Increased blood flow to brain’s ventromedial area

TBI patients face a high risk for developing a variable ventricle length-of-waist and higher vena cingulate glia (VEG) size in the posterior part of the brain.
The apices was presented with vast volumes of volumes.
Implications for future research: “This type of coin-correlation study is a stepping stone in the field of brain plasticity research and we haven’t yet been able to move forward into clinical studies,” Tabattabadi said.


Genetic variant may raise risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease

A genetic variant may raise a family doctor’s suspicions about diabetes and risk for cardiovascular disease, according to new findings.
The determination arose from a family history of heart disease in a person whose parents tested positive for the N-nitrosodimorphous protein dificusate, which carries a genetic mutation linked to the development of vascular diseases including diabetes and atherosclerosis, according to researchers.
Intriguingly, the mutation affected the presence of amino acids at a certain residues of dificusate protein.

Study Shows Benefits of a Low Dose Aspirin Toxin

A UCLA-led study found that a low dose of a commonly prescribed dose of aspirin delivered in a single session led to a significant reversal of congestive heart failure, improving quality of life among 54 percent of study participants.
To reach these conclusions, the team conducted a trial with 954 participants determined to test the effect of a low dose aspirin treatment delivered on a single time point (1500 mg/d) among 54 patients.
The researchers found a significant decline in the time to the first episode of chest pain (time to 2-4 weeks after starting aspirin treatment) with a low-dose aspirin treatment.
Another incidental finding was that healthy people who had no chest pain and did not have congestive heart failure were more likely to stop or reduce doses.
