t concerned. He slept in a separate room so that his hacking wouldn’t disturb his wife, Caitlin. But within days, Jacob developed a fever and a sore throat so raw it felt like hamburger meat. He could barely sleep or eat. Caitlin sent their doctor’s office a note describing Jacob’s symptoms, and when Jacob arrived for an exam, “they almost tackled him to get a mask on him when he walked in the door,” Caitlin says. “The doctor told us it might be COVID-19.” That possibility put...

Kenslie’s story: A new brother and a new chance at life
February was a very busy month for the Shealy family from Lexington, South Carolina. Lori and Calvin were expecting the family’s fourth child.

The Alarming Reasons Infants Die in Bed
Sharing a bed and objects in bed are the biggest risk factors for sleeping infants, according to a new study. The study published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday found that babies aged 0-3 months were most likely to die as a result of bed-sharing. For older infants ages four months to a year, the greatest risk for sleep-related death is objects in the sleep environment, the study found. The study relied on a database compiled between 2004 and 2012—using information from 24 states—by the National Center for the Review and Prevention of Child Deaths. Researchers analyzed 8,207 deaths in total. Of the younger victims,...

Preferable treatment for MS found in allogenic bone marrow stem cells
(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) Multiple sclerosis (MS) is caused by an immune reaction to myelin proteins that form the myelin insulating substance around nerves, resulting in demyelination. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been considered as an important source for cell therapy for autoimmune diseases such as MS because of their immunosuppressive properties. Researchers compared MSCs isolated from MS patients and from healthy donors to determine if the MSCs from MS patients are immunosuppressively normal or defective.
