A cell-based look at how the body responds to immune threats may one day help researchers find better treatments for this major U.S. killer For more than a decade, researchers have known that a core component of human immune function – called complement – can influence how the body responds to immune threats. Now researchers from the NIH and around...
In a study with 918 adults, one in six experienced a cardiac response to a mental stress-inducing event, which was associated with an increased risk for a cardiac event, like a heart attack, compared to adults who didn’t have a stress-induced cardiovascular response.
Researchers created a Food Compass algorithm that scores more than 8,000 foods from least to most healthful. Foods tied to cardiovascular health, like leafy greens, carrots, and berries, scored 100 and gained points for having antioxidants.
For many patients with sickle cell disease, receiving a blood and bone marrow transplant can be thought of as a curative therapy. However, researchers discuss eight recommendations for physician-patient teams to consider before the procedure.
After reviewing the hospital records of hundreds of adults, researchers found a potential link between those who experienced a severe heart attack and whose mothers had elevated cholesterol during the pregnancy.
After assessing the nighttime sleep patterns of 298 infants during their first six months of life, researchers found newborns who slept longer and with fewer interruptions were less likely to be overweight during that period.
A clinical research trial with hundreds of participants was stopped early after it became apparent that neither aspirin nor an anti-clotting medication strengthened recovery among patients with COVID-19 who did not require hospitalization.
After reviewing the electronic health records of 72,147 patients with COVID-19, Cleveland Clinic researchers found those who had previously used a steroid-based nasal spray prior to infection were less likely to be hospitalized, receive intensive care, or die prematurely.
