Low-Sodium Diet Might Not Lower Blood Pressure

A new study that followed more than 2,600 men and women for 16 years found that consuming less sodium wasn’t associated with lower blood pressure. The study adds to growing evidence that current recommendations for sodium intake may be misguided.

Professor Klaus Ley, M.D., has been selected as this year’s winner of the Eugene M. Landis Award, the Microcirculatory Society’s top honor, in recognition of his pioneering work in vascular biology and microcirculation. The microcirculation comprises all the small blood vessels in all tissues and organs and their contents (blood plasma and blood cells).

Altered Immune Cells May Both Contribute to Preeclampsia and Offer New Hope for Treatment

In a new study presented today at the APS annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2017, researchers have found that the immune system’s natural killer (NK) cells activate and change in response to placental ischemia. Disrupting these altered cells seems to blunt some of the dangerous complications of the condition, including high blood pressure (hypertension) and inflammation in the mother and growth restriction in the fetus.

4 Exciting Advances in Food and Nutrition Research

New discoveries tied to how food affects our body and why we make certain food choices could help inform nutrition plans and policies that encourage healthy food choices. The Experimental Biology 2017 meeting will showcase groundbreaking research in food policy, nutrition and the biochemistry of food.

Sensor-Filled Glove Could Help Doctors Take Guesswork Out of Physical Exams

Researchers have developed a sensor-filled glove that doctors could wear to accurately measure muscle stiffness, known as spasticity, in patients suffering from stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and other muscle control disorders.

An international team of collaborators retroactively examined the associations between survival among patients diagnosed with invasive epithelial ovarian cancer and those patients’ history of hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and medications taken for those conditions. They found that while hypertension was linked to better outcomes, diabetes was associated with decreased survival.

Seemingly Innocuous Virus Can Trigger Celiac Disease

Infection with reovirus, a common but otherwise harmless virus, can trigger the immune system response to gluten that leads to celiac disease, according to new research from the University of Chicago and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
