Vigorous Exercise Not Tied To Increased Risk Of Adverse Events In Rare Heart Condition

Vigorous exercise does not appear to increase the risk of death or life-threatening arrhythmia for people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), according to a study supported by the National Institutes of Health. HCM is a rare, inherited disorder that causes the heart muscle to become thick and enlarged and affects 1 in 500 people worldwide. It has been associated with sudden cardiac death in young athletes and other young people. However, the study, published in JAMA Cardiology, found that people with the disease who exercise vigorously are no more likely to die or experience severe cardiac events than those who exercised moderately or not at all.

The observational study, the largest and most extensive to explore the relationship between HCM and exercise, was funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of NIH, and questions restrictions from exercise that ar

Can We Intercept Cancer? A New Frontier in Cancer Research

Imagine cancer as a line on a chalkboard. At the left is a healthy cell. Reading left to right, you can follow a cell’s journey as it begins to develop abnormalities, morphs to become a localized cancer, and finally metastasizes to an advanced cancer at the far side of the spectrum. “As a field, we’ve been spending a lot of time looking to the right. The opportunity now is to look to the left,” says Robert Vonderheide, MD, DPhil, director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Abramson Cancer Center and the John H. Glick Abramson Cancer Center Professor in the Perelman School of Medicine. “Can we intercept those precursor lesions before they become cancer?”

That is the promise of the burgeoning field of cancer interception. The goal of interception is to catch, or intercept, cancer cells as they begin to develop into pre-cancers or very early cancers, and halt or reverse that process. The

ASHA Encourages Families to Learn the Signs of Pediatric Feeding Disorder

With more than 1 in 37 children under the age of 5 affected by pediatric feeding disorder in the United States annually, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is urging families to learn the signs of the condition this May, Pediatric Feeding Disorder Awareness Month.

Pediatric feeding disorder is defined as impaired oral intake that is not age-appropriate and is associated with medical, nutritional, feeding skill, and/or psychosocial dysfunction. It can affect children at various stages in their development, from birth to grade school and beyond.

Signs of pediatric feeding disorder can include the following:

• Arching back when feeding

• Turning head away from food

• Vomiting (more than the typical “spit-up” for infants)

• Having breathing difficulties when feeding

• Coughing and/or choking during or after swallowing

• Crying during mealtimes

• Having difficult

How Electricity Can Heal Wounds Three Times As Fast

Chronic wounds are a major health problem for diabetic patients and the elderly – in extreme cases they can even lead to amputation. Using electric stimulation, researchers in a project at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, and the University of Freiburg, Germany, have developed a method that speeds up the healing process, making wounds heal three times faster.

There is an old Swedish saying that one should never neglect a small wound or a friend in need. For most people, a small wound does not lead to any serious complications, but many common diagnoses make wound healing far more difficult. People with diabetes, spinal injuries or poor blood circulation have impaired wound healing ability. This means a greater risk of infection and chronic wounds – which in the long run can lead to such serious consequences as amputation.

Now a group of researchers at Chalmers and the Unive
