Under conditions designed to better mirror real-world conditions, a new study finds that adults 65 and older are affected more by heatwave-like temperatures than previously reported. The study included intermittent bouts of light activity and was published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
A new study provides evidence for the possibility that mitochondrial dysregulation could be a contributing factor in the development of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. The study is published in Physiological Genomics. It was chosen as an APSselect article for July.
New research identifies parts of the cardiovascular system that are disrupted by long COVID. The study is published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology and was chosen as an APSselect article for June.
Low-load blood flow-restricted resistance exercise helped counter age-related muscle decay “with a modest exercise volume and in a very time-efficient manner.” The study is published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology. It was chosen as an APSselect article for May.
Research in a mouse model of diet-induced obesity found greater disruption to genes involved in heart function when coupled with vitamin A deficiency. The study is published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology. It was chosen as an APSselect article for January.
Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) people assigned male at birth are at increased heart health risk. The delivery route of estrogen medication is known to affect heart health risk in cisgender women. However, research is lacking on how estrogen route affects heart health in the TGD population.
Interrupting prolonged sitting with periodic “activity snacks” may help maintain muscle mass and quality, according to researchers at the University of Toronto in Canada.
New research in rats demonstrates that inhaling amorphous silica particles—of the size released from burning sugarcane—could damage the kidneys. The study, chosen as an APSselect for August, is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology.
Pantothenate acid, also known as vitamin B5, stimulated the production of brown fat in both cell cultures and mice, a new study finds. “[B5] has therapeutic potential for treating obesity and type II diabetes,” researchers conclude. The study was chosen as an APSselect article for July.
New research using a mouse model for multiple sclerosis has uncovered a potential new area to explore for possible treatments for autoimmune disorders.
