Probing the mysterious second-wave of damage in head injury patients (10/29/2010)

Why do some of the one million people who sustain head injuries annually in United States experience a mysterious second wave of brain damage days after the initial injury -- just when they appear to be recovering? Limited clinical trials using an innovative new device to monitor brain chemistry on a second-by-second basis are underway to answer that life-and-death question, according to an article in the current issue of Chemical & Engineering News, ACS' weekly news magazine. ...> Full Article


Glucosamine causes the death of pancreatic cells (10/28/2010)

High doses or prolonged use of glucosamine causes the death of pancreatic cells and could increase the risk of developing diabetes, according to a team of researchers at Universite Laval's Faculty of Pharmacy. Details of this discovery were recently published on the website of the Journal of Endocrinology. ...> Full Article


Bicarbonate adds fizz to players' tennis performance (10/27/2010)

Dietary supplementation with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) on the morning of a tennis match allows athletes to maintain their edge. A randomized, controlled trial reported in BioMed Central's open-access Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that those players who received the supplement showed no decline in skilled tennis performance after a simulated match. ...> Full Article


Marathons damage the hearts of less fit runners for up to 3 months (10/26/2010)

Is running a marathon good for you or can it damage the heart? A team of researchers and runners from the Heart and Stroke Foundation have come up with a practical way of answering the question. They used data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to find out what is really going on in the marathoner's heart as the kilometers pile up. ...> Full Article


Mathematical model helps marathoners pace themselves to a strong finish (10/25/2010)

Most marathon runners know they need to consume carbohydrates before and during a race, but many don't have a good fueling strategy. Now, one dedicated marathoner -- an M.D./Ph.D. student in the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology -- has taken a more rigorous approach to calculating just how much carbohydrate a runner needs to fuel him or herself through 26.2 miles, and what pace that runner can reasonably expect to sustain. ...> Full Article


Barrow scientists uncover clues on inflammation in central nervous system (10/24/2010)

Scientists at Barrow Neurological Institute have recently made discoveries about a type of cell that may limit inflammation in the central nervous system -- a finding that could have important implications in the treatment of brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis. The research, led by Barrow's Fu-Dong Shi, M.D., Ph.D., was published in the August 2010 issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine, and simultaneously highlighted in Nature. ...> Full Article


'Lubricin' molecule discovered to reduce cartilage wear (10/22/2010)

A team of researchers in North Carolina has discovered that lubricin, a synovial fluid glycoprotein, reduces wear to bone cartilage, a result that has implications for the treatment of osteoarthritis. ...> Full Article


Burn injuries rapidly deplete vitamin E (10/21/2010)

Severe burn injuries in children have been shown to rapidly deplete the levels of vitamin E in their body's adipose, or fat tissues, a new clinical study has found. Stored levels of this important antioxidant were reduced more in a few weeks than might normally be possible in years. ...> Full Article


Professional sports persons should drink more water (10/20/2010)

Professional sports persons should drink more waterTop sports persons must always perform to their maximum capacity, making them the most vulnerable to the effects of dehydration. Now, a new study conducted by researchers from the Universidad de Castilla la Mancha reveals that 91 percent of professional basketball, volleyball, handball and football players are dehydrated when they begin their training sessions. ...> Full Article


Images shed new light on inflammation (10/18/2010)

Researchers at the University of Calgary's Faculty of Medicine are using an innovative new imaging technique to study how white blood cells (called neutrophils) respond to inflammation, and have revealed new targets to inhibit the response. ...> Full Article

Men perspire, women glow (10/11/2010)

Men perspire, women glowWomen have to work harder than men in order to start sweating, while men are more effective sweaters during exercise, according to new research published in the journal Experimental Physiology. ...> Full Article


Early use of hypertonic fluids does not appear to improve outcomes for severe traumatic brain injury (10/7/2010)

Patients with a severe traumatic brain injury (and not in shock because of blood loss) who received out-of-hospital administration of hypertonic fluids (a solution with increased concentration of certain electrolytes and thought to help reduce intracranial pressure) as initial resuscitation did not experience better 6-month neurologic outcomes or survival compared to patients who received a normal saline solution, according to a study in the Oct. 6 issue of JAMA. ...> Full Article


Surprise: Scientists discover that inflammation helps to heal wounds (10/6/2010)

A new research study published in the FASEB Journal may change how sports injuries involving muscle tissue are treated, as well as how much patient monitoring is necessary when potent anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed for a long time. ...> Full Article
